Every year at the beginning of the year you probably have a new vigor and enthusiasm proclaiming this is a New Year, this is My Year! You start off at full steam the first few weeks of the year but by February you are back where you were talking about your wishes, hopes, and dreams but not acting upon them.
Write the vision and make it plain. I read an article years back that said, people who wrote down their goals were more likely to achieve them.
So whatever it is you want to do in 2010 write it down. Write down your goals, wishes, dreams and desires for 2010. Think big and realistic at the same time. Once you write down your goals break them down into obtainable action items. Things that need to be completed little by little to attain your larger goal.
I also read in an article, people who share their dreams/goals with others are less likely to achieve them because in speaking about them one feels that their goals have in some way already been met.
There is no need to tell people about your goals and your dreams unless you need their assistance on achieving them.
It is better to keep quiet as showing is better than telling. The time is now, the moment is here, action is necessary to move forward talk less/do more!
By all means enlist the assistance or help of a mentor someone who has achieved the very success you desire in whatever area it may be i.e saving money, weight loss, starting a business etc.
By all means learn as much as you can about whatever it is you desire to do. The more knowledge you have in the area the better equipped you become for success. Give everything that you attempt 100% of your effort.
Risk is necessary, you may not succeed at everything you attempt but a lesson will be learned from it!
