- What do you really like to do?
- What makes you happy and happy?
- Do you like to dream what your life looks like?
- Discover the 3 keys to make your dreams come true.
Everyone has dreams. Everyone dreams about a different life from time to time. Everyone thinks about things you would do if you won the lottery. But what are the chances of you ever winning the lottery?
As a child, anything is possible. But the older you get, the less dreams you get. You find out that becoming a mermaid is a bit tricky. That marrying your mom or dad doesn’t seem to be the intention either.
Many of your dreams fade into the background. By the time you’re an adult, dreams don’t seem to exist. You no longer believe that everything is possible.
Do you still dare to dream? Do you dare to choose your dream life instead of dreaming your life? Really go for it fully?
Now you may think “Huh, how is that possible. For my dream life I need a lot of money. I will never be able to realize my dreams. I don’t have the right education. What I want is really not possible ”. Or whatever limiting thoughts you have.
But, let yourself be surprised and read on! Because much more is possible than you currently think.
Most dreams are deceit
Marco Borsato already sang about it. Most dreams are deceit. For example, dreams are often viewed by adults.
It is all deception. Too good to be true. You will never achieve what you dream. That is why it is a dream.
Your belief in your dreams has completely disappeared.
If it seems too good to be true
The quote “If it seems too good to be true, then it probably is” is all about people’s thoughts about dreams and beautiful things.
How often are you warned with this statement? By others as well-intended advice? In some situations it may be wise to listen.
But when it comes to your dreams. Is it true then? Are your dreams really too good to be true?
No of course not! Your dreams are never too good to be true!
What is your biggest dream?
Do you know what your ideal dream life looks like?
What would you most like to do?
How would you feel?
What do you want to achieve?
Your life is not about the things you have, but about the experiences you have. The memories you make. The things you share with others.
To be able to live your dream you must of course know what your dream looks like. Many people dream a bit, but they don’t know what their dream life would really look like.
But in order to realize your ideal life you have to know exactly what you want to achieve. There is nothing more fun than thinking about that.
So take your time. Take a seat somewhere undisturbed. At ease. Start dreaming about your ideal life. Write or draw what your ideal life should look like. Make it concrete. See and feel the things you want in your ideal life.
Dream your dreams
Ask yourself the following questions to find out what you want most and what your dream life looks like.
- How do you want to feel?
- What do you want to do when money doesn’t play a role in your life?
- What do you want more of?
- What do you want less of?
- What are your days like?
- How do you want to provide income?
- Where do you want to be?
- Who do you want to be around you?
- When you have all the time in the world what are you going to do?
- What did you like to do in the past?
- What gives you energy?
Write or draw anything that comes to mind and what you feel. Do not worry whether it is feasible. That is not important at all at the moment. It’s about discovering what you want. What makes you happy and happy. That you discover the common thread in the things you have written or drawn.
Do you see what your ideal life is? What it should look like? This is your B point. The point you want to go to. All the way up on the mountain.
Help! I like everything – Your dream life is a luxury problem
I just almost get stressed out of determining what my ideal life should be like. There are just so many great things in your life. Do you have that too?
That you just really don’t know what you would like most?
You can come up with so many nice things?
There is so much fun to do?
That you can’t choose?
Did it all just overwhelm you?
You don’t even start your dream life because of that?
That you just keep moving on with the life you are living now. You let your life be determined by the things you want most now. Do not consider what you want most in your life. Such a shame!
Live Your Dream – The Overwhelming Feeling
Even if you don’t know exactly what you want, because you enjoy it so much. There is often a certain feeling that you would like to have. Or you can discover a common thread in the questions you have answered for yourself.
That’s the all-consuming feeling. For me that is the feeling of freedom in my life. That is what I want. For that I have to take the steps. I’m not there yet. That is a priority to achieve. I keep the focus on that.
And that’s what you can do too. Discover the overpowering feeling in all those things that seem so nice to you. Don’t get overwhelmed by all the fun things you can think of for your ideal dream life.
Find the common thread in this list of things you have written down. To your own all-encompassing feeling. The feeling that makes you completely warm inside.
That is what you will be working on. What you should keep the focus on. To achieve your dream life. Then you will see what you are going to do in your dream life. Can you then make a choice between all those cool things. Or do you complete your list 1 by 1. Just because it is possible!
What is your starting point?
Where are you in your life right now? Do you know exactly where you stand?
How are you doing financially?
How is it in terms of relationships with the people around you?
What do you do daily now? Does that make you happy?
Are you as healthy and sporty as you would like?
How does your income come in at the moment? Are you happy with how much it is?
How do you feel?
Are you doing enough things that you enjoy?
To determine the road to your dream life you need to know where you are now. You can’t just go one way, because how do you know if this is the right way?
That’s why it’s just as important to take a really good look at where you are at this. What is your starting point from where you set out to achieve your dreams? Away from the stress and away from the things you don’t like.
What will stop you?
