“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”
Have you got clarity on your goals?
Have you got a big dream?
It’s amazing how many people don’t achieve what they say they want to achieve simply because they haven’t really set their intentions.
It’s good to start by having a dream for your work and for your business. It may seem like a time wasting exercise, ‘don’t daydream’ most of us were told at school and yet being able to dream something brings it closer to our reality.
Einstein was a dreamer, he probably would have been labelled as a child with learning difficulties if he had lived in our time, as he didn’t learn to read and write till quite late, but he daydreamed, and his greatest breakthrough was the theory of relativity – it came to him when he was daydreaming about what it would be like to ride a beam of light to the end of the universe.
Dreaming is a right brain function and you shouldn’t waste the possibility of harnessing your imagination and visualisation on your sleeping hours, absolutely take some time out to dream, get yourself into a relaxed state perhaps by taking some deep breaths, it might help to imagine a white light flowing through your body enabling you to feel completely relaxed.
“I dream my painting and then paint my dream”
Vincent van Gogh
From that state you can take your mind on a journey and ask yourself what is it that you really want?
Don’t be too woolly about it though, if a genie or fairy godmother was able to deliver your dream exactly as you had asked for it, make sure there’s no room for error! Don’t make your one big goal – a space to work in….you may be given the edge of someone’s garage workbench, don’t say ‘I want to earn more money’…you may find your pay increases by just a few pounds…be specific, and if it’s a dream for your work or your business then make sure its detailed and will bring you the work life balance you really want.
Don’t forget to commit it to paper too, mind maps, affirmations and vision boards are all brilliant to remind us where we are headed.
At a Hay House conference recently one of the speakers gave the analogy of getting into a car and just setting off to go somewhere new, with no particular destination in mind, the truth is if you don’t put the postcode into the Sat Nav or open the map, who knows where you will end up!
