Are you a dreamer? What are your dreams? Are they small, big, or too large and too complex?
Whether you have a dream or not, the dreams you have are there for a reason: to be realized as a part of fulfilling your life purpose. For many people, making their dreams a reality is something they don’t see possible or obtainable because they don’t see how it will ever come true. They just can’t see how taking time to plan out and make that dream realistic could ever work. Have patience! Although your dreams have not been fulfilled yet doesn’t mean they never will be, you can still make your dream a reality.
Of course, you can’t force dreams to happen, but you can take steps towards analyzing them. Maybe you’ve always had a dream to travel to Paris, have you done anything to make that dream become more real? Are you saving money weekly? Are you doing your research on reasonable places to stay? It all takes a planning strategy to obtain your dreams and if you want to move forward with making your dreams a reality, you need to take the first step into making it happen.
Overcoming your limiting beliefs-
The beliefs we end up holding about ourselves is what ends up framing our daily actions. If you believe you will never go anywhere in life, never have success, never feel the joy that happiness can bring, you will forever be stuck in that state of mind and that will hinder you from moving forward with making your dreams a reality.
Self-doubt is a constant and repetitive pattern we have all developed that makes us stay in the same spot for years, it riddles our bodies with such fear of stepping out of our comfort zone that we don’t believe we can every pursue a dream we have. I've got one question for you, do you want to continue living your life in a bubble or do you want to step out of it and become the person you’ve always envisioned yourself to be?
Get over your fears of failure and disappointment-
Failing is a part of life, the faster we fail the faster we learn. Never fear failure for its there to help you grow and failure brings you closer to your goal. Failure is a lesson and with that lesson you will learn not to make the same mistake next time.
Dreaming is vital to helping us realize our authentic selves and what we really want out of life. Using techniques like creating a vision board, planning, prepping, and strategizing what we want to do will bring us one step closer to making our dreams a reality. But ultimately, like Nike says, just do it! Stop holding yourself back and do what you’ve always wanted to do, you will be shocked to see how much you fall in love with your life once doing this for yourself.
