Today I had a thought - what if I never had taken the first step towards my dreams? Or the first step to create our nomadic lifestyle?
One thing I know for sure is, that time waits for nobody.
It doesn’t matter what kind of dreams you have - big or small - or how many plans you make. Time will go on and it’s up to you, how you want to look back on this season in your life. And since we’re already at the end of July, it means that for this year, we have five more months left to fill.
So let me ask you this - Are you happy how this year has gone so far?
Did you go after that specific goal? Are you chasing your dreams? Or is it still just that - a dream?
Did you create that passion project, or did you go after that job you wanted? What about that big obstacle you feared? Did you challenge it? Or did you put it aside for another day?
If you haven’t done the things you set out to work on, today is a good day to make a decision. To really pick what you want to do. It doesn’t matter if you are multi-passionate or don’t know for sure what dream to go after. My hope for you is that this year, you will find your Courage. The courage you need to move forward.
Start where you are.
Pick a dream that makes you feel good. Don’t be shy to dream big!
And then, decide - for real - that when this year has ended, you will be further along than today.
Pick and Commit.
And also let’s be honest - making a plan is great. But more importantly - take the action needed to step towards that dream.
Not sure how? Ask for help. Surround yourself with people who get what you want to do. Create a small group of trusted people who can give you honest feedback. This can be online or offline. Look how others who have gone before you have done it. Model their habits and put your own twist on it. Model their way of going after their goals or learn how they tackled their obstacles. Read about your subjects, listen to podcasts, absorb the right information needed to get your spirit lifted, or enhance your knowledge. But more important - Start!
Because your dreams can’t come true if you don’t take action and start, right?
Don’t overthink it or over complicate things. You don’t need to know all the answers ahead to begin. Just start with a simple task. Today.
And remember, we’re all figuring out how to get from A to B as we build our dreams into reality. That’s why being part of any community - online or offline - is such a great help. You are not alone and you don’t need to figure things out by yourself.
Just make the decision to really commit to your dreams and keep showing up - for yourself.
Imperfect and all. Because that’s okay.
