I have plenty of high hopes and dreams, but I am sure to keep my feet on the ground when it comes to planning my goals.

Even if I need to do a lot of preparation or further my education or skills, I plan achievable ways to obtain what I need. I know that, when my goal is achievable, I am destined for success!

I take all the time I need to make a sure-fire action plan. This plan becomes my roadmap for my journey to reach my goals and I detail every step of the way. I make each task one of the steps on my path. Every task I complete, no matter how small, is another step closer to my goal.

An ancient proverb states, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Therefore, I make my first tasks quick and easy ones so I can get started without much ado. Placing easy tasks at the beginning also helps me build momentum that motivates me and keeps me going when I encounter challenges.

Some might say that I have my head in the clouds with my dreams, but I am confident that my plan will get me where I want to go. I take action every day to work toward completing my next task.

Even if a task might take years, like going back to school to get a specialized degree, I am patient because I know I am still moving forward according to my plan.

Today, I intend to make a detailed plan for one of my highest goals, making it real and achievable for me!
