From Dreaming to Doing: How I Stopped Wishing and Started Achieving

November 20, 2023

Do you ever feel like there’s a goal you keep setting, pouring your heart and soul into it, only to find yourself falling short of accomplishing it time and time again?

For a long time, I wanted someone to rescue me. Like Charlie in The Chocolate Factory, I wished someone would save my family and me from the terrible circumstances that life had given us. I wanted nothing more than to win the golden ticket and get swept away in a floating elevator. However, this wishful thinking did nothing except make me feel like a powerless victim.

After years of feeling like a victim, I decided to take responsibility for my future. I set goals and made some progress. Unfortunately, I lacked confidence due to years of self-victimization, and I was too afraid to step out of my comfort zone. As a result, I eventually gave up on most of my goals and started falling back into the victim role.

I had to make some changes! First, I committed to escaping my comfort zone by embracing my fears.

Then, I developed courage by taking on progressively more demanding challenges that stretched me beyond what I knew I was capable of doing.

I prioritized learning about things that excited me and gained wisdom by applying what I learned directly. I attained power over my life by taking personal responsibility and refusing to label myself a victim.

Now, I teach people how to break out of their comfort zone, improve their confidence, and accomplish personal and business goals. The thing that helped encourage me to improve and stay consistent when things got hard was my personal development community. That’s why I formed Team 212, a community dedicated to personal growth and overcoming obstacles. I invite you to join the Team 212 community and share with us in the comments below the goal that you keep setting but have been falling short of accomplishing.

Together, we can support each other, offer guidance, and motivate one another to overcome challenges and achieve those goals that have eluded us. Let’s start this journey toward success and personal transformation together.

Actionable Takeaway:

  1. Identify Your Goal and Reason: Start by clearly defining one goal you really want to achieve. Write it down and also jot down why it’s important to you. This step helps to make your goal feel more real and gives you a clear direction.
  2. Take a Small Step: Think of one small action you can take right now that moves you closer to your goal. It doesn’t have to be big; even a small step is progress. This could be doing a bit of research, talking to someone who can guide you, or even just planning your next steps.
  3. Join and Share in a Community: Become a part of a community like Team 212. Here, you can share your goals and struggles. Being part of a group gives you access to support, advice, and motivation from others who are on similar journeys. When you talk about your goals and hear others’ stories, it can really boost your determination and provide new perspectives.

By following these steps, you’re not just dreaming about success; you’re actively working towards it. This approach is beneficial because it breaks down the overwhelming task of achieving a big goal into manageable steps. It also provides you with support and motivation from a community, which can be a huge help when you’re facing challenges. Remember, every big achievement starts with the decision to try. Let’s take these steps together and turn our goals into reality!
