Dreaming and setting goals.
This is a part of life, even when people don’t necessarily achieve them. But why would we settle for anything less than what we have set and dreamed of, right?
If you are a dreamer like me, you will probably not want to stay in one place or settle. You will most likely dream of making it big, of traveling the world, of sitting in different fancy and historical libraries, as well as old school coffee shops, wherever you may be.
It is great when we can dream big and achieve them. Greater still if we would find the journey an adventure and that we would be happy along the way.
If we are up for a challenge, it would not matter if it is not easy because we will find a way to make it work. Here are the ways to set big dreams and achieve them, too:
Set the biggest goals imaginable
Begin by setting big goals. Make it as big as you can imagine, even beyond. This way, you have plenty of room to make adjustments. We also believe that even when we don’t exactly achieve what we have originally wanted, we will still be in a good place.
Don’t be afraid to make plans
Spontaneous is a good thing, but planning is better. Planning does not guarantee that it will all go according to plan, but it also means you at least have a direction. When it does not work out the way you expect, you can always improvise along the way, and that is the beauty of it. Your mettle will be tested, and your patience be put on display.
Be willing to make changes
This doesn’t always turn out the way we planned and expect, and this is okay. Successful people do not always expect the plan to work perfectly. They modify, they tweak, and they look at things with a different approach. Every day is a new day to face a challenge.
Embrace failure and learn from it
The best teaching moments are the ones that happen from failure. Be willing to embrace it and learn as much as you can. It may seem difficult and painful at first, but once it is over ( and it will be over), you would have grown into someone better and wiser. Remember the lessons, forget the failures.
Never give up
Of all the things you would do, giving up should not be one of them. It is alright to pause, to take a break and even park the plans but giving up? Please don’t. Keep going. With your goals in mind, you can overcome anything.
Setting goals is easy, working hard and achieving them is a different story. But we know that we all have what it takes to make it happen.
