How dreams become accomplished goals

Dream it

Dream big
Dreams are important, they’re vital for us planning a future which we would like to experience. As you know, dreams come to life through action. Though sometimes we get lost in the action and forget the beauty of the dream. Once we’ve achieved our dream we don’t necessarily notice we’ve achieved them, they’ve kind of sneaked upon us as time goes by and our consious has moved on to new dreams. We might not notice that dreams do come true.

Remind youself 
Remind your consious of your achievements. As an example – I’ve been living in Australia now for over 4 years and after my first year here my dream was to get permanent residency so I can live here as an Australian. Now I did consiously take action towards that dream and make a series of small decisions to assist me on my path to fulfilling that dream. Though now, 3 years later, when I can finally submit my application for PR, which is the last step that has to happen before I get my PR, it feels so simple and easy that I could have forgotten that it was once only a beautiful dream and I had no clue of how I was going to achieve this dream. I had to step back for a second and remind myself that I am just one tiny step away from reaching my dream which was SO big at the time of creation. This gives me a sense of huge gratitude.

Stop to acknowledge
When we allow ourselves to see the goals we reach as once being only beautiful dreams, we start living in a reality where dreams do come true. Why does this make a difference? When we keep track of our achievements by stopping and acknowledging ourselves, noticing that we are fulfilling on our dreams, we help our unconsious to create connections where it becomes a norm to achieve dreams, instead of seeing things as just something that happened. As these unconsious connections become stronger and stronger by every acknowledged dream that comes true, it allows us to create and believe in even greater dreams and have more of what we want in our lives more easily. When we recognise what otherwise might be overseen as something that “just happened”, as something we actually dreamt once and made come true, we start seeing how powerful we really are with dreaming things that become accomplished goals.

Dream it, do it, believe it and dream more.

You have to be Off in order to be On

On-Off

 

I’m alive
Wow – I know you were thinking I must have disappeared, got enough of this blogging, maybe even forgot about us. Well you’re right, I did disappear, for a very important reason – to be off. I made a conscious decision after I traveled to Finland and held a workshop there in January this year, that I needed to get clear on what I want to do and who I want to work with. So I decided to stop everything that was me just doing stuff for the sake of doing it and channel all that energy into me working on getting clear on what I really want to be sharing with the world. It has taken me 6 months and so much has happened just from that tiny decision.

 

Off means On
When I allowed myself to switch to off I started feeling more clear. I dove down into studying what I love – which is personal development, I created a loving and supportive relationship with my partner, I connected with people who assisted in my clarity and my mission. I started finding all the puzzle pieces which have allowed me to start putting together my puzzle. I saw how important it is to be off in order for us to be on again. Like a light switch, it can’t be turned on, if it has not first been turned off.

 

Take your time
No one but yourself can give you permission to be off. It doesn’t need to be 6 months or a year, it can be one evening or a weekend, or even just an hour. It depends on what you need. Though don’t wait for anyone else to give you the permission to turn off, it is you and you only who can allow yourself to turn off. And it is a good feeling turning that switch to on when it has been off for a while, as the energy behind the light is so much clearer now. Because it is those moments off, that make those moments on so much more valuable.

 

So go take some time off and find out how much more on you can be!

Health is who you’re being

Health is who you are being

It is hard until it’s not
In the last 12 months I’ve given up both alcohol and coffee all together (after binging on both for some time) and here’s the thing, it was not easy…until, it was. You see, when I thought it was hard, it was hard, when I realised it is easy it was easy. As you already know, whatever we focus on in life we get more out of. Then ask yourself, are you focusing on how hard or challenging something is, or are you focusing on how easy and rewarding something is…? Example, are you focusing on how unhealthy you are, or on how healthy you can be?

What you focus on you get
The more I was focusing on something I wanted, that I did not have yet, the more of the ‘wanting’ I was getting, not the having… I was wanting to get rid of coffee from my diet all together, and therefore I was only getting more of the feeling of “wanting to get rid of it” and it was frustrating, making it challenging for me to actually be without coffee. Until, I started appreciating my current situation and the fact that it is ok that I had not yet stopped drinking coffee.

Appreciate where you’re at
The moment I gave myself permission and felt it was ok that I had coffee and alcohol as part of my diet right now, and shifted my focus to having more of the things in my life which aligned with the being I felt I was inside, like water, fruit juices, fresh coconut, and chai teas (all of which I love), I noticed my needs shifted. Very soon I was reaching for a glass of water instead of a glass of wine, and went to pick up a fruit juice in the morning instead of my coffee. The simple appreciation for the now and the permission of everything being ok as it is can make wonders as you connect more with who you are inside and let your being shine through to your choices in the outside world.

