Happy New Year! The time for self-reflecting on the previous year and planning for the year ahead. Plan to set goals, plan to take action, and plan to check off tasks for realizing dreams. Everything begins with a thought (dream) and what one does or does not do (belief) is the catalyst for actively pursuing the desires of life (achieve).
Anyone is capable of accomplishing great things in their life. What separates those who accomplish their dreams and the ones that do not is the conquering versus succumbing to fear. Here are some rules to properly guide the journey ahead.
1. Suspend disbelief. This is a phrase often used in the artistic realm such as writing where the author convinces the reader that an imagined world exists. Know that even in the midst of struggle or learning curves that the realization of the dream will happen, even in those moments when it may feel or look impossible.
2. No comparisons. One will encounter problems when they begin to compare their journey to another individual’s journey. It is problematic in that you don’t know the full account of their story. This also shifts the focus from pursuing and working on your own goals and enjoying your own road ahead.
3. Do not reject the inkling. A dream will gently nudge at each of us and it will not be ignored. Rejection will only lead to regret. There is NOTHING to lose in the pursuit of a dream.
