Putting Action Into Dreams

Set  your  goals  high,  and  don’t  stop  until  you  get  there.
                                                                                        –  Bo  Jackson

Do  you  lie  in  bed  at  night,  staring  at  the  ceiling  while  you  imagine  the  life  you  desperately  want?  There’s  no  shame  in  admitting  you  do,  because  I  always  do.  Let’s  face  it,  I  bet  you’ve  thought  about  winning  the  lottery  more  than  once.  And  that’s  okay, because  dreams  are  healthy.

But,  I  want  to  talk  about  going  another  step  further  than  dreams;  Goals.  Recently,  I  realised  just  how  many  goals  I  actually  have,  and  without  tangible  proof  they  were  just  a  flying  fancy  fluttering  through  my  thoughts.  What  did  I  do?

This:

I  created  a  Goals  jar,  and  then  filled  it  up  with  everything  I  want  to  achieve.

Why?

Because  I  have  every  intention  of  achieving  every  single  one  no  matter  how  long  it  takes  to  get  there.  Without  something  to  look  forward  to,  to  strive  towards,  I  float  around  wandering  aimlessly.  I  need  direction,  I  thrive  when  I’m  busy  working  towards  my  newest  idea.  It  gives  me  purpose,  a  reason  to  go  on.  However,  I’m  not  saying  it’s  easy.  But  even  with  the  knock  backs,  negativity,  criticism,  and  judgement,  I  still  have  the  goal  that  keeps  me  on  track.  I  still  believe  that  I’m  capable  of  achieving  it  because  I  want  it.  It’s  important  to  me.

Don’t  get  me  wrong,  I  have  massive  aspirations;  buy  an  Aston  Martin  DBS,  pen  a   successful  television  series…  But  I’m  willing  to  put  in  the  time  and  effort  it  takes  to  get  there  because  nobody  else  is  going  to  do  it  for  me.

I’ve  seen  my  dream,  I’ve  created  a  goal,  and  now  it’s  time  for  me  to  achieve  it.

I  hope  you  chase  yours  too.
