We all have dreams for the future.
Whether those dreams involve raising a family, owning a home, starting a business, retiring in health and comfort, or giving of ourselves and leaving a legacy, these are the things that get us up each day and push us forward.
Without a workable plan to reach them, however, our dreams never become goals. Instead, they remain mere hopes and wants, and we depend on luck and chance to reach them.
The journey we take in life toward those goals is very much like climbing a mountain, and your biggest goals are the peaks of that mountain.
It takes effort, time, and planning to climb a mountain.
You need the right tools and training, discipline, and commitment. It’s most helpful if you have a guide who has been to the top many times, to lead you past the danger spots, point the way when you get lost, and even carry the load at times.
And you need checkpoints along the way, to make sure you’re on track and are prepared to take the next part of the journey.
