All too often, we can get caught up in living in a fantasy world, always imagining the things we'd like to do, the possessions we'd like to have, and the person we'd like to be.
But ultimately, while this "wishing" may make us feel good when we become immersed in it, what purpose does it really serve if we don't ever end up actually living the life we've dreamed of?
We can dream of improving our life, but wouldn't it be better if we actually made the necessary changes?
We can dream of bettering our success, but wouldn't it be better if we actually became more successful?
Most people fall into habit patterns that will keep them where there are and not permit them to improve their lives in the drastic measures that they wish would occur. Because of this, their fantasy getaway (escaping to the world of their dreams in their imagination) is the only way they'll ever slightly be a part of such a world.
To help you begin living the dream life you've always imagined, here are three steps I recommend you follow:
1) Focus On Your Desires Coming True
The more you focus on what you want actually manifesting, the more you set up a new, positive, constant vibration in your body. In our universe, "like attracts like" so if your body's energy is resonating in harmony with what you do want, then you're helping naturally attract it into your life.
Many people are always focusing on what they don't want. Even if they say something like, "I don't want more debt," it doesn't matter – they're thinking and focusing on debt, and so they'll simply attract more debt into their lives.
With feeling, visualize your desires coming true and also read and recite affirmations that will help promote this, as well.
Create a sense of gratitude in your mind and body for your desires already having come true (even if they haven't yet), because doing this is going to help put you in the right space to succeed.
2) Create and Welcome Change
Many people fear change; they've developed a false sense of security in the lives they're currently living. They think they'll stay safe by continuing to live the life they always have, but the truth is that if they want to improve their results, they must abandon their old ways of living and welcome change into their life.
Change is what fuels the world: innovating something to make it better; creating new ideas to improve an old model; always striving to be better and not settle for "repeat performances."
There's something inside of you which is continually trying to express itself in a greater and better way. It is your job to stoke the fire within you so that you can make quantum leaps forward into times of great success.
You must consciously go about creating the changes you want to see in your life. Sit down, make the decision to succeed, list out the steps you know you can take immediately to help you move forward, and then start implementing those necessary actions into your life. Finally, when the change happens, welcome it and embrace it!
3) Support and Educate Yourself
Like an athlete, you're going to need support and guidance if you want to be a success.
So treat the world like a resource to learn from and profit from. What made all of the greats of the past so valuable and so successful was the simple fact that they never stopped learning. They had a hunger for knowledge, and this is what you must develop.
Along the journey, you may encounter setbacks, and that's okay! The things that you must focus on doing include pushing past the failures, finding inspiration and support to keep going, and then continuing to persist in the right direction; while you make significant changes to your life, it's important to have support systems in place in case you ever fall down.
So seek the knowledge that will help your results skyrocket. Also, find others who will help support you in your endeavors and who can help point you in the right direction for success.
