And WHAT will it take to get there?
Are you one to day dream and think that it only happens to the lucky few?
Do you realize that those lucky few are actually doing what it takes to make their dreams a reality?
You can be one of the lucky people if you're willing to do what it takes.
I was inspired to write this after reading a blog post by my friend Angela over at My Year Without Spending.
Angela and I were best friends when we were 6 years old. We lived next door to each other in Southern California and share a lot of the same childhood memories. We lost contact for years and have recently been in communication again. It's amazing that after so many years we still have things in common. It makes me wonder if we choose our companions in life before we actually get here!
Here's her blog post:
How much $ do you need to live your dream?
by Angela Barton
That's the question they're asking at Married With Luggage this week, as they launch a series called "How we saved enough money to change our lives and how you can, too." It's all about the planning, saving, and lifestyle changes that will make it happen. Click here to read the post that kicks off the series.
For Betsy and Warren, their dream is to travel the world for a year, and they're counting down the days. Your dream may be the same, or it may be something completely different, but whatever it is, it takes work to make it happen. But if you've ever talked to anyone who has lived their dream - whether it's to travel the world, get out of their corporate job to join the Peace Corps, live in another country, write a book, or simply do the work they love - it takes a plan, discipline, and hard work to pull it off.
Married With Luggage shows you how to put it all together, in a way that's user-friendly, inspirational, and fun. So check it out, if you haven't already. It's one of my favorite blogs, so I have mentioned it before.
What's your dream? Are you pursuing it now, or is it more of a fuzzy fantasy that takes place in the distant future? Or maybe you feel like you're just keeping your head above water as it is. Or maybe... you're living your dream right now.
The fuzzy fantasy part is what got to me.
So many of us will live our entire lives dreaming of that some day...having a fuzzy fantasy.
So ask yourself what your life dream is ?
What are the practical steps you need to engage in to let the universe know that you're signaling what you want?
Personally I've found the Abraham -Hicks material inspiring and helpful in practical ways.
Here's the link to their web site:
My book Danny And The Dolphin was written in a children's style but is really a book for all ages. Adults as well as children can read about believing in their dreams and find some useful 'how to' tools to make those dreams come true.
Life is SO much more fun when you're persuing your dreams and living them.
It turns the 'have to' into 'want to' because you begin to see that by doing those things you're getting closer to having what you want.
Just like exercising and eating healthy. You don't get there by accident.
So start today...begin the journey of your life.
It's YOUR life and we each have our own wonderful dreams to live out.
I believe if we all reach for our dreams that the world will be a much happier place for everyone.
Here are some sites I've found that may be helpful:
This looks like insightful reading. I haven't personally read it but it looks like it will awaken ideas:
