Today we are going to explore the idea of Using Your Genius Mind to Identify the Steps You Need to Take to Achieve Your Dreams. This topic follows the discussion of the past week, where we’ve been looking at Maximising Your Mental Potential through the process of Setting Powerful Goals.
If you’ve been taking the Action Steps that have been suggested in the posts, you will have created your Bucket List of 100 Things To Do Before You “Kick The Bucket”.
Once you have identified you Big Goals, you need to chunk it down into smaller, more manageable steps. Take the example of my family trip to Italy. That in itself could be seen as quite a big, scary
But if I chunk it down a little, I could break it down into smaller steps by saying to myself, “Well, to get to Italy, I will need to:”
- Decide what dates we would like to fly
- Decide on an airline to fly with
- Get a quote of cost associated with the trip
- Decide on which villas we want to stay at, and what places we want to visit
- Organize time off from work
- Save up the money
- Book the flights
- Book the accommodation
- Decide on what type of clothes we will need to take
- Learn some of the language.
And that’s just a few things that came to mind straight up. Now I need to decide which of these steps I need to do first, and get into action. It is SO important never to leave the site of a decision, without having taken some kind of action. You can dream all day and all night—but if you never take any action, you will never get any action! You can’t do everything at once, but you CAN do something right now. I suggest you focus your biggest effort on your BIG goal. Most winners have a dream and work on it. They have a priority. Focus on one thing at a time, your dream. The focus and direction of your front wheel will relate to the results you experience later in your back wheel. Where you steer is up to you.
So your Action Step for today: For every Big Goal that you create, expect to come up with 5 to 10 smaller steps that you can take, that will move you closer to your Big Goal. And then take action, immediately.
