How to Turn Your Life Dreams Into Reachable Goals

Contributed Article

There is an ancient Chinese saying that says that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. In order to be able to turn your dreams into reality you must first turn them from dreams into achievable goals…

Starting the dream list:

Let’s start your personal goal-setting process now by listing a broad range of things you’d like to accomplish, experience, or own. Make sure you set no limits on their price or what you presently think your chances of ever achieving these goals are. This is a process I have used to accomplish writing my own online marketing book and starting my own golf resort management company so be sure to be one hundred percent honest with yourself.

On a sheet of paper right now, begin to write until you have 100 things written down in front of you. Call it a Wish list, a Dream list, a Wants list, a What I Need List. It doesn’t matter what you call it. Just pick up a pen and start to write.

(Or you can copy and paste this article into your text editor like notepad and then fill in your answers.)

How much money would you like to earn per year?

What amount would provide for your family, with everything you need, plus ample left over for your life savings?

When will you retire?

To be safe, do not forget to add at least 4% inflation per year! (Of course, I do not think any of that money for retirement ever goes to clothing.)

What type of physical shape would you like to be in?

What is your ideal weight?

How many more miles would you like to be able to jog, cycle, swim or run with relative ease?

What negative habits [like tobacco chew] would you like to eradicate?

What would you like your immediate family to experience in the next 5 years?

A trip to the museums of Washington DC, London or Paris?

Perhaps you would like to be able to send your children to a private school or a special sports camp in the summer?

A cruise to the eastern Caribbean?

Maybe you want to take your family to Disney World in Florida. (Just be careful not to go on It’s A Small World, you won’t be able to get that song out of your head for days!)

Turning dreams into goals.

Start your goal setting process by creating a list of your dreams. Force yourself to write down one hundred things before you go back and hone your list.

List all of the places you want to visit, life experiences you would like to have and toys you would like to own and enjoy. List things you would like to accomplish in life, skills you would like to acquire and the amount of income you would like to make.

Detail the type of house you would like to own, the business or career you would like to create and the lifestyle you would like your family to enjoy.

From this glorious list you just made, pick the 10 most exciting things and add deadline dates for them. Next, go back and set intermediary or halfway goals for each. Finally, the last thing you must do is list short-term goals that will contribute to the achievement of the transitional goals and ultimately the long-term goals.

There is no limit to the number of goals that you set, just make sure you list only those that you are truly committed to attaining.
