5 Step Guide to Achieving What You Want

Having too many balls in the air and no success? This article is for you.

There are endless possibilities at your fingertips. At a “click of a button you can get a cheap airline flight, food delivery or a counselling advice. Seeing beautiful sceneries and expensive food on social media, we, as observers, tend to believe that all things are attained effortlessly.

Meanwhile, you continue on being persistent, but as a drop of water that falls on the stone, you just don’t make the hole. You have millions of ideas that you could make a reality, but here is the truth: everything in your head is confusing, you don’t feel prepared, and you have no budget. At the end of the day, you end up thinking, how all those people just keep “clicking” and succeeding? Why not me?

  1. LIMIT YOUR MULTIVERSE

It’s beautiful to have ideas about seven different projects, but don’t pretend you can fully speak to your potential and be committed to everything at the same time. Choosing a goal at this moment doesn’t mean that in a long run you are giving up your other dreams or desires; it would simply mean you are mature enough to prioritize.

  1. DEFINE A PURPOSE

NOBODY does and undoes just because; there’s always a reason behind the action. You exercise because you want a stunning body, you buy drinks for someone you are interested in to see how far it can take both of you, you take your underwear off with the foot and throw it in the air to avoid bending.

The reasons why you work hard must be clearly defined; otherwise, you won’t finish what you started.

  1. DO NOT BE MEDIOCRE

Suppose your goal is to improve your culinary skills because you get tired of white rice with tuna every night. What’s next? Scrambled egg with toasts? NO. It’s time to break the cycle. Don’t settle for the easy way. Try new things, challenge yourself. Why imagine it when you can live it?

  1. GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT

If dreams had legs, it would probably be their goal to reach us. However, since the mountain will not go to Muhammad, it’s about time for you to make a move. Open the door, get out of the house, expose yourself. If you get lost on the way, activate step five of this guide.

Each new route has a secret that helps us to understand where we are standing or tell us what comes next. We are not alone. Words. Sensations. Gestures. Flavors. Random smiles from strangers. Everything connects us to a beautiful blanket full of colors to which we are only a thread, and our actions interlace us to other threads to form wonderful and unique patterns.
