Can you do me a favor? Look at your life and ask yourself if you are playing it safe. Are you stepping out of your comfort zone to allow your dreams to happen? Or are you sitting back thinking you are not worthy of achieving great things in your life.
If you are dreaming BIG then you are doing it right! I was asked the other day by a friend of mine “How are you able to dream so big? Whenever I dream big I fall back to the ground!”. I was taken back a bit, smiled and then asked her a simple question: “How do you know I haven’t fallen, too?”
Look, I know dreams are scary. They can be intimidating, confusing and will put you in a dizzy trying to figure out if you should peruse them or forget about them. But I also know what it feels like to have this strong powerful pull towards something in your life! This, my friends, is YOUR DREAM! No matter how big or small! No matter if people agree with it or disagree with it… you must start looking at your dreams and start believing in them!! They were put in your life for a reason!
Your dreams should scare you into stepping up and taking action in your life. If you are unhappy – CHANGE! If you want more – CHANGE! If you need a change – CHANGE!
Here are some simple steps that you can use to start turning your dreams into a reality!
1. Be specific! Goals must be specific – get rid of the vague language like “a little”, “some” or “more”. Put a number down and be exact! “ I want to lose 20 pounds”, “ I want to make $75,000”, “I would like to attend 4 business events”.
2. Make goals simple! Clear and focused is the key here. Do not get to caught up in the story of your goal or what that goal may look like under a microscope. Let that happen once you reach your goal!
3. Goals must be tangible! Save the abstract for the art gallery. Your goal must be REAL – something you can see, touch or feel. If you see yourself being healthier or having financial stability, these goals may be nearly impossible to reach. But running a marathon is tangible. Losing 25 pounds is tangible. Seeing a specific number in your bank account is tangible.
4. Write them down! The act of writing your goals out increases the chance that these goals will be achieved! Write every. Single. Day. I swear, it works!
BONUS 5. Share them! Shout your goals out to the world! Let those around you keep you accountable! And when you reach your goal (because I know you will!) shout it out AGAIN!
So tell me, what are some of your goals that you feel are too big? Do you think with this action plan you would be able to achieve them?
You deserve every single dream that you have!!!
