We all have dreams. Dreams make us appreciate existence and strive for more. Once we achieve certain dreams, they become reality, they become like every other day, they lose their magic. We start to chase new dreams we need to chase over and over again. We need to have goals in life, to move forward and to have something valuable to strive toward.
What do you do to make your dreams a reality? There is no overnight success; you have to work hard and be disciplined. Step-by-step, you will reach your dreams if you really want to. These 8 little habits will help you with the chase, taking you one step closer, day by day.
1. Set goals: dreams are dreams, but to make them real, you need tangible goals. Set up goals and stick to them. These don’t have to be revolutionary or game-changing goals, even small goals help you to get closer to your final destination. Let them be milestones you need to accomplish over a certain time. Once you do accomplish a goal, set a new one until your mission is complete and you start to chase a new dream.
2. Take action every day: Whatever your dream might be, act on it every day. If your dream is to be a professional football player, then practice every single day. If you want to be a guitarist, play every day. If you want to be a writer, you should write every day. All dreams demand passion and hard work. You will gradually get better and better at what you do, and you will come closer to your dream without even realizing it.
3. Schedule time to focus: Block time for your dreams and goals. Don’t let others steal this scheduled time — protect it. Set it aside and use it to meet your goals and work on your dreams. You need focus and discipline — every time you get distracted, you fall behind and have to start over. Practice extreme focus during this time. Turn off all other distractions.
4. Read and listen: Read books, blogs, and articles. Listen to ‘reasonable’ podcasts and interviews. Try to read or listen to something valuable each morning while you eat breakfast or work out. Preferably, read success stories about others who achieved similar dreams to yours. You will gain crucial knowledge, and the stories will motivate you every day and help you BECOME A BETTER PERSON.
