This Irish proverb surely explains why many New Year’s resolutions never get fulfilled.⁣⁣

It’s not enough to write down goals and place them all over your apartment, office, in your car, everywhere. Some people go as far as having a vision board, where they place images of the future they desire. These are great tools to help you remain motivated and focused.⁣⁣

You might be scared of putting your first foot out regarding the job application, business idea, returning to school, getting a degree, or even making that marriage commitment.⁣⁣

The answer lies in 𝗗𝗢𝗜𝗡𝗚.⁣

The people who achieve great success in life are the ones who are willing to take consistent action toward realizing their dreams.⁣⁣

Taking the first step is perhaps the most difficult thing to do in achieving a dream. But it gets easier once you begin.⁣

Consider these few things to successfully take that first step:⁣

1. Believe In Your Dream.⁣
If you don’t, who will? Is it worth pursuing? Is it something you want to pour your heart into? This will become a motivator when things get difficult.⁣

2. Visualise Your Dream.⁣
Paint a picture of the end and hold fast to that image. This will energise you and keep you focused.⁣

3. Take One Step At A Time.⁣
Life is a marathon, not a sprint. So is it with achieving your goals. It can be overwhelming when you decide to eat a whole elephant at once. So take it one bite at a time and you’ll be amazed at how much you will accomplish.⁣

How bad do you desire to achieve your goals?⁣

Are you confused, scared and frightened of the first step you need to take?⁣
