Wishing will never get you anywhere. You have to have a concrete plan with achievable targets, deadlines and you have to keep yourself accountable daily. Of course, your destination may seem impossibly out of reach, but if instead of concentrating on the end goal, you concentrate on what you can do right now, today, in order to reach it. You take actionable steps and suddenly, your destination doesn’t seem so distant anymore.
Make yourself accountable. Every evening you wake up and every night, before you go to bed, ask yourself what did you do today in order to be closer to where you aim to be. If you didn’t do anything - take note. If you did - congratulate yourself as you used your day well. Progress, no matter how small, is still progress.
