How To Make Your Dreams Come True

I think I've always been a dreamer , I've always had my head too far in the clouds. People will tell you that this isn't a world for dreamers and that dreaming can only get you so far. But most of the great things we see today were started by dreamers. So today I'm going to show you some practical steps to take towards achieving your dream.

1. Write Down What You Want - Now you don't have to create a dream journal or anything cringey like that. Just get a plain piece of paper and write down what you want. You should write what you want in general first then go into more detail. This will help to make sure that you stay on task and help to focus your mind.

2. Put In The Time- If dreams were easy to achieve then they wouldn't be dreams. So if you really want to make it come true then you have to put time and effort into it. Why not set some time apart every week dedicated to your dream. It may seem like a lot of effort at first but over time you'll get used to it. Plus wouldn't you rather accomplish your dreams than have watched that episode of that TV show. I know what I would pick what about you?

3. Get Thick Skin- People will often try to put you down for many reasons. Some have nothing better to do, some are jealous and some are just plain mean. No matter what type of person is putting you down don't let them. All the most successful people were told no more than once, were ridiculed for having dream. But they persevered and now look at what they have. Are you really going to let a stupid comment stop you from achieving your destiny.

4. Love It - If your dream is not something that you truly love then you won't stick at it. Trying to achieve it for any reason other than a genuine one won't work because when it gets tough you'll quit. Also if you don't believe in what you're doing then no one else will. To be honest if you don't love and really want it then all of this is a waste of time.  

5. Research- Whatever your dream is whether it's music, art, sport, singing etc you need to research it. How are you going to achieve it if you know nothing about it. You should never expect someone to hand it to you on a plate because they won't. So if you want to be an artist then attend art schools, go to galleries and research how to get started. This is the same for other dreams as well. You can find some really good practical tips on how to get closer to your specific dream. So put down the phone, get off Youtube for a few hours and find out more about your dream. About other people who are successful at it and how they got to where they are.

I hope that enjoyed my quick overview of how to achieve your dreams. Hopefully this will inspire you to give your dreams a try at least. You never know what could be around the corner so never give up, never give in and stay amazing x.
