Making Your Dreams Come True

You hear it all the time: Follow your dream. Dreams do come true! The way people talk about living the dream seems as if it’s a must-have for everyone. It’s a rather bold statement, but how do you go about bringing your dream to light?

Below are some top tips may help you achieve your dreams:

Allow Yourself to Dream

We stop dreaming because at some point in our life, we were told that the dream we had was unrealistic. And after hearing it enough times, you tend to start believing in it too. A dream that once felt so good to think about and seemed so possible to achieve suddenly left you feeling silly for ever having it. So, you did the only thing you could do – packed your dreams safely away, not to be shared again.

Just because your dream is packed away for safe keeping doesn’t mean it no longer exists. In fact, it might just be the thing that keeps on trying to get your attention. If you’ve ever had a notion that there was more to life, listen up. Your dream is talking!

How can you gently coax your dream back into the light? You can ask yourself: If money was no object, and failure was not a concern, what would I do with my life?

You’ll get more practical as you get older. But when you’re trying to unleash a dream, there’s no room for practicality. Asking the question above will give you free rein to dream away. There will be plenty of opportunities for realistic matters down the road. For now, give yourself permission to once again dream. When you do, dream big!

Don’t Judge Your Dream

There is no scale on which dreams are measured. This means that one dream is no better or worse than another. Your dream is your dream.

For instance, you’ve always wanted to study the life and habitat of iguanas since you were young. Perhaps your dream is exactly what you need to do to feel your best and to live a life that you consider as meaningful.

There’s a reason you have the dream you have. In the grand scheme of things, your dream serves a purpose to all life on this earth. If you don’t live your dream, the rest of us are missing out. Don’t judge your dream. Rather, embrace it. It’s yours for a reason.

Practice Patience

Dreams take time to unfold, especially when you haven’t allowed yourself to dream for awhile. Some people know their dream from an early age. For the rest of us, we need to remain open and curious as to what our dream is. Listen to your gut, heart, and soul. Trust they have the answers you seek.

Tips on Making Your Dreams Come True - Patience

It may take time to bring your dream to light, but it’ll be worth the wait. Allow yourself to dream, don’t’ judge the dream you have, and practice patience. These are some actions that you can take today to bring your dream to light and make them closer to reality.

There is a giant asleep within every man. When that giant awakes, miracles happen.

It’s Never Too Late

Do you have dreams that have never been realized? Do you feel like it’s too late to act on them? Well….maybe it’s not! If you think you’re too old to plan for the future, then read the story of Kentucky Fried Chicken. In his 60’s, Colonel Harland Sanders built KFC from the ground up to become what it is today – a world-famous fast food franchise.

It's Never Too Late - Dreams

The pursuit of dreams has long been a powerful force in restoring hope in the face of impossible odds. Its power often comes when we consider that impossible odds might sometimes be self-imposed. Such as self-imposed odds make us sigh with dismay – too old or too late. For dreamers and visionaries, however, they will always say, Not so!

Get Started On Your Goals

There are five important, yet simple steps to follow, for seemingly impossible goals to be achieved.

Step One

It's Never Too Late - Write Down Your Plans

Spend some quiet time and write down exactly what the change or changes will be and why you want them, this is the first crucial step towards achieving goals. At this stage, write only what it is you’d like to achieve and why. The ‘how’s’ and ‘when’s’ can come later.

Step Two

This step is very important as well, and it has everything to do with you accessing a state of inner peace. Achievement of your goal requires having peace through a quiet mind and inner calmness regardless of the chaos around you and how long this chaos reigns. When you have this peace, you’ll have greater clarity, your creative self will make itself known, you’ll gain foresight into how you will achieve your outcome, and negativity will have minimal impact.

It's Never Too Late - Focus

Step Three

This step is about gifting yourself with a fresh outlook on life. Looking at things in a totally different way and from a new angle will give you a more global perspective revealing greater possibilities and may be achieved by:

  • Asking what is important to you. Each time you receive an answer, continue by asking why that answer is important. When you can go no further, ask yourself how you can change this issue. This may sound a bit strange, but it works.
  • Transformational Coaching.
  • Understanding your motivation or lack of motivation. Once you’ve gained an understanding of you, you’re in a position to be proactive in making the necessary changes towards achieving your goal.
  • Reading autobiographies of how successful people did it.

Step Four

By now, you know exactly what you want. You can step into profound inner peace at will, have picked up great self-help and self-healing tools, eliminated limiting beliefs, and worked out your values. Now, it’s time to finally pinpoint exactly how you’re going to go about achieving your goal.

Step Five

This last step is the calculation of when your outcome will finally happen. If you’ve followed the previous steps, you’ll be able to determine that moment when you have finally reached the pot at the end of your rainbow. Examples:

  • Calculate the time it takes to complete your training courses or higher education.
  • Investment portfolio goals as discussed with your investment adviser.
  • Discuss with your transformational coach how many sessions and home-play will be required for you to achieve your goal.
  • Factor in the time it takes for people to get to know you if you’re selling a product. Speak with a marketing professional or someone in the know first.
  • It’s important to be realistic about time frames. Sometimes, our greatest plans will go awry and will take much longer than expected. Sometimes, incidents will happen and be out of control.

It’s never too late. Anyone can achieve goals through inner peace, perseverance, patience, flexibility, and sometimes, through viewing situations from an entirely different angle.
