What can you do if you get stuck in daydreams?

The most common issue people have with personal development and making a positive change is that it stays a daydream. That they get excited and inspired.

But then as those positive emotions fade nothing really happens.

Life continues as usual. Your health, finances or your relationship with yourself stays the same.

So what can you do if you get stuck in daydreams? The best solution I've found for starting to make your dreams into reality is "to go smaller."

Go for just taking a small step.

Now, taking just one small step and focusing on that is a great way to become productive at school or at work or any area in your life.

Break tasks into bite sized chunks and start taking action.

Example: I can improve my relationship with my colleagues at work by being a good listener.

Sounds easy? Then go for it!

Go for just taking care of today.

When you feel overwhelmed, tired and just want to quit or relapse into your old and more negative habits then sit down for a minute.

Breathe

Then narrow your focus greatly. Don’t look forward because then you’ll see all the things you have to do to reach your goal or to create a new habit.

Instead, go smaller and focus on just taking care of today.

Focus on just the small steps and on 'today'

Nothing more. Tomorrow will come in time. And then you will take care of that today too.

Sure, you may have to do some planning. Do that early in the week or day. Then shrink your focus again to make your work and life lighter and more effortless.

Focus on just the small steps and on today and soon you will have traveled quite a distance.

All the best!
