Aspiring and achieving your dreams entails some commitment and dedication. The greatest achievement was at first and for a time, a dream.
Many people are not living the life of their dreams:
First, it may seem unrealistic due to limiting thoughts or life difficulty. We may feel we have too little knowledge or experience to realize those dreams.
Also there’s also this feeling like our dreams are already saturated – which comes from a scarcity mindset.
Lastly, which may be legit sometimes we’re waiting for time to catch up – nothing bad with that.
Learn how to take your dreams and make them a reality by following these simple steps.
10 ways to aspire to your Dreams?
1: Stop sleeping on your dreams
You must acknowledge the significance of your dreams and how badly you want to accomplish them.
If you sleep on them, let no one know and take zero action to turn them to reality– you simply bury your dreams and take them together with you to your grave. WASTE.
Fact is you don’t even have to figure everything out. People have big dreams but often choose to “downgrade” them just because they don’t have all the answers to turn their dreams into reality.
What they don’t know is them doing so devalues your passion and motivation which kills progress. Dreams are meant to be realized.
2: Set Realistic Goals
Then you must begin to set goals.
Make sure your goals are big but Realistic. They must challenge and scare you – but you must have a conviction that they’re possible if you put in the right effort.
Without specific and achievable targets, it will be difficult to measure your progress or know when you’ve reached your desired destination.
It doesn’t matter how long – but they’re indeed accomplishable.
3: Faith over fear
You must be willing to let go of your self-doubts, limiting beliefs and any other thing that is preventing you from accomplishing such dreams.
Check out my post on things you have to give up to achieve Success.
Your limiting thoughts arise from your current beliefs, self-image and how you view the world.
When you’re moved by faith instead of fear – you’re willing to take risks that can take you to your next level in life.
4: Visualize your dreams
Visualize it and make it happen!
We must make the habit of visualizing what we want to see in life: See your dreams as already achieved and watch them come true.
People underestimate the power of a vision board. The daily visual impact will make your dreams come true.
Once you learn how to show up as your highest self constantly your dreams will manifest into your reality before you know it.
5: Take Action daily
Whatever dreams, you wish to accomplish, the power is in your hands to take the right action that’ll get you closer to those goals and dreams.
And to get to your dreams, you have to:
✅ shift your focus from what scares you
✅ to your dreams and goals
✅ then make your first step without overthinking
What you have achieved so far is because of your current way of thinking and the resulting actions.
Its only by taking action that you can turn your dreams to reality.
6: Don’t give up
Whatever your dreams are you have to take quitting off the table for your dreams to come true.
We need to go out and live our dreams, which means more challenges are going to come your way. That is part of the journey.
Prepare you heart from the start – that you’re going to meet challenges and your goals is to overcome them not let them stop you.
In order to achieve your dreams, you must first learn how to overcome adversity and keep going even when things are tough.
Fact is for every challenge you face – you experience growth in the process of overcoming them.
Life is full of highs and lows, don’t allow any detour you face should change your destination.
Keep your eyes on the price!
7: Be willing to go the extra mile,
No matter how long you shy away from your dreams – remember that only you can make your dreams come true.
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is the extra work we are willing to put in.
A positive outlook is essential for achieving any goal, so learn how to cultivate one if you want to make your dreams a reality.
It’s easy to give up when things get tough, so it’s important to find ways to keep yourself inspired and driven throughout the journey.
We have to be relentless in pursuing our dreams and be committed to putting in the work to make them a reality.
Be willing to go the extra mile, develop a positive mindset and choose to stay motivated.
8: Surround yourself with those that inspire you
If you surround yourself with only people that live on “would have” “should have” “could have” instead of going after their dreams then your vision would be limited.
Make some effort to surround yourself with those that inspire you and are passionate about their dreams.
It applies to the kind of person you choose to marry – don’t settle. Like a post I saw on Facebook, Keith would say in terms of setting in relationships:
“There are women out here that will cook you a real meal, not on social media seeking validation everyday, that will help you build your dreams, that has a dope mindset, that will treat you like gold, that’s not always begging, and will give you all the attention you desire.”
9: Focus on your mission and purpose
Learn to align your dreams to your mission and treat it as such.
How else can you serve the world passionately and with utmost conviction if not aligned to your mission in life?
Use your talents and gifts wisely to fulfill your mission in life. Keep pursuing your dreams and seeking your purpose.
One of the most important keys success is learning how balance your time wisely between taking action steps towards your goals and taking care of other aspects of your life.
10: Don’t allow others talk you out of your Dreams
You’re going to meet haters and naysayers along the way – never allow them talk you out of your dreams.
“Its not possible”
“The market is saturated”
“I tried it, it didn’t work”
Remember, that they’re only speaking from their knowledge and experience and some people may not have your good intention at heart.
Only Share your Dreams and aspirations to people that look out for you and want the best for you.
Stay away from people who don’t believe in your dream. When you listen to the likes of Jay-Z or Drake you realize how much these people believe in themselves and dreams without caring much on how you view their lives.
11: Work with a Coach
We may only be one investment away from creating the life and business of our dreams.
For example a Life Coach:
A coach that helps you identify your dreams and aspirations and create a plan to achieve them.
12: Bonus Point: Help others
Help more people realize their aspirations if you want to go far and fast.
When you consider it, it could seem odd, yet there is no other reality.
It may look awkward when you think of it but there is no reality than this: The more you help others to achieve their goals, the easier it will become for you to also succeed too.
