If It’s Worth Dreaming, It’s Worth Writing Down

You have the idea so therefore you have within you the ability to make it a reality. Such is one of life’s great truths. This may not always appear to be the case, but rest assured deep down you’ve got all the ability it takes.

The problem is that far to often we don’t lay a foundation so that we have in place what it will take to make our idea a reality. First of all, we have to understand that things often don’t just happen. They are the result of following out carefully planned steps and taking daily action until we have reached our intended destination.

Say for example you wanted to take a trip. Most likely you’d chart your course wouldn’t you? You’d at least take the time to know where you were headed and write out the directions. This is the same idea behind achieving our goals, yet you’d be amazed by how many people choose to go day in and day out without having a basic plan of where they’re headed.

The main thing to keep in mind is that your goals should be committed to paper. This is the same as having a map. Each time you begin to feel as though you’re drifting away from what you want, you can refer back to your written goals. Sounds pretty simple doesn’t it? Well that my friend is because it is!

Yet as easy as this is to implement the fact still remains that most people simply lack the determination to make this an ongoing process. I won’t lie to you here it’s going to take an ongoing commitment. It takes the understanding that all things are changing. Life is about change. The better we become at adapting to life’s changes the better prepared we will be. Amidst all the changes, keeping a written plan will do wonders for keeping you heading in the direction of your dreams.
