The new year is already here. Do you have a dream you want to accomplish, but you keep getting in your own way? You know what to do, but you can’t seem to do it? Here’s what you need to do to accomplish your dreams.
Make the Time
The most used excuse of why someone hasn’t achieved their dreams yet is because they don’t have time to work on them. They come home from work tired, so they watch a little TV, eat dinner, scroll social, and all of a sudden, the day is gone. But there’s no such thing as “no time.”
There’s a reason why successful people wake up early in the morning: they’re making time in their day to do what they want to do. And most of the time, they’re doing something they don’t even want to do—but they do it anyway because it gets them another step closer to their dreams. Waking up and getting things done before you clock in for work can empower and help you accomplish your goals.
It’s not about who’s the most naturally talented and who’s taller, more intelligent, or better-looking. It’s about who works the hardest. Consistency always wins.
If your goal is to write a book, figure out the steps to take and be consistent in your work each day. The saying, “practice makes perfect,” doesn’t mean “practice once, and you’re a pro.” It takes consistency, sweat, and hard work to get to where you want to be.
Change Your Mindset
Everyone has a lazy mindset sometimes, but it shouldn’t get in the way of reaching your dreams. Get out of your own way—you’ve got a job to do!
Picture this: you go to sleep at night thinking, “I’m going to wake up early, exercise, eat a healthy meal, and meditate!” The alarm goes off in the morning, and suddenly the excuses start pouring through: “I’m tired. I can’t work out today because I don’t know when the gym opens. I have a hard project at work today.”
Your mind will do everything it can to stop you from doing things you don’t want to do, like getting out of bed, memorizing that monologue for the audition, or studying for a test. But if you want something, you have to change your mindset, focus, and work hard.
Have a Vision
People who don’t have a vision of what they want to accomplish drift through life because they’re not working toward anything specific.
If you’re having trouble visualizing your dream, try using the power of the amethyst gemstone. Crystals can help us come to a peaceful state, and in that relaxed state, you might find the vision you need to achieve your dreams.
As Arnold Schwarzenegger said, “All I know is that the first step is to create a vision, because when you see the vision—the beautiful vision—that creates the want power.”
Understanding what you need to do to accomplish your dreams is a massive part of your journey because you realize the changes you need to make and can take the necessary steps. Now, let’s get to work.
