Dreams are the bridge between the world we know and the world we want. But how can we use our dreams to live the life we deserve and desire? The following five tips are excerpts from Marcia Wieder’s eBooks and are a good start to living your dreams.
Exercise your imagination.
Think of your imagination as a muscle. Exercising that muscle makes it stronger, allowing you to do more.
Give yourself permission to dream.
Don’t hold yourself back from dreaming by rationalizing your dreams away. If you catch yourself saying “I’m not ____ enough,” stop and think about why that’s not true.
You can’t live your dreams if you don’t take the initiative and necessary steps toward achieving your goals.
Overcome your fear of disappointment.
Mark Twain said, “If you think you can or if you think you can’t, you’re probably right.” Change your belief from “life will disappoint me” to “life is filled with miracles.” If you’re never disappointed, you aren’t a dreamer— you’re a realist.
Maintain positive focus.
Focus on your desire rather than your doubt, and your dreams will take care of themselves. If you sincerely want to be a dreamer and have wonderful dreams, then it will be.
But, perhaps most importantly, if you can’t sleep you can’t dream. In order to get a full night’s sleep, it is vital that you construct a positive sleep environment. That means establishing a consistent sleep routine and maintaining a comfortable sleep environment. By going to sleep around the same time every night, and performing a similar routine around sleep time, you prepare yourself mentally and physically for sleep.
