There’s so much to be grateful for, isn’t it? You have a job that pays the bills, a roof over your head, food on the table, family and friends who love you, etc. What more could you ask of life? The answer is: as much as you want! You have a good life, yes, but is this your dream life? The only way to know is to take a step back and listen to your heart. So far, it’s likely you’ve only been listening to your mind.
That’s all fine and great, but sometimes our minds can trick us into believing we’re not good enough to chase our dreams and create the life we truly want for ourselves. We’ve been conditioned that way; so we’re often scared of straying from the path into the unknown and begin working towards our dreams. Well, I’m here to tell you something important: you are capable and you are worthy of creating the life of your dreams. So why not start today?!
1. Define Your Vision
The first thing you want to do is define your vision. What are your dreams? Sit down for 30 to 45 minutes and look inward. I recommend you get a journal and start writing about your dreams, goals, and desires, no matter how big or small they may be. Write them all down and give yourself the time to focus only on what you want from life.
2. Start Visualizing
We’ve been taught to believe that visualization is a waste of time, it’s daydreaming and we could use that time more productively. But visualization is never a waste of time! Take a moment to think of the dream you are most passionate about from the list you created, close your eyes, and visualize yourself in that scenario. You already made it, you’re there. How does it feel? What does it look like? Lose yourself in the vision and think of nothing else for 5 minutes. When you do, you’ll realize how helpful visualization really is.
3. Take the First Step
Now that you know what you want and you’ve created such a complete vision for yourself, the only thing left to do is take action. Take the first step, then the second, and the third, and don’t stop until you’ve reached your goals. There will be hurdles and you may even make a few mistakes along the way, but don’t stop. Lost time is something we can never get back, so we need to make the most of it and start now!
Yes, it can be intimidating to get up and start changing your life. It means you have to step outside your comfort zone, which is something we’ve been taught to avoid. However, taking the step is worth it because, at the end of the road, you’ll have the life of your dreams. What could be better than that? So, get yourself ready and take action. Be brave and the universe will reward you!
