Wishing and hoping

Do you have hopes and dreams? Things you want to see or do before you die, goals you want to accomplish. Milestones you are working towards?

I know I do. 

I want to have chickens one day,

and a boat on a lake,

and there’s this person I dream about being one day too; my future self.

Having and knowing your goals and dreams for your future is the first step in achieving them so If you’ve got this part figured out celebrate it.

If you don’t yet, this is great news because this part is so fun.

There is a whole world of possibilities, and nothing really (other than you) to stop you from getting busy planning what you want yours to look like.

Step 2 is a little more work, it’s where we actually take our dreams and goals and start to put them into action.

It’s not going to be enough to just wish and hope that these dreams will come true.

Results are a direct reflection of our thinking and beliefs.

Those beliefs in me and my dreams drive me to action.

Sometimes I wish that my kids would just magically raise themselves into amazing humans who will listen all the time and pick up after themselves. 

Still waiting for that to happen, so instead, I can take action, I can teach, love, and be an example.

Sometimes I wished that my next client would just appear out of nowhere, no effort required.

This has seemingly happened to me before, but only because I had forgotten about all the work and effort in the past that created momentum in my business.

So, I can continue to show up, share my messages, and serve my people.

Sometimes I wish that I could wake up feeling confident and happy every day without any of the negative stuff,

But then I remind myself of the human reality. Life is meant to have good and bad.

A life that’s all good all the time is fun to watch on the screen but it will never be reality.

So instead, I can choose to be intentional, focus on my self-awareness, and pay attention to my thinking daily.

Dreams are just dreams without goals, and goals are just good intentions without actions.

What have you done today to get you closer to the life you want to be living?
