1. Believe that there will always be a possible path.
What you think is attainable is just a function of what you know at the moment. Once you start your pursuit you will learn a lot especially if you triangulate with others. Paths that you had never seen will become clearer.
2. Create great expectations
Great expectation create greater capabilities.
If you limit your goals to what you know you can achieve, you are setting the bar too low.
3. Have flexibility and self accountability.
Flexibility is accepting and adjusting to reality. It is essential as it teachers one to accept reality. Self accountability on the other hand puts pressure on self. It views non achievement as personal responsibility and avoids blaming others for failure.
