Saying you want it is one thing. Acting as if you really want it is another.
It's not enough that you say it. You have to act on it.
Planning, dreaming, writing it down, visualizing, and even praying for it can only take you so far. But, if you don't execute, nothing will happen.
How would I know? Because I have been planning, dreaming, writing it down, and visualizing for five years. But, I still lack consistent action. From time to time, I don't act as if I really want it.
And yes, this blog post is also a note to myself. So, if you haven't been acting consistently, I feel you. Let's do better.
P.S. In case you are feeling overwhelmed, remember that it's doing the little things consistently that matters. It doesn't have to be big, but it has to be done consistently. It also doesn't have to be perfect. But, it has to be excellent. They are two different things.
