This quote from Tony Robbins relays an integral part of the GoalWorks process and what it takes to turn a dream into reality. We all have dreams and things that we would ‘one day’ love to do. The trouble is that a lot of us never move past this point, believing that their dream will always remain just that… a dream. It is not until we mentally go through a process to convert the dream into something real that we will make any progress on it.
The quote above alludes to the mind shift that you have when you start to turn a dream into reality. When all you do is talk about the things you would love to do one day, it is a dream. You think about it from time to time, but you can’t really see it coming true in the foreseeable future.. it might happen ‘one day’. When we start to envision the dream, that is start to picture it in your mind more clearly and start to get a sense of how you would feel if it was reality, you get excited about it. However, just being excited about it isn’t enough… the dream will remain a dream until you start doings something towards it. When you start to plan it and you come up with ways to make it happen, it really begins to take shape and it becomes possible. When you actually schedule it, book it in, lock it down it becomes REAL!
For example, you may have dream to travel around the world. You talk about it a bit as something you want to do one day. At this stage it is still a dream. You envision the places you would like to go to and the things you would like to do.. this gets excited about it to a point where you start to plan it more detail. You might do some internet research and come up with a plan for the trip, the accommodation, the savings plan, when you might go, the travel plan, the length of time you might stay in certain places. It is really taking shape and is all of a sudden it is possible. You then book your holidays, you book the flights and the accommodation and it is real!
But.. you haven’t achieved your dream until you take one more step. You must take action to complete the process. Obviously, you must get on the flight and do the trip to complete the dream. Unless you complete the last step, its all for nix.
At GoalWorks, we help you take your dreams to reality by following the process shown in the diagram above. We start with the Dream. We crystallise it by turning it into something definable ie, stating specifically what you want to achieve by a certain time. We come up with a plan by identifying a number of ways of achieving the goal. We break these down into tasks – the little steps that you have to do to complete the goal, and finally you take the action to complete the tasks. Upon completion of the task, we revisit the plan and continue to action the tasks until the goal is complete! Simple right! Yes it is.. but we also add a whole lot more value to this process.
