That dream of yours that you keeping having…
….To quit your job and make your online business a success
….To become a full time freelancer
….To write that book
….To land that promotion
….To be a full time mama
You know the one that you keep thinking about when you allow yourself to daydream.
Well, I believe that it’s there for a reason.
Not only that….
I believe that you’re the exact person to:
- Make it happen
- Deliver that message
- Create that beautiful thing
- Teach that modality
- Be a pioneer in your area
- Make that dream manifest
And you can do that with what you have today.
Once you see and claim that dream of yours it’s time to act accordingly.
Take action. Face your fears. Do the work. Having fun along the way of course!
In order to make your dreams happen, you’ve got to take action on the right dream for you.
Here are 3 things you can do to get started on making your dream a reality.
Thing #1: Validate that dream by getting to the heart of why that dream is there
The dream you’re having may be 100% accurate and correct or maybe it’s just trying to wake you up to something in your life that you need to pay attention to.
For example, are you dreaming of quitting your job and starting your own online business?
Maybe that’s the exact thing you should do, or perhaps you simply need to look at how you can incorporate some more freedom into your life today.
What’s at the heart of that dream of yours?
Many people think they’re dreams are crazy and don’t take action because they seem too pie in the sky. It makes sense – you’re a practical and sensible woman!
But rather than discounting that dream completely, dig a little deeper and ask what about that dream is really important to you. That’s your first clue to making some changes that are really going to make you happy in the short and long term.
Thing #2: Pay attention to what your Chief Risk Officer (aka inner critic or ego) is saying about your dream
All of us have ideas and dreams….the people who go out and act on those ideas and make those dreams happen are able to move past that pesky little negative voice that tells them that they’re not the person to do it.
Rather than ignoring that voice or squashing it down, give it some airtime. What does your inner critic have to say?
Get it all down on paper. Look at it objectively. Is there anything you need to pay attention to? Take note and toss the rest of it in the bin. Literally.
Thing #3: Get clear on what your first easy action step is to explore that dream further
Once you’ve done the above, you want to start filling in the gaps on what it really takes to make your dream happen. What do you need to know about this path for you? How can you get the answers that you need?
If for example you want to quit your job and start your own online business your first easy action step could be to have a coffee with 3 friends who’ve done just that. Or do some research on some entrepreneurs you admire.
If you want to quit your job and become a full time mum you can look at your finances to see whether it’s financially doable or what you need to save to test out being a stay at home mum for a year.
You get the gist!
Rather than having a whole strategic plan mapped out…take one action step to get you one step closer to your dreams this week.
Every little bit of action adds up!
What big dream are you playing with? What action are you committing to taking to make it happen?
