What significant changes do you desire in your life? If you were forced to choose just one dream to pursue for the rest of your life, what single reality would you like to create? You probably know the answer already.
That being the case, why haven’t you given this desire life?
Desires, dreams, and wishes are wonderful things. They can brighten a few moments of an otherwise dull and forgettable day. It’s nice to imagine yourself living out your desires. Visualizing your dreams as your reality is a proven practice for getting you closer to making that happen.
Visualization is powerful, but it’s just part of the process. There are other things you have to do to live your desires. One of those is to take action.
Why Do You Want What It Is That You Desire?
Desires are all about change. You want something that you don’t currently have. You have a strong desire to change your current situation.
Think back to the example above. Imagine you can only choose one big, meaningful change in your life. This should be something that fires up your emotions. It needs to be a burning desire. One you experience in your mind in every way.
Now, break it down.
Why do you want this experience? What emotions or feelings are you trying to realize? Do you want to achieve the desire temporarily, or will it make a permanent change in your life? Have you always felt this way, or did some person, event, or circumstance influence you?
This practice allows your desires to seem real. You start to think of it as something that can happen rather than just a nice dream. The next thing you need to do is work backward from your dream reality. What steps will you take to move from where you are now to where you want to be?
Take Action to Change Your Life or Keep Dreaming. The Choice Is Yours
Now that you have broken your desire into its core components and why you want it so badly, you have a choice. You can embrace it as nothing more than a dream. Or you can take action. You can start taking the steps required to give your dream life and make it a reality.
We have very few things we can control in our lives. You control this moment right now. You have absolute control over whether or not you will start acting on your desires.
You can do nothing and keep dreaming. Your life won’t change. Or you can take action to change your life and live out your desires. Dreams without actions are powerless. When you act upon your dreams and desires, you give them power. You commit yourself to living your desires and creating positive change in your life.
Once you’ve decided that you want to leave your current job to start your practice, you need an exit plan. Check out our blog post here for tips on developing an exit plan and starting your new independent practice.
