Young People: How to Go from a Dreamer to a Doer (Achiever) By Javnyuy Joybert

Is good to have dreams as a young person, I always say it will cost you nothing to dream but it will cost you everything not to dream but it will be costlier if you stay as a dreamer. Every young person in Africa with a sound mindset have something he/she want to achieve in life but unfortunately many dreams have just ended up as dreams.

As young people, we should not be stuck in the pattern of dreaming. To go from a dreamer to a doer, note the following

 

  1. Write down goals with deadline

Any a young African without goals will only end up dreaming and goals without the self-discipline to meet the deadline will only end up as dreams. To be a doer, set goals, give them deadline and go for them with high determination

 

  1. Follow passion

Doers follow their passion, doers don’t venture into things they are not passionate about. Why? Because doers know that their passion is that thing that will drive them forward when they suffer setback. Remember this passion keep doers going when the money is not coming. “Passion is what get you started and it is what will keep you going”

  1. Action

Doers take immediate actions while dreamers do a lot of long planning. This single habit of acting is what differentiate great dreamers from great doers (achievers)

 

  1. Right Peers (friends)

Doers surround themselves with doers (achievers) as the popular saying goes “Birds of a feather certainly flock together”. When you are around doers they highly inspire you. Surround yourself with the best & brightest people around your quarter, neighborhood, workplace, school, city

 

  1. Doers seek for help.

Carefully look at people who have achieved big, they either had great mentors, had a powerful support network of friends. You can not achieve any great thing by yourself. Remember, asking for help does not mean you are weak. it means you are a potential great man.

  1. Doers Don’t give up

I made a post on Facebook two days ago, and said “You want to be an entrepreneur abi? be ready for empty pockets and failures”. Doers expect roadblocks, challenges, difficulties but they keep on going without getting discourage.

 

  1. Learn new skills

I always say “The gap between where you are now & where you want to be in the future is caused by a lack of knowledge, wisdom & skill” So, one of the things holding young people in Africa (dreamers) is their lack of knowledge & skills. Do everything you can to acquire skills. Attend workshops, attend skills development programs, take online courses (Visit www.celbmdafrica.org click on courses).

 

Stop being a dreamer and start being a doer and we will see at the top.

    Most young people are afraid to sacrifice. They are afraid to think out of the box and explore new avenues. As such, they are limited and find it difficult to identify what works best for them. The magic only occurs when we write down plans and take action. The magic occurs when we develop and enhance our skills.

    The magic occurs when learn from the experiences of others.
    The time for magic is now!

    Great work Joybert. It’s so great a write up. Number 3 is just what many of us lack in; taking action. I really wish people see the need of attending capacity building seminars. Once again it’s a great work Mr Javnyuy Joybert. More grace
