How to Get Started on Your Big Dream in Easy Steps

Everyone has a big dream. You may want to travel to Europe, quit your job and start your own business, give your home a makeover, go back to school, to become slimmer or to quit smoking. But oftentimes we lose focus on our dreams and become either too busy or too tired because of our daily grind. There are just too many things that demand our attention that prevent us from making our dreams into reality but this does not have to be. Here are some strategies on how you could start on your big dream:

  1. Prepare yourself mentally – find out what your big dream really is. Ask yourself do you really want this dream? Visualize this dream and feel the positive outcomes of your dreams. When you are able to see, smell, taste and touch your dreams you are more likely to become motivated to do anything to achieve it no matter what.
  2. Positive thinking works – come up with affirmation statements for your dream. By simply saying “Yes I can!” over and over again you will be able to improve the way you focus on your goals. Repeat your mantra over and over again to inspire and motivate you.
  3. Develop your plans – take note of even the smallest steps that you can do to be able to fulfil your goals. By writing down your plans you will be able to come up with a strategy to overcome every potential hurdle and to persevere at all cost.
  4. Getting unstuck – as you journey in fulfilling your dreams, you will sometimes feel that you are stuck in a hurdle and just do not know what to do next. When this happens, ask yourself what you want to do next and who could you ask for help. No man is an island, if you find yourself in the middle of not knowing whether to proceed or thinking of quitting then the best way is to listen to someone like an expert to help you move on or to make decisions.
  5. Create a schedule – make a schedule of what you need to accomplish in a day; include your daily routines and finally take time to list activities that you would like to do to accomplish steps to fulfil your goals. A schedule will help you focus on your chores, work and family first and then find suitable amount of time to work on your dreams.
  6. Let others in to your dreams – share your dreams no matter how small, how silly and how impossible it may be. By letting other people in you will be able to set expectations on how you will move forward in fulfilling your dreams. By telling your partner or spouse that you would like to go back to school, you will be able to justify that you two will have less time together in the next few months.
  7. Find a mentor – look for a coach, a mentor or a guru to help you with your dreams.
  8. Keep a record of your journey and your success – this is a journal of your plans, your day to day struggles to meet your dreams and this will also serve as the evidence of your success.
  9. Take the first step to your dreams – once your plans are ready then do not hesitate in taking the first step. When you have taken the initial step, plan for tomorrow’s next step, and so on!
  10. Adjust your plans – there is always room to improve your plans to meet your needs, goals and any kind of circumstances.
