Dream. Courage. Action
These are three words that I am madly in love with. Want to know why? I believe that these three little words can make the difference between existing and thriving. As long as you don’t forget them, it may mean the difference between an exceptional life and a mediocre one, a life well-lived, or just getting by.
I’m terrified of getting to the end of my life and having regrets. Not of the things I’ve done, but of the things I left undone. Most of us live life as if we’ve got unending years to pursue our dreams and make good shit happen. I’m starting to realize that a lifetime is fleeting. I’m starting to realize that I, like many of you, may not ever do all the wonderful things I want to do in my life.
So before this becomes depressing rather than inspiring, let’s get back to those 3 magical words and back to purposefully creating our lives.
Dream. Do you do it? Do you dream big enough?
Your life is yours and it’s up to you to live it in a way that is fulfilling for you. That means ditching everyone else’s expectations and finding your path. Give yourself permission to dream as big and wild as you like. Own your life!
Courage. Have you got it? Do you need more of it?
Living a full life means you’ll have to become a bit of a risk-taker, willing to try different things. You might need to awaken your courage but don’t try and fool yourself into saying you don’t have any. If you have a dream inside of you then the courage and drive to bring it to life is inside of you as well.
Action. Is this where you get stuck?
Taking action on your dream is where most people come undone. It seems like a great idea until you have to actually make the changes and take a chance. This is where many opt for safety instead and settle for mediocrity. It’s so tempting to put it on the backburner when you think you have a lifetime to do it and you can do it later when conditions are better.
If you’ve come this far, dreaming your dream and finding the courage to go for it, DO NOT stop here. Take your beautiful dream and make a plan for it and start taking action on it every day. Even if it’s the tiniest of steps in that direction, done every day will keep your dream alive and build momentum.
Starting TODAY, what action can you take to get closer to your dream? There is no better time to begin, no other day or year where it will be easier, nobody else who can do it for you.
