Think back to when you were a child, how wild was your imagination? How free did you feel to become whatever you wanted? Did you believe that no matter what your dreams were, any obstacle would give way, and that dream you had could actually come true?
We’ve all been there; dreaming without limits. However, at some point in our lives, we tend to lose the belief in our dreams, that playfulness, and innocence. We get caught up in the cycle of looking at someone else we have deemed successful and begin thinking, if I achieve X, then I will feel Y.
If I get this promotion, I will finally be happy and feel successful.
We start to unconsciously become part of a system where we base our success on other people’s standards of what success is. This way of “living” becomes exhausting because you’re trying to live up to other people’s expectations when you don’t even know what their expectations are.
I’m reminded of this saying I heard a while back when I was beginning my paradigm-shifting journey,
“I’m not who I think I am, I’m not who you think I am, I am who I think you think I am.”
It might seem like such a riddle, but when you read it again, aloud to yourself, you begin to see that it is what the cycle of success looks like from the outside. You start to see that as individuals, we start playing to other people’s expectations, but there’s no way we even know what those expectations are because, more than likely, we don’t even ask…we assume.
What I believe and teach is to recenter yourself and dig deep into what success looks like to you. Sit quietly with yourself and get down to what it is you want out of your life and your business by writing down your big dreams and desires.
You can do this over your morning coffee with some quiet music, on a hike, the treadmill, or even in the shower. Wherever you can find a few minutes free from distractions.
I challenge you to get silly and think massively, “What do I want?” Even if what comes to mind instantly feels so unattainable because you don’t know the solution or the way to get there at this particular time. I am here to tell you the universe is here to provide for you and as Bob Proctor always says, “if you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hands.” That big massive dream you envisioned is yours to have and your intuition will guide you toward where you need to go.
If your quiet place happens to be somewhere, you don’t have access to writing these dreams down, do so, the minute you can write it down and get specific with it. When you clearly state what you want, the universe already has it lined up for you. Once you make the decision to go after your goal, you will notice the solutions around you; that’s actually how our Reticular Activating System in your brain works.
The universe is sitting and waiting to give you what you want, but it needs you to be specific. When you flip flop or are unclear, the universe can’t provide you with a solution because it doesn’t know what the ask is. When you are finally clear on what your dream is, the universe says back to you, “Your wish is my command” and will begin showing you and offering you the help and the path to achieve your biggest dreams.
If you are not advancing your goals as quickly as you’d like, ask yourself…Can I afford to go the slow way any more?
I want to help you. You are so worthy of living your dreams and now is the time to dream and invest in your beautiful vision. The world is changing, and there isn’t a better time to get off the sidelines and get the support you need to make it a reality. Let’s get on a call to see how I can support you.
