Are You Confident Enough To Achieve Your Dreams? [EXPERT]
When you wish upon a star ...
Turn your wildest dreams into your reality today!

When I announced to my family and friends that I was moving to California to help people achieve their dreams, they looked at me like I had lost my mind. They said things like, "You used to be so credible. Can't you call this goal setting?" Although I agree that goals are essential to making your dreams come true, there is a very different energy around dreams.

People have more passion and juice when a dream is involved. Dreaming forces you to swing outside of just being realistic. At a certain point, it is essential to move from dreams to goals, but if you go to goal setting and strategy too soon, you'll probably compromise your dreams down to what you know you can realistically accomplish. Dreams often allow for more creativity and imagination. 5 Steps To Self-Love & Happiness [EXPERT]

More from YourTango: Love and Dreams

Ask yourself these questions: If time and money weren't issues, what would you do? If you had the support of the people around you to do what you truly want, what would that be? And, if you knew you could not fear, what would you pursue? How do you tell the difference between a dream and a goal? How Your Doubts Can Fuel Your Dreams

Goals and projects have specific due dates. A dream that never becomes a goal often remains a fantasy or nice idea. When you only set goals based on what you know, you may limit yourself and the possibilities of your most heartfelt dreams.

Dream first by getting your ideas, needs, wants, hopes and desires all down on paper. Put into your dreams everything that you want and leave out what you don't want. Next, break big or long-term dreams down into projects that can easily be accomplished in one month or less.

Why a month? It's a long enough time to produce a real result but also short enough to keep your passion ignited. This is critical for accomplishing your dreams. How To Turn Your Dreams Into Reality

Use goals and projects with specific and measurable results to track your progress and ensure success. But start with your dreams to follow your heart.
