Go after your dreams

Start where you are, with what you have, just start

In current time as I am writing this, I'm sitting in one of my favorite coffee shops (Bliss) the name says it all right. The weather is cool and crisp and people are relaxing all around me. Some reading, some working and some laughing with friends.

It fills me with joy and gratitude for every moment I have experienced lately.

Which leads me to wonder about goals, dreams and pursing a life that fills us with endless amount of joy daily.

Why do we struggle with the actual start of going after our dreams.

You write them down, pin them up, design the dream board, but that's often where it stops. Day dreaming, longing for and imagining what that dream life will be like when it finally happens.

Why is it that you struggle so much with taking it further? 

What's actively preventing you from having a life aligned with who you are at a soul level.

You want to know a secret

You are the only thing holding you back 

GASP, that's right, I just said that out loud.

Big ah-ha moment right there.

There will always be an excuse if you search hard enough.

If you only take one thing away from reading this today let it be

It's time to acknowledge your dream and go after it with fierce determination and the knowing that you are so worthy of your dreams.

Sit down, write out your goals, create a road map of how to get there. The more time you spend actively thinking about your dream the easier it becomes to see how it could be in reality.

Drop the "if only" mentality.

Any time you catch yourself saying "if only" this was possible or I'm sure I could accomplish x if only I had y, stop yourself and rephrase.

Instead use

I know this is possible because.....
I am more than capable of accomplishing my dreams because...

Switch the negative into a positive and instantly watch your mood transform.

Now take the first step.

This is often the hardest part but it doesn't have to be.

Think about the smallest thing you could do today, right now that would start you on the path to your dream life.

- Is it doing some research
- Mapping out a plan
- Getting clear on your ideal timeline

Start small and build momentum from there

Today is the day

I challenge you to consider the steps you will take to actively start pursuing your dream.
