Many of you know that for the last 4 years, I have devoted my life to dream chasing. It was one of the SCARIEST, but also the BEST decisions I ever made and I have NO regrets!
I wanted to share a few lessons I’ve learned along the way:
- Don’t give up. There are guaranteed to be hard times – even when you are pursuing what you LOVE. The key here is to try to focus on what you can learn from each hiccup and set-back and know that all the tough times WILL be worth it when you are living your dream!
- The universe will test your resolve. I believe that some of the challenges along the way are sent to test us – to see how much we REALLY want it. This is DEFINITELY not the time to pack it in and run away with your tail between your legs. If you live through these challenges, you will be so much stronger to face whatever life throws at you.
- Once you have achieved your dream and started living it, your life won’t be perfect – you will still have ups and downs and the usual daily challenges that we all experience. The key here is to focus on all that you have achieved and think about what you would have been doing if you didn’t take that leap of faith to change things….? I also recommend doing a daily gratitude journal which not only helps for a multitude of reasons that I won’t go into here – it definitely helps you appreciate how far you’ve come and how different your life now is. I wrote a blog about gratitude, you can read it here…..
- Finally, I think some people are afraid of what will happen once their dream has come true. I have learned that we all have more than 1 x dream inside of us and I am living testament to the fact that once you have made one dream come true, another one will surface from deep inside you and you can start taking steps to live that one too! ?
It’s one of the most exciting feelings. To have that dream start to make itself known in your heart/gut – wherever you feel it. It’s also a wonderful feeling to start pondering how you will start to realise that dream too.
Imagine living your life making dream after dream come true….. what an AMAZING life that would be……. well, what are you waiting for…..?
