Don’t Waste Time! 8 Ways to Turn Your Vision Into Your Reality.

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.

Get support. 

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.

 

Learn These Skills to Bring You Better Luck in the Future

Fortune Cookie Life Lesson #4
It is an excellent piece of skill to know how to guide your luck even while waiting for it.

Take a minute to think about the luckiest person you know. Why is this person so fortunate, and what makes them so lucky?  Is it really luck that this person has or is it the skill that has brought them such good fortune?  It isn’t so much that everything they touch turns to gold but rather the hard work that goes into attaining what they want out of life.  Practice these skills, and you too may receive your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Prepare yourself.

Prepare yourself for what you to succeed in.  Do this by reading, learning, watching, and whatever else you can do to learn the skill that will bring you closer to what you want.  All of your hard earned knowledge will pay off in the end, and you will know what it takes to get to the goal.

Have a vision.

Having a vision of what you want out of life keeps you motivated.  Write it down in a journal, use a dry erase board to write down tasks, or better yet create a vision board to remind you of where you want to be in the not so distant future. A vision will tell you every day of the things you want to accomplish and make you want to do these things rather than dream about them.

Lucky breaks and hard work go hand in hand. 

Hard work is essential to luck and the harder you work, the better your outcome will be.  There may be days that you epically fail but don’t make that stop you from getting to the finish line.   Hard work pays off, and soon you will see your luck changing for the better.

Choices create consequences.

We must never forget that the choices we make have good and bad consequences towards the outcome. It is absolutely ok to make a bad choice as long as we can recognize what the problem was and find another solution to get us to that final goal.  If you make a choice that might not have been the best reevaluate the decision, learn from it and move on.

Remember not to take things that help you get lucky for granted.

We all have some kind of support that helps us along our paths in life.  I know that I have learned some valuable life lessons from many people that have come along the way.  They have all taught me precious life lessons, and for each one, I am grateful and acknowledge that I wouldn’t be where I am today.

If your waiting for luck to come your way, you might be waiting a very long time.  Instead of waiting for your pot of gold to magically appear to make the decision to learn the skills that you need to get you what you want.  At the bottom of the blog, you will find a list that can help you stay focused and motivated in attaining the skills to bring you the best luck.
