One of the most amazing things in this world is that you can achieve anything you set your mind to and nobody but YOU is responsible for achieving that. No matter how big your dreams are, you have the power to make them come true! I believe that everyone should dream big, the bigger the better. The only thing that can stop you from reaching your goals and living your dream life is YOU.
Here are my steps to reaching your goals and living the life of your dreams:
1.Write down your Dream/Vision/Goal
How are you ever going to live your dream life if you are not clear about what your big dream is? This may seem like an obvious step but it is so important! You need to know what you truly desire in life in order to make it come true.
2. Set short-term and long-term goals
Setting short-term goals is key to get you started on the right path. Short-term goals can be anything you want to accomplish in a day, a week or in a few months. This can help you build new habits and make small changes to your every day life that will eventually add up and make a big difference in the long run.
Setting long-term goals will keep you accountable for achieving your big dream and will make sure you are on the right path. These long-term goals should be reachable within a few months, a year or several years.
3. Think Positive and be Enthusiastic
It’s all in your mindset and the way you look at life. The more enthusiastic you are to reach your goals, the more likely you are to reach them! Get rid of all of the negative energy that surrounds you and that holds you back from reaching your goals. Eliminate thoughts like “I am not good enough”, “I don’t know how to do it” or “It is way too much work” and replace them with thoughts like “I am just as good as everyone else”, “Why not me?”, “I can do anything I set my mind to”. The more positive energy you express, the more positive energy you will receive.
Visualise how you achieve your goals and live your dream life. If you can believe something you are halfway there. This will motivate you to keep going and will slowly but your dreams into reality.
5. Live life on your own Agenda
We all have different goals and dreams in life (luckily) so don’t let yourself be influenced by other people and their ideas on how you should live your life. It is your life and what makes you happy may be very different to what makes them happy. Stop caring of what other people may think of you. Put yourself first and don’t let yourself be placed on other peoples agendas before completing your own.
6. Stop Settling for Less
You think you are never going to reach your dream life and find yourself getting comfortable with what you have now? Do not ever settle for less because you think you can’t achieve something. Do you not want to know that amazing feeling you get when you achieved this thing you truly desire? Stay true to yourself and know your own worth that will always keep you going.
7. Believe in Yourself and be Patient
You will not reach your goals and live the life of your dreams over night. Its the small steps we take every day that will eventually build up and create your dream life. Don’t let time discourage you, instead use it to your own advantage and remember:
“You can have it all. Just not all at once” (Oprah Winfrey)
I have implemented these steps in my life and it has helped me to reach my goals, stay motivated and to always believe in myself. I hope this will also inspire you to dream big and to be confident enough to believe that you can achieve anything you desire in life.
