Dreams vs. Goals
“A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan.”
You can dream of being many things but without action, you might never actually reach who or what you want to be FULLY. Be 100% in everything you do, write down your dreams, once you write down a dream, set some things in place to reach your final destination. A goal is your end result, your dream fuels your passion. In order to stay persistent and stay motivated you have to be passionate about not only the end result but the journey.
Don't get me wrong, you don't have to have everything figured out and planned to a specific hour because well… nobody knows everything that is going to happen and when it is going to take place. We just have to roll with the punches and keep our chin up and know that God is Great all the time and even when we don't see it, he has an ultimate end goal for your life and he always has perfect timing.
I’ve had a journal for as long as I can remember that I keep next to my bed the cover says “If you're dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough” and that is always something I've tried to keep in mind when thinking about what I honestly want to accomplish in my life. Dream big, don't let anybody tell you you cant do something because of your circumstances. I know that probably sounds very cliche and it is, but its true. My parents have always supported what I wanted to do and my plans for the future and they continue to guide me a little more every single day.
One thing I love doing is making bucket list for different times in my life, and it helps me renew my goals and what I honestly want to do, it also keeps me on my toes to try new things, as I'm kind of a creature of habit, it takes a lot for me to try new things just because I'm not sure of the outcome, but slowly and surely I will get there, I encourage you to make a bucket list and a dream board, keep your goals in front of you, do something everyday to turn your dream in to reality and set little reminders daily to keep you motivated and focused!! Most importantly remember to enjoy the journey!!
