Let me tell you something about most valuable currency in today’s world – time 🕛.
You’re probably running out of time, you never have enough of it etc but this post is about something else.
It is about waiting for the right time.
You probably had many situations where you promised to yourself that you’ll start/change something but were waiting for that perfect moment? 🤷🏼♀️ Some new dream that you wanted to start following as soon as something else happens? You kept putting and putting some dreams/plans away because „that’s not the right time yet”?
Well, the truth is the time will never be right/perfect but we just keep postponing some changes using „it’s not the right time” excuse because we are either scared of the changes or simply lazy 😉
So stop waiting, start acting! 💪
Maybe some other things will happen/change and in a year you’ll wish you have started today. You’ll never know so just do it now! 😉
When following dreams one of most important things is to set your goals right. Goals set right will help you UNDERSTAND the path you need to walk through more, it will be easier for you to PLAN your next steps, it will be easier for you to CONTROL if it’s going good, there will be LESS PRESSURE and it will be easier for you to BE PERSISTANT 😊
Goals need to set with a SMART method 🤓. That’s right, SMART:
S – Specific – Provide enough detail so that you know exactly what you should be doing. For example, stop setting goals such as „I need to lose 10kg in 3 months”. Make it more „I need to start eating more vegetables and workout 4 times a week” 🥦💪. This is more doable, you have more control over it (as you know exactly what you need to do) and there’s less pressure. Try sticking to it and just wait for results. Same with e.g. growing here on ig. Instead of setting a goal like „I need to get 1k new followers in a month” try „I need to post daily, take more colorful photos and interact with other users more”. Just do it and wait for the results 😉
M – Measurable – A measurable goal has an outcome that can be assessed as a hit or miss ✔❌. So e.g. you can easily check whether you worked out 4 times this week or posted everyday.
A – Achievable – An achievable goal has an outcome that is realistic given your current situation. Make sure you actually have the time 🕰 to workout 4 times a week or post daily. Don’t set such goal if you know you won’t make it.
R – Realistic – Start small. If you set your goal too high („I need to lose 10kg in a month” or „I need to gain 10k followers in a month”) there’s too big pressure and you will give up quickly if you won’t see results you’d want 🤔
T – Time Bound – Set a timeframe for the goal: „in three months”, „by six months”. Setting an end point for the goal gives you a clear target to achieve 🏁
Now that you know how to set your goal right let me know what are your goals!
Mine are: eat healthy + workout 3-4 times a week, post 5 times a week + take more colorful photos and read at least 60 pages a week 😊
Remember what did you use to dream about? What were your goals once? 🤔
Maybe you dreamed about a job you have now? Maybe you were trying to get a girl that is now your wife? Maybe you tried to buy that dream house that you call your home nowadays? Are you still happy about those things? Do you appreciate what you have? That you have what you dreamed of some time ago?
People tend to forget to be happy about what they have. To be grateful for where they are.
You got your dreams! You won! 🤗
Obviously once we get one thing we dream of another but don’t forget about the goals you’ve already achieved 🙏. Be happy about the job you got that you wanted so badly in the past, be happy about the girl of your dreams that is now by your side and be happy about every little dream you’ve accomplished!
Don’t take anything for granted ⚠️
Many of you say that nobody is real on Instagram. That people tend to publish only photos from their happy momments and talk only about highlights from their lives.
This might be true but I am different. 😅
I already showed you a picture of me looking unattractive some time ago (remember that all those instagram models pose in their finest clothes and perfect make up), I already talked to you about my bad days (cause we all have them!) and now I’m gonna talk to you about my last failures.🤪
Because we all fail from time to time and it’s OK!
Failures are good because we get a great lesson and learn from mistakes but also we appreciate success more after couple obstacles! 🤗
One of my latest failures was that I was supposed to lose 5kg in July. It was my goal and I started July with a diet and working out routine. But then i got busy and stressed (in the contrary to most people – when I’m stressed i EAT!). And…instead of losing weight I gained 1kg 😅 It might be a small failure but it still is a failure to me.
