Where There Is A Will, There Is A Way….(Achieving Your Goals)

We all have dreams. We all want a better life. But how do we get to that day. How can we bring it to the present instead of wishing for it to happen in the future?

Like many of you, I have been there. And what I have learned I would like to share with you. There is no magic wand or special potion that will make your dreams come true overnight.

However, I will tell you that if you commit to these steps daily, you will find it impossible to remain where you are.

*it can’t be said enough. Write out your goals and send them to someone to keep you accountable. Print them out and hang them where you can see them. Put dates on the, be specific.

* Every morning, wake up an hour earlier and take the time to plan your day. Plan everything. if you don’t write it down, chances are it won’t get done.

* If your not sure what is important, ask yourself this question, “will this task bring me closer to my dreams?”

*If something comes up or gets in the way, remind yourself to get back on task quickly. We all get sidetracked, but we are also the only one to make us stay on task.

If you don’t get the results you want that day, ask for help…New eyes can always give a fresh perspective.

*Never give up. Go back you your why and remind yourself why you started in the first place.

*Go stand in front of a mirror and say to yourself, “It’s is my goal to _____________ by___________ no matter what. My name is ___________ and I am _______________(amazing, awesome, etc.).”
