To believe in dreams is foofy nonsense right? The power of belief is actually some serious stuff. It’s easy to fall into the trap that imagination and creative play are useless concepts from our childhood. In today’s world, the prominent message continues to be that we must hustle and work ourselves into the ground to become successful and lead a more satisfying life.
Often when we relax, play, and unwind our mind wanders. It gives us ideas and creative insight to solving problems, becoming someone bigger than ourselves, and many other messages we may brush off because they seem unattainable. I believe those messages are usually leading us to the life we are meant to live. So why do we squash those ideas down? Most likely because of the other voices we hear…of our parents, what we believe stability to look like, imposter syndrome and whatever else is in your head.
What if we listened to those messages?
Where would they lead us? As someone who listens hard to those messages, I can tell you they’ve led me to places unexpected where I found myself growing in different ways. I’m still growing and couldn’t imagine myself stagnant in the places I once was.
The power of belief can take us to some amazing places if it’s something we want to pursue. Dreaming is pretty awesome. It’s how ideas are born and later morphed into reality. Anything you own, items you use or things you do on the daily were once believed into existence by someone somewhere. And during that time, those creative people who brought this ideas to life were also once trolled, ridiculed and put down.
What do you believe in for yourself? Are you ready for the next step? Once the seeds are in your hand, it’s time to plan that garden…
This is where people get tripped up and give up. Dreaming is easy. It’s nice to dream and imagine the outcome. Getting there is a whole other thing that involves planning and hard work. It’s like when people imagining themselves getting fit and wearing those jeans from 10yrs ago. Then when it’s time to plan and develop a new lifestyle that includes daily movement and a new way of eating the dream can become nothing more than itself.
Please remember that you must climb the mountain to get the best view.
Hard work will pay off if you:
- Believe in your idea
- Set yourself up for success
- Stay consistent in your progress
Make a plan to get dirty, plant those seeds and water them daily. All that work that goes into your “garden” is what changes your belief or dream into a reality.
Maybe not immediately, but overtime you will see the flowers of your efforts. Taking a step today is believing in tomorrow. Believing in something better, bigger and finding some joy in the journey along the way. Become who you want to be, no matter how small a step you take each day. Believing in yourself is the first step…the rest will soon be history.
You are unstoppable!
