Do you have dreams for yourself? Do you believe in your dreams? Do you believe that if you follow your dreams it will come true?
1.) Ask yourself this question.
What do I want to do right NOW, so that I don’t regret NOT doing it a year from now? I didn’t want to get to the end of my life and say, “what if…?”You can only regret the chances you don’t take.
2.) What are MY hopes, dreams, goals and aspirations?
Never let anyone tell you that your dreams are silly or unimportant. Never let anyone else define your dreams for you. Make things happen for yourself. No one know what is best for you but you.
3.) Know your worth as an individual.
…and never let anyone take that from you. As a kid, my teachers told me that I wasn’t good enough and that I didn’t have any real talent. Those words stuck with me. It wasn’t until I finally realized that I realized my worth(no personal info.) And I was able to overcome those feelings of worthlessness.
4.) Know your risk tolerance.
How much are you willing and able to risk to achieve your dreams? How much support—emotional and material—do you have from your family and friends? more about the important question.
5.) Tell other people what your dreams/goals are — what you want to achieve?
…and ask them to hold you accountable for achieving them. You never know who may hold the key that opens the door leading right into your dream. Or who may know a person who knows a person….
6.) If something speaks to your heart, don’t hold back…JUMP!
Step out on faith—and I mean deep water faith!
7.) Progress, not perfection.
This is the mantra I live by. You don’t have to do it right the first time. Striving for perfection is the quickest way to sabotage achieving your dreams. What happens is that you don’t do it perfectly the first time, and you give up, thinking that you can’t do it. Keep making steady progress toward your goal (even if it is slow going!), and before you know it, you will be there.
8.) Identify what you are most passionate about.
What excites you so much that you can’t wait to jump out of bed in the morning to get started? Pursue that with a passion.
9.) Making your dreams happen is about using your fears and frustrations as fuel for transformation.
Living successfully requires risk and courage. I know this first hand. Don’t be afraid to fail. If Plan A doesn’t work out, go to Plan B…and Plan C. You will find a way to make your dreams come true.
10.) Take time for yourself every day.
Even if you can spare just 30 minutes from your busy schedule, do something every day that is soul satisfying. Spend time meditating and visualizing yourself in the middle of your dream life.
Have the courage to follow your heart. Your heart will never steer you in the wrong direction. It is through your heart that the universe speaks to you. And I guarantee that you WILL find your dream in that place where your mind meets your heart and your soul.
