“Some people dream of success, others stay awake to achieve it.” – Unknown
Newton’s third law states that, “For every action, there is a reaction.” While he was talking about physics, this law can be applied to so much more. For example, if I tell my friend that her outfit is ugly she may not speak to me anymore. If I drive with my eyes closed, at the very least I will get into an accident. If I identify, plan and execute on all of the things I want to accomplish, I will achieve my goals.
Society tells us that all we have to do is DREAM BIG and we will be successful. Wrong. Dreaming does not require action and will not produce results. It’s extremely important to have dreams. Dreams are what stir in our heart to fuel the passion we need to stay motivated, but dreams alone won’t take us to the finish line. You cannot win a race that you do not run. You can’t cross the finish line if you you don’t move past the start.
So how do you turn your dreams into success?
- Identify your goals – not all ideas are worth pursuing. It’s important to take a step back and make sure that your goals are so important to you that you will want to keep working towards them even when your motivation slips.
- Develop a plan – even though you have identified your goals, you’re not done. You have to plan how you will accomplish it and when.
- Execute – WORK, WORK, WORK and WORK some more until your dreams have become a reality.
