Whether you have a personal dream or a business vision, unless you do something to manifest that vision in the real world, it will not materialize.

At its core, the process is simple:

  1. Write out your long range vision,
  2. Determine intermediate and short-term goals (or projects) that will bring you closer to that vision,
  3. Take action and implement steps that will help you reach your goals.

The bigger the vision, the more nebulous the path to accomplishing it may be. But no matter what size your dream/vision is, you need to take concrete steps to make it happen.

You need to keep the long range vision in mind, you need to focus on your shorter-term goals, and you need to take action.

Just as importantly, you need to keep yourself open for new opportunities, contacts and information that will help you move forward and clarify the path. You may not actually be attracting them but when they come you don't want to miss them because you are not paying attention.

Then you need the persistence and stamina to stick with it.

As I always say, every dream may not manifest the way you intended (or maybe not at all) but life is not about achieving your dreams, it is about growing as you strive to achieve your dreams.

Enjoy the journey, the view along the way can be better than the vision at the end.
