Last week on the podcast, I talked about Dreaming Big (listen to episode 4 HERE!), which is one my strengths. Today I'm talking about Making Things Happen — NOT one of my strengths. 😂

A here are a few show notes to (hopefully) help you Make Things Happen!
I struggle with procrastinating, following through, and sticking with things. I tend to want Instant Gratification... I can SEE the vision, but I just don't feel like doing the work RIGHT now. 😬 I also get Bored — Every new idea is exciting, but the work involved to get there isn't as fun.
So, HOW can we make things happen?
We need to MAKE A PLAN.
If you're not making a plan, you're not going to know what to do first. So sit down, and write a plan for your big dream.
Make a List.
What do you need to get to that big dream? What's going to get you where you want to be in life? What do you need to eliminate to get you to a better life? List EVERYTHING you can think of. 👊🏻
SET THOSE THINGS in your calendar.
If you don't see the things on your list, they're NOT going to get done.
You have to ACTUALLY DO THE THINGS.
If you don't do the work, the dream will never happen.
If we don't keep our promises to ourselves, then we learn that we aren't trustworthy. - Rachel Hollis' book, Girl, Wash Your Face.
