Take a chance, make your dreams and goals a priority

stockvault-pei-country-bridge---hdr133697I met an individual the other day and she stated that she was having trouble sticking to her goals and finishing what she started. She said that she has decided many times that today will be the day that she works to complete that goal. She even went on to say that she talks about it a lot with her family and friends and they also don't believe her anymore. Her goal is to start her own catering business. She loves to cook and she is great at it, but no one believes that she will ever complete it. You see, this is something that she has been talking about for over fifteen years. But every time she tries to start this catering business something else happens in her life which makes her have to put her goals on hold for a while.

I truly believe that she wants to complete this goal and it seems to be very near and dear to her heart. But no one is going to take you serious until you start to take yourself serious! If you are constantly talking about what you are going to do, or what you are working on, and there is no manifestation to back it up, then it can seem like you are just talking! Take a chance and make your dreams and your goals the priority. I understand that on your journey, sometimes there are obstacles that can get in the way. Keep your eyes on the price and never give up! Decide that you must keep moving to complete what's important to you.

If you set a goal to complete, you should be consistently working to achieve that goal. Your actions will show others that you are serious. Walking into your greatness is serious business, and it takes hard work and determination to achieve any goal that you set for yourself. We can talk all day about what we plan to do, but a plan is nothing without a road map attached to it. It's just a plan. You have to identify exactly how you are going to make this happen. As I've said before, nothing happens over night, but if you believe in yourself and trust yourself, you CAN make your dreams a reality.

And as always, stay focused, stay determined, and keep striving for greatness.
