“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
What do you desire to have, be and do in your life?
What do you wish to experience the most?
What is your Big Dream?
These are great and important questions to ask ourselves! Unfortunately, they are often not asked because we lack the time, energy or resources. We may also believe that it's wrong to desire and to want more.
Desire to have a fulfilled, inspired and meaningful life is inherent in all of us. The need to grow and self actualize is one of our most basic needs, along with the need for food, shelter and security.
So, rather than ignoring or suppressing your desires, why not embrace them instead?
One great way is to ask yourself questions at the beginning of this post and create a list of desires. Then, look at each of the items one by one and imagine yourself having that which you desire in your life right now. The key is to engage your emotions and all your senses to fully experience what it would feel like to have your desire fulfilled. In this process, you may discover that some of things on your list don't really grab you and others are so juicy that you can't stop thinking about them. You may also discover that some of the desires are already fulfilled but you haven't recognized it.
Once you have identified your deepest, most exciting desires, find ways to experience them in your life right now. How can you experience a small portion of your big dream today? What actions can you take? Can you join a group, take a class, go to a party, visit a restaurant or an art gallery, buy a book, start a journal, begin writing a story, take a picture...?
Don't wait until Some Day your dream will come true, and instead take the small first step towards your it today:
The place is Every Place
The day is Every Day
The time is Every Time
For you to start living your dreams!
“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”
― Paulo Coelho, Alchemist
