career leadership imageNow that we are halfway through January (already?!) the shine of a new year is fading. Did you take the time to write down your big goals at the beginning of the year? I hope so.

I hope you allowed yourself to dream big and write down some genuinely inspiring and game-changing goals for yourself, your career or business, your family, and your community.

Now what?

“When your dream is bigger than you are, you only have two choices:
give up or get help.”
~ John Maxwell

On your journey to fulfill your dreams in 2019, I don’t suppose you will encounter any obstacles.

Just in case you have an encountered an obstacle or two in the past, and you would like the resources in place ahead of the bumps, try this:
Surround yourself with smart and good people. You will know them by their values, courage, and expertise. Review the team that surrounds you, whether formal or informal. Do you have a team that encourages you, challenges you, nurtures you, or questions you, as the situation demands? For some of us, it is difficult to ask for help.

John Maxwell said, “When your dream is bigger than you are, you only have two choices: give up or get help.”

How to Sustain Your Dream — and Make Measure-able Progress

Have you broken down your big goals into smaller and actionable goals? Can you quantify and act upon the progress you need to make this month so you can celebrate the big wins come December?

Do you have the help you need? Are you trying to do it all? Do you find it difficult to let go of a task that isn’t in your wheelhouse because you are afraid it won’t be done right?

Does someone on your team help you not only see your blind spots but also address them?

Dig deep for honest answers and see if you can’t lighten your burden. This route frees you up to do your best work and provides the fuel required for sustainable success.
