Some people go to bed at night and have dreams where they see themselves living another life while some don’t. They just sleep and wake up just like that no dreams.Also some people stay awake and dream big dreams while others sleep. To dream we engage the power of our mind to create realities that we want to see. Dreams differ and its our choice to determine how big you want your dream to be.
However not everyone that dreams get to live their dreams. I have attended seminars where we were asked to do a 3 minute meditation of where we want to be in the next 10 to 20 years.But forgot to tell us how we can build and live those dreams in our head. As a teenager I dreamed to be a top musician . The likes of Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Cece Winans etc were my heroes and heroines. I dreamed to be like them. Fast forward to today I don’t know what happened. Well that’s not true, I actually know what happened. I didn’t do kpikichim (doing nothing) about that dream.Not even training my vocal cord a little. That is why I am not singing professionally today. Maybe some day I will rekindle that particular dream but right now am pursuing other dreams which is working for me.My point is without acting on your dreams they won’t see the light of the day.
Dreams don’t happen by magic. You work it!
It’s OK to have big dreams but you have to make a conscious decision to make it a reality. Sometimes we give up on our dreams because we don’t know how to go about it.We are confused of where to start from.We are anxious and stuck in a particular state of mind that is not moving forward.The years, months, days pass us by and we are still where we are, sometimes still talking about it rather than doing or just watching others living similar dreams. If you are reading this post this is not your portion in Jesus Name Amen.
A big dream without a plan is simply mere wish.
How do you start to build your dreams?
It’s time to wake up. Yes you have been sleeping a lot. While men slept the enemy came and sowed weeds in the field. Only those awake can plant and water their field.Take a pen and paper and clearly define what you to want.Take time reminisce, meditate and be truthful to yourself of what you really want.Write down every concrete thought that comes to your head of what you really desire to see in your life.By the time you have finished that visit google. Yes google it. Search for people who are doing what you want to do. Study their works.Take the same actions they are taking that is working for them and if you have enough money hire them as your coach.
You don’t wait for your dreams to happen, you act on them.You build it.
Learn to be ready for opportunities or what some people call breakthroughs. Ask yourself this question. At the end of my life what will I need to have done to be able to say to myself I lived life to the fullest? To build your dreams you need to take charge of your life.Let your optimistic self take control of your driver seat. Take actions.You can only be lucky when you are prepared for the opportunity that is coming your way. Every day is filled with opportunities only those prepared can maximize them.
Change your belief system. It’s possible to become your greatest self. See yourself in the shoes of who you want to become. If you are Dangote Aliko or Bill Gates what will you be doing everyday? Do those things that your successful self will only do.People with their dream career are human beings just like you. We all have the same 24hrs , the difference is how you maximize it.
- The internet have made our lives easier. You can learn skills that you need to succeed on YouTube as long as you have internet connection.Acquire soft skills such as self management,social media skills,negotiation skills etc. Learn something that will either boost your career or help you start your dream business.Or better still look for an organization or a cause to volunteer for .
Life is what you make it to be. Do not sabotage your self by not taking action today.Live each day having faith in yourself.You can be anything you desire.
