Here is the crazy truth. More often then not you are the only thing standing in the way of achieving your goals.
Sound crazy? Think about it: How often do you tell yourself that you don’t have enough time/money/energy? How often do you say you’re not ready yet? The weather needs to be warmer/colder. Conditions need to be perfect, the timing has to be right. You have to *fill-the-blank* before you can do it.
Each of these things you tell yourself are not obstacles, they are all excuses. They are the safety blanket preventing you from leaving your comfort zone. Each of these things you tell yourself are preventing you from putting in the hard work and really getting what you want.
Want to know why? Fear. Fear of change, fear of failure, feeling uncomfortable and challenged. Its the fear of what might possibly go wrong and how you’d feel when that happens.
But most of us don’t even realise that the fear that we feel is in our imagination, its a story we are telling ourselves. I’m not saying that there are no risks when you tackle a big goal, I’m saying you are assuming the worst case scenario when there is nothing to say anything bad would happen.
In this monthly series I’m going to share with you some easy steps that you can take to make your dreams a reality.
This month is all about daydreaming. I want you to spend some time really thinking about what you want. It could be something big or small, something you have always thought about in the back of your mind and wanted to get to it ‘someday’. Or it can be something you have thought of recently and can’t get it out of your mind. I want you to think about this thing every day, whenever you have time. It could be saving for a new car or a fancy camera. It could be learning a new skill, changing a bad habit, or taking the trip of a life time.
Write the idea down and puzzle on it. I want you to come up with the one thing you want to make happen and next month I’ll take you to the next step of achieving this goal.
Get ready, ‘someday’ is closer then you think!
