How to take the first step towards your dreams?

how to take the first step towards you goal

You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

We have heard this phrase innumerable times but what confuses me always is how to take that first step ?

The first step is the most important because your first step is going to decide the direction of you path and where you would reach . May be all the paths reach to a single goal but the path you are going to take is the journey that you will be living all your life . It will stay with you forever and those experiences are going to build your life. So don’t we need to take that first step really cautiously rather than just moving forward?

Here are a few important points that may help you in taking the first step:

1. Set SMART goals. Setting vague targets is not going to take one far. The goals that we set need to be very Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Bound. In short, we should have smart goals. A new model for goal setting has become quite popular these days known as the HEART model for goal setting. You can take that approach too.

2. Conduct a small research. A lot of people would say just take the first step but I firmly believe that one should do a little research before getting oneself into a full-fledged plan. Theoretical and practical research in the field would help you a lot to formulate your goals and plans to achieve them.

3. Live a miniature version of your dream. What if you want to become something or achieve something just because the image of success in that field attracts you and what if you actually do not like the process of getting there. Would you not get frustrated during the journey? To avoid such situation, start with mini goals. For example, if you want to become a filmmaker, start by making short films from scratch, and upload them on Youtube. If you are still passionate about it after a few short films then go for it. If you want to become a teacher then try taking coaching classes first. Go for your dreams when you actually like being in the journey too.

4. Do not take suggestions from anyone and everyone. There are probably a 100 people around you giving you directions in 100 ways. The best you can do is stay away from them . Listen to them but do only what your heart says in the event of choosing your goals or the path of your life.

Taking the first step may not be easy but it's not that tough too.
