Dreams come in all forms. You can dream of becoming financially able to afford something; of becoming more confident; or even letting go of anger and resentment. No matter which term you prefer – dreams, goals or desires – here is a simple recipe for moving towards what you want:
Passionately want it. Write it down in your journal. Then, prepare yourself for its manifestation.
Research says you’e more likely to stick with dreams or goals that are important to you. So, be passionate about your goals! Passion keeps you engaged beyond setbacks and frustrations, and, most importantly, acts as a reminder to keep looking forward.
Writing down your goals and desires sends the message to your life that they are important. Many people claim to be committed to their dreams, yet never invest the added effort of writing them down. This added effort creates the first place where your dream becomes concrete. Let that piece of paper act as a placeholder and magnet for what you want to see, realize or become. . (By the way, if you don’t know what you’re passionate about, make identifying your passion your first goal, and start by writing that in your journal.)
Preparing yourself to be ready when your dreams manifest is where inner fitness work is most essential. Ask yourself, often: How must I grow? Who must I become? What must I learn, and what must I let go of to experience the life of my dreams?
Asking these questions and putting in the work they suggest prepares you for that inevitable day when your dreams, goals or desires depart from your journal and enter your life.
