Most people simply don’t have what it takes to create their dream life. It’s incredibly sad to think about, but the truth is that most people don’t even have what it takes to start trying to create their dream life in even one area, let along persist at the idea or believe that if they choose then every single part of the way they live can be perfectly in flow and – right.
What I find even sadder is that it’s not as though these people are stuck on the merry-go-round of a normal and often oppressive life because they don’t intrinsically have what it takes. We’re all blessed with the same natural desire for passion, purpose and meaning, and certainly we all have the ability to be driven, determined and persistent enough to get there.
We are conditioned.
We believe success has to be hard to come by, that ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’, and that only once we do ‘x’ and pay our dues do we deserve to enjoy ‘y’.
To enjoy our life.
What it comes down to is this –
It takes great courage to live your dreams, specifically to do so now.
Not once you’ve paid off your debt. Hit the next rung on the career ladder. Fixed up your house. Got the kids off to school or got yourself back to school.
Your dreams aren’t on hold because you can’t afford them, don’t have time, don’t have the right skills.
They’re on hold because you haven’t yet chosen to live them.
You can tell yourself that it just isn’t possible yet (or maybe you tell yourself it just isn’t possible at all!) all you like, but the truth is that that’s just your belief right now. A belief you have chosen and one you have the power to change anytime.
Do you have the courage to live your dreams now?
Can you imagine waking up every morning feeling incredibly excited about the day ahead? Every single morning? Feeling like you are just always in flow. Alignment. That everything is as it should be; in fact that everything is just like you always dreamed you’d one day have it?
And can you imagine that happening right away?
I said that most people don’t have what it takes to live their dreams.
It’s not quite right. The truth is most people aren’t willing to believe they have what it takes.
You have a choice. Live by excuses, follow the shoulds and musts and get everything done. Or –
Make your dreams your everyday reality.
Which do you choose?
Life is Now. Press Play.
PS What would be your ultimate dream life? It’s hard to chase after your dreams if you don’t really know what they are! I recommend putting aside a chunk of time today to write about what your perfect day would entail. And then simply find at least one or two things you can start doing right away, even in a small way. You can always start. You really do have that choice. I hope you’ll join me in living the dream in 2013.
