Do you have something that you want to do or a dream that you want to achieve but it seems impossible to achieve? Sometimes goals appear so far in the distance that you begin to believe they are impossible to achieve. Yet, most goals are achievable when you believe it is possible and take consistent action towards it.
Your goal may appear impossible but you can turn the impossible into possible.
How to turn the impossible to possible.
Selfbelief. The first step in making the impossible possible is to believe it is possible. You need to believe in your dreams and the life you wish to create for yourself for it to become true.
Ask yourself why you would like to achieve the goal you have set yourself?
Visualize yourself achieving the goals. How does it feel? Visualizing your ideal day helps you realise the possibilities you have and the action you need to take to achieve your goals.

Seek guidance from mentors.
There are many ways to seek guidance from mentors. It can be via paid membership groups, coaching and even self mentorship. With so many free ways to learn and develop skills, there really is no excuse not to get started.
Reading blogs. Reading blogs about the things you want to do will enable you to have an idea of what is ahead of you and how to tackle it. There is virtually a blog about anything. Just type the thing you want to do on your computer’s browser and you will find plenty of blogs about that particular thing.
As you read the blogs, read the about page. You may just find that they too started somewhere and may not be that far ahead of you. The benefits of following someone who is only a few steps ahead of you is that it is relatable. The goal appears more achievable.
When you find other bloggers doing what you would like to do, you realize that it is possible to achieve your goal. If they can do it so can you.
Read personal development books: I also find reading personal development books very powerful as there are always so many tips and actions to assist in promoting the right mindset to reach your goals.
Tip: No time to read, listen to books on audible.
Listen to podcasts: Podcasts are awesome as you can listen to them on the go. I personally listen to podcasts as I drive. I find listening to podcasts really motivating. There are always action steps I can implement for personal growth.
The main thing when investing in yourself via personal development or skill-building is to action the tasks you learn.
It’s your road, yours alone. Others will walk with you. No one can walk it for you.
Attend webinars. Webinars are basically seminars conducted over the internet. These webinars are a great way to learn something new. They are conducted by professionals and are aimed at helping people to learn tips, how to do things and getting knowledge about a particular subject.
Learn from YouTube. YouTube is an invaluable tool when it comes to learning how to do things. There are thousands of videos on YouTube that teach people how to do almost everything; learning how to play the guitar, taking great pictures with your iPhone, how to start a blog, how to market your business. The list what you can learn on YouTube is endless. Two years ago my husband started a YouTube channel sharing tips on ARCHICAD. If you are interested in Architectural 3D you will find his channel here.
There was a time I used to be annoyed that the kids were always watching things on YouTube, now I think the tides have turned as I am the one always checking for things on YouTube. One thing I always do if I need to find out how to do something is ‘Google it’ or ‘YouTube it’.
Invest time in whatever you want to achieve.
If you are interested in learning something new you will have the motive to research about that particular thing. For example, if you are interested in starting a blog, you will need to research it and then take the steps to start it. One of the easiest ways to start a blog is with Start a mom blog. Start a mom blog is a step by step guide that helps you set up your blog and start blogging.
It takes time to learn something new.
Thomas Jefferson famously said “If you want something you’ve never had. You must be willing to do something you’ve never done.”
When I started blogging the one piece of advice I was given was don’t quit. The road to a successful blog is don’t quit. I’ve learnt a lot, I’ve got a lot to learn. I’ll always be learning and implementing as I go.
Practice what you learn.
Practice what you learn. The saying is practice makes perfect. Most important is that you implement what you learn as it helps you remember it. It is not about perfection. It is about learning and personal growth. As you learn also teach the skill to someone else. Live with the principle ‘learn, do, teach.’.
Network with people with similar interests.
When you network with people who share the same interest, you will be able to share ideas, challenge each other, ask for feedback and above all encourage one another. Networking is a great way of making the impossible possible by supporting each other’s personal journeys.
Nothing is impossible in this world. Just have an interest, be ready and willing to learn, practice what you learn and network with people with similar interests and with time, you will achieve your goals.
