We will continue our discussion of Achievement in our lessons this week. We’ll be talking together about taking action on our dreams and plans is one of the roots of Achievement. Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:
“To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” — Anatole France (Author)
Imagine three seagulls sitting on a fence. One decides to fly away. How many seagulls are left on the fence? There are still three. You see, the one who decided to fly away didn’t do anything more than make a decision. He never actually took action, spread his wings, and flew away. If we want to achieve something, we can dream and plan it — but until we actually do it, we haven’t really accomplished anything. Achievement comes from taking our dreams, and our plans, and taking action on them to make them happen in the real world.
1) What is something you would really like to achieve?
2) What do you think is the best way to actually make your achievement happen?
3) What is the first thing you should do to get started?
