Many of us have dreams of how we would like our lives to look like. How many of us truly stay focused on making our dreams a reality? Most of us settle for mediocrity.
Many of us can’t even see a way out of our situation. Our dreams stay in the “wish” stage. We wish for a while only to go back to reality. What if our perceived reality was just that? Based entirely on our perception. What if the our true reality was our dream pleading to “come out” and be realized?
It is my opinion that more times than not, this is the case. The question is what are we going to do about? We have the choice of either dismissing our dreams as “wishful thinking” returning to our daily mundane routine where it is “safe” perhaps even comfortable, but are we happy? truly? or complacent and scared?
Initially, it can seem overwhelming. Where do you start? One thing is for certain. Anyone who ever made their mark in the world was a dreamer. The term has gotten a negative rap over the years. Anytime that one decides to step out of the box, their action can be faced with disapproval from others. It many cases, by those closest to us. In their minds, they might be see themselves talking sense to us. I used to get angry when others voiced skepticism concerning my ideas or aspirations. Although it is nice to receive support from others you care about, I realize now that if they don’t see eye to eye with me, it’s ok. It isn’t their dream. When the dream is manifested, THEN they will see it. Perhaps when they do, it will inspire them to give themselves the “permission” to realize their dreams. Most naysayers are such because they are afraid themselves whether they realize it or not. Many of us have been conditioned not to think outside the box and take the necessary risks to realize our dreams. It isn’t a surprise to me that so many pioneers in different areas discovered success through hardships. It can take a seemingly catastrophic event to wake us up. We are forced to dig deep in order discover power that we never knew we had. It can be challenging. Trust me, I’m in it, but I am more determined every day!! We must learn to dream with our eye’s open. What do I mean? Take consistent action to realize our dreams once we have determined what we really desire out of life. We envision our ideal life as already accomplished while at the same time utilizing our present day resources to manifest our ideal reality. I will discuss in detail , practical steps that I believe are most effective in actualizing your ideal lifestyle. Over the next several entries, I will explain each step. My desire is that you will find each suggestion useful for you in realizing your ideal lifestyle. Until then. Don’t stop dreaming.
