Have you ever wondered how successful people have gotten to where they are now? I know I have! In today’s post, I’m sharing with you what someone once shared with me -how she got where she wanted to be in life. Hopefully, this post will encourage you to work hard for what you want and will inspire you to make your wildest dreams come true!
1. Have a vision
The first thing that you need to do in order to get where you want to be in life is to have a vision! When you’re driving, you have to know where you want to go before you can actually get there, right? Life is just like that! Before you can achieve something, you have to actually know what you want! Then, you have to be willing to go for it! It might not be easy to achieve your dream, but if you have a strong reason for wanting it, then that can help you through the rough patches! You can also create a vision board to remind yourself of your goal and motivate you to strive for that goal daily!
2. Set goals
Once you have a vision, it’s time to set SMART goals! Smart goals are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-based!
Specific– this will help you clearly understand exactly what you want to accomplish
Measurable– this will help you track your progress so you can see how far you’ve come and how much you have to go
Achievable– this will help ensure that you are physically, mentally, and spiritually capable of achieving what you want to accomplish!
Realistic– this will confirm that your goal is something that is actually possible. Just because you wish you could grow a foot in a year doesn’t mean it will happen!
Time-based– this will help you make sure that you accomplish your goal when you need to
3. Make a plan of what you need to do
Once you know what you want to do and have set realistic goals on how to accomplish it, it’s time to make a plan! How do you expect to get there without a plan? It won’t just happen, my friend! First, learn what you need to do in order to get where you want to be. This could mean earning a college degree, going to graduate school, completing an internship, etc. Once you’ve figured this out, write it down and stick it on your vision board too! Then, it’s time to get to work on actually achieving your dream!
I hope this post helps encourage, motivate, and inspire you to get where you want to be in life! Remember, what you accomplish in life is all up to you! You have to be willing to work hard for it! I wish you the best of luck!
