Do you spend your days daydreaming and wanting something you don’t have?
Or, do you spend your days transforming dreams into actionable plans from a place of already having what you want?
I know what you’re thinking: How can I possibly pretend I have what I don’t have?
Here’s an extremely short story for ya:
I went from full-time dreamer to full-time achiever the night I started my online business. I wanted to create something extraordinary for myself. I always knew there was something more to life than putting in the hours for my boss at my 9 to 5.
I mean, there had to be more to life.
So, let me ask you again…
Do you dream?
Do you have something tugging at your heartstrings telling you you’re made for more?
Do you want to go from a total dreamer to a doer?
1. Makeover your mindset
Before we do anything, we have to get your mindset on the right track, girl.
Everything starts with the way you think.
Any dream you want to manifest into reality starts with thinking supportive and hopeful thoughts about it.
This is what I mean when I say practice believing that which you don’t yet have.
Believe it is possible for you and you shall be blown away by all the possibilities that’ll make an appearance if you shift your mindset just a tad.
Here’s a breakdown of how the world works:
Our thoughts create our emotions.
Our emotions fuel our actions.
Our actions determine our results.
Stay with me, dreamer.
Everything you do in life is because of the way you feel.
The results you have in your life right in this very moment can be traced back to a thought you have thought in the past.
If you’re not yet living your dream life it’s because you haven’t had the belief that it is possible for you.
Once you know this, you can make the effort to change your current belief system to better support the results you want in your life.
If you take action from a place of feeling motivated and believing you’re capable, you will have amazing results in your life. There is absolutely no doubt about it.
Your results will always confirm your beliefs.
You have to makeover your mindset first. This is the most important step when going through the transformation of the dreamer to doer.
It all starts with the sentences you have in your head.
2. Set specific goals
Setting goals is the heart and the foundation of going from dreamer to doer.
Without goals, there is no direction and we need that GPS to be able to move forward, create clarity and turn our plans into actual results.
To have amazing results, you need to set amazing goals.
And not just any goals – specific goals.
Don’t just write down a generic goal like, “I want to have a successful online business.”
What does success mean to you? Is it $50.000 in revenue, $100.000, or 5 happy clients?
Niche down your goal and make it uber-specific.
What do you want to achieve and by when?
3. Say hello to your new supportive habits
Implementing supportive habits that boost the likelihood of you succeeding at your goal is a must.
Habits come in all shapes and sizes.
Have a look at your life as it is now and evaluate how your current habits are supporting your dreams and goals.
If they don’t, it’s time to change it up, girl.
Let’s say your goal is to start an online business so you can quit your soul-sucking day job.
What habits can you implement that align with this goal?
Perhaps you can…
Wake up early and work on your business before your day-job (Ex. from 6 AM to 8 AM)
Meditate for 10 minutes for clarity and creativity
Do mindset work to get into the right space for entrepreneurship (or a badass side-hustler)
Having supportive habits and routines in place is what will give you results.
You have to continue to show up for yourself and be consistent with everything you do.
These habits will accumulate over time and give you the results of your dreams.
Small changes, big results.
4. Planning like a queen
Once you’ve got your routines and habits that support your goal in place, it’s time for my favorite part of the dreamer to doer transformation: the planning phase.
This is when you turn into a complete planning maniac – like yours truly.
Planning is amazing and so much fun. But it’s easy to go overboard with planning.
Too much planning is just procrastination in disguise.
