No matter your beliefs or stance on anything you’re not going to magically start living the life you have always dreamed of unless you take action and start working towards your next goal.
Yes you aren’t going to be the next big thing over night, but who cares everybody has to start somewhere right. No matter the task at hand you should approach all your goals with a “one step at a time” mindset.
You may think that your dreams are too big or far-fetched, but if you broke it down to achievable and realistic baby steps that you could start taking whenever you see fit.
Yes your dream may have to be your side hustle to your main job until you can fully supplement your income and pay all your bills with your side hustle but as I was saying it is doable. You have to start small before you can go big remember that.
You might have to work a job that you hate that pays the bills for a while I’m sorry this one’s just reality. No matter the goal if you take small steps toward it each day you will get closer even if it is just one step at a lime.
It doesn’t matter what your goals are if you want to achieve greatness in life you are going to have to learn how to hustle in each and every way. No more of this half your effort stuff you need to start putting your full effort into all the things you do and really set the life you want to live into motion.
No part of getting to the top is going to be easy whether it’s a personal goal, health goal, or a career goal believe me I’ve been recovering from paralysis for roughly 45 months and likely have at least a few years before I reach a full recovery.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a dreamer. When someone asks me if I have dreams I respond with, “What is life without dreams.” That being said If I am not working towards achieving a goal or dream I am kind of like the living dead with no motivation or drive to do anything, similar to just floating through life adrift. No lies, I am one of those workaholics that struggles to actually take a full day off and focus on self-care.
I am at one of those weird stages in life that for some reason meeting my goals and dreams is of higher importance than taking proper care of myself. This is an approach that does not work for everyone, but for right now it suits me just fine.
Being as introverted as I am I guess it is sort of inevitable that I have always been a dreamer. There are only so many hours a week that I attempt to be social… usually only three or four, which in turn leaves a lot of hours to think about the future and all the things I could do. As much as I like to think I know what is going on and that I have it all figured out I really just take things one day at a time. Please do not ever let someone talk you down for having dreams or being a dreamer. You just do what you need to do to make it through each day.
This year I seem to have found a perfect daily routine for me that keeps me balanced in all aspects of life when I’m not trying to meet my personal deadlines. From meditation to writing to maintaining a healthy diet I feel like I’ve finally figured out the balance that keeps me balanced.
I try my best to start off the day with at least forty-five minutes of meditation. I will am it this can lat a couple hours as the longer I meditate the better I feel both physically and mentally. Honestly when I start my day with meditation there’s no need to drink coffee I just do it out of habit.
This is followed by food and hygiene upkeep then I head onto my day. It doesn’t matter if I’m writing at home or going on a writing outing most days I’ll write something. Sometimes I end up taking a day to meet up with friends old or new. I love my friends, but honestly I would rather spend a day writing and being productive opposed to going shopping or hanging out at a mall. I don’t mind grabbing coffee from time to time at all though.
Then I set out to make or consume some of a vegetarian dish I made. My whole life I’ve always been a bit of a foodie so I always look forward to making and experimenting with new foods. After dinner I either go back to writing or grab a book and relax for a bit. To end the day I also do a meditation right before bed to try and increase my chances of sleeping at night.
Recently after taking some time to analyze my dat to day routine I realized that I am living my writing dreams. I get to live freely and do what I want when I want to. I don’t think it gets much better than this.
