I can’t tell you how many people I have talked to that have said to me, “Where has the time gone. I wish I would have accomplished this or that.” The truth is yes, you are older. Yes, you have lost some time. The good news is, it is not too late to start dreaming about your goals and what you want out of life.
Sometimes the problem is we have suppressed our dreams/desires for so long that a lot of us can’t remember what we want or how to even start to set goals.
We have come up with a few ways to help get you dreaming again. Hope you enjoy!
If you know your goals: Write your goals down!!!!! This is a MUST for me. I am the most forgetful person and ever since I got pregnant it is even worse!!! There is a saying that states, “The weakest ink is stronger than the strongest mind.” This is sooooo true! If you don’t write down your goals then they could get lost or forgotten when the next emergency in your life happens. Be safe, save it in INK!
If you don’t know where to start with your goals: Pretend life was a game. Who would you be? What would you do? Pretend that you had every skill, ability or resource at your fingertips. Brainstorm what you want in life/out of life. I am giving you permission to daydream a little. This can take a little creativity, so be creative and don’t limit yourself in achieving your goal. Remember that your goals/dreams don’t need to be realistic and can actually be quite comical, you are not committing yourself to any one goal. This will hopefully get you to know yourself better and help you find what you truly want out of life.
If you know where to start with your goals, but are afraid: Give yourself permission to THINK BIG!!! What would your goals be if you knew success was guaranteed? Would you be a billionaire? A famous person? Own a TON of land? What is the one thing that when you think about it your palms get a little bit sweaty? Even if you think that you could never in a million years achieve anything close to your ideal goal, give yourself permission to dream and remember the saying, “Expect little and, as a result, receive little.” If you expect more of what you want then you will get more of what you want. Allow yourself to at least dream/know what you want.
I hope this will help you in dreaming again. So many people have stopped dreaming in life and are selling themselves short. Don’t let that be you!!! Never stop dreaming.
