A lot of people have big goals and dreams but they do not achieve them. This may be due to all kinds of reasons.

What can a person do to help accomplish their biggest life objectives? I have a few ideas.

  • Specify your goal. This is a difficult step. Some people just want to be rich or famous. Others want to be able to stop working and retire early. But let’s say you have a goal such as being a musician. How do you define that goal?
  • Dream of your future. If your goal was to be a musician, what does your future look like? One idea would be you playing guitar while singing a love song during the evening at a small cafe. That sounds great to me.

  • Steps to take. What do you need to do to start the process of accomplishing your dream? If you’re a singer you might want to write a lot of songs until you have some great ones. Then after that maybe you practice a lot. But you need to make specific steps that can lead you on the way.
  • Blast off like a rocketship. What does this mean? Well, don’t wait around hoping for the world to change for you. If you’re serious about your dream, do something today and every day to help yourself get there. And don’t take too many baby steps. Don’t think that you’ll do it after the holidays. Blast off right now.
  • Find supporters. This is not that easy. But seek out friends and family members who encourage you and believe in you. People want you to do well by becoming successful.

These are just a few ideas that I have to share. Keep believing in your dream.
