”Ask yourself if what you do today is moving you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.”
Your future is created by being present in the moment. Your future is not created then, somewhere in the unforeseen tomorrow, it’s created now. It’s highly determined by your daily actions, thoughts and habits. By being present with yourself you allow yourself to expand and transform into the highest version of yourself. You accept that where you are right now is exactly where you need to be right now.
It doesn’t have to take 3, 5 or 10 years for you to become the highest version of yourself. However, what it does take is for you to put in consistent effort. Dreams usually do not happen over night, but the decision to change can happen in a blink of an eye. Don’t postpone your future just because you’re being lazy or afraid in the moment. See the fear for what it is; fear of the unknown, fear of what’s to come, fear of not being good enough, to not have what it takes. Embrace the fear, cause it’s trying to tell you something. If you don’t know what it is that is holding you back from moving forward, it will become very difficult for you to detach from it. Hence, the importance of getting to know thyself.
Dig deep, and you will start realising that the answers are closer than you think. You don’t have to look far, you just have to look within.
How to transform your dream to reality
- Consistent action; There’s a fine balance between taking action and having things flow to you. No action in the world will do, if you’re not open to receiving. Are you allowing good things to show up in your life? Are you making space for good to come to you? Do you believe you’re worthy of receiving? Start with the basics, start from the inside. Start with your why. Why do you want certain things? To make you look good, to prove yourself to others, or because you genuinely want them? Action that is aligned with your most authentic self have a tendency to bear fruit.
- Take responsibility; There’s no escaping this, but you’re responsible for your own life. You’re responsible for what words you choose to use, what actions you choose to take, and what you put out into the world. On the other side, you’re not responsible for how others perceive you. You’re not responsible for what others think of you. You’re responsible for your words, not for the words that is used to describe you. Therefore, focus on what you can do, focus on what you wish and want to do. As long as you don’t harm yourself or others, you’re allowed to do what you came here to do. What is more, don’t wait for someone to give you permission to start. Do it for you, and keep on doing it for you. The moment you make the decision to start speaking your truth, the people that are meant to find you will find you.
- Don’t be afraid of making mistakes – learn from them; Mistakes are not mistakes if we learn from them. Neglecting yourself and your passions, however, is a mighty mistake. I’ve learned that the biggest mistakes I have done in life is not to believe in myself. To not think that I have the right to have or do things. THAT is a mistake. But you trying new things and sometimes ”failing”, that will never be a mistake – instead it’s something that makes your resilience grow stronger and you becoming braver.
- Meditate; It’s when we start quieting our minds that our souls true calling has an opportunity to come forth. While meditating we allow ourselves to stop for a while, and we allow ourselves to listen to the things that are meant to come to us. Meditation, however, is not sitting with no thought; it’s sitting without judgement, letting the thoughts come and go. Giving that quiet voice a possibility to shine though.
- Get to know thyself; If you don’t know what is holding you back, you will stumble upon tremendous difficulties with moving forward. Talk to a counsellor, a psychologist or a really good friend. Sometimes talking with someone, will help you see the challenge in a different light, and you’ll start seeing it from another perspective, which in turn might give you new ideas on how to proceed. Carve out time each day for journaling. Putting your thoughts on paper might help you realise those spiteful limiting beliefs of yours. Start questioning them – understand that they are not facts, they are simply beliefs. Beliefs that can be changed, by you.
With this being said, I hope you have a successful start to the new year.
