Are You Living the Dream?

Living the dream isn’t some distant fantasy that is achieved. We can live our dreams, starting today.

Many use dreams as an escape. They run scenarios and fantasies in their minds, never starting the work necessary to build a greater future.

They dream to escape the pain of the past and the present. Dreams become reality when you step into the pain and transform the pain into power.

Another obstacle may be the perceive expectation of perfection. Perfection is a trap that can hold your happiness hostage. It comes from a deep fear that worth and value comes from knowing it all, or having it all, and saying it without flaw.

The truth is that we all have pain, flaws, and imperfections. Moving forward despite those flaws, imperfections, and pain is true courage.

This is what it comes down to. He who takes the most action wins. Action is lean and quick while perfection is slow and methodical. Many times perfection kills dreams before they even have a chance to be watered and grown, let alone harvested.

Dreams and desires are wonderful and powerful. Having a clear vision of the future is the beginning. It is a seed that can be nourished and can bring a massive harvest and abundance.

Do you have your of dreams clearly identified? Traction comes from taking daily actions that are in alignment with your vision for the future. If you’re not going anywhere it’s because the rubber on your tire isn’t hitting the road.

If you don’t know the future you want to create, the actions you take won’t ever help you get there. Power and momentum will come into your life through focus and disciplined action. We build our futures starting today, every day.

I’ll end with three questions.

  • What are you doing to realize your dreams?
  • What actions are you taking today to create a greater future?
  • Who can you impact and serve today that can make that happen?
