How to Get Started Achieving Your Dreams

A lot of us are dreamers.

We have big ideas, we want to make an impact on the world, and we know that we’re capable of achieving greatness.

One of the biggest setbacks to dreams becoming realities is that the “getting started” part is overwhelming.

That’s understandable, but it’s not going to get you where you want to go.

You’ve got to understand how to start before you can understand how to achieve.

When I started working on my dreams, I had no clue how to get to my end goal.

But I took action anyway.

My process can be summed up in two steps.

First, research how to achieve your dream. Learn from the best. Then take the leap.

Second, be committed to doing whatever it takes. Play to your strengths.

Set your sights on the goals that will get you to your final dream.

Stay true to your intentions.

Hold yourself accountable by telling others.

Be dedicated and committed to taking action. If you do, you’ll experience an amazing journey.

I share my thoughts on this in Episode 135 on The School of Greatness (check out the video below as well!).
