Three Simple Steps to Capture Your Dreams
Even though it can seem impossible, achieving your goals is completely attainable. People who fulfill their dreams are not better or brighter than anyone else; they have simply put into practice, knowingly or not, the attitudes, gestures, and propensities that orchestrate harmonious circumstances.
The truth lies in the present between the head and heart– for when we can carry both – an additional form is created to fuel our dreams and that of our family.
Now bears the hallmark of whoever we are – whatever we make of our present.
“Whatever the present moment contains, embrace it as if you had chosen it yourself.” – Eckhart Tolle
The direct path could be the fastest way to get to a point; however sometimes going around the curves, a detour, the present – creates the harmonious circumstances that allow us to have it all eventually. Focus on those detours with all your heart, and how it can help you to your dream. The essence is always in the curve. Mold that curve to obtain what you need in order to capture your dream.
1. Realize your skills and blessings.
In Victoria Moran’s book, How to create a Charmed Life, she suggests realizing the blessings that are in your life presently. What are you proud of? What can you do? What have you seen? Whom have you helped? What amazing human beings have chosen you to be their friend?
This is your working capital. Be aware of it – and grateful each day.
2. Be grateful of those around you.
Having a daily sense of gratitude creates energy for your dreams. This MindValley video illustrates that by completing a 90 second exercise of five people or things you are grateful in your personal and business life daily – your life will change. Every single second is an opportunity to change your life. Most of us know what we want but don’t take the action steps required to get it because of excuses or negativity. We say we want things to be different, but we mentally stop ourselves before we ever get going. Being grateful is the first step to achieving the positivity in your life – which fuels inspired action. Some examples of people or things that you could be grateful for are your husband, your best friend, your home, your job, your car, etc. Over time, you will realize you have much to be grateful for – and will find it hard to stop at five. Great job!
3. Assess your current mindset.
Next, think about your days the way they are now.
How much of time, effort, and attention go towards succeeding where it matters most: relationships, experiences, and aspirations? Putting emphasis here is not popular. It seems too real and too risky for the faint of heart. However, you create a dream life by doing things you are not doing now.
Eager to hear about your dreams!
