Achieving your dream. 5 sure steps that guarantee your success.
According to Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary, “Dream is a wish to have or be something, especially one that seems difficult to achieve”. A lot of people have been dreaming to be a great person. To dream about something great is a good thing but it seems disappointing after dreaming to be great, the person relax and cannot work towards achieving that dream.
To achieve your dreams, you must get up and start something. Although in this life, nobody is a perfect human being. You must try on your own as a human being. Without the trial, you can never work towards perfection. Achieving your dream will lead you to discover our talent. Talent is nothing but the capacity for doing continuous work in the right way.
Some dream high but will feel reluctant in working towards their dream hoping that someone great will achieve their dreams for them. A saying goes “You can never teach a man everything , you can only help him to find it within himself”.
To achieve your dream, here are five steps that will guide you.
Believe in yourself. A good beginning they say makes a good end. If you do not believe in yourself, it will be difficult to achieve your dream. All the great people in this world, they started somewhere and before they achieve their dream, they have confident within themselves. From today, stop doubting yourself. Always be positive about yourself. Know what you want. The Bible tell us that there is power in spoken word. Have confident in yourself and say, YES I CAN DO IT. This will help you to achieve your dream.
Be Focused. The purpose of life is life of purpose. Any student that wants to pass an examination must focus on his studies. To be a great achiever is all about FOCUS. When you focus, you will overcome all the distractions coming to you. Being focused means having your attention directed to what you want to do. It must be direct. You cannot say, “I want to be a Doctor but let me study Law first”. You must be focused and concentrate. One great cause of failure is lack of concentration. Having the mindset of your dream will help you to focus. When you know what you dream about to be, even if distractions should come, since you have that mindset of what you want to be, you will surely focus and conquer. Have a focus, focus on your focus and you will soon be the focus.
Beware of friends. Some who dream great could not achieve it because of the friends they keep. Some friends are DREAM KILLER. To achieve your dream, you must examine your life to know those that worth your friend. Make friends with people who have the same mindset like yours. Socrates says that “Unexamined life is not worth living”. If you do not examine your life, you will always be useless. Mind the kind of friends you keep. Make friends with the people that will encourage you and not those that will discourage you. Birds of the same feather they say, flock together. A saying goes “friends are thief of time”. And also know that one fake friend can do more harm than ten enemies. Gone are the days when a problem shared is a problem half solved, now a problem shared is a topic for gossip. Be mindful of who you keep as your friend. Your friends determines your success.
Make use of every opportunity. Always make use of every opportunity that comes your way because you do not know when next you will have that opportunity again. Do not expect opportunity always. Stop procrastinating because procrastination is a thief of time.
The last but not the least is PRAYER. Never forget your God. Remember that with God everything is possible. But mind you that Heaven help those who help themselves. You cannot be on your bed and be praying to God to help make your dream come true while you are always in your house sleeping, never expect miracle to fall from Heaven. You should have plan of how to achieve your dream and remember God in your plan. God must surely see you through.
What you need to achieve your dream is in YOU. Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success. Always be happy with yourself. Do not compare your dream with another person’s dream. Know that you are UNIQUE. You are your dream and your dream is you. My dear, GET UP, LETS GO THERE…
