Last week I was hanging out with a friend and got into a great jamming session about fulfilling our dreams. Did you know that by focusing on your life’s dreams you are actually holding yourself back and repelling them? Yes, that’s right. If you are constantly focusing on your dreams you will NEVER attain them. Surprised?
You might be thinking… WTF, just like my buddy. Well, I too was shocked to learn that most people do not understand this. This may go against conventional thinking yet I know it’s the truth as I’ve seen it replicated so many times. You cannot control the results in your life, so focusing on something that you can’t control disempowers you. Now I don’t want to take the wind out of your sails so keep reading.
What you must do is have a dream, goal or result in mind. Write it down, envision it and affirm it and then let it go. Yup that’s right, let it go. I help people go through a daily process to manifest their desires with my 5 manifestation vids on the right, so if that’s what you’re looking for opt in for those right now, they’re awesome. In this post I want you to understand how important it is to focus on the things that you can control.
With the end goal, result or dream in mind it must be let go to the universe. Cause that’s who needs to know about it. You on the other hand must stay in a place of allowance by persistently focusing on doing the work and mastering the tasks at hand that will bring you closer to the attainment of those end results. You see, if you simply focus on the dream you are stepping out of this physical world and entering the etheric space of possibility, cool to do! Yet you must step back into the physical world and focus on tangible things you can control to allow the physical and etheric worlds to collide. In other words, that collision = the fulfillment of your dreams, goals and end results. So here’s 4 ways to get your mental muscles strong and lean so you’re focusing on the right things within your locus of control.
Let the Dreams Unfold
1. Create an Inspired Climate
When you live in a space of inspiration your focus will be centred on all the processes, action steps, activities that you can do right now. Rather than having lucid thoughts about the future you’re inspired action creates a new resonance and tone from within as your being completely present. You begin to become the person that has achieved those dreams and results. So set some time aside to create and bask in a space that allows you to be fully present and focused on the work that you can do right now. John Wooden, a legendary basketball coach, said “Success is knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming”.
2. Be with the Right Peeps
You are an average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Average out all of their health, wealth and happiness and you are essentially looking in the mirror. Again, you can control who you spend your time with. It’s your life so it’s your choice. When I was 18 years old I said “Good Bye” to a life and every person I knew and started life over from scratch. Possibly one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do in my life. It was a lonely dark journey for many years. Yet, to make room for something new I had to let go of the old. Aligned peeps will keep you focused on the tasks at hand, put more wind into your sails so you’re inspired to do the work, endure the challenges and maintain your sanity… : )
3. Embrace Challenges
The challenges in your life are nothing more than opportunities in disguise. The universe is simply challenging you to step up to see if your worthy of your grand cause and dreams. Are you up for the challenge? It doesn’t matter what you have done or haven’t done, said, or haven’t said, you are worthy of your fullest expression of life. Overcoming harsh childhoods, illness, disease, abuse, poverty, war, or any other life crisis actually heightens your ability to achieve your wildest dreams. We have all had challenges, been tormented by them and overcome and grown immensely because of their gift. We can’t always control what life throws at us yet we can control how we respond. To increase the expression of my life I actually seek out more and more challenging opportunities and I invite you to do the same. PS: It’s worth the ride!
4. Be Extraordinary
You will become the person you are being day in and day out. Every single day you have the opportunity to just get things done or to pour every once of your heart into everything you do. That is the difference between ordinary and extraordinary. As a friend, parent, partner, colleague, student, child or any other title you have the opportunity to stand out and show the universe who you truly are. You are extraordinary and I assure you that to achieve your wildest dreams only your most extraordinary efforts day in and day out will allow you to become the person worthy of achieving them. So why not develop an appetite for success by taking pride in the smallest details of your daily efforts and rituals. They will pay enormous dividends… the fulfillment of your wildest dreams!
So once you have your dreams and goals in mind let them sail away into the abyss of the universe. Great! Now you can stop focusing on them, come back to the reality of today and start focusing on the things you can control by practicing the 4 tips above. You are now set on the collision course of your present and future self.
