In many cases what sets “successful” people apart is that they make the decision to dream and dream big. They also generally have a mentor or coach to guide them on their way.
Making this decision can be a scary endeavour for many people, and yet it’s this exercise that leads us on the path to living a life we absolutely love.
What if we gave ourselves permission to dream beyond our current reality? Where could these thoughts take us?
Taking these three steps can help you begin building your dream life.
1. Honour your discontent
Discontent is an important signal from our soul that something bigger is seeking to emerge through us. Give yourself permission to enter and explore the realm of your deep desires.
Harness this discontent by letting the dream begin to live in your mind and heart as a true possibility. Notice your body and your emotions. Does the feeling of desire heighten and your sense of “aliveness” increase? An expanded feeling of “aliveness” is an important indicator that you are on the right path.
2. Put the limiting past behind you
Practice repeating “Up until now…” to keep thoughts of your past experience from limiting your possible futures.
If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get the results you’ve always gotten. Pause for a moment. You’ll hear the old chatter that dictates every reason for not taking a risk. Listen, then pause. All these negative experiences and disappointments may have been true in the past. Now is the time to shrug them off. Your history does not determine your destiny. All your disappointments and regrets belong to a time that is ending at this moment. In the next moment, let out your yearnings in a first roar of awakening. This is a roar of triumph.
3. Consciously co-create with a higher power, and the impossible becomes possible.
Co-creation means you partner with something greater that you believe in – for many this is God or a Spirit - to build the greatest life you can live. When you recognize yourself as a co-creator, you ask for guidance and break through the self-imposed barriers that have stood between yourself and your desires. Begin each new day thanking this higher power and concentrating on a desire of yours that you previously believed was out of reach. Just for that day, act as if what you wanted was possible. Then see what transforms.
Here’s to your BEST LIFE!
