ASPIRE– direct your ambitions towards your achievements.
I hope you are still taking those steps to towards your dreams for 2018? Remember, take one step at a time.
Whatever you do, do not QUIT.
Keep WORKING towards your dream.
If you give up on your dream, you will not accomplish anything. You will not see it come to pass. Do not become invalid, obsolete or become out of date. Make a change before it’s too late.
If things get difficult, as they sometimes will, have a support network around you. This is a key element in life, it is a life saver.
Your dreams should BENEFIT and INSPIRE others. You want to make a positive IMPACT and make lasting changes.
I have set my goals for 2018. One of them was to write a book. So guess what? I DID. The book is now complete. Yippee!
I believe in sharing good practice. So let me explain to you how I did it.
These are the steps…
1. I wrote down when I wanted the book to be completed by.
That gave me something to work towards. This kept me focused. There are so many distractions, but I was determined to complete the task I gave myself.
2. I was committed to writing a page a day- minimum. However, as the days and weeks went on, I found myself writing more pages per day. I was getting myself into a rhyme and a routine. I haven’t stopped writing since 1st Jan 2018.
3. I asked certain people to support me in my new venture. I now have a fantastic support network around me. They are there to encourage, advice and support you me and vice versa.
Remember, your dreams must BENEFIT and INSPIRE others.
Helping others along their journey is important too. It is NOT just about you and want you can gain and achieve. It is about surrounding yourself with like-minded people so you can share ideas, opinions and interest. Please note that I did NOT say, people that are the same as you. God knows one of me in this world is enough.
4. Celebrate each milestone, because each milestone you reach, you are making progress. Also you are one step closer towards your dream.
So when I finished a chapter I threw myself a mini party. I would indulge and have a fruit salad and a glass of ice cold water (it’s the small things in life). Then I would go out window shopping. I knew if I came home with ANOTHER dress, my husband would make a comment. Tee, how many dresses do you need? With a smile on his face.
I am pleased to say that my book- OPEN DOORS is now complete.
My book is about my life, my journey. How I overcame adversity, challenges and rejection. I went on a journey of healing, and through the process I found my true worth.
Please watch this space for the announcement of when it will be available to purchase.
Thank you for stopping by.
