Stop dreaming and start doing…
Having a dream or being a dreamer are two different mindsets completely. Those that dream tend to drift through life with no real plans or actions to achieving their goals. Those who dream and take action are at least on the path to achieving that goal. If you’re a dreamer you need to remove your head from the clouds, make a plan and face the obstacles that challenge you along the way.
Here are my 7 tips to help you achieve your goals…
1) Accept responsibility!
“The moment you accept total responsibility in your life is the moment you claim the power to change anything in your life” Hal Elrod
Quit blaming the world for your problems, you are in control of your behaviour and how you react to circumstances. Take control of your thoughts and emotions and accept that the responsibility to make a change lies within you. It won’t be handed to you on a silver plate.
“A negative mind will never give you a positive life” Unknown
I know this is easier said than done but if you can learn to fill your day with positive thoughts and emotions this will have a huge transfer affect towards your goals. Even if you have to fake those positive thoughts at first it will help in creating the right mindset you need for success. Ignore the negative thoughts no matter how powerful they may be. You control your mindset more than you know. Don’t waste your time on negativity.
3) Accept yourself for who you are.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
Starting loving yourself for who you are, flaws and all. No one is perfect and you may never live up to what society expects of you, but you know what – that’s ok! You should hold your head high and be proud of who you are.
4) Change your environment
“When a flower doesn’t bloom you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower” Alexander Den Heijer
The road to achieving your dream may mean ending or creating new relationships. Those who don’t support you, those who don’t believe in you and those who use you need to go. Surround yourself with positive people who have got your back no matter what, these are the most valuable people you need in your life.
5) Make a plan and stick to it until it no longer works.
“Failure is not the opposite of success, inaction is.” -Rois Liano
Set yourself short, medium and long-term goals to achieve and map out your plan to achieving them. Write them down and read them daily but most importantly start applying them. If your plan isn’t working then change your approach, but never the dream / goal.
6) Just do something, anything and learn from failure!
“The time to act is now” Dan Toole
Act now! Even if it’s not successful you need to get the ball rolling. You will learn from your mistakes but in order to make mistakes you have to act. Our whole life is one big learning curve, those who succeed learn from their failures as they had the balls to try. View failures as a positive experience and keep moving forwards.
7) Seek help.
“Ask for help, not because you are weak, but because you want to remain strong” Les Brown
Don’t ever be afraid to ask for help. Others can help you in more ways than you realise and when you stop isolating yourself you can create opportunities and positive outcomes you never thought imaginable. Drop your pride!
I hope these tips help you in some way, shape or form. Be inspired, feel inspired and step outside your comfort zone and take a risk, because living life in regret is no way to live.
