The ability to see something empowers you to be able to reach it. But because our dreams and goals are not tangible just yet, it is important to create a visual representation of them to serve us like a GPS. Life can very easily re-direct you. But if you have a GPS you can refer to often, it'll help you stay on track.
Don't lose sight of your dreams so that you can take a step each day to accomplish them. Write them down, create a vision board, whatever it takes to stay focused.
