1. STOP SEEKING THE APPROVAL OF OTHERS.
You don't need anyone's permission to fulfill your dream. Trust yourself and give yourself permission to succeed. Having support from people whose opinion has value is an amazing thing but it should not be the green light for whether you begin acting on fulfilling your goals or not.
If you really desire to turn your idea into reality, constantly shopping it around and seeking the approval of others will surely waste your time and kill your dream. What will happen to your dream if you don't get the approval of those whose permission you so desperately need? Nothing!
2. DON'T WAIT FOR PERFECTION.
Waiting for a time when everything is perfect and in place will cause you to lose your motivation and abandon your goal. Conditions may never be as perfect as you desire. All your ducks may never be in a row. You may never have all the money, time, or knowledge you desire to begin working on your goals.
You must take risks, learn and improve as you go along and then watch as everything begins to fall in place. If you think you have to wait for the perfect time to begin working on your goals you will be waiting a long time!
3. CREATE TIME FOR YOUR GOAL.
Many people have dreams, ideas or goals, which remain unfulfilled because they are too busy doing everything else but work on the goal! If you have a goal to accomplish, you must be ready to invest your time, and resources to ensure that it succeeds.
Making excuses about not having enough time to work on goals that are important to you is a form of procrastination, which will kill your dream before it has a chance to be born. There is always time to work on what we love and deem important. Commit to create the time and see your dreams begin to unfold!
4. DECIDE TO GO ALL IN!
The process of accomplishing your goal, like most things in life begins with a decision. You decide what you want to achieve and then you plan how you will get it done.
If accomplishing your goal is important to you, your inability to make crucial decisions about what you should do, how you should do it and when you should do it, will waste your time and kill your dream. Make up your mind and go all in. When your mind is made up nothing can stop you from making actively moving toward your goals.
5. BE BOLD AND TAKE THE INITIATIVE.
Be bold! You are the one in charge of turning your dreams to reality. You need to be proactive and actively involved in the process of working on your goals to ensure you achieve them.
Just because you have shared your dreams with others does not mean that you are no longer responsible for turning them to reality. Don't sit around waiting for others to make suggestions and guide your dreams and turn them into reality for you. Don't leave your dream entirely in the hands of others. Nobody cares about your dream like you do. Believe that!
6. INVEST IN YOUR DREAM.
No dream is self-funding. Don't be deceived into thinking that people will invest or finance your dream just because it is amazing. Don’t get me wrong, there are times that people may invest in it. But if they don’t, you will have to invest your time, energy and finances towards things that will strengthen and empower you to fulfil your dream.
You may have to invest in gaining the knowledge or expertise that will help you achieve your goals. It would be a good idea to start a dream fund to help finance your goal.
7. DO ONE THING AT A TIME.
Commit yourself only to projects and activities which are connected to your main goal. Whatever you do should directly or indirectly add up to helping you move toward your main goal. Failure to do this will confuse, overwhelm, sidetrack, distract and drain your energy.
To get started on achieving your goals, you need to plan for it and make it a priority. If you keep crowding and cluttering your life with what does not matter, you many never, ever accomplish what does matter…your goals.
Remember that you can't do all things, but you can do one thing.
