1. Reach Dreams
Spend some time dreaming. Listen to the story your life is telling. Are you conscientiously writing it? Do you enjoy hearing the stories? What legacy will your life’s story tell? Have you imagined the details of your dreams? Which dream tastes the best? Have you picked your legacy?
2. Set Goals
A boy set a goal to become a millionaire. Certainly, this was the greatest mark of success and way to happiness. Upon reaching this goal, he found that it was not his dream. So he spent the rest of his days trying to reach that dream. Because of his patience and discipline, he accomplished great things. Nonetheless, he knew the path he traveled would have changed if he spent all of his days traveling toward his dream. Set goals that reach your dreams. Goals that are based on the outcomes you’d like to reach… your legacy. Below are some pointers for setting goals to help you reach your dreams:
- S – specific, significant, stretching
- M – measurable, meaningful, motivational
- A – agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented
- R – realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented
- T – time-based, time-bound, timely, tangible, tractable
Planning helps the dreamers travel towards their dreams. The mile markers and destinations along the journey may be the goals they have accomplished. Each day their actions decide if they will travel toward their dreams. Having a map that is reviewed helps that dreamer go the right direction. This map is the plan. Dreamers write their own stories by the actions and reactions along the journey to their dreams. May you have a wonderful year and make a plan. Celebrate when you reach your goals, and arrive at your dreams. Enjoy the journey. Write your story. Leave the legacy that you have chosen. Don’t be surprised if this legacy grows into something better along the journey.
