What do you want your life to be about? What are your goals? What would make you happy? Have you ever thought about those questions? You should. Because you can make your dreams become reality.
We can all be so much more than what we think you can be.
It took me a long time to realize this. I do not think I am alone in that regard. This isn’t a concept that is easy for most of us to accept.
It is far easier to accept our life as it is.
As we age, though, we add more wisdom to our treasure chest. And one of the things I learned as I aged was that I could have anything I wanted.
Now, that’s not to say it will be handed to you. There is no free lunch in life.
With the right attitude, belief and work ethic, though, the sky truly is the limit.
Three Helpful Things to Make Your Dreams a Reality
Many years ago, I struggled through a personal crisis that shook me to my core. I took a self-help class and immersed myself in 16 months of education. Three pieces of self-help material helped me form this belief that we can be more than we think.
What the Bleep …
The documentary debunks this idea that we cannot change who we are, that we are resigned to our fate. It tells us that we can change the way our mind works. And when we change our mind, we change our choices. And when we change our choices, we change our lives.
It isn’t easy, though. When people fall into chaos, they give up hope. They go back to their secure way of doing things. They do not want to give up their old way of life, to which they are attached.
However, if we commit ourselves to gathering knowledge and pursuing new experiences, we can develop our brains to see things differently. We will realize we have enormous potential to change our pattern of behavior that is easy to fall into.
The documentary reminds us that we need to get away from this idea of separateness. We might think that we have no impact on this earth, but that is not true.
We are all co-creators of the future. No one is absent from this. And we must all do our part to be our best selves and contribute in a way that will produce a better future for all of us.
