Turning Dreams Into Reality

We all know that having a dream or goal for our life is the easy part but turning that dream into a reality is easier said than done. There will always be obstacles and inconveniences along the way that can potential hold you back.  These setbacks can easily convince anyone that they are not moving in the right direction and are simply making a mistake following their dream.  Contrary to popular belief there is no “secret” to realizing and achieving your dreams. It’s not a magic formula that you can get that magically works and the next thing you know your dreams become a reality. It takes more than a few ideas, hopes and little to no effort to go from a just a dream to reality. It’s important to clearly state and write down your dreams or goals this is a vital step. Then create a plan and hold your self accountable for deadlines you have given yourself.

Visualizing Your Dreams

There are many articles, blogs and motivational videos that discus the inherent power of our thoughts can manifest into our deepest desires.  Simply put visualizing means having a vivid and compelling image in your mind about the objects of your desire. This is an important step to making our dreams a reality, because if we don’t believe in ourselves and speak, think and believe it no one else will. I always quote a mentor of mind he always says “Our thoughts become reality”.  Simply said, our mind naturally manifests things into existence if we truly believe in them.  Visualization is one of the best ways to make your dreams come to fruition.


No excuses

It is easy to make excuses i.e. I don’t have enough time, resources, connections, money etc. etc. There are numerous excuses one can make for themselves ,but if you really want to make your dreams a reality not just thoughts and hopes in your head.  You cannot make excuses because we all have them I used to make excuses all the time “I’m too young, I don’t have enough money, I don’t come from a background of people who follow their dreams, I don’t have enough time”.  All the excuses I made I was focused on what I didn’t have and not what I did have.  Which are hard work and the dedication to make anything possible even past my wildest dreams.  So for those who sit around making excuses about how they can’t reach their dream or goal. I want you to ask yourself a question is your excuse really worth going through a life time of regret wishing you would have followed your dream?

Process over Outcome

When you trust the plan choosing process over outcome is easy.  If you are preoccupy with the outcome then the failures can be painful and lead to the feeling of being inadequate and incompetent. This can lead to discouragement and eventually giving up on your dream. However focusing on the process allows you to view setbacks or failures as opportune to learn and improve.  It may sound cliché but it is true failure can become our biggest teachers. I remember when I first started writing there were countless number of people would say I could never be a writer and my dreams were silly and my writing style was filled with misspellings, grammar mistake’s  and grammatical errors. Those negative comments just fueled my work ethic and made me work harder than I ever did before to improve my skills and to prove them wrong.

Do you have a dream? Does your imagination run riot at the thought reaching your dreams? Do you fantasize about how your life would be if you make your dreams a reality? Often people avoid following a specific dream because it will takes years to achieve what they want. I want to encourage anybody reading this follow their dreams and passions. Whatever your vision, there’s no time like the present to put your big ideas into action. Comment below what your dream is & if you like this post please share!

  1. This is absolutely beautiful! I feel like sometimes even myself I always dream and convince myself that I have done enough to deserve my dream but deep down I know that I’m simply false reassuring myself to make myself feel better, and this really helped me to see things in a different way.
    Thanks 🙂
