After you have come down from the excitement that envisioning you already achieving and therefore living out your dream.
After the return to reality and the humdrum, boring and tediousness drudgery of your existence in comparison; you must go on.
You need to pick yourself up and trudge forward, but how do you do that? How can you not let the image of your dream turn into a constant reminder of your failure to achieve said dream, thus far?
The trick is to let yourself get annoyed, but for the right reasons. The trick is to tell yourself that you deserve that dream that the current situation that you are living in, (whatever that may be) is:
• Less than you deserve.
• A path to where you want to go.
• Something that you can handle.
Likewise, convince yourself that your dream is:
• Where you will be.
• What you deserve to have.
• A stepping stone to even greater things.
• Something you will enjoy.
This method utilizes the carrot and the stick in motivating you to get off of your duff and keep moving towards achieving whatever it is that you want to achieve.
Get frustrated, get angry about your current situation. Don’t let that anger and frustration beat you down, use it as a fire to get you going.
As long as you are making steady progress, you will be able to keep making that steady progress. The trick here is to make sure to show yourself the steady progress that you are making.
This will help stave off the ‘I’m getting nowhere’ feelings from setting in. This is why I recommend setting a number of smaller, bite-sized goals on your way to achieving a larger goal.
I have a lot of dreams and goals that I have set out for myself. Paying off my Truck and Trailer, to become totally debt free is only one of them.
It is a starting point, from which I will move from and towards bigger and better things. I will need the freedom that comes with having a mobile place to live, no debts and yes, some cash in the bank.
I am most certainly not satisfied with my current situation, nor will I be living in an RV for the rest of my life. These are temporary conditions that are necessary for me to achieve what I want to achieve.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward.
