One of the things that you need to do when you have a dream, idea or a desire to accomplish something is, “Strike while the iron is hot,” as they say. The longer you wait to take action, the less likely you are to go after it. If “Living the Dream” is what you are after, then let’s get to work.
The first thing that you must do is decide what it is that you want. We are not thinking about what you think you can get, but what you really want. Go ahead and think about it for a little bit.
Believe it or not, this stage can be a little difficult and even a little intimidating. You may decide what you want and then say to yourself, “I better not choose that. There is no way this could happen for me.” We will get into that later.
Now, go ahead and write down what it is that you want on a card, (go ahead and shoot for the stars) and then put that card in your pocket and carry it with you. Look at it first thing in the morning and the last thing you do before you go to bed. If it is at all possible, look at it a few times throughout the day.
Step number two is to go ahead and see yourself living the dream. “Act as if “it has already happened. If it is a new car you desire, get a picture of that car, hang it up somewhere where you will see it often and visualize yourself driving that car.
A new home? How many bedrooms do you want? How big is the kitchen? Two and a half baths? Big backyard? Whatever it is, write it down, look at it , burn it into your memory.
Money—how much do you want to earn this year? How much do you want in your checking and your savings account? Be specific on exactly how much money it is that you desire. Do not just say, ”I want to have more money” because if you find a penny on the ground and pick it up, you have more money.
Want to lose weight? Same thing. Write down what you want to weigh, look at it everyday and guess what? It is going to happen.
One other thing, whatever dream or goal is that you write down, you need to put a date on it. You must put a date on it. An example is, “I will earn an extra $2000 dollars by…” then set the date. “I will weigh X amount of pounds by…”, pick the date. If you do not put a time limit on it, then it may never get started.
OK, so now that you have written down your dreams or your goals (and remember to dream big) don’t worry about how you are going to achieve them. Just continue to look at them, believe that it is yours and “BAM” the answers will show up. Don’t worry about how you are going to get there, just know that “YOU ARE’ going to get there.
Everything is possible. There is more than enough for everybody. All you need is someone to show you the way. Don’t wait any longer for what you want.
