Are you living your dream?
I know you want to. I know I want to. So what do we do to get to the place where we we know we are living the dream? I'll give you a few techniques that I know that work for me.
First, I practice Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation. It is a practice that allows you to show up and do nothing! Well you lay down, support yourself with pillows and blankets, and then close your eyes and simply breathe. I have experienced a huge transformation with the practice of Yoga Nidra. It does work differently for everyone because everyone sets their own intentions for themselves. Since practicing I feel happy and stress free. Truly happier than I have been in a long time!
Another thing I do to move me one step closer to living the dream is surround myself with people who support me in living my dream. Who in your life supports you for you and your dreams? Who in your life may show up more on the negative side? You have got to weed out the negative people in your life. These people do not serve you. Maybe they will come around and learn from your positivity and motivation, so be sure to show up for them then but until then do not let these people hold you down.
One of the last things I can think of that have gotten me one step closer to living my dream is to not give up. It is likely there have already been others on the same path as you and there are going to be even more that want to join the same path. You will see people give up, you will see people fail, or you may even fail. The times in my life when I have failed my mind is so quick to tell me "that's it! your done, you are not good enough". Luckily, I have been able to qucikly shut the negativity out of my mind. I study harder. I surround myself with even stronger people and after awhile I am even stronger than before. Surround yourself in your community. Learn from the ones who have came before you, teach the ones who come after you. Life is not a competition. We are all here to live the dream and we should live it together in community.
Your God, your creator did not create you to improve or to wait for the perfect time to shine. By now everyone should know the value of life and unfortunately, life is short. Your God, your creator created you to shine now. If you could be doing anything right now in the moment what would you be doing? Live your passion and worry about everything else later.
