You know exactly what this article is about. It’s about how to stop making excuses you give yourself every day to achieve your dreams. We’ll also discuss some of the changes you may encounter when you decide to move out and live independently.
Let’s say you’ve contacted that mortgage company in Seattle and finally are able to make that down payment on that house. Is it going to be all rainbows and butterflies from then on? You may have started the process of buying your dream house, but you still need to do a lot of dirty work, and it takes more than just a mere phone call.
You will be exhausted most of the time. Once you start going for what you really want in life, expect to have your calendar suddenly packed. Say goodbye to those slow-moving afternoons watching the clouds roll by as you daydream about mounting your art exhibit. Now, you will be actually painting those canvases, making arrangements with a gallery, contacting art suppliers, inviting friends, socializing with other artists, yes it will be a whirl of activity but it will be very fulfilling. You may be tired, as the famous song goes, but you will be happy.
Things may unfold before you like magic
That’s the funny thing about following your passion. It’s as if the path has already been laid out for and has just been waiting for you all this time. Once you decide to take the first step, you will marvel at how doors will automatically start opening for you sometimes almost without effort at all. Let’s say you’ve finally pursued your dream of becoming a chef. You will find yourself surrounded by opportunities, such as a friend who suddenly asks if you can cook for a party she will be having. Or a former boss will ask if you by any chance would like to join a cooking class for free. Some say it’s a coincidence, but it really is fate.
You will start feeling really good about yourself
You will have an unexplainable glow about you. Remember when you were younger and in love with someone? You were constantly walking around on clouds and looking blissed out. It will somewhat be the same, except that now, you will be in love with what you are doing. Better yet, you will be in love with life. The natural overflow of this will be that people around you will feel your happiness and love too.
You’ll acquire magic powers
Well, not literally. But you will definitely know that the power of will. That you can do anything you put your mind into. Once you understand that, well, you can do practically anything. You will start taking on more and more projects and fear things less and less. World domination may very well be next on the list. Kidding aside, once you realize the power of intention, use it well.
Isn’t it amazing what can happen once you take that first step? Sometimes it’s just as simple as going to that dream house. To others, it’s a complete change in careers. Whatever it is that is holding you back, think about what is waiting for you on the other side. Hopefully, it will be enough to free you to go and live that life that is yours.
