ou know those dreams that are so far out of reach you can’t even begin to comprehend a path that would get you one step closer to them, so you just keep trying things over and over again hoping something will work just once, but it never does. If so, then this one's for you.

Here are my top 5 ways to crushing your goals and making your dreams come true.

The first thing you’ll want to do is create a vision board. As big as you can. You want to make sure you fill this up with everything you could ever dream of. I like to do vision boards once a year, so I primarily put everything on it that goes with how I envision the year going, plus the obvious big goals too.

Don’t be reasonable. Put things on there that mean the world to you if they became a reality, things you would move mountains for. It could be something like a financial goal or a career goal. It could even be reading 10 books! I also like doing a “but why” statement with certain dreams to vibe exactly where my passion is at for this specific dream. This is basically where I write all of the reasons why I want this dream to become a reality and what my life would be like with it, almost like manifestation. Once your vision board is complete, you’ll want to place it somewhere you will look at it every day to remind yourself of why you do what you do daily, to get you closer to your dreams.

Second, you will want to assess each main area of your vision board and create a timeline of how long it is going to take you to accomplish this goal. Most of these for me are within the year and some are as far out as 5-10 years, like my dream house and dream career. When picking a time for a certain dream or goal, make sure you are being just as unreasonable as you are being reasonable. Meaning, if it is physically impossible for something to happen in a certain time frame don’t say it’ll happen by then. AND if you know you can do something in a certain amount of time but have FEELINGS telling you otherwise, WHO CARES, be an unreasonable, baby!! You can and will do it!!

Third, pick something that is most important to you, something that made your “but why” statement jump off the page and light a fire in your soul. Something that is relatively closest to now in your timeline. Something that may also get the ball rolling in other goals and dreams. This is where you’ll begin.

Fourth. Plan. Plan. Plan. Plan every little detail. Put it all in your calendar. Make sure that your plan is foolproof. Make sure it is realistic. Make sure it is unreasonable. Make sure you didn’t leave anything out. This is the second most important step to the entire process. You need to make sure you are impeccable with your planning. You have to plan your work so you can work your plan blind folded. This is where you turn all of your dreams into goals and this is where we make the magic happen.

Lastly, WORK THAT PLAN BABY!! This is by far the most IMPORTANT part of the process. Your goals and dreams will not manifest themselves; you need to put the work in to get whatever it is that you desire. The more you work the more results you will see. Everything you put in that calendar became a commitment the moment you put it in there. You must honor your word and do what you set out to do when you said you would do it. Now, there are going to be times where you break this promise and you do not honor your word. That is ok. You are not bad or wrong. Plan it this time with a fool proof structure that won’t allow you to not follow through with it next time.

I promise you, if you follow these 5 steps you will be that much closer to crushing your goals and making your dreams come true. Have any questions or want to chat more, hit me up on Instagram @ambersabourin
