The Secret to Living Your Dreams: Five Success Techniques to Achieving More Success in Your Life!
By Ed Sykes
If I had more time, I would have acted on my dream…
If I didn’t need this job, I would have pursued my dream of…
If only I had (you fill in the blank) ten years ago, I would have achieved my dream of…
I am sure you can add a dozen more “If I” dream statements. There are people going through life everyday working at jobs they hate, in situations they tolerate, and living a life that they disown because they settled for an “If I” mindset.
What is the secret between the person who is achieving his/her dream life and the person who is just wishing for a dream life? The following are five techniques for living your dream and achieving more in life:
- Understand Your Options and Live Your Dreams - We have options in our life. Do we follow the road everyone else is taking or do we travel the road less traveled to achieve our dreams? We have the option to look at life’s challenges as a way to find creative solutions or to look at challenges as a negative barrier to achieving one’s dreams. Take the positive option to develop yourself and achieve your dreams.
- Fight Your Fears and Live Your Dreams - Most fears we constantly think about and which sometimes paralyze us never happen. Yet we will spend 75-90% of our thoughts on our fears. F-E-A-R is nothing more than False Evidence Appearing Real. Get the facts and act accordingly. Let’s “flip our mental script” and concentrate on the upside of any situation so that we can concentrate on achieving our dreams. Fight though your fears and build your courage to live your dreams.
