5 Tips On How To Awaken Your Passion And Live Your Dreams.
Living your dreams means something different to everyone. Some of us wish to be rich, powerful and famous, while others would prefer a simple, and quiet life. Whatever your dreams look like, there is a way you can create them. Here are 5 tips on how to awaken your passion and live your dreams.
“There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It is why you were born and how you become most truly alive.” Oprah Winfrey
If you are unhappy with your life, you have to change something. And that means taking inspired action. Your life will not change by accident or by luck; it will change by conscious effort applied by you and only you.
Step 1- Have a clear vision.
In order to create your dreams, first you must know what they look like. Spend time fantasising about the life you wish to create. Where are you? Who is with you? Be sure to be as specific as you can, think about things like your career, relationships, spirituality, as well as your health and wellbeing. The clearer your vision, the more easily the steps you need to take to create it will appear to you.
Step 2- Forgive past pain.
In order to move forward and create the life of your dreams, you absolutely must release any attachment or pain you are carrying from your past experiences. Ask yourself, who am I yet to forgive? Am I still angry with somebody? See a counsellor or healer to help you resolve your emotional blocks if you need to, and give yourself the permission to be free of your past once and for all.
Step 3- Commit to change.
Once you make the choice to live your dreams you may come across resistance from your family and friends and even from yourself! It is difficult sometimes for those around us to accept that we are moving on, or attempting to create a better life. When this happens, you must find your inner resolve and stay focused on what it is you want.
Step 4- Expand your knowledge.
I love the old saying ‘If you are the smartest person in a room then you are in the wrong room’. In order to grow, it is important to place yourself in the company of people who are living the kind of life you want. Listen to audio books, watch YouTube videos, read books and blogs; become passionate about your pursuit of knowledge. Building a new life means using tools that you didn’t understand before. Find them in others. Success leaves clues.
Step 5- Take action!
All of the knowledge in the world doesn’t count for much unless it is applied. If you want to learn to be a chef, you can take classes and read books on cooking, but until you get into the kitchen and use your hands, you are limiting your growth. We can only achieve as much as we are willing to risk failing. Step into the fire and fail forwards.
“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” Samuel Beckett
In the end we truly only regret the chances we didn’t take. If you wish to change where you are, then make the effort to do so. The life of your dreams awaits!