Commit to your life

cook your life

Make a decision 
You know those moments when you feel absolutely clear? Like when you have a shopping list and enter the supermarket and know exactly what to buy to cook the dish you’re making for dinner, yes? Well that’s what a decision feels like. When you make one, things become clear. The decision to go and buy the ingredients needed to cook your dish is easy when you have a list to follow. Similarly outcomes are easy to obtain, when you make a decision and get clear on the steps needed to get there. 

Go shopping
It’s great to have a clear list of ingredients needed, though to create the dish, you physically need to go to the supermarket and buy the ingredients. You take action on your list. You are the one who can take the decision to go shopping, to make it happen for you. It will require some time and money, though without the dish, you’ll go hungry and eventually starve. If you like starving, then keep doing so, if you like to enjoy the dish and cooking it, then invest in what’s needed.

Commit to you
You’re here on this planet to do great things. You might or might not yet know what those great things are, though you can be certain that every commitment you make to take action on something that you inherently want, will take you closer to figuring out even more of what those great things are. When a commitment is made from Your heart, you commit to Your life. You commit to living it the way you want it to be lived and to be the person you want to be. Find your recipe of greatness, go shopping for the resources you need and commit to cooking the life you want yourself to be enjoying.

Now knowing committing to yourself is just as easy as writing a shopping list, what can you imagine yourself doing now, over the Christmas break…

“Commitment is an act, not a word” – Jean-Paul Sartre

Appreciate wealth and you will receive

wealth

Law of attraction
If you’ve read the book The Secret you know what I’m talking about, if not, just imagine you know what I’m talking about. We manifest things in our lives by what we consistently do both consciously and unconsciously 24/7. They become our habits and behaviours and therefore also our reality. What we manifest (both consciously and unconsciously) is attracted to us. Be aware of what you manifest and what you are attracting to you. Concentrate on what you want rather than what you don’t want, as whatever we concentrate and focus on is attracted to us.

Appreciation of wealth
Likewise, without an appreciation for wealth and respect for it, the attraction of it will be challenging, as whatever you hold dear you manifest. When we start appreciating wealth, respecting it and treating it as something we’d enjoy having more of in our lives, we start attracting more of it into our lives. If you think wealth is bad just becuase you’re conditioned to think so, well then stop right now. Wealth, like everything else, just is. There’s no good or bad with it, it is just what you say it is. Start allowing yourself to become wealthy by holding wealth dear to you.

Know your intention 
…with being wealthy. When you have all the wealth in the world, what are you going to do? Ask yourself, my intention with having all the wealth in the world is to … . You’ll notice, when your intention and purpose is greater than your desire to just simply be wealthy, the universe will conspire to bring you resources that will move you closer to your intention. Wealth, then, will just be an automatic side product. As your soul and intention/purpose are aligned and you act from a pure heart with love for your being, you will receive.

How dreams turn into reality

dreams

Dream
Have you ever achieved anything without first imagining it, creating it in your mind? You might not always be consciously aware that you’re imagining things or creating them in your mind, though unconsciously there’s activity happening all the time. With dreaming we can start shaping our reality. A dream becomes a goal, becomes reality. Dreaming is vital.

Set a goal
Though, if you stay in the dream and never create a goal out of it, the chances are you’ll just keep dreaming and escape your reality, spending your time in a fantasy world. The next step after dreaming is to take the dream and make it into an actual goal. Define it, create necessary steps to get there and put a time stamp on it. These three things will help you become clear on what you need to do and by when.

Take action
Yes, life rewards action. A dream is great, a plan is necessary, action is unreplasable. Just start, with even the smallest thing, make the first move. If your steps feel too big, break them down into even smaller steps. What can you do today that will move you a tiny bit closer to your goal, and eventually your dream? After the first step is taken, your dream has started shaping into reality, it has come into existence. This is how dreams turn into reality.

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney

Stip everything, and left is only you

 

Find answers

I come across once in a while people who feel uncomfortable discussing spirituality, soul and our inner most passion and inspiration. Mostly it is because they simply haven’t yet touched their own soul, meaning they haven’t asked the right questions of themselves that would bring light to the answers they already have within them. To find answers you must ask questions first, that’s something I assume you agree with. Then, the quality of your answers is determined by the quality of your questions.

 

Stripping away

The higher quality questions we ask ourselves, the more light we bring to our soul. Question after question, answer after answer, we strip away attachments we have to beliefs of our reality, emotions, conditioning, habits and our complete internal representation of the world around us. This is when we touch our soul.

