Ever since I was a little child I’ve thought about how far my dreams can really take me. I’ve spent most of my life working toward my dreams: the dream of finding a fulfilling relationship, a career that I’m passionate about, a body that I’m proud of and spiritual abundance that can comfort me in times of need. I spend hours of my time everyday, every week, and every year taking steps toward achieving those dreams, and I can honestly say that I’ve been able to accomplish a lot of the things I’ve set out to do.
The key to achieving your dreams is to have a detailed plan that will allow you to form good habits along the way. All the successful people I’ve met in my life have a certain pattern for the way they do things, and those patterns end up translating into habits that stand the test of time. If you want to achieve your dreams, then I’d suggest making these 3 habits a part of your life.
#1: They Fight for Their Dreams All Day Everyday
If there is anything I know about people who achieve their dreams, it’s that they fight for their dreams like their life depends on it. They live life to the fullest and love what they do, but they know that if they aren’t spending an adequate amount of time everyday getting closer to their goals, then someone else out there is. They realize that they can’t spend hours everyday lounging on the couch or surfing the web—they have to act!
#2: They Take Care of Themselves Physically, Mentally and Spiritually
Following your dreams can take a toll on your body and your soul, but those who know how to achieve their dreams understand that if they don’t take care of themselves physically, mentally and spiritually, they won’t make it through. If you want to perform at your peak, you need to follow a clean diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables and healthy protein. You also need to exercise at least a few times per week. And lastly, you need to get in touch with your spiritual side—going to a religious ceremony or even practicing regular meditation can do the trick.
#3: They Will do What Others Will Not
When I say this, I’m not talking about lying, cheating or stealing to get to the top, but people that achieve their dreams are always willing to go the extra mile when others only want to rest. If you want to achieve your dreams, you have to learn how to be ferocious about chasing what you want. Sometimes you’ll have to sacrifice free time to work another hour or finish up a project, but that’s ok, because it will put you one step closer to achieving your dreams.
