3 STEPS to EASILY achieve your DREAMS
~ The only thing you need to do is follow your new habits. Because those habits align with achieving your goals and those goals align with achieving your dreams.
Written by M. Nella
A lot of the time, we overcomplicate things. You don’t need to do 20 steps. Just doing 3 hard steps will get you to your dreams. Of course you need to put in a lot of time and energy in order for it to work. However, I do believe that achieving your goals can be as simple as doing 3 steps. These 3 steps are crucial if you want to succeed in achieving your dreams. But sometimes we forget them. We think that one day we wake up in our dream. That’s sadly not the reality we live in. I wish it was…
The reality we live in is that we need to put in energy for something to grow. So let’s say you have a plant and you stop watering it. The only thing you continue to do is sit and pray for the plant to grow. What happens… nothing, well not nothing. The plant dies.
Of course the plant dies!
If you want something to grow you need to give it emotional love (attention) but also physical love. We can call those resources, think of the milk a mother feeds her child. This is how anything can grow, also a vision. In this article I will show you 3 simple steps you can do to make achieving your dreams a little easier.
1. HAVE A DREAM
One of the first things you need to do is realize that you are destined for greatness.
You didn’t come here on earth to just walk around and breath. No, you are here to live. To feel life physically, emotionally and spiritual. When you have come to this point, you are able to achieve all the dreams you desire.
But first you need to come alive. If you are not tuned in either one of the mind, body or soul, you won’t be able see your dreams. Dreams don’t come from the ego, they come from the soul. If you don’t know what your dream is, connect more with your inner self. Disconnect from all the external impulses and egoistic desires. Connect with the purity inside of you. That will show you the way. Your dream!
2. SET GOALS
To explain this step (even though it is quite simple) I will use an example. Let’s say you have always dreamt of becoming a photographer. As I explained earlier, you won’t wake up one day and be a photographer. No, you need to put in some work. Setting goals can help you with this. If you don’t know anything yet about photography, then you need to learn the basics.
BREAK THEM DOWN
To break down your goals you can do this small exercise. I do this sometimes and it gives me a lot of clarity and helps me create a vision of how I want to achieve a certain goal.
The goal you need to set for yourself is ‘I want to understand the basics of photography’. You can do this on a laptop, but I always prefer to grab a paper. On top of the page write down your dream. Under this you write down all the things you need to have achieved in order to achieve your dream.
Be a photographer.
– understand the basics of photography
– own a camera and lenses
– find the genre/style you like (nature, boudoir, etc.)
– etc. etc.
Some people love planning, others don’t and I am in between. Sometimes I am the type of person who does things, when she feels like it. I will do this course *when I feel like it*. The thing is that some things will never be something nice to do.
Cleaning your house will always be a boring task. But… You can make it more fun, put on some music and go for it.
That’s also how you should treat planning. If you know you won’t like doing a certain goal/step, make it fun. Sometimes I don’t know where to start writing, but then I listen to my favorite techno djs and my fingers start dancing to the rhythm. Cause you know rhythm is a dancer, you got it ;)? No but all jokes aside, trick your mind.
Instead of studying the latest trends, study yourself.
Observe and analyze the way you move though life. It’s not fun because you will face your weaknesses, but you have to learn how to use them.
In the next part I will write about how I trick my brain.
3. CREATE HABITS
I don’t like taking cold showers, but after working out I love them. So what do I do… I do sports before showering.
Two flies in one clap as we say in the Netherlands.
The first fly: I take cold showers because Wim Hof told me it’s healthy.
The second fly: I sport more often. Of course everyone knows this is beneficial, so I don’t need to explain this one.
What I wanted to show you is that creating habits can be fun. If you just understand yourself a bit and use your strengths against your weaknesses, creating habits will be easy.
The only thing you need to do is follow your new habits. Because those habits align with achieving your goals and those goals align with achieving your dreams. It’s all about discipline in this life. Who has the most discipline? Of course some people just get lucky, but most of us have to work hard and need to be accountable. Don’t think that tomorrow you will start running, do it today.
Stop telling yourself excuses and face the reality. The reality that the power is in your hands!
