- First, a good attitude is critical. You've gotta believe in yourself, and use positive words to make other people believe in you, too. Say things like, "I can do that" and "I'll make it happen" instead of "I can't" or "I'm always unlucky!" When everyone knows how much faith you have in yourself, they'll see you in a different light, too. And if you need a positive role model, look no further than your dog. Chances are they've never caught a squirrel, but any time one comes by, they always give it their best shot.
- You can also achieve your dreams by having an alternate route planned. For instance, if you ask for a promotion and the boss says no. Find another route to that job. Ask for new responsibilities, or take a class in that field. That way, when you ask again, you can prove that you deserve a promotion. It's just like traveling. If the highway is jammed, you'd take an alternate route, right? So find a way to get to your goal even if you hit a roadblock.
- And finally, be realistic. If you're 5 feet tall, your dream of being an NBA star is probably not gonna happen. But you can still be involved in basketball, whether you coach a kid's team or work in a pro team's front office.
