9 Steps To Make Your Dreams Come True

Want to increase the chances you will make your dreams come true?

Here’s a powerful and logical tool to help! Read on…

 You know the famous expression:

“I think therefore I am”?

Well, I have an update for it:

“I INK therefore I am!”

When you put your goals in ink – write them down very clearly – you’re far more likely to make them happen – than merely thinking about your goals.

Basically, when you INK what you want on paper you LINK it more strongly in your mind.

And I do recommend writing your goals down on papernot just in your computer.

When you take the time to write down your goal on paper, you’re thinking more strongly about what it is you want – because it takes more conscious effort to write something down by hand – than it does to type it up.


  • Don’t just think about what you want to do in a given day, week, month, year — INK about it. Schedule EVERYTHING in INK. 

As Ola said: “Keep in mind the present you are constructing. It should be the future you want.”

  • Be ruthlessly specific about your Action Steps – writing down when you’re going to do them — for how long — with whom – where.

Planning in a very specific way helps prevent reverting to negative beliefs and procrastinatory behaviors.

  • Size does matter. Always turn those overwhelming big goals and big actions into “whelming” small goalettes and actionettes.

For example, turn those long term 6 to 12 month goals into smaller 3 month, 1 month, 1 week, 1 day goalettes. And turn any dreaded 1 -2 hour Action Steps into more tasty bite sized 15 to 30 minute Action Steps.

  • Chunk similar Action Steps together in a daily schedule – to save time.
  • Make all end goals measurable — so you can track progress — and not lie to yourself about how well you might/might not be doing.
  • Become conscious of your negative habits  – which can overwhelm your schedule — thereby taking away time and energy from your positive, forward-moving habits.
  • At the end of every day, think about your goal and constructively brainstorm new/smarter ways to bring yourself closer to it. Be flexible and open-minded about changing your plan for reaching your goal.

As Anthony Robbins said: “It’s in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped. Choose well.”

  • Regularly review and reward yourself for all progress – and show appreciation for all your efforts. 
  • Stay focused on what you want (your dream) – not on what you don’t want (fears and doubts)
