We all have dreams and some of us are very fortunate in being able to make them happen. Unfortunately for some, however, dreams are lost as they do not achieve their potential and dedicate themselves to what they truly desire. This can be caused by attachments and bad habits which weigh them down. If, for example, you are studying to become a Legal Secretary, you may find yourself taking a long time with your studies because of distractions from friends or the TV. You know that you would really like to become a Legal Secretary but you never seem to find enough time to achieve your goal.
A good exercise to carry out is to write down all of your bad habits and note the negative impact they have on your life at present, then in 1 month, 6 months, 1 year and 5 years if you continue with these habits. After you have done this, write down how you perceive yourself to be in 1 month, 6 months, 1 year and 5 years if you replace these bad habits with good habits. This exercise will force you to shift your perception of short-term pleasures to long-term goals and will give you the power to unleash your potential.
Continuous effort, not intelligence or strength, is the key to unlocking your potential. Winston Churchill
Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: the potential for greatness lives within each of us. Wilma Rudolph
