Start working toward your goals every single day. Remember, the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Whatever it is you dream about, start taking small, logical steps every day to make it happen. Get out there and DO something! The harder you work the luckier you will become. While many of s decide at some point during the course of our lives that we want to answer our calling, only an astute few of us actually work on it. By "working on it" I mean consistently devoting oneself to the end result.
This seems like such a simple concept, and yet... sometimes our dreams and goals seem too enormous to even get started, much less achieve. Where do we start? What should our first step be? What if we're wrong and have to start over again?
Each person, of course, has a different method of doing things. Some people need to write out every aspect of their dreams, each potential step, each possible obstacle. They need to feel in control of every facet and edge. Others just need to feel that their dream is there, amorphous and unstructured, letting things happen as they will.
There are small steps I've been taking lately to remind myself of happiness. Little things that I do daily to feel more at peace with my choices. I'll keep doing them and add more in for the bigger goals in my life, too.
