- Assess your strengths
Make a sincere assessment of your skills and experiences and write them down. Get clear on your strengths; they are signposts toward the best vision for your life. Look out for your weaknesses and come up with a game plan to turn those negatives into positives.
2. Take the first step
Success is not an event, it is a process. To finish any great endeavor you must first start. This may not be the start of a new business but could simply be the start of a new idea, a new path or a new way. Take each new beginning and follow it through to the end. List the action steps you need to take to get to where you want to go, to do what you want to do. Make these goals as tangible as possible. One successful goal achieved will build your motivation to achieve the next goal in front of you, and so on.
3. Write down your goals and review regularly.
Goal setting is an ongoing process which should be reviewed from time to time. Ensure that they are checked either monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly.
4. Make a vision board
Believe it or not, visualization actually works. Your vision board should focus on how you want to feel, not just on things that you want. The more your board focuses on how you want to feel, the more it will come to life. The purpose of your vision board is to bring everything on it to life.
5. Embrace whatever comes.
As you move towards turning your dream into a reality, don’t be so rigid that you miss opportunities to create something slightly different, but even better. Despite the uncertainty, many men and women have managed to lead exceptional lives of prosperity and fulfillment. Be flexible and be patient.
