Thought for the day: Day 10

“What do I want?  What actions am I taking to change my habits in order to get it?  What’s my plan?”

Do you know the difference between a wish and a dream?  A wish is a ‘pie-in-the-sky’; want it to fall in my lap, fantasy.  A dream is something that’s been written on your heart; something you long for and aspire to.  But all too often, dreams fall back into the ‘wish’ category.  We tend to not take action and hope someday it will all happen like it should.  It never will.

A goal on the other hand is a dream with a deadline.  Decide what you want.  Determine what must be done – what actions you need to take – to get it done and then write it out.  Of course, the most difficult part of that process is taking the action and changing habits and behavior.  The good news is it doesn’t need to happen all at once.  You can take little steps day by day.  Over time you will have discovered your habits and behaviors did change.
