Last week I talked about how to have better luck in life. If you watched that video you’ll know that I believe that luck isn’t a matter of chance but a matter of being prepared to capitalize on the opportunities life presents us with. Piggybacking on last week’s post, I wanted to encourage you to take steps so that you’re better prepared to maximize those opportunities. Opportunity knocks where it finds you so it might as well be while you’re working to make your dreams come true! The best way for your dreams to become reality is by identifying the steps you need to take. I know it sounds simple but I’ve come to find that it’s the simple things that get overlooked most often!
Take out a sheet of paper and write down your dream. Not just the dream itself but the ultimate goal or intention. Then jot down the phases you need to complete to make this a reality. Break each of those phases down into actionable steps that you can take and set a date to them. Start with the first step as soon as possible then give yourself a timeline by when you need to have the next step completed. The hardest part is starting but knowing where to start and what to do can help give you a sense of security and confidence to move forward. I know it can be scary and overwhelming but if it’s something you’ve been dreaming about or longing for, it doesn’t make sense to let any more time go by. As the saying goes,
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.
I’m not saying it will be easy but at least this makes it more simple. As someone who has dedicated the past couple of years to chasing my dream, I can share that although it’s a lot of work, it’s the most rewarding work I’ve ever done! My action plan is in a Google Doc so that I can update, revise, cross things off, and expand upon my dream regularly. It’s also pretty amazing to see the things that I’ve completed, the ones that didn’t work out the way I thought, and the ones that worked out better than I planned. If I have to work to bring a dream to fruition in life, it might as well be my own!
Is this what you needed to hear? Share what dream or intention you’ll be making an action plan for! I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
Sending you lots of love and wishing you all that you need to support you in making your dreams come true!