What are the things that hold you back from living the life you dream at this moment?
By looking at the obstacles you are now experiencing, you can see what the solution is to get closer to your ideal dream life.
Your dream life is a multi-year plan. It is the journey you are going to make that you can fully enjoy. But you can already take concrete steps today to get on the way to your dream life. Making small goals that are achievable in the short term. If you don’t start today, when will you?
There is never a right time to start. There is always something to postpone. You can always come up with a reason or excuse.
Believe in your dreams
Do you really believe that you can achieve the life you dream about? If you don’t believe in this, you can stop hoping that you will ever achieve your dream life. That will not happen.
Only if you believe in it for the full 100% can you achieve what you want. Otherwise you will let that voice in your head hold you back that will make you believe everything.
Of course there will be times in your life when things happen that you would rather not. You will feel like you will never achieve your dream life. Won’t it be fun at all to do whatever it takes.
But if you really believe in it. Really like it. Then you will take steps towards your ideal life. Will you keep going when the going gets tough. Heading for your ideal days. Can you do the things that really matter to you.
Making your dreams come true – the less pleasant things
But you don’t just realize your dream overnight. Unless you might ever win the lottery, but even then the question is whether you really get your dream life and become happy. Just read this research.
So time to stop dreaming about winning the lottery. Look for the things in your life that make you truly happy. That give you the freedom you are looking for.
The road to your dream life will not be a straight line up. You are not going directly there. It will be a road full of bumps and potholes. With dead ends.
You will have to make sacrifices. That may sound very tough. But it means nothing more than that sometimes you have to let go of nice things to keep the higher goal in mind.
That sometimes you can’t do or can’t buy something. Because you can only spend your time and money once on something.
But if you keep in mind what you’re doing it all for, it’s a lot easier to give up some things.
Be prepared for hard work, giving up things and disappointments. You should know these are coming. Not to let it stop you, but to go for it completely.
Dare to dream
If you think that things have not been put away for you, then you are missing out on many opportunities. Many people do not dare to take risks. Have the approach first see, then believe. Afraid of disappointment. Afraid of what others think and think.
A shame, because if you start to think differently, you can realize your dream life. If you dare to start dreaming and believe in it, it can change your life.
Not by just dreaming, but also taking action towards that dream life. Towards that ideal day. Actions aimed at what you want most in your life.
Live your dream. Before it is too late.
Realizing dreams does not happen in 1 day
You will not reach your ideal dream life in a short time. If you look at what you have written about your dream life, you may have the feeling that you will never get there.
But what about things that are not important that you can stop and have more time to focus on your dream life?
How much TV do you watch?
How much time do you spend on Facebook or other social media?
You can also put all that time into doing or learning things that you want to be closer to
Because what are the benefits of watching TV and Facebook? That does not benefit me at all. It just takes me a lot of time. I sometimes let myself be seduced by it, but actually I think it’s a waste of my time and I can do other things perfectly.
Don’t get distracted and make sure you achieve your goals.
follow your dreams
Your mindset is so important! It will ensure whether you will follow your dreams or not. You will encounter many bumps and potholes on your way. Things that make you think you will never achieve your ideal life. Which makes you want to be put off.
The voice in your head will try to stop you. He wants to keep you small and keep you where you are now. You want to protect it against so-called failure. Be aware that it is just a thought. Nothing more and nothing less.
The 3 keys to your dream life
Mindset, focus and discipline are the 3 keys to your dream life. That’s what it’s all about.
To consciously choose your dream life and to be able and willing to commit to it 100%, it is important to change your mindset .
You have no doubt heard it: If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got.
So if you start to change things in what you do, you will also get other things in your life.
Stop listening to that little voice in your head. That’s what you can train. Train yourself to perceive your thoughts and only listen to the thoughts that make you more powerful. You don’t participate in the other thoughts at all. They are just thoughts that are in your head. They don’t say anything about you and your life. If you don’t pay them attention, they will diminish on their own. By paying attention to the thoughts that make you more powerful, you will grow in your life.
Another beautiful statement you’ve heard: Everything that you give attention grows.
If you give your negative thoughts attention, everything negative will grow in your life. If you only listen to your positive and powerful thoughts in your life, the positive things in your life will grow! Then you will achieve much more if you now think it possible.
Focus is important to make the right choices. Focus on the long term and not the short term.
It’s the choices you make. They ensure that you will make your dream life come true. But even if you have realized your dreams, you will have to keep making choices. Some of the things you would rather leave at the time for what you want in the long run.
Most people think short term. Go for the things they want now. The things that make them happy now.
But those are not necessarily the things they want in the long run.
It is so easy to be seduced by what you want right now. Then you feel good now. That is wonderful! You still want to feel good. But it often doesn’t get you where you want to be in the end. To what you ultimately want or do.
If you focus on your dream life, it suddenly becomes a lot easier to do things that you actually prefer not to do. Do things that you don’t really feel like doing at the moment. Do things that you find scary or have never done. But that will bring you closer to your dream life.
