7 Steps to Success (5)

Logo for steps to success

Step 5



WOW!  Only about 2% of the people stick it out to make their dreams a reality, you must be a special person.

If you did not skip any steps, you truly are a person of high caliber.  Awesomeness is part of who you are and who you are becoming.  You can take these next few steps to bring real awesomeness to the world around you.

Today we work on daily choices.  “What? Daily choices? You didn’t say ANYTHING about working on this every day.” Well you aren’t going to make a change if you only stick to your values some of the time.

Did the Great Wall of China get built in a day? Absolutely not, it was worked on every single day to completion. You are building the great tower of you. But this tower has no limit. None. Zip. Zero. Nada.  You are growing to accomplish your dreams and you must work at it every day.

If you want to get somewhere in life, let your dreams nudge you everyday so you can get closer to reaching your goals.  Goals are dreams in action.


You are going to write goals that will make you accomplish your dreams. Easy right?

Well, there’s a little more to it than that. Anyone can set a goal, but only the people who actively pursue them get them done.

Give yourself a deadline on each goal. Set real dates that you must accomplish this goal by or the world WILL END . . .okay, so the world won’t end, but won’t you work harder if you thought it might?

After you write your goals and deadlines, write down action steps that it will take for you to accomplish each goal. (If you started these 7 steps on Monday, this should be Friday, so take a couple of days to get this done.  We will have your last two steps up on Monday and Tuesday.)  It is getting real and you are a real person of awesomeness.  We can’t wait to see what you do with all of this.

Focus on writing your goals and setting a deadline, with action steps, for each goal. This isn’t homework this is playing Lego with yourself.  You are building yourself up and your goals are the pieces.

Bonus Tip:

Write yourself a letter from the future.  State your goals as if they have already happened.  Send a letter to yourself from 6 month (or a year) ahead as if these goals have already been accomplished and include the amazing impact that they have had.


Do you have any goals you would like to share with us?

These are based a strategy from Brooks Gibbs, a youth motivational speaker who wrote a book on bullying called Love>Hate. It is a great book and well worth your reading, plus it is short and easy to read!

Listen to this song that
Idiosyncratic Al did for us:


He is 21, so that is close enough to a teen to be on this page!
