"You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You've got to get out there and make it happen for yourself." -- Diana Ross
We tend to get into a comfort zone, and here we stay. Yet, so many of us wish and dream for something better. But, sadly, that is where it remains, a wish or a dream.
This is where Ms Ross's words ring very true. When we sit around we get nothing and nowhere - life does not hand out freebies.
Most us have a dream, and the only way we can reach that dream is by getting off our butt, and going to get it. The difference between a wish and a dream is discussed in detail in the easiGOAL manual.
Getting out there and making it happen need not always be a difficult task. Often it means advancing step-by-step towards our goal. Even with a tiny axe, continuous chopping will bring down the biggest tree.
The value of effective goal setting cannot be under-estimated when we consider fulfilling our dream. By having a goal, and practical techniques to pursue that goal, your chances for success are increased several fold.
Remember what Ms Ross says, "make it happen for yourself."
Make it your goal to...
Identify your dream, and then work consciously at finding ways to make it happen. Many techniques for doing just this are dealt with in the eaziGOAL manual. Above all else, never just sit and wait. However small a step, take it, and move forward.
