Many people consider the “American Dream” to follow a specific plan. First, you graduate from school, continue on to get your degree, obtain your dream career, then start your family. If there’s one thing that I’ve learned about success, however, it’s that it is not “one size fits all”. There are many of us that have chosen to either complete these steps out of order or ditch the plan altogether! I am living proof that this is possible! As a Mom of three, I am still continuing my degree and running a business while caring for my girls. In order to succeed, however, you must be intentional about your goals and plans. Here are a few tips to help you “Be Bold” in the pursuit of your dreams.
No dream is too big, so don’t limit yourself when deciding what you’d like to accomplish. The thing is, a dream is only a dream until you start the planning phase. Don’t allow your dream to live in your head. Instead, write it down on a piece of paper. Create a vision board to help you visualize what you would like to do, and what it will take to get there. This part requires researching what it take to achieve your goals, so you have a good idea of what you’ll need to do.
Set Smart Goals
Smart goals are important in helping you transition your dream to an actionable plan. Setting both long and short term goals for your dream will help ensure long-term success.
Once you have your plans in place, know what it will require achieving your dreams, and you’ve determined your long and short term goals… it’s time to start doing. This is the part where most of stall and find excuses not to go forward. Don’t do that! Take that first step, and the others will follow.
Of all the tips shared above, this may very well be the most important. It’s important that you network and share your dreams and aspirations with others. It can be tempting to just hide away behind closed doors working on your master plan, but sharing your dreams and goals with others will both hold you accountable and give you inspiration.
When you look good, you feel more confident. Choose “smart” clothing that you feel good in, and you’ll be more confident interacting with people face to face. Another tip is to keep fresh breath at all times, so you’ll never be caught off guard during an impromptu networking opportunity! Add Listerine Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouthwash to your daily hygiene regimen, since it kills 99.9% of bad breath germs and germs that lead to gum disease (in lab studies). It also provides 24-hour germ protection when you use it twice daily, which is refreshing in itself. Listerine Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouthwash is the only nationally branded antimicrobial mouthwash to receive the ADA Seal of Acceptance for fighting plaque and gingivitis!
You’ll also want to grab some Listerine PocketPaks as well. They freshen breath on the go and are great to use after you’ve had a cup of coffee or grabbed a bite to eat at a networking event. They dissolve instantly, and kill 99.9% of odor-causing bacteria in 30 seconds!

Whatever your goal is, and no matter the place you are in life… you can achieve it! Be Bold, got forth and conquer!
