Where Are You With Your Dreams? All In or All Out?


"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!
Live the life you've imagined."
-Thoreau

Last week I was in a networking event. While mingling a sweet, kind, gentle woman approached me and asked, “What do you do?” “I help people come alive!” I responded. “How do you do that?” she asked. “By helping them remember their passion.” “You’re like a dream whisper!” she told me. “Yes! That is what I am!” I told her.  We both laughed and exchanged business cards and promised to reconnect this week! This conversation made me think about dreams and the stages of dreams. Do you still believe in your dreams? Where are you in your dreams? Are you pursuing them? All in? In the middle? All out? Today, I want to talk about not only believing in your dreams, but truly committing yourself to being all in, because this is the stage that will put you in a state of bliss. Here are three tips for making dreams come true.

Admit you have dreams and life goals.
The first step in making dreams come true is to admit you have dreams. How do you do this? By telling yourself that you are worthy of dreams. Many times we are told when we are young to, “stop dreaming” “to get out of the cloud.” “In your dreams!” we are reminded. In essence to be a dreamer is considered to be a waste of time, because it would never happen. This develops a sense that you are not worthy of being a dreamer or a goal seeker. Let me remind you it’s your human right to be a dreamer, but it’s most important to go after them.

Take a small step.
I believe the hardest step to accomplishing dreams is the first step. Once you have identified your dreams, you must then take that first step that makes it more real. It’s the action of moving toward your life goals and dreams that make the come alive. When I decided to pursue my dream of “helping people come alive,” I started blogging. I was on a mission! What is one thing you can do today that will move your closer to your dreams? If you want to pursue your passion of cooking or photography, what can you do to be on your way? Could you take a culinary class? Could you take a photography class? It’s the little things that we do today that will make a big difference tomorrow.

You took the grand leap, now what?
You decided that you were all in with your dreams and took the grand leap, now what? Brace yourself and feel proud! Not many people plunge into the unknown all at once, but the ones who do, are in it for the ride of their lives. Taking a full leap is not recommended for everyone, but if you think it’s for you, go for it! The issue many people deal with when taking the grand leap is that there are many ups and downs. There are great doubts. You wonder if you did the right thing. You question your sanity! When you take the grand leap, you have to be mentally strong, you have to BELIEVE, that you will succeed. Keep your chin up beautiful and believe that you will prevail any obstacle that may come your way. This is the stage you must stay to make all your dreams come true. It's the hardest stage, but the stage where you will be reminded of your true essence.

So what will it be? Are you all in? In the middle? Or all out? My desire for you is to be all in! But I understand for many of us the first step is to actually remember our dreams. Wake them up! Take that first step, to eventually take the leap! Believe in your ability to make anything and everything possible by loving yourself and always seeking what makes you come alive. Until next time, BELIEVE. CHANGE. BECOME!
