      Dreams are your “door opener” to opportunity. The key is turning the dreams into a plan and then taking action on the plan.
    When used properly dreams are a springboard to your future success. They are your tools for self-exploration and will provide you with ideas, enthusiasm, and determination.

Here’s how to turn your dream of higher grades into positive results:

      1. Dreams increases inspiration – Challenge to actively think about getting higher grades.

      2. Inspiration increases ambition – Challenge to dedicate yourself to getting them.

      3. Ambition increases desire – Dare to ask someone to help you.

      4. Desire increases enthusiasm – Dare to think positively about getting higher grades.

      5. Enthusiasm increases motivation – Dare to tell others about your excitement.

      6. Motivation increases planning – Dare to clearly define your challenge or desire. What grade do you want? Which subject?

      7. Planning increase goal setting – Dare to write down your goal, add specific action steps and a completion date.

      8. Goal setting increases determination – Confront to move closer to your goal by completing your action steps that move you closer to your goal.

      9. Determination increases action – Dare to take positive action on your dreams.

      10. Action increases results – Congratulate yourself on a job well done.

You are a WINNER!

Make sure your dreams are telling you that on a regular basis.
