Take Action Now to Accomplish Your Dreams – They Are Closer Than You Think

It is magnificent to take action now to accomplish your dreams because they are closer than you think. There are some people who wake up each morning sad, because they are not living the life of their dreams. There are other people who wake up each morning ready to take action now in order to accomplish their dreams. Of course, the people in the latter group are more likely to reach their dreams. The real secret between the two is that one group is willing to take action now, to start doing now the things that need to be done in order to do what needs doing.

When you take action now, you start moving forward, start going down the items on your to do list in order to make things happen. The act of taking action now, of taking steps toward your dreams and doing it now, is a powerful thing. It is not a complicated idea when you break it down. Our dreams are great and lofty things. Sometimes those dreams are complicated and take many steps to make come true. But, get moving, start the journey and take action now, for those dreams, they are just at the other end of your action.

It all goes back to the notion of how one eats a elephant. If you think about it, eating an elephant is an awesome task. One that it seems will be impossible to accomplish. If you imagine the whole task, all the work involved with eating an elephant, it may seem that you will never get it done. But if you break it down into pieces, look at it one bite at a time, it seems as if the task can be done. After all you can take a bite of something. A little nibble or a little taste is doable. It is like that with your dreams. Look at the things on your to do list or your SMART plan and do the thing at the top of the list. Don’t worry about the rest, for now. Just start at the top of the list and do something. When that something is done, go back to the top of the list and do something the next thing. If you continue working in this manner you will get to the end of the to do list, the end of the SMART plan and your dream will be achieved.

This is not to say it is always easy to take action now, sometimes it is darned hard. But, so what. Life is hard sometimes when you are a grown up. That doesn’t matter. What matters is that your dreams are closer than you think. They are not far away things that will never come to pass, instead, dreams are right at the end of your taking action. You can get as close to them as you desire.

In conclusion, it is magnificent to take action now to accomplish your dreams because they are closer than you think. So, the question for you this magnificent day is, what are you going to do today to get closer to your dreams?

  • Today I'll take time to write out more specific goals.

  • I love the quote in the first graphic. It's so true! Taking that first step is always the hardest.

  • Moving one step towards achieving your goal is a great start!

  • That is a good point to only focus at what's on the top of the list. When I look at the whole list it becomes overwhelming.
