We all have dreams, are you pursuing your dreams and taking action on them? Ever thought about how it would feel living your dreams and making them come true? If I think about my dreams coming true, I feel happiness, freedom and so much more…..
With most people, dreams just stay dreams, why?
I think because they are afraid of change and taking risks. Do I live all my dreams? No, of course not. I have so many dreams which I want to accomplish. My dream of choosing another profession for work was one of them and to become an entrepreneur was something I never thought was possible, but it was always a dream. How many times didn’t I say: “I wish I could be my own boss”! A dream come true for almost 5 years now…
Dreams do not have to be permanent
I also dream about seeing more of the world, there is so much to explore. So, in this case, it is necessary to take vacation time, and I am not talking about 2 weeks to explore the whole of Europe. Mostly when I am on vacation it is for 2 or 3 weeks in one country and it is the destination outside of Europe that I’ll take 3 or 4 weeks to explore the country. This gives me so much time to see and enjoy the country. These weeks are with no stress, no work, just me and new surroundings, people, nature, etc.
I always look forward to this time of the year. Doesn’t it feel good to treat yourself with vacation after a whole year of work and your daily routine? Every year I make a dream come true for the country I want to visit. This makes me happy.
Dreams do come true
I even made a dream come true to go to Las Vegas for a retreat that I wanted to be a part of this year. Never thought this would happen. Somehow I found a way to make a way…..
Recently I created a new dream. For this dream, I made a path of 5 years from now to accomplish this. And yes I am already working on this step by step. I put deadlines on my steps so I stay focused on this dream. Most dreams need money, true, but it does not mean they still can not happen! For my new dream, I need more money, but this does not make me wait until I get it. I do what I can to work towards this dream and try to save everywhere I can.
What I did do, I changed from the gym after 13 years, it saves me about € 560,- ($ 615,- ) a year to go to another gym, this is a lot of money. Yes, I will miss my friends and my routine, but I will still see them. I am also on a path to know it is a good thing to change my comfort zone and meet new people. You never know how this benefits towards my new dream. A least the money I save from this change goes to my new dream. The first step is made.
Share your dreams, you never know if someone can help you. This just happened to me recently. One of my clients heard what my new dream is and she had so many resources for me which could give me a good start to my dream. She came up with books, but also, and this one I am really excited about – I can follow free online courses from a university and if I follow them I can even choose to buy the certificate. I never knew this was even possible. So you see it is not so bad to share your dreams.
Long term dream
Another dream of mine is to have a second home somewhere else in Europe, like Portugal. This is not too far to go to and this country feels like a sort of home to me. I have been here 4 times and the 5th is coming. So to have a place here would be a dream come true, a nice temperature (the whole year) food is great, people are friendly. Yes, I see myself living here for a few months a year.
This dream is not developed in a few weeks, but reaching and seeing what you need to accomplish it makes it already so much fun. It also takes time and patience. I’ll give this one 10 years from now.
Why are we so afraid to follow our dreams?
We only live once, isn’t now the time to do it? Why wait? At least try to work on them. We do not know how much time we have on this planet, make the most of it while you can, choose to be happy!
If you have dreams follow them, make them come true!
Think about how you would feel if you have it or have achieved it? Visualize it, write it down. If you write it on paper it becomes real.
How will you feel if your dream is accomplished?
What do you need to make your dream come true?
Who do you need to make your dream come true?
Read/ Research people about how they make their dreams come true.
Visualize, see it, feel it.
“Stop living someone else’s his/her dream. Take the bold step and work on it to make your dream come true”.
Only you can make yourself happy, to work on your dreams will not always be easy, just keep going and one day it will all be worth it!
There is always a way to find a way and dreams do come true!
~Choose to be happy~
