It seems as though at one time or another we feel stuck whether it be in our career or just life in general. This is wonderful and completely understandable. It is wonderful because we are questioning ourselves. If we did everything in life without questioning our happiness, life would be dull and unrewarding. We wouldn’t realize all of the wonderful opportunities life has to offer.
Life has wonderful opportunities to offer. If you completely believe and know this to be true, you are well on your way to being unstuck.
We all have the ability to dream. Once we stop dreaming, we have succumbed to our current existence.
Sometimes people think of the word dream as just that, a dream that isn’t reality. Well I call BS on that mindset.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to always look forward to something? Doing what you love for a living? A promotion? Using your special sauce to start your own business?
My dream is to use my gifts to serve others in a happy, healthy, peaceful, authentic, honest and financially prosperous way. Whew! Your dream doesn't have to be a mouthful like mine. :) Ask yourself what your dream(s) are and start there. There is no dream too small or too big.
Do not let logical arguments get in the way of your dreams. I do not have enough money. I am not good enough. There isn’t enough time.
Whatever your dream is, envision it as vividly as possible and imagine it has already happened.
Let’s say you are in an unrewarding job. Stop and think. What is your dream job? What are the steps that will get you there? Then envision your dream job. If a step seems unsurmountable at first, stop and envision it has already happened. Think about how amazing you feel that your dream has come true. That feeling and passion is worth so much more than any so-called unsurmountable step. Keep taking action to make your dreams come true. Once you, your imagination and enthusiasm become idle, your dream becomes idle.
This action can be baby steps or giant steps, as long as you are pursuing your dream(s).
For the sake of your happiness, please take a look at your life, envision your dreams coming true and pursue them.
