Set short-term goals. You can set a major goal for yourself, but in order to achieve that goal, you need to hit little milestones on the way to achieving it. Basically, you need a plan. For example, say you want to run a marathon this year. In order to work up to being able to run 26 miles (42 km), you need to start small. Set a goal to run a few miles every week, and slowly increase your distance each week. When we make plans to achieve our goals, God will help us accomplish them.

Simply have faith enough for the moment you are living in now. Trust in God, and out of small things will come that which is great.
