How To Achieve Your Life Goals And Dreams

Updated on May 18, 2012

Are you interested in knowing how to achieve your life goals and dreams? I bet you are, but knowing how to get your plans into action is your key to success, and never give up until you achieve that goal and dream.

Here is my story about how I achieved my life long dream and accomplished all of my goals in less than two years, after everything started to take shape, and I was heading to the finish line. (The beginning of my dream really started 30 years ago.) I know you are probably thinking, "why did it take so long right?"

In order to achieve anything in life it has to planned out, and every bit of positive energy put into accomplishing those goals and dreams.

First and foremost, you need to have a goal and a dream that you wish to achieve. When you come up with your dream and goal you must then put a plan of action into effect and get the ball rolling, and not drag you feet in doing so. Get right on it and don't stop until you achieve every bit of that dream and make it a reality.

You have to be determined and willing to do anything to make those dreams come true. If you never have any dreams or goals in life than you have nothing to go after in your life. You can't have your dreams or goals come true if you don't have any.

Anyone that knows me, whether it be here on HubPages or in my personal life knows that my life dream was to live at the shore and have a home by the Sea. This goal and dream started back 30 years ago. I knew for all through those years that shore living and to be near the Ocean was a bit expensive, but that didn't stop me from dreaming. I knew over time something would break and my dream and my goal would become a reality. I never gave up and keep my mind working to make it happen one day.

My wife and I thought of hundreds of ways we could make our dream come true, but everything that we thought of just didn't pan out for one reason or another. I was determined to have my home by the Sea one day. It just wasn't our time yet, so I keep the wheels turning and continued to think of ways to make that dream and my main goal come true.

After 30 long years it had finally happened and my dream and my goal in life came true. If I would of gave up thinking, and stopped dreaming, saying that there is no way I could afford living by the Ocean than my dream would just be a dream and would have never become a reality in our life.

You need to be persistent and determined enough to make those goals and dreams come true in your life. If you want something bad enough than it will happen. If you keep that positive attitude, and stay determined, your life will be just as you wanted it to be, but if you give up on that dream you will stay as you are and will never know just how great your life would of been if that goal and dream came true.

I just thought I would share my story and to let everyone know that any goal and dream you have in life can always come true if you work hard enough and think of any way to make it happen. Believe in yourself and believe that your goal and your dream will come true, and before you know it you will be living your dream as we are now.
