Within our hearts, our dreams are waiting for us to discover.
“Listen to your heart’s desires”
I’ve done several posts about Vision Boarding which can really help us notice the dreams that are hiding in our ‘blind spot’. They are there all the time but maybe we just haven’t recognised them.
Maybe you’ve done some soul searching and you now know what your dreams and goals are but for some reason you are prevaricating and not moving forward to achieve them?
Often, we know where we want to be, we know what the end goal is that we want to achieve but it seems impossible and there are too many things standing in the way… We’re too busy or we haven’t got enough money etc. etc. etc…….
Let me share with you THE SECRET….
How quickly we move toward our dreams is up to us. Standing still though is not an option if we want to turn our dreams into reality….

One Piece At A Time!
(Before I get reported for cruelty to animals.. Please be assured that I’m definitely Not For ‘eating’ elephants – they are one of my favourite mammals – wise and family orientated and certainly to be protected!)
My point is, that no matter how LARGE or DAUNTING the task, chunking it down into smaller goals makes it feel more achievable and easier to take that first step.
Once I’ve moved out of my ‘blind spot’ and recognised one of my goals/dreams (and they get added to.. they aren’t necessarily all ‘fixed in stone’), I create a ‘Focus Dream Board’ 5 Steps to Create Your ‘Focus’ Vision Board and then I start my Dream Plan Book…. (Watch this space for future post coming soon on …. How To Create a Dream Plan Book)
So for example, we may have a dream of ‘travelling the world’ but we haven’t yet got the funds in the bank to be able to achieve this. It feels ‘impossible’ and therefore we take no action.
However, it doesn’t cost anything to start researching which countries you would love to visit or to plan the route you would take. It doesn’t cost anything to ‘price it up’ and start to put plans into writing.. how would you travel? plane/ferry/train/car – how much would that cost?
If we know what our dream/goal is, regardless of how BIG or small that dream is and whatever it is, we can start to write down our plans. Doing this will make our dreams ‘feel real’ and achievable.
Once we start to plan it, it feels ‘BELIEVABLE’ and once we believe it could be a real possibility, we start to notice OPPORTUNITIES that have been hiding in our ‘blind spot’ alongside our ‘dreams’… and suddenly the MOMENTUM starts to build, we get EXCITED and can feel that ‘inner stirring’ within us……. Yep… that feeling of the ‘Brilliance Within’ that is bursting to reveal itself externally……..
How slowly or how quickly we move is up to us.. the critical thing though is that we ‘do move’ and we don’t become rooted in one spot…
We never know what is waiting round the next corner and I realise how much time I’ve wasted over the years, holding myself back through ‘fear of the unknown’. However, I’m determined that every day, I now take some action toward ensuring I fulfil my dreams and don’t look back on my life with regret for the dreams, goals and ambitions I didn’t achieve..
