Create Your Dream Life At Any Time

Jan 16, 2024

The question I’ve been getting over and over lately is “How do I plan or start working towards the life that I want when there is so much… fill in the blank… right now?”

I actually know for sure that there’s no better time than the present to start creating your dream life.

There’s often a lot of uncertainty in life and that can create a sense of chaos. But this chaos also opens us up to possibility.

If chaos means that anything can happen, why assume that only negative things can happen?
You see where I’m going with this? Positive things can happen too.

It’s all a matter of where you put your energy.

By “where you put your energy”, I mean the following:

1. Get to know yourself better

This is the perfect time to get to know what makes you come alive and what gives your life deep meaning.
Are you noticing that you’re actually enjoying not going into the office? Feel more peaceful with less outside activities on your plate?
This collective pause that we’re living in is a great time to reflect on all the activities and people in your life that you don’t really miss. And maybe even admit to yourself that you would be happier, if you could remove them from your life permanently.
Use this time to envision the future you want to create.
What brings you joy? Enlivens you? Brings you inner peace? Has deep meaning for you?

If you could wave a magic wand, what would your ideal life look like?

No better time than the present to get clear on that.

2. Transform all the negativity that’s holding you back

This is a great time to notice how you feel when you start thinking of creating that life you’re envisioning. Are you positive and optimistic? Telling yourself that you can do it?
Or are you negative? Telling yourself that it’s never going to happen for you? That it’s impossible?
It’s perfectly natural for our brains to focus on the negative… but it’s never going to get you where you want to go.
This is the time to start noticing your thoughts and the beliefs that underlie them.

Are your beliefs serving you to create the future that you want?

If not, it’s time to get to work and transform them. Byron Katie’s, The Work is a great place to start.

3. Take inspired action to move towards your dreams

Armed with a more positive attitude, this is when it’s time to get into action. Ideally, an action step every day.
Write that email, set up a virtual coffee date with somebody who is doing what you want to be doing, research courses online, sign up for a program to grow your skills, update your resume, volunteer in whatever way you can, start the project or business you always wanted to start, do that website, write a book…

It’s actually limitless! There are so many things you can be doing right now to move you closer to your dream life!

The key is to start doing them. Here’s why:

It will make you feel better. Nothing feels quite as good as moving towards your dreams

The Universe rewards inspired action! As you take action, you will notice how the Universe conspires to help you. As if by magic, synchronicities will start to happen. You will hear the info, get the tip, meet the person you are meant to meet to propel you on to the next step. You will be led and guided towards your next action steps. Just follow the yellow brick road…
You will get there much quicker if you start taking action right now than if you don’t. As my spiritual mentor Thich Nhat Hahn said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. There’s no better time than the present to get started on your journey.
So, what about you? What dreams do you harbor? If you could wave your magic wand, what would you create in your life right now?
