10 Keys to Achieving Your Dreams
It takes a lot of courage, a big heart and a dash of insanity to go for your dreams. But every truly happy person that I know is doing what they love. Be it as a career or as a business.
Daring to dream again is no easy task. It’s not like we’re taught how to do it in school. I’m not sure about you but I was taught to be a good little worker bee. Nothing wrong with worker bees. We need them. They’re essential to life and for you to succeed in business. Some people are just designed that way. But that’s not the type of person that visits this site. Dreamers, achievers and people who are interested in success for life stop by here for inspiration, tactics and tips to turn their dreams into realities.
It’s a winding road to unleashing your dreams. And I don’t ever remember anyone sitting me down and asking, “What’s the dream for your life Ian?”
It had to be revealed to me. Bit by bit. Piece by piece. I had to be ready to finally get the message. And once I heard it nothing has been the same.
Cloning Paulo Coelho I could say, “The soul of the universe is always speaking to us. We just have to listen.”
So for those of us who are ready to answer the call – this post is for you. To help inspire you to your ultimate success. To push you past your personal boundaries. And I hope that these 10 keys will help you turn your dreams into realities. Giving you the fire and strength you need to start to unleash your own passionate genius.
Daring to Dream – 10 Keys To Unleashing Your Dreams
1) Have Big Dreams
Have the courage and strength to allow yourself to dream big. Big dreams keep pushing you forward. They lift you up and inspire you to be better.
2) Believe In Your Dreams
Have complete confidence that you CAN achieve your dreams. Belief in yourself inspires the action necessary to bring your dreams to life.
3) Dream With Effortless Ease
Go with the flow. Be receptive so that you can seize the opportunities that will present themselves to you.
4) Find The Wisdom In Failure
Don’t fear failure. Get out there and start making mistakes. It’s OK. Allow yourself to learn as you go.
5) Unleash Your Potential
Follow your heart. Don’t keep up with the Jones’. As Maslow said, “Be oblivious of the good opinion of others.” Do what makes you happy.
6) As Within So Without
Visualize and feel your dreams into existence each and everyday.
7) Invest In Inspiration
My Mom asked me if a book that cost $30 was expensive and I had to explain to her that for thirty dollars she was about to receive 20 years of this person’s wisdom and experience. Seemed like a good deal to me. Invest in yourself. Read, learn, grow and repeat.
8) Be Spontaneous & Have Fun
Your dreams don’t drain you of energy. If they do, guess what, they’re not really your dreams and it’s time to change them. Have fun, work hard and connect with others.
9) Have a Plan
Any good idea needs a plan to bring it to fruition. Take the time to plan. Have goals and take inspired action.
10) Create a Success Nexus
Steer clear of dream stealers and unbelievers. If they’re not building you up then they’re tearing you down. Seek out successful people and hang around them. Ask people that are wiser or have more experience than you for help.
Do you have a dream?
If you could do anything what would it be?
Give yourself permission to dream again.
Dare to dream…
