Earlier this year I set out to make a number of goals for myself. I wrote them down, I declared them out loud, and took small steps to get there. Today I am beginning to see the fruits of my labor taking shape. It's purely remarkable how making declarations with true passion can become realized.
Some of the small steps I took was to get a mentor. I sought out a particular mentor who was skilled in areas that I had not mastered. He has kindly taken me under his wing. Secondly, I took an amazing photography class. I wasn't sure what I was getting into, but I ended up becoming totally enthralled. I not only learned some lifelong photography skills, I put them into practice right away which resulted in a new long-term relationship with a client that is taking me in a new direction. Lastly, I began writing after a 6-month hiatus. It's been great. It's helped me get back into the groove. I am rejuvenated.
I see how my friends who set goals, who declared their dreams out loud or who told just a few friends of their desires that the act of declaring set things in motion. They got hired in positions that fit like a glove, they traveled to the place they had always dreamed of going, they moved to a new city to start a begin life. And it all started out by making a declaration out loud and believing in their dreams.
What small steps are you taking to reach your dreams?
