“I achieved my childhood dream” is something we rarely hear nowadays. People now have narrowed down success to something that will lead them to a high paying job, but rarely do people include personal interest or happiness in their dreams. Such dreams will be then coined as “unrealistic” by most.
But it can’t be called a dream otherwise. No matter how impossible it may seem, all dreams are possible to achieve. The question is whether you are willing to give your all to it and to go all the way. Here are five steps that are bound to lead you to success if followed correctly,
1: Setting a goal
The first step is to clear your mind and actually visualize what you want. Instead of having to choose between millions of choices, you should narrow down your goals according to what you couldn’t possibly live without, these are your life goals.
Next step is to plan.It is better to make a plan according to our journey. Make a list of all the achievements you need along the way. Then, try to visualize how you can achieve these goals leading to a bigger success. Plan according to all the aspects of your journey, all the hurdles you could face, almost like you plan the amount of food or extra clothes you take on a trip as a backup. So in this way, even when faced with difficulties you know what you have to do to overcome them.
3: Step by step achievement
Have you ever seen a marathon? You must have noticed how checkpoints are set up along the way. Runners keep track of the time they take to get to the checkpoint and evaluate their journey so far. This very step can be taken in your journey to success. Instead of setting a big goal, break at down into smaller steps that would lead you to success. These steps will act as checkpoints for you. At the end of a week, look at what you have achieved and keep a track of your achievements.
4: Be optimistic
Life isn’t exactly a piece of cake. There are bound to be hurdles along the way. And sometimes your plan doesn’t go your way. But you should always stay optimistic and never let the pessimistic thoughts sway you from your path. Staying positive and preparing yourself for the worse to come is the best way.
Looking at the most successful people today we will see that ashes give rise to gold. Bill Gates, started his career with a company Traf-O-Data, which crumbled before his very eyes. Today he owns one of the largest corporations in the world and has a net worth of 91 billion USD leading to being called one of the wealthiest men alive.
5: Be confident
Self-confidence is key to success. Once you become confident in yourself and your dream, you try to achieve it no matter what. Such confidence will not allow others to question your dream, instead, those along with you will also believe in you. Feeling proud of what you’ve achieved is in no way boastful but instead, it is healthy. This way you are more likely to achieve all your goals no matter how large.
