Day 123: Greg S. Reid – A Dream with a Date

A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true. -Greg S. Reid

Success has formula.

Dream + Plan + Deadline + Action = Success

The trouble for most people is that 4th element: action.

Sure, you’ll build a plan and you’ll even set a deadline or two but without action, it’s all meaningless.

Deadlines will come and go while you lay on the sandy beaches of Someday Island wishing your life away.

Here’s the problem…

Someday Island doesn’t exist. It’s a myth perpetuated by those who lie to themselves and say they will do this “some day.”

They won’t. Deep down they know it, which is why they lie to themselves.

You’re different.

You know Someday Island is a fantasy. So is your published book if you allow it to live there.

The only way your dream of writing and publishing a book can come true is if you make a plan, work the plan and keep working the plan until you succeed.
