How to accomplish your dreams

"We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort." Jesse Owens 
There are certain steps you have to take in order to make your dreams come true. Here's what I learned.
1. Make a plan: know what you want and what you have to do to get there. If you want to be a youtuber, then you have to make videos; if you want to be a doctor you have to study hard. If you know what you have to do to accomplish your dreams then you're one baby step closer.
2. Start now: don't keep postponing it. You know what you want and, you know what you have to do. Now start doing it. The more you wait the longer it will take. Remember: "never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it, time will pass anyway."
3. Set short-term goals: this way you don't get discouraged because your goal isn't that far away. The secret is always to take baby steps.
4. Stay motivated: once I read a book by Jorge Bucay and there was this little story with a really deep meaning (just like every book by him), the best part of it was this quote that's been stuck in my head since I read it: "La magia solo dura mientras persiste el deseo." Now this one I dare you to translate yourself. But what this is saying is that, if we want magic to happen, we need to be persistent and work hard for our dreams; and always stay motivated. 
A good way to stay motivated is visualizing your goals, make an inspiration board or keep a journal.
5. Let everyone know what you're working for: always let your close ones know what your dream is and what you're working for. Turn to them for motivation and accept constructive criticism.
6. Work hard and never give up! You will get it one day. Remember "there's no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs."
*The book I talked about is called  "Let me tell you a story" I'll have the link on the right corner of the blog in case you want to read it, which I highly recommend!
