10 Reasons to Start Building Your Dream

Whole Earth Catalogue 1974

“I don’t know what’s wrong with me,” she began.  “I’m feeling so blah these days.  I shouldn’t feel this way.  I have everything I need: a beautiful home, a kick-ass car, all the shoes a girl could use.  Just no time to enjoy them…  I feel stuck.  I feel like shit.  And I feel like my life has gotten really tight and small.”

“I want to feel free” she continued.  “Like there is plenty of time to do all the things I love.  I want time to be with my friends.  I want to feel like I did when I was a little girl in the kitchen with my Nana cooking – I want that to be my life. Every Day.”

Marna (not her real name) is one in many who come to me expressing this kind of malaise – that uneasy feeling that there is something else you need to be doing with your life.

Instead of realizing their dreams, too many women never get started.  They find themselves too busy and numb to the still voice inside calling them forth into the life they were meant to lead.  Instead, they plug on through, settling for all the reasons they use to stay dissatisfied.

Reasons such as:

  1. I do not have enough time/ money/ resources…..
  2. I’m not talented enough.
  3. I do not have enough knowledge/ degrees/ certifications.
  4. I do not have enough experience.
  5. I have failed many times in the past.
  6. I’m not lucky.
  7. Who I am to dream of making such an impact.
  8. Who would buy my shizzle??????
The list goes on and on becoming a self-deprecating tool by which they defeat themselves before even getting started.  This is not what you deserve.  And you SO need to believe that what you have to offer is going to make a huge impact to others.

So, here are 10 reasons to move ahead:

1. It feels great when you do

“To be able to get out of bed and do what you love for the rest of the day is beyond words.” –  John Schroeder

When you think of what you could be doing, does your heart not flutter with excitement?  Your dream exists to turn your life into a masterpiece of joy and contribution. Doing what you love and living your life on your own terms are the best things you can do for yourself, even when, for right now, you can only take little itty bitty baby steps in its direction.

2. It’s YOUR dream

Writer Richard Bach says, “You’re never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.

The dream that was born inside your heart would never exist if you were not also given the power to make it come true. That’s a timeless truth. Since you have thought about it, then you have an innate ability to achieve it.  Yes, there may be others doing something similar.  And You are YOU.  It is your uniqueness that will make it different.   Only you can make it true.

3. Your Soul Believes

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

The world’s movers and shakers are those who believed in their dreams and persevered until they manifested what they have dreamt about.  Envision your dream and see by your heart’s eyes how it can change the world and have a huge impact on so many lives.

4. There is no price tag for harmony

“I’m a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.”  Mike Tyson

When you work on your dreams, you will begin to create your best life possible.  Each action you take, each limiting belief you knock down gets you more aligned with your calling.  Know that any dream worth going for will take time to build, and at each crossroads there are small rewards inviting you to carry on.

5. You are starving for more

If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.” –Les Brown

Nothing will feed your hunger for making a difference more than pursuing your dream.  It will add meaning to your life and make your efforts worthwhile. It will make you wake up every morning with exhilaration and enthusiasm.

As the last edition of The Whole Earth Catalogue stated “Stay hungry.  Stay foolish.” (1974)

6. You want to feel alive

When you cease to dream you cease to live.” –Malcolm Forbes

If you ignore the love and light in your heart, your soul will die of starvation. Too many people are living, but very few are actually ALIVE!  Following a dream is the only way to start living. When you dream, you become alive. You are a cross roads: do you keep going in the same direction, dimming passion inside, or do you take a risk and fan its flames?

7. You are on the leading edge

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” –Oscar Wilde

You will be confronted by naysayers, not because you are wrong, but because you are a visionary.   The majority of people are uncomfortable with dreamers who have “crazy” ideas to make the world a better place.  Most are so stuck in the rut of mass consciousness that they do not believe someone can get out, spread his/her wings and fly high in the sky.

8. You are worth more

Dreams are the touchstones of our character.” –Henry David Thoreau

You deserve to have a big dream and to become remarkable. Is it not everyone’s dream to know that as they breathe their last breath  they have left a legacy, left a mark in the world for which they will always be remembered?  Living small keeps you small.   Honey, you were born of desire (I shouldn’t have to explain the birds and the bees here.)  Should not each and every thought and action be make of the same stuff?  Live out your worth.

9. Only YOU have the answer

Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.” –Edgar Cayce

You dream because you have a burning desire to solve a problem or fulfill a need that would make the world a better place.  You are our answer to our most difficult questions. You owe it to us and to the world!

10. You can Ignite Your Courage

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” –Walt Disney

All what your dream needs is courage that will nurture it and make it grow beyond all limitations. You have this courage already within you.  If you’re passionate about it, unleash it. No matter what you think or what other people think, YOU CAN.  Get the help that you need to get started today!

You can.

You deserve.

You owe it to yourself and to the world.

It’s time to believe in the beauty of your dreams and show the world the promise and brilliance of your legacy.

“Don’t die with your music still inside you. Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs your soul. Listen to that inner voice, and don’t get to the end of your life and say, ‘What if my whole life has been wrong?”  – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, best-selling author.
