Do you remember your very first dream as a child?
Do you remember the first time you decided to set a goal and you actually accomplished it?
Let’s be honest. Following your dreams can be tough. Between family, finances, work, health issues and life - so many things can get in the way of our dreams.
Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream. A dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. His dream is one of the most famously quoted and remembered for many reasons.
Life happens, but it’s our personal responsibility to keep pursuing our dreams amidst the challenges.
Here’s 3 practical ways to begin manifesting your dreams today.
1. DEVELOP A GROWTH MINDSET
Everyday is an opportunity to take action. The growth-mindset person believes you can achieve your dreams through practice, persistence, perseverance and consistency. PLANT YOUR SEEDS TODAY AND HARVEST THEM LATER.
2. DELAY GRATIFICATION
We live in a ‘microwave world’ and want most things NOW.
Let your dream be your top priority every day. Commit never to postpone working on your dream even when you don’t see results right away or when the urge to quit gets overwhelming.
Let the top performers in every field motivate you. Top performers are always consistent, and they show up and deliver while everyone else is weighed down by life and the constant battle with procrastination.
3. PRACTICE DAILY GRATITUDE
Gratitude should be a daily practice. Gratitude strengthens your will power. It keeps you focused on what’s working well, which allows you to take actions confidently without letting your fears get in the way. You’ll be surprised how much gratitude can change your perspective.
