Achievement in any field requires effort and sacrifice. You need to act in a manner that will allow your goal to become reality. If you want to be an Olympic medalist, a bestselling author, or a great actor it requires hard work and dedication. Every achievement in life comes with its own price tag. Here are nine guidelines for those on the journey toward achieving their dreams:
Write down what you want to achieve: Be clear and concise on what it is that you want in life. You can’t commit to memory what you don’t remember. Put pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard, but get your dreams and goals out of your head.
Make preparations: Know where you’re going, make a plan and work your plan.
Act deliberately: Do it NOW! Taking decisive actions instill a sense of purpose and confidence.
Get others involved: No one is a self-made person. Life is teamwork. Find your team. All achievement requires the help of other people.
Expect failure: Bummer, but true. Failure is a necessary ingredient of success. There can be no success without some failure.
Keep your focus: Don’t allow yourself to be distracted. Stay focused on your written goals.
Examine your journey: What’s working, you keep, and what’s not working, you toss out. Make sure you insert some new directions. Review your goals often, this way you’ll see how far you’ve come!
Take a reward: Give yourself an occasional ‘high five’ for a job well done. Treat yourself to something special. Be refreshed and encouraged by your progress.
Be true to yourself: Never compromise your integrity and moral character. It’s not worth it! Achievement is gained when we are seen as a person who can be trusted and relied upon. Be that person!
