Are You Living the Life You Dreamed of When You Were Little?

PinExt Are You Living the Life You Dreamed of When You Were Little?

It is time to unleash your dreams and pursue your desires!  Are you living your dreams?  Why hold back?  You can overcome any doubts or fears you have, if you press forward.  No one is going to hand you the life you desire on a silver platter, but windowslivewriterwhatarethedesiresofyourheart ea81work 3 Are You Living the Life You Dreamed of When You Were Little?you can achieve whatever it is that you desire.  It is attainable, if you believe in yourself and work at it.  W-O-R-K is a four-letter word for some people, but for others it spells accomplishment and success.  What is the one small action that you could take today toward fulfilling your dream?  It doesn’t have to be a big step.  Just take an action step towards your dream. 

Every big success started as an idea in someone’s mind.

The automobile, the phone, and the computer were all simply ideas that an ordinary human being had before they became the phenomenal successes they are today.  These ideas were no different than the ideas you and I have.  Look at Bill Gates, the world’s richest person according to Forbes, who at 20 had an idea that he sold to a computer company which in short order led to the founding of Microsoft.  When Gates first contacted his prospective buyer, he didn’t have anything more than an idea.  The small action step he took in contacting the computer company to see if they would be interested in his idea started the ball rolling which led from one opportunity to another.  By consistently taking this kind of action, Gates built a net worth that today exceeds $59 billion!

All thoughts are energy. 

In the physical world, potential and kinetic are two types of energy.  A compressed spring stores large amounts of potential energy.  When and if the spring is released, BOING, its potential energy is unleashed as kinetic energy.  Kinetic energy is the work done to propel an object into motion.  Your ideas are like stored up energy that is waiting to be released.  When you take action toward achieving your desires you release the BOING.  The action you take is necessary to unleash the potential energy of your ideas and create momentum.

Momentum builds speed. 

Once you have speed on your side then it is difficult to stop your ideas.  A racing locomotive has a lot of momentum.  It takes a really big obstacle to stop it.  When you do the work necessary to get your ideas in motion, they become like the locomotive.  It is practically impossible to stop them from becoming a success.  How awesome would it be to see your greatest desire with this kind of momentum?  It can happen and it all starts with one little step in the right direction.  It all begins when you do the work.  The movement may be hard to detect at first, but it will build on itself.  Once you get things going they can move quickly.  For really big dreams, it may take months or even years of work to really get moving, but you never know.  The one thing that is certain is that if you don’t take the first step toward your dream, then it won’t ever have a chance.

Can you imagine what you will accomplish if you live your life as Kettering suggests?

Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail.
~Charles Kettering, Inventor

If you believe and act like it is impossible to fail, you will take the steps needed to make your greatest desires a reality.  Where would you be today if you had started one, two, or five years ago to work on your dream?  What about a month ago?  Why not start today? 

Take action right this minute!  I mean it.  Get a pencil and piece of paper and do the following:

  1. Write your dream or desire at the top of the sheet.
  2. List the first three steps you need to take to make your dream a reality.  These should be straightforward action steps.  Nothing complicated.  Start them with a verb.  For example, if you were going to make a presentation, you might write down, “Reserve a room“.
  3. Now immediately, without thinking about it, do the first item on your list.


If you did what I suggested above, then you just created momentum.  Go on to the next item on your list.  Waiting to take action will let fear and doubt creep into your mind.  This is usually why our dreams never become a reality.  Of course, now that you are aware of it, you will avoid delay.  You will take action and do the work to start living the life you dreamed of when you were little!

  1. Great ideas Jeff. One of my dreams was to get this blog started after I finished my MBA. I did just what you suggested, mapped out a plan and then listed the action steps needed to get it in motion. THEN TOOK THE FIRST STEP.

    Most people never take the first step and then wonder why things never seem to “go their way.”

    Great advice!
