Whenever you are doing work for which you are very well-suited, it’s likely that some big goals are coming to pop into your mind-grand ideas with huge payoffs that will benefit you and hopefully many others as well. If you are like most people, however, its equally likely that a little voice inside your head will immediately dismiss these goals as crazy, outrageous and, of course, unrealistic! After all, how could you possibly hope to accomplish such incredible outcomes?
You can accomplish some astounding, “unrealistic” goals in your life, and here are some ideas that will assist you in bringing your dreams into reality.
1. You wouldn’t have the dream unless you could implement it.
“You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true”
The universe does not waste its efforts by giving you the desire to accomplish something… unless you also have the potential to achieve it. Now, no one said it would be easy! Your goal may take years to attain, and there may be numerous setbacks – before you can claim victory.
2. A positive attitude is a foundation.
You can achieve something extraordinary only if you have a dynamic positive attitude and a strong belief in yourself and your ability.
3. Don’t expect others to feel and see your vision.
You may be able to picture your outcome in vivid detail. This is your personal vision – so don’t be discouraged when you find that others (even those close to you) can’t “tune into” that dream. All that counts are that you see it and feel it. Make sure that stay away from negative people who will tell you that you are being foolish and that you will fail. You don’t need the approval of these people.
4. Enthusiasm is crucial.
Bold objectives are achieved by those who are “on fire” about accomplishing them. So, are you excited about your goal? When you are speaking about that topic to others, can they sense your passion? If you are lukewarm about achieving your goal or are just in it for money, you probably won’t succeed. Also, if you are trying to achieve a goal that someone else has set for you – but your heart isn’t in – you will face disappointment.
5. Commitment gets the job done.
Sure, many people are excited at the outset. But they quickly lose interest when obstacles appear in their path. And, with any “unrealistic” goal, you can bet that the trip won’t be all fun and games. You are going to face some tough times on the way to your goal. Those who are committed have decided that they are in it for the long haul – however long that haul may take. They usually have a timetable for realizing their dream, but quitting is simply not an option. That’s the mindset that achieves the “impossible”.
6. Your everyday progress will look quite ordinary.
When you look back at the accomplishment of most “unrealistic” goals, you are going to find that they were achieved by harnessing the power of cumulative efforts. Thus, if we view a snapshot of each day along the way, no single day’s accomplishments would look extraordinary or monumental. However, by making these efforts day after day, the individual created a momentum that propelled him or her to the desired destination. Remember, you don’t climb a mountain with one giant leap.
7. There are no guarantees.
By the way, is there a chance that you could embark on a challenging goal and not reach it? Absolutely. But, when you set an ambitious objective and gave it your all, you are a winner and can hold your head high regardless of the end result.
So, do you think that you could double or triple your income – or come up with an idea that could be worth thousands, or even millions, of dollars to your company? Or is there something that you’d like to accomplish in your community, but you’ve been wondering what you, as one person, could do make a difference? Whatever your big dream might be, don’t worry that it is “unrealistic.” People are achieving “unrealistic” goals every day. As Thomas Edition Said: “If we all did the things, we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.”
