Dreams can be scary to verbalize – especially when dreams directly challenge deeply rooted beliefs or fears about who we are and what we can attain. Knowing that, can you bravely verbalize, write, or whisper some dreams to yourself? Be gentle with the understanding that just because you acknowledge those fears, it doesn’t mean you’re not ready to take a leap towards pursuing your dreams.
Dreams can feel lofty. It can be hard to figure out how to pursue them. Once you’ve identified what your dreams are, what comes next? Setting goals. It is best to set smaller scale goals that will lead you to your long-term goal.
Try using the “SMART Goal” method.
The “S.M.A.R.T.” acronym stands for “specific,” “measurable,” “attainable,” “relevant,” and “time-bound.” Each SMART goal you create should have these five characteristics to ensure the goal can be reached and truly benefits you.
Take a moment to journal on your goals. What SMART, smaller scale goals have you found to be attainable?
