I Promise You

Goals
Don’t read this if you are completely satisfied with your life. I’m addressing only those people who have dreams and want to make their dreams come true. So, if you’re satisfied with your life and you’re living your dreams and have met all your goals, you might want to come back tomorrow. But, I’m guessing if you’re like most people; you have dreams. But, how do we turn dreams into reality?

First, what you don’t do. You don’t sit around visualizing turning dreams into reality. Sit is the key word in the preceding sentence. Making your dreams come true takes action. There’s nothing wrong with visualizing what you want. Professional athletes, artists, and performers do it all the time. But, they also practice, practice, and practice some more so they can turn the visualized dream into a dream come true.

So here’s the short list and how to make your dreams come true:

  1. Goals – yep, you’ve heard it all before. But, do you set goals? Do you write them down and carry them with you all the time? Ask the top achievers in any field and I bet you’ll find out they are goal setters and they write them down.
  2. Review the goals all the time and update them. Life changes. You’ll change and so will your goals.
  3. Make some lifetime goals. I have my list. It’s amazing what happens when you write them down. Things you thought were a far-off dream come true more quickly than you realize.
  4. Now that you have your goals, you need to break each one down into the things you need to accomplish to meet the goal. Let’s say you want to lose 25 pounds. You’ll have to have a plan of diet and exercise. You’ll need to track what you eat and how much you work out. Want to learn how to speak Italian? The plan is easy. You’ll need lessons. But, how will you learn? Will you hire a tutor, take classes, or learn by self-study? Or, maybe go live in Italy for a year.
  5. You have the goals and the plan – now just go do it. It’s that simple. Well, not that simple as it requires sacrifice and persistence. And, if your dreams are really big you’ll find all kinds of reasons to quit. Plenty of people who have given up on their dreams will try and tell you why you need to join them. But, action is the key. You have to do the work.

It’s your life to make into what you wish. Time isn’t an issue. You have all there is to have. Only two things can hold you back. Lack of belief in yourself and lack of action.

Come on – what do you really want for your life? What do you really want to do? Write it down. Share it with your best friend.

I promise you it will be life changing.

  1. I can attest to the power of “writing it down” when it comes to goals. I’ve lost 40 pounds after writing it down. I went to Italy and lived in Florence. They didn’t come overnight but once I wrote them down they were on their way. And I haven’t review any of those in too long. You are so right, Bob. Thanks for the great reminder.

  2. Jamie-that is fantastic about the weight loss. Isn’t it amazing how goals work? I don’t know why more people don’t use the process. Also, I enjoyed your site – fun!
