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!
1. What is my most exciting dream for my future?
2. Is this dream real and achievable, even if it should take years to reach my goal?
3. Have I made my roadmap of how I’m going to get there?
