Build a Foundation That Supports Chasing Big Dreams

When your life feels like a mess, it might be a tough time to launch a business that directly competes with Facebook or to plan an assault on the summit of Everest. If it seems chaotic around you, it may be time well spent getting that chaos under greater control before taking on those really big goals.

Here are some steps to build a foundation that will support chasing your dreams:

  ~1 Get control of your financial situation. Can you pay your bills on time consistently? Do you have enough money to buy food and clothing as needed? Is there enough money left over each month to pursue your number one hobby, enjoy a social life, and save something for the future?  Ensure that you are moving toward having a livable income.

  ~2 Get your physical health in order. This means eating well, and getting some exercise.  Be sure that you're treating any chronic medical conditions to the best of your ability.  Your health is more important than making your first million or moving to Tibet to write your memoirs.

  ~3 Have at least one hobby that you love. Life ought not be just be about work, chores, and socializing. Find something that you've always wanted to learn or explore and begin doing it. If you want to master something, it can take decades. You'll appreciate having a hobby more as you spend more time with it.

  ~4 Take care of the little things. Mow your grass, keep your house tidy, keep your car in good repair. All of these little things make a positive impact on the energy around you. It's touch to manage the big things if the little things aren't managed too.

You will be happier and ultimately more successful if you can master the day-to-day issues of life.
