Leave Me Alone, I Am Trying To Achieve My Dream
I was talking with a colleague recently who was telling me about how difficult it is for her to stay focused on her initiative at times. She was telling me how frustrating it is for her because she just can’t get any traction. It seems that every time she tries to get going with something, someone needs something from her or a situation pops up that demands attention or something else comes up that just seems to be more important.
Can you relate?
Years of working with amazing people building out amazing dreams has taught me that you have to decide that your dream is important and make it a priority even with all of these other things going on.
Simpler said that done.
Yet, it CAN be done.
Here are 3 powerful tips to help you stay faithful to your dream, no matter what else or who else is going on around you.
#1 – Return to Your Desire
Go back to the reason you are building this dream in the first place. Remind yourself why you love it, and why it is important for you to achieve it. Look at the difference your dream will make in the lives of others and how there will literally be a hole in our world if you don’t really go for it. Go back and review all the ways your dream will impact you and others for the better. Stoke that flame of desire to such a point that you can’t imagine giving up, and realize that you must stay focused on what you would love! Your dream is counting on you.
#2 – Notice and Celebrate the Small Changes
I have watched people get distracted from their dreams because they believe that nothing is happening. They don’t see any progress so they say, “Why bother?”
Check in with yourself to see if you are guilty of that.
A powerful way to override the feeling that nothing is happening is to pay super close attention to the small wins. It’s a fine art to notice the small shifts along the way and to stay focused on those shifts. Not to notice the small shifts consistently is like planting an oak tree in your backyard and stomping on the sprout while yelling, I don’t want a sprout, I want an oak tree!
You have to have the sprout before you can have the tree. It takes real intention to recognize and celebrate the sprouts on the way to your oak tree. As you do, it’s like pouring rich nutrients into your growth, which, in turn, supports you in staying focused on your dream.
#3 – Remember the Origin of Your Desire
Remember that your desire did not originate from you. It is Source Energy itself seeking to express in a much more expansive way through your desire. It is the way that Spirit seeks a richer, freer, fuller expression by means of you living your dream. When you realize where your desire comes from, you realize two things: first, that you have an accountability to living into that desire, and second, that you are not alone in your journey of creating your dream.
As you recognize the origin of your desire, you become aware that there truly is a power at work in your life and on your behalf that you can trust and rely on. The more in touch you are with this power, the more focused you become on your dream because you realize you are Life’s dream expressing.
