I plan my dream

“You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” – Zig Ziglar

Put plan to action

I have been wanting to write for so long but could not muster enough energy to do that. The last few months have been totally taxing for me. It wore me down easily and I felt as though I lost all my self-confidence. Well, that’s just human I guess.

As soon as I would wake up, I would always feel the urge to do something worthwhile that day but couldn’t actually do so. Well, today was no exception, but it was different at the same time.

I have been reading online resources on brushing up your life skills and training yourself to be positive for the last few months without actually performing any of the tips or suggestions. However, today, I got up and actually wrote down my reinvention plan for 2015.

Writing down a plan to fulfill your dream is much more insightful instead of just confining your dreams in your thoughts on what you wanna be in the future. When I got down to write the plan, my dream felt tangible. It felt as though I will be able to fulfill it without having to wait for long. In other words, writing my plan helped me live the dream and provided me self-confidence.

For this I would like to give credit to all the resources that I read online on developing one’s life skills. Special credit goes to Kathryn Sanford. I stumbled upon Kathryn while I was going through the rummages in Facebook. Her recount of her past resonated with what I am, or rather was, going through at the moment. Kathryn has worked as a teacher, deputy principal, project manager and business consultant. Working with incompetent bosses rendered her redundant 3 times in 18 months. Life was harsh. However, she survived because of her passion for life.

What Kathryn wrote on her blog definitely convinced me to do something with my life. I am a proactive person by nature. But the last few months seemed really challenging. Every time I tried to bring my life back on track, it would rebound and I would fall flat on my back. But this time I can say with great deal of confidence that I will not fall short of realizing my dream anymore.

Life is a roller-coaster ride. I’m sure that even though I have the plan, it will not be a cakewalk for me to achieve my goal. As Robin Sharma said that relentless beats intelligence, I’m on my way to take on the gauntlet life throws at me. With carefully chalked-out actions and tasks, I am sure I will be able to overcome challenges.

Let me leave you with more quotes on the importance of planning.

  • “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” – Abraham Lincoln
  • “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
  • “By failing to prepare, your are preparing to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin

        Thank you dai. I’m trying to brush up my blogging skills as I really feel the need to do so at the moment. I’ve been out of the scene for a very long time.
        How have you been? I hope you will be able to find a permanent base soon.

        The REPLY button is missing half the time so the comments don’t go into the correct places. I’m okay, Ayushma and just tolerating my present situation. I’ve had to wait at home for three or four days because I’m expecting two packages from the UK and my bank ATM card to arrive. I had one delivery yesterday of some Portuguese language books. Today I need to go hunting for porridge.

    I’m glad you know that you can handle whatever challenges you are given in life. It isn’t always easy but it is worth it. I remember reading once that Mother Theresa said something like “I believe God won’t give me more than I an handle but sometimes I wish he didn’t have so much faith in me.”

    Life is an exciting journey. I’m glad you are committed to achieving your goals. I love the Abraham Lincoln quote.
