I discovered for myself how easy it was to have big goals and dreams that I never act on. Somehow, the motivation wasn’t there or I failed to outline the steps I needed to take to make it happen. I recently had a conversation with one of my coaching clients who was feeling aimless and without direction, yet she could articulate her dream of what she wanted in her future. And in conversation with others about this dilemma, I found them confessing the same inertia. I am beginning to find what it is that will motivate me to move toward my goals. I need to be really clear about my priorities…what is most important… Visualize my desired outcome, Divide the “project” into bite size pieces, Identify what are the beginning steps I need to take, and Ask for support.
I doubt if my solution works for everyone. What has worked for you? What do you find helps you get motivated and take the steps down the road toward your big dreams?
