Well today marks the first day at my new job as a cashier at a local grocery store. In the past, I’ve always been a bit nervous starting a new job – today I’m not. It’s just one step towards my next few goals I have – but I need money in order to attain those goals. So to work I go!
Dreaming big has always been part of me, and so far, I have made those dreams come true. So I know I will make the next ones come true too.
Dreams. We all have them. We dream of winning the lottery. We dream of conquering Mount Everest (okay that’s not my dream – but I guess some people dream of that!). Our dreams can be wild, our dreams can be something simple. But whatever they are, they are your dreams and something most of us want to get. We want to accomplish those dreams, we just need to know how to accomplish that.
Dreams will forever be dreams if we don’t do something to make them come true. For the lottery, well buy a ticket and hope for a miracle. For conquering Mount Everest, lots of preparation, and taking time off to go and do it, among many other things required to do that, must be done first. For most dreams, we have to DO something in order to attain that dream. It’s really simple actually to accomplish a dream – make it a goal!
That’s right – make it a goal. Say you’re dreaming of going to Australia. Dream about all you want, look at pictures, check flight information. All of that is great – but if you don’t set a goal for accomplishing that dream of Australia, chances are you’ll never get there. Tell yourself, I want to be in Australia for 6 weeks starting June 1, 2021. There – you’ve now made it a goal. An attainable goal. You have 10 months to get this goal done. Start a savings account. Book a flight. Check out hotels. Once that goal date is in your mind, it’s a lot easier to attain that goal. You know you can do it because you made it a goal, not just a dream.
A dream of mine has now become a goal, and that goal date for me is by my birthday – March 2021. I have to get a notebook to write down everything I need to get done by certain dates – and then I KNOW this dream will come true!
So – let’s make a dream come true today. Make that dream a goal and set a date. I know you can do it!
