How to reach for your dreams

Today I want to show you how to reach for your dreams…

…and turn them into reality.

First, I have a couple of questions for you…

What are your goals in life? Have you ever thought about what it is that you want to achieve before you die?

Most probably you only thought about these things when you were young. You had plenty of dreams, then, about what you would do and how your life would turn out.

So, what happened? What has stopped you reaching for those dreams? Have your ideas changed or have you just settled for what you’ve got?

You see, part of becoming older is that we tend to accept what life has given us. And we don’t give a thought to what we dreamed about doing when we were young.

But what if you don’t like your life the way it is now? What if you are starting to think that your life should have turned out better than it has?

It’s time to turn to your dreams again. But, this time, make them more than just dreams – make them goals.

There’s a distinct difference between dreaming about what your life might be like and working towards a goal.

Dreams are but fantasies; as we get older we tend to consider our dream lifestyle as some sort of fantasy that can never be achieved.

You stop trying to reach for your dreams simply because you don’t believe you can reach that far

That’s simply because you haven’t made them real in your own mind. Everything remains a dream unless you make a move to turn it into reality.

So, today, I’m encouraging you to turn your dreams into goals. And the way to do this is to start thinking about what you really want out of life.

It’s too easy to say ‘I want to be rich’ or ‘I want to have an easier life’. Those dreams are too amorphous to ever become real.

Instead of saying ‘I want to be rich’ think about what riches would bring you.

What would you do if you were rich? Would you spend a lot of money on a house, or a car, or travel all the time? Or would invest it in giving your family and loved ones a better life with more opportunities?

Instead of saying ‘I want an easier life’, think about what that means.

Does it mean you want to give up your job and live the ‘laptop lifestyle’, running your online business from wherever you want to be? Or do you just want to retire early, confident in your online business bringing in the income you need to travel and visit friends and family?

It’s time to start putting these ideas down somewhere that you will see them every day. Create a vision board next to your computer or work desk so that it always acts as a reminder of the goals you are working towards. Or do what I do and put images and notes on your computer desktop so they are always in front of you.

The point of all this is to keep your goals constantly in your mind so that you actively work towards them. Dreams will stay dreams if you think that they will, somehow, magically come true.

Goals are real and can be reached as long as you take the steps to move towards them. In the next post I’ll show you how to start taking those steps.

  1. Hi Peter,

    I like the idea of making the simple adjustment from dreams to goals.

    Then can we not only think about what achieving this goal will mean to us but also now we have committed ourselves to something (as well as to ourselves) and we can break down those goals into simple action steps that we can tackle every day.

    Doing this puts real meaning and enthusiasm into our “daily to do” list as we now can think, feel, hear, touch and even smell the desired destination goal we have decided upon

    You blueprint about how to “reach for your dreams” can then become a reality – many thanks for this awesome share

    1. You’re right – a ‘to do’ list is an essential part of moving towards your goal every single day. I’ll be making more posts about that as it really is a great way to make the most of your time.
