Life is a roller coaster, one-day things can be going great and then the rest of your year can be complete chaos. We all have goals, ambitions, and dreams we have yet to accomplish. There are also, a hand full of reasons why certain things in our lives don’t work out the way we desire.
I’ve been going through this for a very long time!
Having plans or goals is an ideal way to create a vision of what we want to be, do or see in life.
While this is the best way to figure out what it is you want and the steps it takes to get there, is this enough?
I’ve always envisioned being a fashion designer to the celebs and people all over the world, building an empire, etc. But what did I do to help myself begin to take the steps in this direction?
I know I’m not the only one that has procrastinated and made up reasons as to why we haven’t started doing something. This was what I did until I forced myself to stop and begin taking these 3 actionable steps to begin doing everything I want to do:
#1: Just Do It!
Nike didn’t make this their slogan for no reason! Excuses may make you feel as if you have a logical reason why you haven’t started anything but it’s merely holding you back. That chore list you’ve been putting off, that job you want to go after but you doubt yourself. These things will remain ideas until you finally bite the bullet and JUST DO IT!
I wanted to start making YouTube videos when I was about thirteen, but I told myself I needed a professional camera, perfect lighting and the proper editing tools. What I was really doing was keeping me from something that could have excelled my career. Fast forward to 2020, I have not only begun my YouTube channel but I’m putting out consistent videos every Wednesday. I film with my phone and use an app to edit my videos; I don’t use any special equipment! When you make excuses, you block opportunities!
So, Just do it!
#2: Take A Class
My favorite thing about the internet is you don’t need to take out a loan or drop thousands of dollars on classes. So many online courses can teach you more about your desire career path. I’ve completed courses on everything from blogging to makeup that I’ve found on Groupon. I’m taking a course right now about social media marketing even after completing an internship on the same topic. You can never know too much about one topic. Taking an inexpensive online course provides you with the knowledge you may need to bring you closer to making your dream a reality.
#3: Don’t Allow Your Environment To Hold You Back
Getting caught up on what is or isn’t happening in your life is a MAJOR distraction! Not only do you have to worry about self-distractions but you also have to deal with the others distracting you. I’ve been surrounded by people who enjoy causing others to be miserable because they are. These people will try to block you from focusing on your dreams and if you allow them they will continue to do so. We have to learn to distance ourselves from these types of behaviors and take back control of your life and your future.
These are the actionable steps that I have put into place for myself and have helped me to keep myself on top of my goals/dreams.
I know life can throw curve balls, trust me I have been dealing with them all my life! At some point in time, we have to look at whats best for ourselves mentally and physically and even for our futures.
Do what it takes! Go after all the things you want TODAY!
