Hello, it’s great to back chatting to you now that we are into the second week of 2019. Hope this year is treating you well so far?
In todays post I wanted to talk to you about making your dreams come true.. and how you can do it quickly. Why? Well the 13th is ‘Make your dreams come true’ day, and when I heard about this, I must admit, I felt a little excited…
Why? Well because I am a firm believer in the power of the individual, when it comes to making your dreams come true, and I also know how you can do it quickly.
Just a week ago, pretty much anyone and everyone was talking about New Years resolutions, and wanting to make their dreams come true…
I have to admit, I am a sucker for such positivity, although as you will know if you read last weeks blog post, I also advised against making a list of resolutions, preferring the option of focusing on only ONE thing that you’d like to change in your life.
This brings me neatly back to the idea of making your dreams come true, and quickly…. so here goes, here are my top 3 tips on how to do this:
1. Get really specific about what it is that you want to happen.
So many clients talk to me about dreams… and things that they want to happen. But they have this vague, fairy tale idea of what their dream would look like, because really, if they are totally honest with themselves, they daren’t allow themselves to really FEEL how it would feel if their dream did happen.
Why? Because their subconscious mind is pulling them back constantly, telling them that it’s called a ‘dream’ for a reason, and if it’s never going to happen, then its safe to not really think about it, or you’ll only wind up disappointed.
I say Poppycock. Dreams can and DO happen, to the people who allow themselves to BELIEVE it, so let yourself really step into your dream, feel it as if it had already happened. I won’t go into the law of attraction here but have a read up on it and you will see what I am on about.
2. Take actionable steps to put the wheels in motion.
You can’t just sit about and hope that your dreams happen – you need to take realistic, actionable steps in the NOW that will start to set the wheels in motion and get you to where you want to go to.
For example, if you want to start your own online business, register your domain and start your website. If you want 2019 to be the year that you drop a dress size, get a personal trainer and start by looking at your diet. Make a plan. Start with little steps and before you know you’ll see real tangible results.
3. Let go of limiting beliefs that no longer serve you.
Okay so although the first two steps make total sense, why is it that so many of us put off doing what we know will actually change things? The answer is, our subconscious pulls us back from change happening.
Your subconscious mind has been there since the day that you were born, and does its best to protect you from things that it worries may hurt you. It forms and holds onto, beliefs that limit you, and the most frustrating part about your subconscious mind is that it is always running in the background, yet consciously you are not aware of it.
SO – if you find yourself unable to move forwards, and you seem to keep finding yourself stuck repeating the cycle of ‘I am going to make my dream happen’ but then you go right back to the begining, then it might be time to book a free clarity call with me and talk about how we can move you (and your subconscious mind) forwards.
I know that it can be daunting, letting yourself be happy (and YES it really does come down to you letting yourself be happy.) and we all find ourselves at some point in our life being caught in a negative, self sabitaging cycle. But change can and does happen, when you treat working on your mindset, just the same as you would your body. You need a plan of action and you need to fearlessly implement things. Your dreams are there waiting for you, let today be the day that you START things.
Just one step in the right direction is much better than not moving – Chris Jones.
Until next week,
Christopher Paul Jones.
