Dreams and goals start to feel distant if set to the side. Perhaps what you can do seems insignificant, so you wait for one day. When pushed away, it's easy to grow more and more detached. Until one day, you don't recognize them anymore. Committing to small investments over time is hard. It may even feel like they don't leave a dent. But I can assure you it's always better to start. If you start, you'll end up somewhere. If you don't, you'll end up right where you start.
Making space for important things in life is key. Goals need to be challenging yet realistic and attainable. The only way to make space is to reorganize, prioritize and declutter your life. Busyness and responsibility make it hard to balance daily life with a bigger vision. Still, it’s possible to find balance. Set hopeful expectations that are realistic, but be sure that your expectations are big enough. Expect great things to happen. Walk in that belief. What once felt impossible will feel within reach.
If you have a vision, you're accustomed to thinking about goals. The challenge is to determine the best course of action. Responsibilities and priorities compete for your time. Finding a healthy balance is essential. Once found, do whatever it takes to Inspire Yourself to Action. In conclusion, discover what works for you and stick to it. Maintain a healthy balance. Challenge yourself, but create a plan that leads to a sense of accomplishment. Even the smallest step deserves recognition. You'll enjoy the journey as you celebrate small successes along the way.
Dreams, destiny, purpose and goals, it's easy to think about them. Still many of us live in a world of if and if only. The tendency is to look at them from a comfortable distance. Getting close evokes the same fear felt when approaching a mountain. Yes, the mountain may seem insurmountable at times. In fact, it looks impossible to climb when standing in the valley. True courage only comes after you take the first step. Every step forward takes you one step closer to the goal. The further you get from the valley, the smaller the mountain looks.
Every dream unrealized is like a masterpiece never painted, a hit song never sung, a great book never written. Every work of art began as a sketch or a dab of paint on a canvas. Every song started out as a single note. Every book originated from a single thought jotted down on a page. Every dream realized began with a step of faith, a single act of courage. Make today the day you step into greatness. It only takes a single act of courage to take that first step of faith.
