3 Ways Dreamers Can Become Doers

Want to see your dreams become a reality? Keep reading. I’ve always been a dreamer. I would daydream in classes that I was accepting an award for a television show, or that I was getting interviewed by Ellen. I didn’t realize until recently that being a dreamer isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I just needed to figure out a way to become a doer. Over the years, I have learned to take big dreams, make a plan, and put it into action. I will share my three secrets to become a doer. 

1. Take big dreams and think smaller 

You read that right. It’s time to make your big dreams and make them smaller. This does not mean to stop dreaming big! All you need to do is think about a plan with smaller steps to achieve the bigger plan. For instance, if you want to save $1,000 in a year – you need to save around $20 a week. Look how easy that was! If you think smaller, big dreams don’t look that big anymore. Here’s another example, if you want to hit 10K on Instagram – start by reaching 1,000 first. Then, go from there. *NOTE: The most important thing about this tip is to make sure you can reach the smaller goals. If you don’t give yourself attainable goals  – you will give up faster! Whenever you hit a smaller goal, you will feel more inspired to keep going! Trust me. Recently, my parents tried dieting and exercising and started to lose weight. As soon as they saw the weight change on the scale  – it inspired them to keep going. They have both lost over 40 pounds and I couldn’t be more proud. 

2. Do research, then make a plan

I dread the word research, but I promise it isn’t as bad as it sounds. When I wanted to become a TV host at age 13-years-old, I started to do research on Oprah. I was pleasantly surprised to see she started in radio and has a very humble background. This was really refreshing to me. Hard work does payoff! It’s not just a phrase. Everyone reached their goals somehow. You may not reach your goals the same way, but it’s inspiring to see that it’s possible! No dream is too big. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that. Just make a plan to implement. If you need your degree  – finish it! If you need money – save it! If you need time – make time for it. Anything is possible, the sky isn’t the limit (you are). Only you can set a limit on your dreams and the future outcome. 

3.  Work hard, and do it for yourself 

You know how I said, I have been dreaming to become a national TV host? Well, I did become a local TV host in Calaveras County when I was 13, but on a small scale. I’ve been working non-stop for the last 7 years hoping my big dream will happen. I know, eventually it will  – if I keep pushing forward. Dreams don’t happen overnight, or at random, unless you are the yodeling kid at Walmart. If you aren’t familiar with the story, he yodeled at Walmart and became famous. I wish it happened like that for everyone, but that’s why I’m sharing these 3 secrets to become a doer. 

Not to mention, some people will not believe in you. They will think you are crazy. You need to always remember why you are pursuing a dream. For me, I want to become a national television host to have a platform for people to share stories of God’s faithfulness. That’s why I continue to work harder and harder each day to make that happen. I have small goals for my bigger dreams. 

Your dreams will become reality when you least expect it. Keep dreaming big, but think small to make it attainable. Also, you need to get some inspiration by doing research to make a plan. Lastly, it’s going to take hard work. Don’t forget why your dreams matter.

In case nobody has told you this  – you got this!
