Day Four : Dream setting

Discover what you truly want and make your dreams come true
Before we begin let's start with a short story again it said :
A man was walking along A beach, reflecting on his life.He had always wanted to make a difference, but no matter what he tried, he wound up feeling as though he was spitting into the wind.
Suddenly, the man heard a loud 'crunch', and looked down at his feet. Right where he was standing, and for as far as the eye could see in either direction, there were thousands upon thou­ sands of tiny starfish washed up onto the shore by the ocean waves and tide.
The man continued walking, thinking to himself about the apparent cruelty of the ocean. After all, those starfish hadn't done anything wrong! Yet before the day was done, they would be dead, washed up on shore and left to die.
After a time, the man came across an old woman standing at the ocean's edge, throwing starfish that had washed up on shore back into the sea.
When he asked her what she was doing, she said she had always wanted to make a difference, and she had decided that today was a good day to begin.
The man looked from her to the thousands upon thousands of starfish that lay dying along the coastline and said, 'For every starfish you throw back into the ocean, three more wash up onto the shore! How can you possibly be making a difference? The woman looked thoughtful for a moment, then she picked up another starfish and threw it back into the sea. 'Made a difference to that one,’ she said, and she smiled the most beau­tiful smile the man had ever seen

  • The Goal of Setting Goals

I'm sure you've heard about the importance of goals before, so at first glance, some of what I'm going to share with you today may seem familiar. You may have even set goals in the past, and got all excited about achieving them, only to find your motivation wane when what you set in motion didn't come to pass. Or perhaps you got what you thought you wanted, only to discover it wasn't and were left to reflect, Is this all there is?

But don't be fooled or tempted to skip ahead - today is going to be different. The crucial difference is that this time we're going to put goals in their proper place - as servants of a better life.
Today, you're going to learn a whole new way of thinking about what it is you want in life. Goals are actually the LEAST important part of the three-step process you will learn. Using the amazing techniques in today's lesson, we're going to help you take control of your life and steer it in the direction you want.

By the time we're finished today, you'll not only be clearer than ever about what it is that you want, you'll also have begun to programme your goals and dreams directly into your unconscious mind. This will make them easier to achieve than ever before!
Three Steps to a Wonderful Life
There are essentially only three things you need to have a wonderful life:

1. A clear direction (your Dream)

2. A well-aligned compass (your Values)

3. Milestones you can visit along the way to your ultimate destination (your Goals)

For our purposes, we can think about it like this:
When you pursue your goals guided by your values in the context of your dreams, miracles happen! 

Dreamers of the Day
We all have dreams - deeply felt desires for a different, better life. Take a moment now just to "fantasize" - to let your mind wander, literally to 'daydream'.
Answer the following question:
What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail? 

Only you know what you truly want out of life - what makes your heart sing. When you are answering the questions below, it's very important that you don't stop to consider whether some­ thing is possible or not. Just let the answers flow ...
  • What do you love to do so much that you'd pay to do it?
  • What do you feel really passionate about?
  • What would you choose to do if you had unlimited resources?
Who are the people or characters from history you most admire, and why?
Answering these questions will help you to get an over­ all idea of what your life's purpose is about. It takes the limitations of your present mindset off and lets you become outrageously creative.
If you feel you want additional clarity, ask yourself the following questions:
  • What did you want to do as a child?
  • What did you want to be when you grew up? 
  • What would you do if you were guaranteed success?
Write down whatever comes to mind. You're not commit­ ting to anything here, and you can organize your thoughts later. You don't need to be too specific at first, and you don't need to figure out how it's going to happen - just let the creative process continue.
Now, think about all the major areas of your life - family, relationships, career, health, community and spir­itual development.

  •  What would you really love to happen?
  •  What would you really like to learn?
  •  What skills do you want to master?
  •  How much money do you want to earn?
  •  What character traits do you want to develop? 
  •  What do you want to give back to the world?

In a few moments, I'm going to ask you to begin to formulate your 'big dream'. As you do, make sure that your dream is focused on what you do want, not on what you don't. 

  • Activate Your Resources

Now is the time to begin to explore what it's going to take to live your dream. Again and again, I see people relying on the same one or two resources to bail them out of trouble or propel them forward towards their goals and dreams. Whether it's their charm, their trust fund or their friends, they have become so habituated to using these resources that they forget what else they have available to them.
When they get stuck, it's not because they've really run out of options, but rather because their habitual 'knights in shining armour' aren't working or available to them in this particular situation.
In order to activate your resources and step outside your comfort zone, take some time now to list the myriad resources you have at your command.
Here are some categories to get you started: 

1. Your skills, qualities, gifts and talents
Examples: loving, kind, a great dancer, a good negotiator, funny, can drink a pint of beer in one go, etc.
2. Your community
• People you work with
• People you work for
• People who work for you
• Family
• Friends
• Neighbours
• Your 'fan club'
• People you went to school with • People you used to work with • Customers/clients

3. Your available cash and credit
Examples: bank accounts, investments, home equity, business equity, etc.
4. Your possessions
Examples: house, computer, car, fax machine, photo­ copier, desk, chairs, personal and business success books, etc.

Taking Action:

Of course, if all you had to do was think about what you wanted and it magically showed up a few moments later, everyone would be driving a Ferrari, living in a mansion house, wearing expensive jewellery and sleeping with beautiful lovers. It would also be chaos! That's why the universe puts one more step in-between you thinking of what you want and actually getting it - the action step.
Some people sit around and daydream without ever doing anything. However, by creating a vivid represen­tation of how you ideally want to live your life and focusing on it every day, you will become motivated to take action and you will know where you are going.

Remember that the moment you commit to something, providence moves too, and all sorts of unforeseen incidents and assistance occur. It's as though your commitment becomes a magnet for good things to be drawn to you.
In the words of Goethe:
'Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic and power in it.'
Begin it now!' Until tomorrow, 

Tomorrow, or in the next article we'll be exploring the first cornerstone of your wonderful life - abundant health! "DAY5"
