Updated: May 22, 2020

Take a deep breath in your nose and out of your mouth. Now imagine yourself exactly where you want to be and doing exactly what you want to be doing. Are you at that location? Are you doing what you're imagining yourself doing? Do you feel you're where you want to be in your life right now? If so, that's great. However, I imagine there's still room for more goals. On the other hand, if you're not where you want to be, what do you feel like is holding you back? Setting goals and dreaming big and small can be a mind-racking experience. You have all these plans. You get excited as you think about all the possibilities, then negativity and doubt set in. You begin to wonder what others will think if you were to tell them your big plans. You fear the ridicule and embarrassment of failure. You're afraid that you may not have what it takes to accomplish what you've set to accomplish. You start doubting yourself, and all the excitement and enthusiasm you once had for accomplishing your goal fades as fear takes over. You retreat swiftly from your dreamland and back into your reality, wondering if your dreamland is even capable of becoming your reality. Well, I just want to say yes it is and you can do it!
