What kind of dreams do you have?
- Traveling to far off lands?
- Owning a prestigious home on a mountain in Utah?
- A garage full of antique automobiles?
What is holding you back from living your dreams?
The most common answer is money but even people who have the money are not living their dreams.
While I have not “perfected” the dream living lifestyle, I do believe I have discovered some essentials. I am doing the things I love to do and often I feel as if I am living within my dreams. I also believe I can help you do the same.
“Don’t give up on your dreams, or your dreams will give up on you.” John Wooden
Keep in mind that this counts only for good dreams… Nightmares don’t count. If your dreams are nightmares, the first step is deleting the negatives in your life. A positive mindset and surrounding yourself with positive people and positive energy will “kill” the nightmares and enliven good and healthy dreams.
Here are 4 tips for achieving and living your dreams.
“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.” Anatole France
Living Your Dreams Tip #1: Allow Yourself To Dream
Dreams are not just something that comes when you lay your head on the pillow. Dreams are anytime, anywhere and if you are always shutting those dreams down, how can you achieve and live them?
So do yourself a favor… Allow your mind to wander; allow it to dream. Yes, there are times when daydreaming is not proper (a meeting with investors or things similar), but you do need to set aside time to be alone with just you and your dreams.
Now dive in and see what your dream really wants for you. Small or big, you need to know what it is that your dream says you want.
“Don’t let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big.” Unknown
Living Your Dreams Tip #2: What Are The Potential Obstacles?
Now that you know the dream… What you truly want to achieve… It is time to list out the potential obstacles that could keep you from realizing your dream.
- Certain people?
Notice! Every obstacle I listed here can be overcome. You CAN get more money. People can be released or you CAN stay clear of them. You CAN change your location.
“You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands – your own.” Mark Victor Hansen
Living Your Dreams Tip #3: Set The Wheels In Motion
Now that you have listed the obstacles, it is time to determine how to overcome each obstacle.
Wise investing… Using your talents and creativity can get you more money. But you also need to use wisdom in reinvesting and saving that money toward your dream.
Those people who are telling you you can’t are the same people you need to either release or set straight. I say this with a careful means as maybe that person is a spouse, child or other family member. Releasing them is probably not an option or even staying clear of them.
So maybe you just need to have a hard talk with that person and explain that you CAN, WILL and they can either support you or stay out of the way. When any negative comes from them, you just go into your own positive zone you have built.
It isn’t easy, but I know you CAN do it.
You can move your location and you can make other moves to overcome the obstacles. With a plan of action, start the wheels spinning toward dream achievement.
“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.” Mahatma Gandhi
Living Your Dreams Tip #4: Buy It, Do It, Live It
Here is where the majority of people fail… They are so close but they just stop.
The wheels have been moving, they have overcome the obstacles but fear will not let them live the dream.
“But I can’t leave now because….”
“What will people think if I buy that?”
On and on, excuses…
It’s your dream, feel it, live it, do it, buy it!
