If we want good things to happen to us, we have to stop judging others negatively for the good things they bring into their lives. Judging and criticizing others is such a silly energy drain. We will go out on a limb here and say that the majority of people who judge others negatively for their success don’t realize they do it, or they don’t realize there’s anything wrong with doing it.

"Define Your Dream"
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The first step to laying out your life plan and your dream existence is to clearly state your dream in three to five words. If you could achieve anything in life, what would that be? Don’t over analyze it. Just say it, even if you say it in your head only. It is your starting point.
Dreams are goals and achievements that we wish to attain. It is certainly not hard to have dreams, but it is tough to realize them. To make any dream a reality requires a carefully crafted plan and commitment to earn it. Yes, typically dreams are earned, not granted, and very rarely achieved by pure luck.
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others? ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."
First, you have to do an honest assessment of your potential to reach your goal. You have to look at your preparedness relative to your goal. Quite simply put, is the goal realistic and attainable for you? Literally, answering honestly if a goal is realistic and attainable for you are the first steps.
Preparedness to reach goals also depends on your willingness to recognize a long-term goal as a series of short-term goals. The goal is not so daunting when broken down. With any goal, breaking it down into smaller parts and rewarding yourself for small milestones along the way will help significantly to increase your chances of success.
"The Right Work"
"The time is always right to do what is right." ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
Regardless of the nature and size of your dream, you cannot expect to fulfill it overnight or without a lot of work. The path from here to there never follows a perfectly straight line, and it takes a lot of hard and often painful work, and smart course corrections, before you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.
But from what we know in motor learning, perfect practice is necessary. You need to practice properly, making sure what you do is intentional, correct, well-structured, and aligns with your end goal. Even then, you will suffer setbacks.
It’s all in the attitude. This go round, I decided it was going to be easy and exciting to get up early to write every day. I decided it’s not going to be difficult. I decided to get the sleep I need, and not be so dramatic and sacrificial about getting up early.
