Fortune Cookie Life Lesson #8
Watch one’s thoughts become one’s actions.
Where do you see yourself? Do you see yourself wanting more out of the life that you have? These are questions that many of us struggle with daily. You want to move forward but are not sure how to begin, and the thought of the change brings on intense feelings of doubt and uncertainty. You can attain your vision, and you can overcome your fears, it may not happen overnight, but it can happen if you practice these 8 steps to help you take your vision and turn it into reality.
Write down your goals.
Writing down your goals helps you visualize what can happen. Rather than dreaming of what you want you have taken the initiative to write these down and stick with them.
Work small than large.
Break these goals into small goals and significant goals. Sometimes if we try to go all in it can be overwhelming and can lead us to feel discouraged which won’t get us anywhere. When we finish the smaller goal, we feel like we have climbed a mountain and can work toward our bigger picture.
Don’t Get Distracted.
It can be effortless to get distracted, and it is so important to keep an eye on the prize. When these distractions arise do your best to control them and not let the overtake what you have worked so hard to create.
If it doesn’t work tweak it.
Sometimes visions take more than one try, and we have to be patient and realize that if it doesn’t work the first time we try and make it work the second or even third time. Life is not easy, and most things are not just given; it will take some blood, sweat, and tears, but it is all worth it in the end.
Surround yourself with people who want to see you succeed. If you are around people who are not in your corner you will feel like your dream should never be a reality. Those that love you will want to see you shine.
Realize that you want this more than anything.
Hard work is precisely that, and nothing comes easy. Be able to make the conscious decision that this is what your future holds and you will do whatever it takes to get there. This includes sacrifices you may have not thought about and realizing you are making this choice makes the vision so much more important.
Practice makes perfect.
Whatever your dream is you need to practice. Usually when you want to do something that makes you happy you need to learn everything about it. Dive in and learn all you can and then practice the techniques that are taught to get you where you want to be.
Be open to all options.
Don’t shut our anything because you think that it doesn’t fit your box. Many times thinking outside the box will give you the best results. Look at all your options and weigh them before making any clear cut decisions.
Today is the day to show what you are made of, and take your vision and turn it into your reality. Don’t waste time dreaming and start using your time to create the reality you have always wanted.
