Dreams are a beautiful part of life, inspiring action and guiding your path throughout your years. Identifying a clear dream enables you to make choices that will help you achieve your desires. A dream, however, is nothing without the innate drive and motivation that leads you to action. Without an external effort, your dream will remain a figment of your imagination. There are several easy steps that will help set you on the path to making your vision a reality. First, identify what you specifically want to accomplish. If you don’t mark your destination, there is no way to measure success. After you have defined your goal, the next step is creating a plan to get there. Use concrete words to define short term goals. An example would be running for 20 minutes every day if you want to increase your endurance. After creating a plan of short term action, distinguish markers to help you see your success. Creating a plan will help you see your dreams in a concrete, accomplishable way. Once you’ve started out, there is no stopping you from achieving anything you set your mind to. So dream on, and look inside to find the initiative to make your dreams a reality.
