I don’t know about you, but I admire people who are successful. Growing up, I admired people who would talk about how they spent their holidays in Dubai and other outside countries.
These schoolmates of mine came from families that had money, and lots of it.
As a young person, I am sure you also desire to have such a life, and to be extremely successful. But the question that begs is: How will you get there? What will you do to ensure that you stay ahead of your peers in order to enjoy the niceties of life?
The CEO of Fatboy Animations, the guy behind Faiba Adverts is only 29 years old and he is already a Millionaire.
When asked to give advice to young people, Mike says that youths should stop spending their time in alcohol, weed, parties and other time wasters, but to focus on their goals and where they want to be in the near future.
Today, I am going to share with you 5 things you should do in order to achieve all your dreams. Let’s go.
How To Achieve All Your Dreams In 5 Ways
1. Have a vision
It is written in the Bible that people perish because of lack of vision. That said you must have a vision for your life.
Where would you like to be by the end of the year
?Are you planning to go back to school in order to get a Degree and become a doctor?

2. Make a plan
If let’s say you would like to start your own business, you need to come up with a plan. As you come up with a plan, answer these questions:
1. Where are you going to get capital to start?
2. Who are you going to talk to in order to get your business on the ground?
3. Where is it going to be located?
4. What is your target market?
5. What is your business about?
A plan will help you come up with an idea of the direction in which your business should take and how you are going to get there.
3. Create a routine
Who you are today is as a result of your patterns and habits. Routine helps you remain grounded and firm, and it also builds your character.
When it comes to achieving your dreams, you must develop good habits that are going to bring you closer to them.
Say for instance you want to graduate with a first class honours. You must develop a routine of studying daily and effectively in order to pass all your exams and attain that first class.
If you would like to stop drinking alcohol or smoking, you must develop good habits that include spending time doing a hobby, to replace the bad habits.
All successful people have good routines that have contributed greatly to their success and wealth.
4. Be consistent.
Consistency means that you stick to the plan. The Bible talks about how a double minded person should not expect to receive anything from God.
The same applies when it comes to your dreams. Sure, they can change over time, but you have to remain consistent about them if they are to come true.
5. Refuse to give up
Terry Serville Foy, a motivational speaker talks about how we as human beings, are constantly being stretched in order to achieve our maximum potential.
And that is very true. The journey to achieving your dreams is not going to be an easy one. In fact, you are going to be stretched so much that you might want to give up.
The secret however is to remain firm and focused on the prize that lies ahead.
Giving up is for the weak. You must fight for your dreams with all you’ve got.
That, my dear friends is the only way we can achieve all our dreams and be successful.
