Now, I’m a mother of two college-aged daughters and my tenacity hasn’t diminished. I’ve been through some trials, battles, and massive disappointments but I keep pushing myself to be better than I was yesterday, I keep learning and growing.
Often people think they want to do something, but … it’s not something they’re really passionate about. If you’re passionate about something, you can’t wait to do it, and you’ll clear your schedule and make the time to do it. You’ll find a way, and when you’re doing it, you’re excited and happy (and maybe even a little obsessed).
That means every day, when you wake up, decide what you’re going to do to make that dream a reality. Then do that task first thing in the day, before even checking email. If you can’t do it first thing, schedule time for it. If it’s a priority, you’ll make the time.
But what about work and family? Obviously those are also priorities, so you’ll have to schedule time for all three. That might mean cutting back on watching TV, doing less Internet surfing, or spending less time on email. Place limits on these routine-type activities, so that you can find the time to work on your dreams.
You might consider waking up earlier, or working late at night when your family is asleep. You might go in to work early so you’ll have some quiet time to work on your dreams, or work on your dreams during lunchtime.
You can make the time, if you make it a priority. Remember to never stop pushing yourself to achieve your goals. You only have one life to live and you don’t want to have any regrets when you look back over your life.
