Some people wait and hope for good luck to come their way, and other people actively take steps toward the future they wish for themselves. Here are some of the things they do to make their own luck:
VISUALIZE where you’d like to be in the future – your ideal job, home, relationships.
IMAGINE what it will be like when you achieve goals you have set for yourself.
PLAN out the mini-steps needed to get from here to there. Do research if you need to know what is required to get to where you want to arrive.
START off down your path. The first step can be difficult, so set yourself up for success by making it easy to take a mini step.
REWARD your first baby steps. Even Olympic track stars had to take a first step before they could start winning races. Find something you really enjoy, a movie you’ve wanted to stream, or scrolling through images of your favorite things, and tell yourself that as soon as you take that first step toward your goal you can spend time on what you want to do.
STRETCH from baby steps to middle-sized steps when it feels right. Even if you’re not ready for giant steps, you can go a long way with just one tiny step after another.
Keep on rewarding yourself as you move forward. If you get stuck, re-evaluate your goals and your steps. Are there other in-between steps that you left out? Is there someone who has gone down this path before that you can ask for advice? Use mentors whenever you can.
When you reach a goal, whether one of your major goals or an interim step along the way, acknowledge that you did it! You didn’t just get lucky, you worked and achieved your goal, yourself. Be proud of yourself, because you deserve it.
