We are about half way through the Build A Blog Workshop. So I wanted to write this article about keeping your eye on the prize to help keep you motivated.

Part of building a blog and becoming a great blogger is setting goals and dreaming big.

Everyone at one time or another, has dreamed of being somebody famous. Who hasn't fantasized about being a big movie star or musician? And I know we've all dreamed about winning the lottery or somehow striking it rich?

You might be dreaming right now, maybe your dreaming of becoming a "Pro-Blogger" and quitting your day job. However, this dream might be closer than you think. 

Most people have big plans and dreams for their future. Sadly for most of us, our plans and dreams never become reality. Instead of getting to experience these exciting adventures in life, we get caught up in our boring 9 to 5 jobs and paying taxes, we never really take those crucial steps to make our dreams happen.

Life would be so much better, if only we could learn to aim higher. The biggest reason that most people can never make their dreams come true, is that we have trained ourselves to think, I can't do this, That's impossible, No one could do that.

If you limit yourself with self-doubt, you will never be able to break past what you believe to be impossible. But, if you reach too far up into the clouds without working toward your goal, you will find yourself hanging on to an impossible dream. Which I think is even worse!

You see the focus here is not to limit yourself. You want to aim high and start working towards that goal little by little. However, it also is unwise to set a goal that is truly unrealistic.

Just think, if you had told someone one-hundred years ago that you could send mail (email) from here to the other side of the world in a few seconds, they would say you were crazy. But, through desire and perseverance, these impossible dreams are now a reality of our everyday lives.

If you were to ask any "Pro-Blogger" out there about how they got to where they are today, they would tell you hard work, discipline, and a lot of sleepless nights behind a computer screen.

So keep on dreaming! Don't get wrapped up in your own perceived limitations. Think big and work hard to reach those goals. As you get closer to reaching your blogging dreams each day, you will see that your dream is almost a reality.

If it is your dream to make a living as a Pro-Blogger, I say go for it. Don't let anyone try to stop you, because to do this you will have to be determined. In the beginning you're not going to see a lot of pay-off, but that can't stop you, keep working at it and you will be glad you did.

I hope this helps to keep you motivated throughout the rest of the "Build A Blog Workshop". Make sure to stop by tomorrow for more great suggestions about building your blog. Until then keep working smart and good luck!
