So many people say they have goals or intentions, yet they don’t do anything to achieve them. They seem to think that just saying, “I want to ___” is enough to make it happen. Even creating a vision board around that intention can’t manifest it into being if you don’t start taking action.
Know your why
Limit your goals
Set milestones (and celebrate them!)
