Is there something you’ve been dreaming of doing your entire life? You’d like to write a book or travel the whole of South America; maybe you want to start a business or climb Mt. Everest. You’ve been dreaming (and talking) about it for years. But you haven’t actually done anything to get closer to that dream.
If you’ve ever felt stuck, like so many of us have, not knowing what to do, you’re not alone. If you’re someone who likes to put things off until the right time, join the club. We humans love to dream up big ideas just to set them aside to gather dust. Except, we call it ‘waiting for the right time.’
I hate to break it to you, but there is no right time.
There is only now.
However, taking action is easier said than done.
We’ve all experienced the crippling fear that shows up when things are about to get real. The fear that reveals itself as a voice in our heads telling us that we’ll fail, we’ll lose our money, our jobs, etc. If there is one thing you take away from this, it’s that that voice is not You. It’s fear. And fear only exists in our minds, nowhere else.
Fear can only grow if we feed it. And you want to know what fear’s favorite food is? Listening. Believing. When we listen to and believe our fear, it grows.
So how do we begin to ignore that voice? Simple. We crush it.
Self-talk is one way, so is simply ignoring it. Or, you could try something else…
You could dive heart-first into exactly what your fear is telling you not to do.
When we choose to walk boldly into the very things that scare us the most, we send a message to our souls that we are enough. That we are consciously choosing ourselves over our fears.
We spend so much time worrying about all the things that could go wrong. We wonder why we should be the ones to live an amazing life. We ask ourselves, Who am I to follow my dreams?
Who are you not to?
All you have to do is make the decision. Right now. Decide to begin and the rest will unfold naturally. Start now, right where you are.
Sure, you might not have everything you need to go climb Mt. Everest tomorrow. But what if you just took the first step? What if after reading this you decided to go for a walk? And maybe tomorrow you take go on a hike. All you have to do is take the first step. It’s the hardest, but also the most important, action you can take.
Start at the beginning. Use what you have. Do anything you can to get yourself where you want to go.
The first step is deciding to do it. And by deciding I don’t mean, “Okay, yeah, I’ll do it.” I mean making a conscious decision. Making a vow to yourself.
I mean allowing yourself to be afraid and then doing it anyway.
It’s okay to be afraid. Fear is just a reminder that you’re human. But don’t let it stop you from living your life.
If you want to write a book, start on the first page. If you want to travel around the world, make a budget so you can start saving. If you already have the money, book a ticket.
One great way to get started is by creating a vision board for yourself. And if you want to up the game even more, check out a Desire Map MasterMind Movie workshop or retreat where you’ll learn how to take your goals to the next level and start manifesting your dreams in a very real way.
You could spend your entire life coming up with reasons not to do something.
Or, you could take the first step. You could trust yourself enough to know what’s best for you. You could decide that you’re worth it.
You could decide to live the life of your dreams.
Because who are you not to?