 

Then there was only I

When we act from a place of our soul, our acts are not directed by what we’ve been conditioned to do and believe, we act from our inner most inspiration and love. This happens when we’ve stripped away everything. Left is only I. This inspiration and love is something no one can take away from us because it is not based on anything external, nothing that was not given to you in the first place can be taken away from you. Therefore, it is also something eternal and immortal. We’ve found, call it our true being and purpose/ meaning, or as some would put it – our nothingness.

 

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing” – Socrates

 

How motivation grows into inspiration

Need of Motivation and Inspiration

 

Why you need motivation

Do you, when you feel tired, lost or confused and can’t get moving for a reason or another, that you need motivation to kick off? Most likely yes. When you’re tired, lost or confused and seeking motivation, you’re looking for something that will drive you to start moving, a price that will be worth doing what you’re not getting done at the moment. Motivation, though sometimes perceived as coming from within, is always driven by something outside of your soul, an external factor. You get motivated because you feel there’s something of value to you awaiting once you’ve done what you need to get done. That’s why it will never last.

 

The problem with needing motivation 

Motivation comes from the Latin word “movere” which means to move. Getting motivation is good, it will get you started and when kept alive it will give you results. However, if the factor driving you is taken away, you will lose motivation and you won’t reach your goals. When motivation is external, it is unstable and can be short term. When you feel you need motivation, it does not come from your inner most love for something. If it would come from your inner most love for something, it would be inspiration, and you would feel energised, on track and clear-minded.

 

Inspiration is internal

When you are motivated from within, without needing an external factor to make you move, you’re inspired. Inspiration is the energy created when you touch your soul. Those moments when you’re truly inspired, you don’t need anyone or anything to motivate you, you’re invincible. This is how you know you’re inspired from within. Now, you might need a bit of external motivation to start looking for that source of inspiration within you, but when you’re in touch with your soul and expressing yourself out of it, you don’t need motivation, inspiration will move you automatically and infinitely to where you need to go.

 

“Ordinary riches can be stolen; real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.” – Oscar Wilde

 

Master your purpose

Master your purpose

Know what it is not
Mastering something is so much easier and feels natural to you when what you’re working on mastering is in line with your purpose. People go off studying, practicing and working hard on becoming the best in something that is not in line with their purpose. They end up feeling tired or resentful or angry or simply unfulfilled, as what they’re spending all their energy on mastering, is something that they think is the best thing for them to master. Then, how can you know that what you think is the right thing to master, is actually not the right thing?

Identify your true inspiration
When you are pursuing your purpose and mastering the art of your purpose, there can still be hard work involved, but here’s the difference, it feels fun and exciting. It feels like you’re gaining energy instead of loosing it, you are easily focused, no one needs to drag you out of bed to do it. You have energy, inspiration and willpower to go and be the master of it. And foremost, you can’t help but share with others what you know.

Believe you’re worthy of it
All of us have an intuition, a hunch, if we tap in to it, of what our purpose is. You already know, that you know what it is. However, sometimes we block our way to finding and pursuing our purpose, our mind comes up with excuses why not to pursue mastering it or why something else is a better option for us. In the end of the day, the reason we don’t pursue to master our purpose is because we, for reasons that are individual to each one of us, feel we’re not worthy of it, it’s not ok for us. However, you are worthy of mastering your purpose, you always have been, you just need to allow yourself to believe that you are worthy of it. You can choose to master something that makes you unhappy and unfulfilled, or you can choose to master something that makes you happy and fulfilled. I don’t know about you, but I know what I’d rather be, because I deserve it.

 

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”
- Pablo Picasso

The greatest investment you can make is in yourself

investment

Decide what you want
Before you can master anything you need to decide what you want. Be clear; why do you want it? What will it give you? And what will you be able to do once you have it? Once you’re absolutely clear on this, then ask yourself “who do I need to Be in order to get that?”

Become your future self
Now when you know who you need to Be in order to have what you want, how will you become that? What do you need to do to become your future self? Simple – invest in yourself. When you are ready to give up on things that are not an investment in yourself and instead make an effort to invest in yourself, that’s when change happens. When you are open to proactively change something, you automatically allow change to come to you.

Mastering yourself is an investment for life
Do you live life as an outcome of what is happening around you or do you choose to live as the cause of that outcome? By mastering yourself you become the cause of your life. The greatest investment you can make is in yourself as to master anything you will need to give all you have to achieve it. The more you have of yourself, the more you have to give of yourself to what you want to master. So therefore, the greater your mastery will be. When you invest in something, you get more of it right…so can it be, that when you start proactively investing in yourself, you get more of yourself… Now, I’m not saying that starting with mastering yourself, will have you master everything else you choose to put your mind to with greater results, as isn’t it so, that the driving force of everything around you, is you.

“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.” – Albert Einstein
