It takes three steps to turn a goal into reality.
The first step is easy: Dream big.
Before you can declare a milestone or goal, you must first have a wish. That’s the fun part. Most of us have ambitious dreams, and it’s important to articulate them. Don’t worry about how you’ll fulfill the dream for now.
Step two is to narrow your focus. Zero in on the part of your dream that excites you the most. This is how you convert a lofty dream into a well-defined goal.
Step three is to fully commit. You can’t pursue a goal half-heartedly. Say the goal out loud. Tell other people about it. Write it down and repeat it to yourself every night before you go to sleep. This process helps makes your goal seem more real, giving you something concrete to work towards.
