"Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.."

-Tom Landry

Balancing between one's personal goals and the obligations of single parenthood seems impossible. We may take aside our dreams to fulfill our children’s needs.

However, there are countless success stories of single mothers overcoming obstacles, shattering boundaries, and resolutely pursuing their aspirations. If they can do it, so can you!

Today I share with you five steps to enable you to map out your aspirations and start transforming them into reality.

Intentional Action:  5 Practical Steps for Single Mums to Make Aspirations a Reality

Step 1: Reflect and Clarify Your Intentions 

Pause for a moment and give yourself time to reflect on your desires, core values, passions, and long-term aspirations. These are the characteristics that define who you are. Have you imagined yourself pursuing a career, no matter how difficult it is, and found yourself smiling? It’s because you enjoy what you do! It’s not just about making money. If you do what you love, money will follow. Consider what makes you excited to wake up every morning, what gives you a sense of purpose. Is this baking pastry, helping charitable institutions, or creating your vlog? Do it! Do what makes you happy.


Step 2: Visualize Your Ideal Outcome


They say that visualization is a powerful tool for achieving personal goals. Visualizing your goals as already attained helps boost motivation and focus. Imagine yourself reaping the benefits of your hard work: your children are happy, you are living a balanced life, and you are pursuing the career you have always wanted. Believe that these visualizations are your reality and soon, they will be.


Step 3: Break Your Intention Down 

Dividing your overall goal into smaller, more achievable activities or steps makes it more feasible, realistic, and less intimidating. It improves your ability to stay organized, stay focused, and ultimately increases your chances of success. For example, if you wish to establish a pastry business, you would list the necessary steps, conduct market research, contact suppliers, and find a location, draw up a budget. By doing so, the goal feels more attainable, reducing overwhelm and increasing clarity on what needs to be done to achieve it.


Step 4: Cultivate Positive Emotions Around Your Intention 


A cheerful outlook lights up the way.  Have faith in your ability to succeed and fill your mind with optimism, gratitude, and enthusiasm as you pursue your goals. To increase your motivation and resilience and make it easier to work for your goals, always smile, project confidence, embrace the adventure, and feel joy in your heart.



Step 5: Stay Flexible and Adaptable 

Success is greatly influenced by one's ability to adapt to new circumstances, obstacles, or changes with ease and a positive outlook. This quality is important because it enables people to better navigate uncertainty and seize opportunities. Be prepared to thrive in an ever-changing world, but never forget your objectives and the reasons you set out on this adventure.



After identifying the steps, implement them in your daily routine. Examine your actions and assess your life. You will come to understand this as you move through life, so there's no need to be overwhelmed by it. Life is not a series of easy moments, and this does not guarantee that your path will be easy. But everything will fall into place if you have the correct mindset, focus, and are resilient. As they say, the harder the journey, the sweeter the reward. With your mind and heart focused on the right things, you can run the house, and figure out how to achieve your dreams, one step at a time.

Enjoy, Mum! Remember success is a roadmap of adventure and journey.
