1. Make lists of all the possible things that you can do to take your wish forward. Include all the steps from tiny to monumental. Writing them down does not necessarily mean you have to do them all.
2. Find the one action step that jumps off the page at you. If nothing jumps off the page, choose the one that looks the easiest – the least intimidating.
3. Then do the first step you have selected.
4. Celebrate that you did something that started your process in motion.
5. Keep on going. Choose another step, and then another. Each accomplishment generates energy. Each time you generate energy with your success, use it to motivate yourself for the next challenge.
6. When you hit a snag, go back to the moment just prior to the snag. Ask yourself what happened in that sequence of moments. Then, either fix the snag by trying again, or step back and tackle something easier. It might simply be the wrong time to be tackling that specific step.
