How smart are your dreams?

So many people, if not everybody, want to live their dream life. If you want to live a dream life, not only must you decide what you want, you must have S.M.A.R.T goals: Specific, Measurable, Action, Realistic and Time bound. You must turn your dream into measurable goals, break those goals down into specific action steps and then visualize and affirm your desired outcomes.

I have a mentor who recommends me making a commitment to do something I have passion for, in at least three different areas that will move me in the direction of my goal in life. Since then, I have devoted time to writing, reading books from various authors, spending time on the internet to read articles and listening to audio tapes about successful people and how they achieve success.

For example, if one of your goals is to be a bestselling author, then make a commitment, write at least two to three pages, spend 1 or 2 hours daily writing on the topic or subject that interest you. If you want to achieve physical fitness, make a commitment to do some sort of aerobics and stretching exercise three to four times a week for the duration of twenty to thirty minutes? If you simply go for a 30 minutes’ walk four times a week that would probably put you in the top 1% of those people who are fit. If your goal is to live with financial independence, start saving and investing a portion of your income every month without fail.

If you wish to translate your day dreams into a dream life then you must set specific, measurable goals to accomplish in a given time period and take the necessary action for meeting them.  This is SMART!  (You may contact Felix at flelixi@yahoo.com)
