Dare to live without limits Week of 9/02/19

You must dream it before you can get it

All accomplishments start with a dream. Dreams precede reality. You have to see it in your mind before you can make it happen. Dreams are motivational. They put objectives into your mind. These objectives are the first step in programming your mind to achieve your dreams.
Dreams enable you to break through limitations. Dreams have no constraints. A dream preceded every technological and societal breakthrough. Someone had to have a dream of what was possible, before it was possible.
In your dreams nothing is impossible. Each dream is a movie where you create the plot, and the ending. You can accomplish anything and overcome whatever obstacles you encounter. Your dreams can contain unlimited scenarios.
Dreams are exciting. In them you can explore, discover, and experience anything you can imagine. You can replay your favorite scenes over and over. Your dreams stimulate all of your senses.
Dreams give you direction. They keep you pointed towards your desired objective. If you drift off course, your dreams will get you back on track. Dreams also help you realign after any detours you are forced to take.
Dreams program your mind to bring them to reality. Your mind works non-stop to accomplish what it is programmed to do. Dreams keep your mind focused on what it needs to do. The more you dream, the more you direct your mind.
Dreams help you grow. Dreaming about what you want pulls you out of stagnation. Rather than resigning yourself to remaining in your current circumstances, dream about your preferred situation. This focuses your mind on where you want to be, instead of being stuck on where you are.
Dreams create positive changes by moving you forward, rather than becoming bitter about your situation. Negative emotions impede problem solving. Resentment generates progress, blocking excuses. Dreams provide the incentive to succeed. Successful people are typically big dreamers.
You should also have big dreams. You don’t have to settle for average or mediocre. Set your sights high. Purge any feelings you may have that you are not worthy, or don’t deserve success. You don’t have to feel guilty for following you own path.
Dreams don’t require approval. What you dream about is totally up to you. You don’t need to get anyone’s opinion as to the validity of your dreams. Ironically, dreamers are often criticized for their pursuits.
Pursuing your dreams leads to incredible experiences. You will be amazed that you can do things you never thought possible. However, nothing will happen until you take positive action to achieve your objective. Success occurs one step at a time.
Cut free from the past. Your past doesn’t determine your future. Don’t allow your past to pollute your future. Any bad experiences you may have had need not diminish your dreams. If something didn’t work out the way you expected, figure out what went wrong and why, make the necessary adjustments, and then give it another go.
It’s not unusual for success to be achieved only after several attempts. Accomplishing your dreams requires determination and persistence. Never, ever giving up is essential. The phrase, “where there’s a will, there’s a way,” should be part of your mental programming.
Don’t procrastinate. Don’t make excuses. Don’t allow anyone to discourage you. Get started today. Don’t wait for tomorrow. No step forward is too small or insignificant. As you make progress, keep a laser like focus on your dream.
Taking action is essential. Without action, nothing happens. A dream, without action, is just a wish. Wishing, without taking action, is pointless. You must be willing to put in the effort required to make your dreams turn into reality.
