I think a lot of people set amazing goals. Huge goals. And they have massive dreams.
However, I also think a lot of people then get overwhelmed by those huge goals and massive dreams.
I mean...how do you reach those goals? How do you make those dreams come true? Where do you start? What's the most important thing?
So. Many. Questions.
It can be very overwhelming and far too often, people get so discouraged and quit even before they start.
There are so many things that can stand in the way...lack of funding. Lack of ideas. Lack of motivation. Lack of support. Lack of effort. Lack of materials. Lack of mindset. Oh...and you know...excuses.
But there are ways you can get past those questions, excuses, and "lack ofs."
First and foremost, don't let your huge goals and dreams scare you. Don't look at the big picture and wonder how the heck you're going to get there. Break it down into smaller goals, smaller steps. For instance, you have a goal that you want to accomplish in a year. That's 12 months during which you can work towards that goal. Break it down into monthly goals. And even more so from there, break it into weekly or daily goals.
To put it into easier terms, take it in smaller chunks, which are easier and quicker to achieve, than staring so long at the big goal that nothing happens.
And yes, while I may not have the answers to getting money or materials for achieving your goal, there is something you can do to make it happen sooner rather than later.
Do what is NECESSARY now.
That may mean you start purchasing items in piece meal (if your goal is building a business, for instance). Or it may mean getting a part time job (if your goal is more money to pay off debt or for a vacation or honeymoon or whatever the case may be).
Let me repeat that. Do what is NECESSARY now. It may mean you have to make some sacrifices, but they are most likely temporary (and 100% necessary).
As you start achieving those little goals and you are earning more money or buying more materials, then you realize you can start doing what is possible! How amazing is that?!
You can start looking at what needs to be done to start your business. You can start paying off your debt with the extra money you're earning. Or you can start researching vacation ideas and how much it's going to cost (if you haven't already).
As you're achieving those small goals and checking off your achievements, you are moving even closer to your huge goals and dreams! And I can guarantee you are feeling more confident and believing in yourself more and more! Isn't it such an awesome feeling?!
Before you know it, you are doing the impossible! What people, and maybe even you, said wouldn't ever happen!
It takes baby steps. Perseverance. Pushing through hard times. But if you start by doing what's necessary, then move to doing what's possible, you'll soon be knocking the impossible tasks out of the park!
I know I've been struggling with this lately. I have huge goals but I have been floundering with how to achieve them. So...yep... I am taking a step back, I'm going to write out my smaller goals that will help me achieve my huge goals, and then I'm going to chip away at them.
We all need help every now and again with resetting. We get lost along the way. Other priorities come up. Major life events happen. But being able to restart, reset...that's what is important.
I hope you all have a beautiful day, a beautiful week! Here's to setting some huge goals, and then setting some smaller goals to help achieve those huge goals! What are YOUR goals? I'd love to hear about them in the comments!
With love and wellness,
