I realize that sometimes when you find out you want to get somewhere, it almost seems impossible. I will get straight to the point on debunking this.
Its never impossible if you focus on the right things. If for instance, all you want to do in this life is go to Australia and live there for a month before coming home, I can realize that this is a challenge. And you will never get there if you do is focus on Australia. I didnt say forget about Australia, just dont focus on Australia. Put up some pictures of where you want to live and make a list of all the places you want to visit while you live there. Post these things where you seem the most so that you can be reminded of the big picture, but again, that doesnt mean you should solely focus on it.
So what should we focus on instead?
The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. This is true with any goal you have. If you really want to go live in Australia for a month and experience some amazing adventures too, there will be a lot of prep work to do. What time of the year will you go? Who will take care of things here while you are gone? How much money does it cost to be able to leave here and still have the bills paid? Where will you live when youre in Australia? And so on
The list can seem daunting and maybe even overwhelming. But it doesnt have to be if we focus on the journey of getting there. It doesnt really matter what your goal is (although Australia sounds nice as Winter approaches). Whatever it is you want to do there will be tasks to complete before you can go or do anything. Imagine each task as a set of steps. Once youve figured out how many tasks it takes to do what you need to, write down like this:
Lets say it takes 10 tasks to reach the point of being able to go or do. I will then find out how many miles (if it is distance) it is to where I want to be. For this example, I will say 10,000 miles away. Now I can line up my tasks from bottom going up to the top like a thermometer. As I complete the first task, that is 1,000 miles closer to my destination. I know this might seem 5th grade to some people, but this idea of how we think of getting to where we want to be, can be the difference between wishing and dreaming, and actually achieving and winning!
I mentioned in the title about having 10% gut. There will likely be moments when a specific amount or thing will be unknown. Prices might change for example so knowing exactly how much money will be more challenging. If that happens to you, take an extra 10%. (See how I did that? 10% in the title) Anyway, use an extra 10% just in case it does cost more. If by the time you get there, it does not cost more you have a bonus 10% to spend on other experiences!
Friends, do not let the big picture daunt you and make you feel helpless when trying to achieve something great. Take that first step, conquer your first task, and eventually, you will see yourself at the finish line. Remember, its about the journey right now. Its about the destination when you get there!
