3 Steps to Creating the Life of Your Dreams
Whatever you’re doing right now, stop, slow down and just be. Take a deep breath, suck every last bit of air into your lungs, hold it there, just one second longer…and release. Now, how do you feel? Be honest, there’s no right or wrong answer. Just sense whatever comes to the surface and before we get any deeper into what I’m about to share with you, I have one request: be open. If you apply what I’m about to tell you, you can potentially change your life forever. I know I have, so at the very least open your mind to the possibility and let’s begin to unravel the secrets to achieving the life of your dreams.
Step 1: Start with your vision
What do you want most in life? This is a loaded question, I get that, but it is amongst the most important questions that you can answer. If you have a hard time thinking about what you want with the upcoming week, let alone life in general, try taking yourself back a couple of years to the days when you were young and imaginative, when dreaming was encouraged and nothing was out of reach. The goal is to discover your burning desire and have a crystal clear vision of what your ideal life looks like. What does it taste like, feel like, where are you, who are you with, why is this so important to you? See, crystal clear.
Step 2: Set your intention
Call it what you want - the universe, karma, God, spirit – naming this unexplainable power is not important. What is important is recognizing its existence and understanding that in order to achieve your vision you have to let you intention be known in more ways than one. Write it down, read it first thing in the morning and right before bed, plaster neon sticky notes all over your house, carry it in your pocket, scream it from the rooftops. I’m not kidding! Your intention is going to be the key to attracting what you desire most. Like attracts like, so focus on what you desire, not what you fear.
Step 3: Take massive action
Good things come to those who work and nothing of any worth is going to come easy. Rather than spending days, months and even years getting ready to get ready, start moving now. Short term sacrifice can yield long term benefit, so take action, meditate, journal, exercise and strengthen your toolbox. Grow your mind, body and spirit and never give up. Most importantly, remember, the only way to fail is to quit.
Don’t quit your daydream. Build it.