Finally, you need discipline. The discipline to keep it up . Sustain as long as necessary.
In order not to give up when things get tough. Because that’s what it will be. The road to your dream life is tough. Especially in the beginning when you are still completely used to all the distractions.
But it is worth it to persevere. Ultimately, that will make you happier than giving up.
Are you one of the few people who can do this?
One of the few people who knows how to combine these 3 things and keep going?
Starting to change your mindset?
I have made 10 super powerful statements to start living your dream life for you. The very first step to change your mindset.
Anything to do with mindset and explanations may sound a bit “floaty”. May feel really weird to do to you. As if it is only reserved for spiritual people.
But do it anyway! This is your first step. This is where you start to change your mindset. Here begins your belief that you can decide for yourself what you want to do and which choices you make. Only listen to the thoughts that make you more powerful.
Make dreams come true – plan
If you don’t plan for your dreams, you don’t know what steps to take to start living your dream life. If you just start doing things, you do not know whether you are on the right track to your ultimate goal. You don’t have anything to hold on to and nothing to check.
So what you are going to plan is the steps you have to take to start living your dream life. You do not start at the beginning, but at the very end.
You start with your ultimate dream life. When do you want to achieve that? When do you want to start living your dream life?
If you know when you want to get to the point where you can start living your dream life, you can plan from there back to where you are now. Can you determine exactly the small steps you need to take to reach your big goal?
You make a broad planning. Do not fill your entire agenda so that nothing fits. There is no room for unexpected things. You cannot experience the freedom you are looking for.
But make sure you know what steps you need to take to achieve that big goal. That you have mapped out the broad outlines. You know which steps follow each other to achieve your dream life. And you don’t get distracted by other things.
You cannot predict the future. Unexpected things will always come your way. That’s how life works.
What if your dreams are so big that they overwhelm you?
When you think about your dream life now it all seems so overwhelming. Then it all still seems so far away. Not at all feasible.
You would almost let all the grandeur of your dreams hold you back. Because you are still so far away from it and you are still at the bottom of the high mountain.
If you do not make your dream life concrete and do not plan back to small steps then it is also overwhelming. Then that mountain is also much too high.
That’s why it’s important to make sure you plan the broad outlines of your dream life. So that you know which small steps you can take. You can check if you are on the right track. And you know if you are also on track to achieve your dream life.
Start planning your dream life back today and taking the first step. If you know every time what next step you can take towards your dream life, then you know exactly what to do. Can you ensure that you get a step closer to your dream life every time. You go in the right direction step by step.
You have the perfect picture, but is your dream life always perfect?
The picture you have sketched of your ideal life is completely perfect. That’s what your life looks like when everything is right. What you strive for. The top of the mountain.
When you reach that highest point on the mountain, is it always exactly like the picture of your perfect life? Is it really always perfect?
No, your dream life is not always perfect. That is not necessary. Perfection is not what you strive for .
Unexpected things always happen in your life. Things always go differently than you thought. Things always happen that you would rather not have. That’s life. You can’t always have it like you want. But it is how you deal with that.
Also in your ideal dream life you will sometimes have to do things that you may not like. Things you’d rather not do. Which you’d rather postpone. Or that you would rather do something more fun.
You want to live a healthy life. That includes healthy eating and exercise.
You would prefer to take a nice greasy bite, because you like it the best, and plop on the couch in the evening to watch TV.
But that does not fit with your ultimate dream life. You will not get healthier from a tasty greasy snack and sitting on the couch.
So you will have to cook healthy and instead of hanging out on the couch, it is better to exercise.
That’s kind of what I’m talking about. Your ultimate dream is to be healthy. Then you have to act accordingly. Make the choices for that.
That can be very difficult at times. Because you’d rather do other things.
But it is important to keep the big picture in mind. Of course you can eat a greasy bite once and relax on the couch. But not every night.
Why go for your dream life if it isn’t perfect after all?
If your dream life is not perfect, why do all the effort?
Your dream life is so much more fun to live! It contains everything that makes you happy. It is a pity that things come your way that are not perfect. The rest of your life will be so much fun.
You are a happy and happy person. Live the life you want to live. Have the freedom you want. Makes the choices that make you happy.
That is why you should go for your dream life.
Living your dream – Dreams alone won’t get you there!
But what now? You have started dreaming again. But nothing happens at all….
You won’t get there with just dreams. It’s not like you dream and believe in your dreams that they come true on their own. It takes a little more for that.
It is time to take the right steps. Your great dream may overwhelm you. It’s so big and has such an impact on your life. It feels so scary that you almost put your dream on the back burner.
But you can make this great dream come true! By simply starting at the beginning. To take the first steps. Turn your dream into a project. Make a concrete plan with steps you need to take to make your dream life come true.
A to-do list where you can tick off all the small steps towards your big goal. That way you know exactly what to do. Do you have everything concrete. Seems a lot less scary to start.
