“A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true.”
These words by Dr. Greg Reid are completely on point.
Let’s take a second look at your dream. Maybe its realization continues to elude you despite your best efforts. Or maybe your best intentions are not resulting in your best efforts, which makes you wonder if you have what it takes to make your dreams come true. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that now, at this moment, you purpose to give it your all. To try your best even if it feels like your best is not good enough. Write down that dream. Not just on paper or in your computer but also in your heart. Meditation is the pen with which you can write your dream into your heart. Make it a habit to meditate - think deeply - about your dream. This will translate the dream into a goal that you believe in. A goal that you are passionate about. Now go ahead and break that goal into actual concrete steps. This will give you an actionable plan that you can execute. After that, all that you have to do is take action. Implement your plan. That first step, however small, will get you closer to realization of your dream.
