HOW TO MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. Sometimes in life we get distracted by, well, life. We forget about our passions and what matters most. We put things in place of people and cherish them more. We try to obtain things to attract more people and end up pushing them away instead. What if we had more time to focus on what really matters, like chasing our dreams and finally catching them? Wouldn’t that make us happy? Let me share with you a story…
Updated on March 4, 2020
Not too long ago, I dreamt of a happy story. A happy life. A life full of passion, exciting adventures, good people, good food and being able to live in my dream. I wrote down my passions and what I wanted to achieve and the dates by which I’d achieve them. I wrote them down and didn’t care about how silly they might sound to other people because they were dreams that were important to me.
HOW I MADE MY DREAMS COME TRUE. First on the list was to lose over 50 lbs. In 2015, I was over 50 lbs. overweight. I knew I needed to change but I wasn’t for sure how to change and how to stick to that change. Today I have lost over 50 lbs. and workout 3 times a week (most weeks 🙂 ) and enjoy a lifestyle I envisioned I would. I am not perfect but I am perfect enough for me. I workout and I eat a clean, plant-based diet. It took a lot of work but I was able to achieve my desired body weight by envisioning myself already at the body I wanted to have. I told myself I loved myself everyday in the mirror and I loved myself unconditionally. I wasn’t hard on myself if I slipped up and I wasn’t hard on myself if I missed a day of running or going to the gym.
I just changed my mindset about weight loss to continue to see the changes I wanted to see in my body.
It took work, dedication and my vision to the new me to get to where I am now. I am still on my journey as this is a lifestyle change, not a fad diet. Along this journey I will reach greater heights and achieve even more goals.

Secondly, I wanted someone to share my life with. I envisioned what my ideal dream guy would look like from the color of his hair to his build. After determination and focus on my goal, I finally met him. We met at an airport and have been inseparable since. He is my dream guy and I love him so much.
Next on the list was to run a successful six figure online business. Since meeting my guy and losing weight, I have been successful with implementing a business online which my guy actually helped me to streamline. I shared my dream with him and it’s doing well, making well over six figures a year in profit.

Besides those dreams coming true, there are countless others. You’re probably saying to yourself right now, “you make it sound so easy”. Well, that’s because (drum roll), it is. I am not saying to think about something today and by tomorrow it will come true. I’m not saying that at all. What I am saying, is that if you focus on a goal and write down your dreams and envision yourself living those dreams, along with putting in the action to obtain those dreams, those dreams will come true. There is no way they cannot.
Let me explain in more detail…
There is a power greater than ourselves and a power that brings to us what we seek. Our thoughts equal things. Our thoughts are energy. With energy, whether it be positive or negative (let’s say energy in this example are our thoughts; so positive or negative thoughts), we attract to us that energy that we put out. Let’s say for example, we thought about having a salad for lunch and were driving around looking for a place that offers salads. Suddenly, you’ll soon realize, places that offer salads will start coming up. It’s because you are attracting that energy to yourself and you want a salad. You’ll soon start seeing exactly what you asked for.
This is also true for things we do not want. Let’s say we are running late for an appointment and are hoping not to get stuck in traffic. Ever find yourself stuck in traffic or delayed by some way? It’s because you attracted that energy. How, you ask? Well, by thinking about it. You can avoid these types of negative experiences and learn even more about avoiding negative energy.
With this power that you have, you can create the life you dream of. Whatever you desire in your life, it can all be yours. Whether that’s a better career, or a better home or better body. Whatever you want, you have the power to achieve that goal. I am living proof of it and so are countless other people around the world. You don’t have to be wealthy or special in anyway. Everyone has the power and ability to make their life better.
Once upon a time, I worked in Corporate America. I had a six figure career. According to people looking at me from the outside, I had it all, you could say. I just wasn’t happy. To those around me, I was extremely blessed, happy, lucky and living the dream. I was able to provide for my family, for myself and I was able to help fund my six figure online business. I was able to do a lot of things.
The only thing was that I wasn’t 100% happy. When I was at work I felt like I was killing my soul. My soul was tortured by not being able to use it’s full potential of doing extraordinary things. I felt I was called to do something else – to help people in a different way. I felt I was called to help people live out their dreams as well.
I had so many dreams and ambitions and being in the role I was in was not for me. Now I am not saying that Corporate America is a bad place; I am saying, it simply was not the end result for me. Just a stepping stone along my path.
I eventually got out and I was able to live my dream full-time. Writing, creating, coaching and traveling are now what I do full-time. I had an exit strategy and planned accordingly to set myself up for success. I’m now sharing with you what I did in order to make my dreams a living reality.
Have a plan
In order to be successful you must have a plan. You can’t just quit your job and say, “now what?” That would be disastrous. Know what it is you want to do. Maybe it’s writing for a living or traveling the world. Whatever it is that you want to do, you need to come up with a plan. Plan a 30, 60 and 90 day plan. Write down your goals and how you aspire to achieve them. Take small steps. They’re easier to accomplish. Planning to earn $1 million in 1 day is no small feat; but having a 2 year plan to earn $1 million is quite feasible.
Don’t give up when you don’t see results right away. Everyone’s path is different and just because someone else had rapid success doesn’t mean you will, too. Stay consistent with yourself and stay focused on your progress. I know it’s tempting to see what Suzie Q is doing but Suzie Q is not you. Focus on being your best self because your end goal is to realize your dreams coming true.
Don’t Stop – Ever
The toughest part of any journey is being persistent – even when things get tough. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cried myself to sleep because I didn’t make money one day or because a deal fell through. There have been plenty of obstacles in my life that I had to overcome to make it happen for me.
The one key driver that helped me grow my business was persistence. I didn’t stop. If I fell down, I got myself back up. If I felt sad or down, I reached out to a group of supportive friends to help me through it. I reached out to a mentor to guide me through it. I just didn’t give up.
Sometimes we need that – we need that helping hand and that small, still voice to tell us that everything is going to be alright. And you know what? It will be.
Everything. Will. Be. Alright.
Don’t ever give up and keep pushing forward. Missed a day of working out? Don’t sweat it, get back out there the next day. Didn’t finish a task on your to-do list? Not to worry – take a small break and get back out there and tackle your goals. We all need a little push to keep us going. We’re only human after all. Being human is only for the strong and the courageous and that’s why we’re here. To do the unthinkable. To be the impossible. To push beyond barriers and beliefs because we truly can do anything that we put our minds to. We are limitless beings. So remember that you are limitless – and you got this!
