If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve.
Do what you love, and don't stop until you get what you love.
Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities, don't compromise, and don't waste time.
Start now. Not 20 years from now, not two weeks from now. Now.
It's that time of year when, even though you're busy and into the seasonality of the fourth quarter, you're still able to find those isolated moments when you think about the future. It doesn't matter if you're day-dreaming and thinking a few months or a few years ahead. There's a new year coming up and as hokey as it sounds, it's guaranteed to be filled with wonder!
So often many of us share the same challenge - we set our goals too low, making them too achievable. I remember a line from years back that went, "If you shoot for the stars you'll at least get to the top of the trees, but shoot for the top of the trees and you won't get off the ground!"
You're never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.
C. S. Lewis
Goal setting is so important, and there are far more prolific writers than me who have shared their wisdom on the subject, but here's the short and sweet way I look at goals. You need a destination whenever you're going somewhere. That destination can always change along the way, but you still need to know the direction in which you're about to travel and then savor each part of the journey.
Follow your dreams. They know the way!
