In order for any of us to be successful we have to be in the right frame of mind. We have to believe that we can achieve what we are dreaming about and we have to be willing to take action to make it happen. As the old saying goes, if wishes were horses then we would all ride.

So we know that it is important to have the right mindset, to dream big dreams for ourselves and to take the actions we need to get started and to keep going.  Here are some important things to remember along the way:

  1. You don’t have to have all the answers. Usually the questions are way more important.
  2. It’s okay if you feel uncomfortable being so uncertain while you try to grow and figure things out. That discomfort is what will push you to move beyond where you are now and strengthen what you are capable of achieving.
  3. Change takes time. Who you are now is the result of your past thoughts and actions. Who you will become will also take time to develop and to settle in as your new normal. So don’t get frustrated and give up.
  4. Habits help you with your transformation. Practicing the new behaviors that you want to have or focusing on the new way of thinking is something that you must do regularly until it becomes so automatic that your mind sees no other path to follow.