Another one – I told you about a new project that I’ve been working on lately. I told you that I’ll tell you by the end of July if it worked or not. Well…it didn’t. I wanted to go back to University and start studying psychology but I didn’t get a scholarship and I can’t afford it. So no new University degree for me. At least not this year…
And now biggest of my latest failures. As some of you know I published a book in February 📕. I’ve been writing it 1.5 year, looking for a publishing house next 3 years…Whole process lasted over 7 years and you know what…? I sold only about 400 copies… Out of 5500 copies we printed… Hardly no one buys it…It’s been heart-breaking for me as I really wanted this to work and this book to be read by plenty people but this happens I guess. It’s sad but it’s ok. I need to move on. It was still a big adventure and a dream coming true for me. I had plenty interviews and signing meetings so it was fun!
So next time you fail remember to keep smilling! 😉 We all fail from time to time. The key is to learn your lesson and not to give up! 😊
We all have bad days from time to time. Dwayne Johnson, Elon Musk, J.K. Rowling or whoevere your mentor is, have them too. And that’s ok. 👍
You don’t have to shine everyday, you’re not a Sun! 😉
If you’re feeling off, just take a day off. Have good sleep 🛌, meditate and calm yourself 🧘🏼♀️, watch a good movie 🎬 and relax 😇. Get yourself some new energy to get up the next day and get back on your track. 🤩
The worst thing you can do on a day like this is to keep pushing even though you don’t feel like it. Honestly. ⚠️
Why? Because you’ll only get discouraged and you’ll most likely give up on your dreams.👎 Days like this are most common reason why people give up. Because they push too hard, because it makes them not like the path they’re going, because it repels them from going forward.
You’re not feeling well? Don’t push it. Have a day off and get back to your dreams tomorrow.

I’d say that happiness is self-evolvment and making your dreams come true. Making dreams come true can be easy. What do you need?
- Good plan
- Time management
If you are highly motivated to reach your goal and will combine it with a determination to succeed, a good plan broke down to small steps, and you will be persistent with those steps, there is no way you wouldn’t succeed. But to make it all work and not to stress about your plan you need good time management as well. What do I do? When I have a new idea/new project to work on I take a piece of paper and break it down to small steps. I write all of the steps down and then i’ll mark them one by one in my calendar. It is crucial to take one step at a time and to only focus on 1 part. Otherwise you’ll be stressing out about the whole project and how far you still have got to go. Don’t think about the end line. Think about that 1 step. When you make a good plan all you need to do is take a look in your calendar in the morning and see what one small step you had planned for today and do that. For example, if you want to get a job you’ve been dreaming of, you should start with your resume. Make it step 1 to make sure it’s good, that you’ve got your strong skills featured. Then you should make a reserach about that certain company. See what they do, what they need, who do they need. Later on you could try networking. If you live close to their office you can go there during lunch time and maybe talk to someone as he/she is leaving for break. Another great way to network is LinkedIn. It’s a great platform where you can easily see who works where. After getting your resume ready, having your research and networking done you should write an email to the company with specific information that they want to hear (that’s why research what they need is very important). If you managed to get to know somebody from that company ask him/her if they can recommend you to the boss. After that call the office. Meet with somebody there. Etc. Etc. Just one step at a time.
If your goal is to lose 10kg try writing down how will you change your diet day by day (you should do it with a dietician though), what new excercises will you do to burn fat, to get more cardio. Etc. Etc.
I’m not gonna write down each scenario for you now, I just want to show you what you need to do. Make a plan. The more steps the better. Then just focus on it and be persistant.
You will probably think „Come on Pola, it’s not that easy”. Well it’s not gonna happen overnight, it probably won’t happen in a month. Some goals will need more steps and some less. But before you tell me it doesn’t work, juts try it out and see it for yourself. Maybe you’re wrong.
So what is your goal? What do you dream of? If you need some help with your plan don’t hesitate to ask me. I’m here for you. I do think I have good ideas and always try to think outside the box J
Determination. This is what’s most important when trying to succeed. If you do small step towards your goal but you keep on doing it everyday you WILL SUCCEED!
There’s just no other way.
I love that feeling when I lie in bed in the evening thinking that I did something towards my dream. I have been doing that since 2012 and I really did make my dreams come true but I’ll tell you all about it in some time as it’s still not 100% ready. Yes, it can take several years to get to your goal but if you’re persistant you’ll get there!
I believe in you! 😊
