Why are you still dreaming the same dream? Is it something you desire? Is it because there is a purpose burning within you that has not been fulfilled?
Why are you still talking about that same dream over and over again? Is the dream part of your soul? Do you believe this dream is about your purpose in life?
Why are you telling everyone about this dream and you have not taken a step to fulfill it? Are you more about talking about the dream instead of doing something about it? Is it easier to talk about your dream than working to fulfill it?
OR… Are you simply afraid to take the steps to make the dream a reality?
Anything worth having or pursuing will challenge and transform you. The process of fulfilling a dream and seeing it to completion will bring life to you. The sense of being able to bring a dream to reality is the ultimate confidence boost you’ll ever experience. But first, you must get over the fear of starting. Then, get over the fear of failure. Plus, get over the fear of being a perfectionist (OOPS!…. I think I’m talking to myself on that point!). Finally, get of the fear of success (if that exists for you). Overall, just get over the fear of everything!
Why is this important? Why should you see your dreams fulfilled? There’s a bigger picture you may not realize. The process you endure to see your dreams fulfilled will benefit others; those who are watching you from the audience of life. You see… When you take a chance to follow and pursue your dreams, other dreamers will be watching you and wondering to themselves if they can do the same. You have to realize, what you endure in pursuing your dreams is not ALL about you… but about others who can 1) benefit from your experience and/or 2) be motivated to pursue their dreams.
How and where do you begin? Create a series of steps to help you fulfill your dreams:
- Dream and DREAM BIG!!
- Gather photos to create a vision board of your dream.
- Write a “Dream-to-Action” plan; provide key steps to achieve the goal.
- Complete each step of your action plan at a pace that does not overwhelm you.
- Celebrate each time you complete a step and move to the next step.
- Journal your progress in writing and/or give a progress report to your support network.
- Visualize the finish line of your dream being fulfilled.
Capture the vision in your heart. Create the plan. And see the dream into ACTION!!
