A plan of action is a must. A dream with no plan will remain a dream.
Many of us have dreams. Dreams in which we wish would become a reality. However many of use are either not sure about how to go about setting up steps to take to move towards our dreams or many of use are lazy about taking the time to put in the effort.
Today I wanted to share with you guys why you need a plan of action when it comes to making any dream a reality.
Having a plan gives you a focus.
A lot of times we say we want something to happen, but we don’t figure out what we will focus on first. You can do this by breaking down your dream into goals that are both long term goals and short term goals. I know for me I like to break my long term goals into monthly or even weekly short term goals which helps me to reach certain aspirations as I journey towards making the things I want a reality. By setting a focus for our dream, it helps with helping us focus our thought process towards a goal that we will actively work on completing when it comes to making our dreams a reality.
A plan helps you to be prepared and to think things through.
When you have something that you want to accomplish, a lot of people think.. “Oh I am going to make this happen..” but a lot of times people don’t breakdown what it is that they need to do to reach their goals. This is why it is important to do the research in relation to whatever it if that you want to make a reality. This is also why it is important to thoroughly think things through and to even plan ahead for potential inconveiniences. I keep in mind that you can not plan for every entire mishap that can occur, but you can try to set yourself up in a way where if something doesn’t work out the way you thought it would the first time, you have a back up plan to keep things on track.
A lot of people I know have dreams, but not too many of them are doing the research and creating a plan towards making their dreams a reality.
A plan gives you a purpose.
When you setup a plan, you have something that you need to be working on. You have something that you can provide attention to that will motivate you to do what it is that you should be doing… which leads me to my fourth point…
A plan provides you with motivation.
I feel like having a plan gives you encouragement towards things that you need to do. IT’s like I see everything that I need to do written down before me and this will help me within keeping me grounded within the ideas. I honestly feel like it would even be good to write down why you want a dream to happen and what the benefits will be towards making a dream a reality or you could even think of the benefits of all of the hard work you put into making your goals a reality. For example, when you work hard towards something.. you do learn a certain type of patience and you’ll most likely value the journey which will make you value your accomplishments even more.
You know how a lot of people say,
“I wish I could just skip to the part where I have this and that..?”
The journey helps you with appreciating and really valuing what it is that you want. If you didn’t have to go through the journey of something, you would probably take it for granted. So live in the moment when it comes to obtaining whatever it is that you want in life…. and truly reflect on your experiences. Plan for the future that you want to become a reality.
Do your research and set a plan of action because a dream is just a dream without a plan.
