Live Your Dream

August 7, 2012

Do you have a secret passion to do something different in your life?  Do you find your current career boring or that it is less satisfying than it used to be?  In these tough economic times, it can be hard to even consider change when we are constantly being bombarded with the bad news of the day including unemployment, poverty, and scarcity.  My teenage kids use an acronym that they heard in a song, “YOLO!”  It means you only live once.  What do you want to do? What are you truly passionate about?  Is there something you can do today to begin moving toward the life you have always imagined?  Some success strategies that have worked for me that you can practice to create your amazing life are;

  • Write down your dreams and specific short and long-term goals to reach them
  • Review your goals daily and put them somewhere you will see them often
  • Give yourself at least 30 minutes each morning to meditate about what is important to you and to plan your new life
  • Choose one daily action that supports your dream and DO IT!
  • Praise yourself for taking positive action
  • Do some sort of physical exercise each day to increase your energy.  Exercising is also a great way to stimulate your brain and get new ideas
  • Stay away from behavior that makes you feel bad about yourself such as laziness, eating junk-food, or exposing yourself to a bunch of negativity
  • Take a risk!  If it is a new job you want and you see a great opportunity, go for it!  Don’t let your fear hold you back from trying something new.

Your life is yours to mold and shape.  Your external circumstances today (your life) are the result of the action you have taken in the past If you don’t like your life, change it and live your dream!  When I am old, I want to be able to look back on my life and know that I followed my dreams and lived well. I want to experience the freedom that comes with building something wonderful, something I believe in, something we are all capable of doing should we choose to.  This is what I want to model for my friends, my family, and the world and the legacy I want to leave for my children.  My courage to be who I know I am capable of being, to let my very soul shine through, is much stronger than my fear of the unknown.  Today I can take small daily actions to lead me to the life of my dreams!  If I can do it, you can do it too!  Within us all is a sleeping giant.  No regrets and remember……….Optimists Rock!
