Your actions determine your future. When you have lofty goals and aspirations, without an action plan and subsequent actions to accomplish them, they are merely dreams. Each step you take in the present determines what will happen in the future. Think of your goals like a bank account. Each action, regardless how small, is a deposit into that account. An accumulation of these ‘deposits’ takes you closer to your goal. At the end of each day, make an honest assessment about your accomplishments, and determine whether the actions take you closer to accomplishing your goals. If they do, great! If not, don’t be discouraged. It is important to persevere...just keep trying.
Onwards and Upwards!
