It’s one thing to dream, and it’s quite another thing to turn dreams into reality.
So how do you get from dreaming to manifesting?
Simply put, the more you focus on your dreams and goals, the more likely you will realize them.
Take a moment to remember successes you’ve had in the past. There is a saying, “Success leaves clues.” It is a simple way of saying, when in doubt, as to your ability to succeed at something you want to accomplish, just think back on something you’ve already succeeded at doing. Thus, success leaves clues. It’s like leaving success tracks. Think about how you accomplished the first goal. What steps did you take. I bet if you recounted your steps, you could use that same (or a similar) strategy for succeeding at a goal you have on your mind today.
The next step in going from dreaming to manifesting is to begin setting goals. A goal is a specific plan, a blueprint, for making your dream come true. Having specific goals gives you a sense of direction by letting you know where you’re going and how you’ll get there. This is how the seemingly unattainable becomes attainable.
When I decided to become a lawyer, I first created a plan, then I divided the big plan into small manageable pieces. Then, I broke those tiny pieces into even smaller pieces. Each piece became a doable part of the whole. Had I focused on tackling the big plan all at once, it’s unlikely I would have succeeded, because the task would have been too big, too overwhelming, and seemingly unreachable. BIG would have given me an excuse to AVOID. So I created small, reasonable goals – mini goals – within my big goal. It worked! Taking small steps was the answer. I baby stepped my way to success, and continue to do so.
So the next time you think your dream is too big and can’t be accomplished, break your goals it into small, manageable pieces that enable you to see and celebrate your progress – one step at a time!
