As it's the beginning of a new year, let's start well and take action on getting better. You can, you are able, don't give up. Feel that happiness bubbling in your stomach, dare to live well. And so you need to remember that
You are never too old to set another Goal
or dream another Dream
It's never too late to be what you might have been
- George Eliot
So, let's do it, let's dare to fight for that dream. Have that goal. Plan it.
1 - Write it
Don't worry about the size of the dream, dare to dream big, never mind if it's too big. Once I read something like that if you aim for the stars and you will not be able to reach them, even so maybe you will reach the moon. So, don't worry, try and if you don't reach so far you will be able to reach a good point, so never mind.
For instance, if you dream to run in the London marathon but if you find no way to do it, if you train for it at least you will be able to join a smaller marathon in your town or surroundings and, next year maybe you will join the London one.
This is just an idea, not that I want to run a marathon, I'm not very much sports inclined.
So, let's think of a different dream, more suitable to me.
For instance, you want to have all your house shipshape by the end of the year. Try it but if you can't reach that level, at least you will have some rooms that are a candy to the eye, tidy, clean and enriched with some pretty things. Well, it's not the whole house as you would like but it will be so good to have all those rooms done, or at least that ONE room. Step by step you will get there, year by year, you just have to not give up.
2 - Now write your dream as goals, one by one, never mind if you think it's too much, write them.
3 - So you wrote on the top of a page the goal you want to achieve. Next you will write the several steps you need to take to reach that goal.
Let's say, you want to begin by prettying your bedroom. You write:
1 - Clear the clutter on the floor
2 - take the clothes to wash
3 - hang the ones that are clean
4 - dust the bedside tables
5 - give the closet an improvement
And so on.
4 - And now you will post a date. You will think on when you would like to have it done, let's say by the end of this year. Ok, it's possible, maybe.
5 - And after that you will have a space where you will write how things are getting done - and date it each time you write an improvement, or just a note about how things are going.
Let's say, by the end of this month you will write what you have done to reach your goal. Don't be discouraged, step by step things will improve, if it's not as much as you would like, never mind, just keep going, step by step.
You don't need to have just one dream, have several.
I have a notebook, an exercise book, or the name you want to call it, written Dream Book or Notebook of Dreams. In there I write my dreams as goals and I do as I said before.
So now take heart and begin, take action.
