How to go after what you want in 5 steps

Step 1. List what you want- this may not be as simple as it sounds. Sometimes we find that we don't actually want something as much as we thought we would. Listing the things you want gets them out of your head and into the plan. 

Step2. Make a plan- Yes, this is a lot of work. Planning takes patience, time and effort. Also, you have to be realitsic and honest. Some steps are instant while others involve waiting and watching for opportunity. 

Step 3. Believe that you can achieve what you want- this is the hardest one for me. It's difficult to shut up the constant critic or even the echoes of nay sayers. But you can do this, especially if you believe in yourself. 

Step 4. Prepare for rejection - the harsh truth is that barely anyone gets what they want on their first try. You have to look at each rejection as a challenge instead of an obstacle. 

Step 5. Go for it! - Once you are moving, don't let anything stop you. Build your confidence and be sure to stay focused. How far are you willing to go to get that dream? To achieve that goal? 

"It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that things are difficult." - Lucius Annaeus Seneca
