“If I knew then what I know now, I would have…”
Some common responses are:
… I would have stayed in school.
… I would have vacationed more.
… I would have/have not taken that job offer.
Fill in the blank for yourself:
“I would have ____________________.”
When you were a kid, what did YOU imagine yourself doing as an adult? What did you imagine your life would be like? Who did you imagine you would BE?
Think back ten years: What were you doing ten years ago? Who were you? Did you have a dream? What was your heart longing for?
How about five years ago: Who did you imagine becoming? Did you start making headway on those ten years ago visions?
And how about NOW: Are you who you imagined you’d BE? Have you fulfilled your deepest desires? Or did “life happen” instead? Did “shoulds” and “have-tos” and the busy-ness of daily life derail or delay your dreams?
Be gentle – but honest – with yourself, and really connect to your answers.
- What is the impact of NOT BEING your best and brighest self?
- How does it FEEL to realize how much time has gone by?
- What hurts your HEART when you identify what’s gone undone?
- What do you sense would make ALL the difference for you and your life?
Awareness can be uncomfortable, but it’s also the where the motivation for change lives. Honest self-awareness is the very thing that will fuel the changes needed to create what you want … (so stay with it).
“Imagination is everything. It’s a preview of life’s coming attractions.”
Would you believe that quote is attributed to Albert Einstein?!? Not Walt Disney, or Dr. Seuss … but Einstein! Look around. Everything that IS – everything that has come to BE, was first an idea – an imagining.
And who you are BECOMING is no different.
Dream realization is not about knowing more, or having more, as much as it is about BEING more.
The worst thing you can do is let even more time go by and talk yourself out of taking action NOW. You really don’t have to wait to take the next steps to BE who you are becoming – in fact the sooner you embrace the opportunity you have to, in this very moment, make the commitment to do what it takes and set yourself up with the right support to make it happen … the sooner you’ll manifest the actual experience for yourself!
We really can’t do it alone. (If you have a little voice saying, “Yes I can” … I challenge you to honestly take a look at how that’s going for you.)
Your dreams are the voice of your soul. Regardless of your present circumstances and regardless of how impractical or outlandish your dreams may seem to you right now, your job is to take the next step anyway.
Getting more acquainted and familiar with WHO you are becoming will change your life. Really. Just imagine the benefits of consciously putting your attention and energy there … such wonder and possibility awaits YOU!
