The first thing you MUST remember when you begin to design your ideal life is that
Clarity Is Power.
Without a clearly defined blueprint, you cannot build a life of your dreams. Just like you must have a clear blueprint if you want to build a house, the same is true with your dream life.
• When you become really clear on what it is you really want in your life, you begin to see opportunities, circumstances and resources that you would have otherwise missed.
To begin creating a life you absolutely love, you must design a blueprint for your dream, and it has to be crystal clear.
Take a minute and dig deep. Imagine you have a magic wand or have met a genie in a bottle and can have anything you could possibly want without worrying about limits, current circumstances or any other impossibilities.
For this moment, believe that absolutely ANYTHING is possible…Think about what you would want if you could have anything at all?
What would you absolutely love for your life?
Once you have clarity about how you would love your life to be, you have to DECIDE you will become the person who creates that life, even though you might not know quite how it is going to turn out…..
Decide for Your Dream Life
You must remember this:
Anything is possible…
In order to create your ideal life…a life you absolutely LOVE living, you MUST suspend belief in conditions and instead believe in the higher power that is breathing you..
It starts with making a decision.
You are not going to know exactly how your dream will unfold to become reality. The universe works in mysterious ways, and all you have to do is define what you want and decide you are going to do whatever it takes to make it happen.
You must make a firm decision for what it is you want before you will bring your dream into reality, even if you don’t yet know how it might happen.
No new process can begin, and no new path can be forged until a decision has been made. But once you really make a firm decision to DO the thing, even in the absence of perfect conditions, a whole manner of things begin to occur and rush to your aid for the fulfillment of that decision.
It starts by saying to yourself “today’s the day I’m going after my dream. Today’s the day I say no to the doubts and reasons that it won’t work and I say YES to the possibilities and opportunities I can’t yet see or understand.”
What about you and your dreams? Are you ready to say YES to creating a more abundant life you will absolutely love living?
“The value of your decisions depends upon the courage you have to make them.” ~ Napoleon Hill.
When we decide to say YES to create our ideal life, there’s a part of us that is very excited and eager….and there’s another part of us that rises up and says, “Yeah right. That’s not going to happen!” or that voice may say “Well, HOW are you going to do that? You’ve never done that before!” Or it may say “Who do you think you are? You don’t have what it takes.” And the every so popular…”You don’t have the (_______) for that, it’s too (______).”
What is that voice? Where does it come from?
That’s the voice of fear. It’s the part of you that wants things to stay status quo. And often fear will disguise itself as practicality so it is difficult to recognize.
Fear won’t say, I’m here to kill your dreams. It’s too smart for that. It will say, I’m here to keep you safe. I’m here to make sure you never have to experience that level of pain again. I’m here to make sure your kids are taken care of. I’m here to make sure you don’t get embarrassed. It’s the part of you that asks “What if you fail?”
Okay, so what IF you fail?
Do you realize that every one of us who can walk has had at least ONE failure in life?
When we were babies we all started out as non-walkers. And as a non-walker, you saw people around you walking on their hind legs, and you wanted that level freedom for yourself. You wanted to be upright and to not be floor bound. And so you rose up and you tried taking a few steps, and what happened?
You fell down. But, what did you do next? You got back up and kept going. You got more confident and you took more steps until finally you become an excellent walker.
When we become adults though, we often stop trying again after we fall down in situations. Sometimes we don’t even want to try something to begin with because we fear we might fall down since we fell down doing something else in the past and now we’re scared.
But it’s the process of repeatedly trying, falling down and rising back up anyway that achieves dreams.
We MUST befriend our fear and give ourselves the permission to try even if we might fail so we can go on to succeed. We are meant for more, we’re meant to move forward, embrace change, explore our possibilities and really be ALIVE in the adventure that is life.
