DiscoveringDo you feel as though you’re just existing and floating through life, waiting for something to happen? Have you put all your dreams on hold because you’re so focused on the things that are keeping you awake at night? Could it be the dead end job or the endless parade of bills?

That’s a predicament that a lot of people find themselves in, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can find your destiny and begin making it a reality. Here’s how:

First, dare to dream. Take some time for you, and give yourself the space you need to sit down and honestly think about what it is you want out of life. Don’t take “I don’t know” as an answer. It’s not an answer. You have hopes and dreams. You have desires you’ve put on hold, possibly for years. Dust them off and review. Are your old dreams still relevant, or have they been replaced by something else?

Give some serious thought to that, and write down your dreams. That’s the first step toward making them real. Then, armed with a clear vision of what you want out of life, engage in some blue sky thinking. If money and time weren’t obstacles in your way, what would it take to make your dreams come true?

Money and time actually are important considerations, of course, but this gives you an unimpeded view of where you want to go. Once you know that, it’s a simple matter of getting creative with the resources you’ve got and putting them to best use.

Discovering your destiny and having the courage to follow your dreams can literally be life changing. It takes both courage and commitment to develop a plan and start pursuing something you have dared to dream. It’s daunting, and because of that, few people do it. Be one of those few. Take control of your own destiny. Make your own future.
