5 Tips to help you live your dream life
I may not be an expert or a guru, however, I am living the life that I want. Yes, I am already living my dream, it might not be 100% there, but I have started. Living your dream is not always about the end goal, or your destination (when you’ve arrived), it is about the journey. The important thing is to start the journey and that is where the fun is. For example, our dream life is to have enough passive income to cover our expenses and sustain our lifestyle. As well as becoming a travelling family (a bit of a nomad) and bless people in one way or another. At the moment, we are building a new business, starting a blog, home educating the children and travelling a little. We recognise that it will not be overnight, and that the journey is very much an important part of the process. While I am still in the process, I can already say that I am living the life that I want and here are some tips to help you start living your dream life.
Have the mindset of the person you are trying to become- It is important to have a clear vision, that reminds me, I must update my vision board. A vision board is just a picture version of you goals and dreams. You can write down your dream life or goals or use a vision board and put it somewhere you can see it daily. You have to envisage yourself as you want to become. This is powerful, if you can see yourself doing it then you can accomplish your dream. For me, I remember putting a picture of a few desires on my vision board and thinking it was a bit farfetched, but I saw those images daily and they happened sooner than I thought. Never underestimate the power of the mind and creative thinking.
Be clear on your dream and what your life would look like- It’s one thing to have a dream, it is completely something else to make it clear. You might ask someone, what their dream car is, and they might reply, Volvo, however, they haven’t mentioned the model, colour, year, interior and how much it cost. This is what I mean by making it clear. It helps you stay focused on what you are chasing.
Do some research and if possible get some training- Sometimes your dream is unique to you, however, you might know or not know someone living your dream life. If you know someone doing what you are trying to do, let them be your mentor or if they offer a training course, then try and do it. Unfortunately, in this day and age, information is free and plenty and over whelming or detailed, focused and costly. This has been my experience so far. You can also buy books to learn, there is no need to reinvent the wheel, learn from those who are doing what you want to do.
Put in some action, put yourself out there and implement what you’ve learnt- You might pay for a course or be mentored by the best but until you step out on your own, it is just knowledge without little or no impact in your life. You simply have to implement what you have learnt, as I write this I have to do the same and I am scared of the big bad world. It is big and not that bad, the worst that will happen is ‘NO’. They will tell you no, and you move on to the next person and keep it going.
Keep at it daily or weekly- It is not always easy to transition out of your current life into your dream life. It might be immediate, or it might take time, but you always have to keep it in your mind, and take steps towards it as often as possible. Set it in motion and keep pushing until breakthrough. You can do it and so can I. You might have to start small, for example I wrote my first free ebook, it’s a quick read but what matters is that I did it. Make sure that your ideas become a reality, take it one step at a time and never give up. Let me know in the comment, if you find it useful and other tips that you might have.
