My Dream Story
When I was a little kid, I always had this huge ambition. It seemed like the biggest thing in my life, and it was something that would never go away. Every day I would be thinking about how to make something amazing out of my life and how to use all the potential that I could see around me.
Where this came from? I have no idea. I was in an orphanage and had never had a role model who showed me life was meant to be bigger.
I used to stay up late at night dreaming about what kind of career or adventure I wanted for myself and imagining all sorts of things that could happen if only I were brave enough to take a chance on them; again, I had this pure will of potential.
As time went on, those dreams became more distant as each year passed by without me doing anything concrete to make them come true. In fact, it wasn’t until I was in my late 30s that my will became so strong I had to do something about it.
I knew if I wanted to create something before life passed me by, I had to figure out what that dream was and focus like I never focused before. The journey was long and hard, but eventually, after much dedication and effort, I had a dream worth living and fighting for!
Have you ever thought about what makes you truly happy? What ignites a fire in your belly? Well, let me tell you about my dream. It’s simple, really. I want to wake up every morning with excitement and purpose, knowing I’m doing something I’m passionate about. I want to spend my days creating, whether it’s writing, drawing, or building something with my own two hands. I want to travel, meet new people, and experience different cultures. And most importantly, I want to live a life full of love, laughter, and adventure. Don’t be afraid to dream big because anything is possible with a little bit of enthusiasm and hard work.
What’s your dream?
Want to give your vision a jumpstart? Write down your goals and use these questions to speed up the delivery of your dream.
What’s your highest priority in this lifetime?
What’s most important for you to experience, explore or embrace this time? Until you answer this question, your life goals will be off-purpose. Unaligned with your inner passion, your intentions will lack the power to attract the people and situations necessary to become a reality.
Get clued into your true joy. What activities did you enjoy as a child? What are your hobbies now? When your goals are aligned with your soul, synchronicity kicks in to guide you to your target.
Is this your dream or someone else’s?
Are your goals your choice or what others think you should strive for? Do you want to look back in your old age and wish you had followed your passion? Will you regret having “played it safe?”
Is it selfish to go after your own dream? What joy can you give others if you haven’t given it to yourself first?
Are you settling for less than?
Are you resigned to accepting less than your full share of love, health, and success this lifetime? Have you compromised and sacrificed your dream?
Anything short of living your true passions will never make you happy.
What will you feel like when you reach your dream?
Personal passion fuels a vision. Dive into the thrill and exhilaration of the feeling of living your dream.
The Hawaiian Kahuna says, “Where your creative attention flows, so flows your life.”
What steps can you take today toward your dream?
Don’t defer your dream. Set up supports and systems around you to instantly translate your intentions into action. Jump on every opportunity that is in line with your purpose and vision.
Are there smaller projects that lead to your larger dream? If the dream is to run a marathon, train for a local fun run first. And find a way to measure your progress. Track those little wins by writing in a journal or telling a friend.
Are you telling yourself: “I can’t have my dream?”
Most people don’t believe they can live their dream. Either their belief system has them believing they can’t make a living doing what they love, or they feel they don’t deserve their dream. To avoid the pain of feeling they can’t have their dream, people often keep their dream so buried they can’t remember they ever had a dream.
Everyone has a dream! And everyone is destined to fulfill that purpose. Why wait? Pursuing your dreams is not just a fancy thought. It’s a real possibility that you can make it happen right now! Imagine waking up every day full of passion and motivation, ready to tackle whatever challenges come your way. Whether starting a new business, mastering a new skill, or traveling the world, there is no better time than now. Don’t let fear, doubt, or uncertainty hold you back any longer. Take that first step, and watch as the pieces fall into place. Dreams are not just for the future. They’re for right now. So go ahead and chase them with all your heart – you won’t regret it.
