Yes I've been there, yes I had a lot of dreams and goals but had the silly habit to keep them in my mind and not making a move toward reaching them and if I do, I give up within a week or so,feeling too lazy to go through the whole long uncomfortable process , but now I understand that "life begins at the end of your comfort zone" and that "at the end of the road you'll remember the gain not the pain". I'm not saying that now I have everything I ever wanted but on my way to it, I found some ways and tips that may help you get started and stay stuck until the end.
So the first thing you wanna do is think about the final result and how your life will change with it, and what are the benefits of reaching that goal on you and on your environment (is it self-confidence,money or simply happiness...). Write it all down because: first, it will give you enough motivation to get started then it will remain as a reminder during the journey.
2.Talk About It:
No I'm not telling to go and tell everybody you know that you want to learn spanish or write a book or something , no you just got to pick about 2 or 3 people who you know are honnest , supportive and positive and share your idea and dream with them , beacuse for some reason when you do that it kind of challenges you to actually get started .
3.Force It :
Now I just want you to take a moment to clear the world "ready" from your mind for there's not such a thing , either you're doing it it NOW or never. As
(I don't know him neither) said:
" I don't wait for moods.You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work"
So just force it on yourself and get started...NOW, no excuses!!
4.Get Inspired :
Inspiration is a really important element in this whole "dream-achievement-process" because it shows you how other people reached that goal and it reminds you that you're not alone in this. You can get inspiration from social media , books , people around you ... just research it, hear other people stories and learn . And remember "Get inspired, do it your way then inspire"
5.Practise, Practise & Practise ... (until the end of your life)
You are not supposed to be a natural born cooker to give cooking a shot and try your best to succeed in it if you find extreme joy in trying new recipes or creating new ones , you don't have to be naturally flexible to succeed a split or some complicated yoga poses if it delights you. I believe in hard work over talent and luck, I believe that if you work really really hard and pratcise you will get where you want to be ,even if life gets in the way some times but just ... don't give up on what sets your heart on fire .... don't give up on your dreams... don't give up on your passions ....don't give up on me ( nah...JK I'm fine)
6. Bonus tip (coming soon) :p
*sigh* Well, I really hope that this bunch of messy words you just read gets you to do something ... just a tiny step towards your goals , be it your first 30 mins workout of the week OR seeking for the nearest spanish school...OR just a page of the book you are craving to write .... OR ... or just an attemption to make cupackes ... OR ... okay it's your life do whatever you want with it .... just DO, don't waste it.
Go Get A Life Sweeties.
