How to Follow Your Dreams

“To the ones who still believe in dreams:

Chase them. Chase them until you’re out of breath. Then, keep running.”

We each have a vision of where we want to be, who we want to be, and how we want to live.

However, many of us remain complacent with how things are, failing to take action towards living the lives we dream of.

Why do we remain complacent with how things are, continuing to live just to survive, just to get by, just to pass time?

The answer is simple.

Because we are in some way holding onto fear i.e. limitation, deprivation, lack, and have not shifted our mindset from fear to love i.e. abundance, possibility, creativity.

Here are simple, bite-size steps to take you from where are now to where you want to be, and to shift from feeling overwhelmed to motivated:

Commit to the idea that anything is possible.

The first step to harnessing the motivation to get to where you want to be, to taking action right now, is to eliminate any belief that is limiting you. You can do this by embracing the reality that anything is possible.

A surefire way to mute and to cut off motivation is to believe that what you want is not possible, not realistic, practical or implementable. Forget that and don’t listen to the naysayers that tell you that what you want is not possible. Not only is what you desire possible (because someone else out there is is living their vision, their dream), all you have to do is to live as if it is possible.

The key is your mindset. If you hold onto the belief, in any way, that what you want is not fully possible, then your dream becomes impossible.

Just take the next right action.

What you envision is possible. If you have envisioned it, then know that it is possible. The universe has give you that vision for a purpose, a reason. All you have to do today, right now, is to take the next right action towards your goal.

It is easy to feel overwhelmed by a goal, but when you chip away and work towards your goal on a task-by-task basis the goal becomes realistic and manageable. Just focus on doing the next right action to achieve your goal.

If you are feeling stuck, confused or unsure of what next action to take, do not be afraid to ask others who are living the life you want and brainstorming novel methods and strategies.

Be clear.

Ambiguity fosters confusion, and confusion leads to lack of motivation. Have one specific goal and set a deadline. Having a concrete goal that is written our and clearly delineated takes the confusion out. When you know exactly what you want and when you will have it, the option of not taking action is out of the question.

Recognize who you really are.

Who are you? You are limitless potential, creativity, beauty, compassion, divine energy, and possibility. There are no limits to what you can do, achieve, accomplish if you release fear i.e. limitation. You are the vessel and the divine energy in the universe works through you.

Be bold.

It is easy to take small action and it is easy to stay within one’s comfort zone. Reach out. Ask for help. Do something you normally wouldn’t do. Take a chance. Attend that seminar you have been wanting to go to. Book that flight to the place you have been wanting to go. call that person you have been thinking of talking to.

Remember that with this time, with this one life that you have here right now in this body, you have the potential to do whatever it is you want to do. So why not be bold and go confidently in the direction of where you feel inspired and led?
