We all love to dream. They are like our wings to reach for destinations we think are otherwise impossible to reach. They give us hope, an impetus to move forward and make a happy living. I’m sure each one of us dreams of achieving something or the other in life but truly manifesting them in reality is where the actual key lies. But why is it that most of us only stay back dreaming all our life? Why don’t we get up and simply achieve what we desire? I’ll tell you why. We are not able to reach our goals because we are victims of our own thinking. Because we ourselves think that it is impossible for us go that far and so we give up. We might blame it on lack of resources or any other thing but if we really desire something in life, nothing can possibly stop us from achieving it. However, the biggest challenge that today’s youth faces is not about not knowing what they want from life but not knowing how to go about achieving it.
In my last blog post I discussed the fundamentals necessary for achieving one’s goal. Let’s take a quick look at them.
- The foremost thing is realizing what you actually want from life. Think about what really captures your interest. Give it a good thought for unless you know what you truly want, your journey won’t start.
- Second comes strengthening your belief system. Believing in yourself is the key to achieving your dreams. Your confidence and firm determination are the anchors that’ll help you fight all impediments, surmount all difficulties reach your goal.
- The first step of defining your goal starts with writing them down. The toll of everyday pressures often makes us forget our target. Writing them and pasting them at a place that frequently catches our attention will keep reminding us of it.
The final leap lies in taking action towards achieving your target. We often end up procrastinating things, thinking we can always do them later. If we really want to achieve our goal, this must be avoided at all costs. No matter how busy how schedule is, try taking at least one step towards it everyday.
You should know that your journey of achieving your goal should be as enjoyable as the feeling of achieving it is, for you.
