“It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.
Have you ever heard someone talk about all their great ideas? There are hopes, dreams, big “what if’s” or “someday’s” and it drives me absolutely crazy.
Sure, you can think about all of your desires. In fact you should. You need to have a target. There has to be something you are trying to achieve. But you can’t let this transform into a dream or castle building. I guess some might say your “head is in the clouds.”
Most things are possible IF you have a plan.
Did you notice I said, “most”. I’m not trying to trash your dreams, but you really need to have a realistic outcome. For example, I’d love to win an Olympic Gold Medal. I’d even settle for making an Olympic team – I mean, how cool would that be? This is truly a dream for me without any realistic path. I have no sport options… gymnastics, figure skating, basketball… haha… I’m past the point of Olympic athlete! This is what I mean by realistic goal.
If you have a realistic goal you can find a path. So many things that get in your way can be overcome. Wait… did you catch that, “things in your way” – you first need to recognize your obstacles. I think obstacles are the number one thing that prevent people from even trying.
Often we see the obstacle but we do not tackle it as something that can be overcome. It’s true. This is when, if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the “only if’s” – Only if I had more free time, only if I had money, only if…
Recognize this stumbling block!
Then… guess what… once you’ve gotten past your “only if” you’ll be home free to implement a plan such as a SMART goal achievement, and you’ll be on your way.
Get out of idea phase and move into making ideas happen phase!
