Sure you do. Everybody does.
Most people have dreams that they’ve put on the back burner for some reason.
Maybe they got sidetracked by an unexpected event in life.
Perhaps they decided their dreams were out of reach and just gave up.
They might have even been encouraged to quit dreaming by so-called “realists.”
And, let’s admit, not all dreams come true. In some cases, life might have even turned out better than the dreams.
But I believe that we dreams our dreams for a reason. Our imagination focused on them because they are what our hearts desire.
So, how do you make your dreams come true?
First, they have to be turned into goals. Your mind must think of them as something you can achieve. This makes them believable, but it also might mean an adjustment to align the dreams with your abilities.
For examples, a short person with few athletic skills might dream of playing in the NBA. While that might not be possible, the person can still find a meaningful career in sports as a coach, an announcer or a business manager.
Once you have the goals, you have to figure out how to make them happen. You need a plan.
One way to develop a plan is to figure out smaller goals that will help you get to the bigger goal. Find the steps you need to take to get to where you want to go.
Finally, you have to find take those steps. You have to take the action needed to reach those smaller goals. In a figurative sense, you need to put one foot in front of the other.
In short, you need to do what needs to be done.
Turn your dreams into goals. Develop a plan to reach your goals. Take the steps necessary to accomplish the plan.
That’s how you make your dreams come true.
