Why Yearning Will Do Little to Help You to Realize Dreams

I think it’s only natural to yearn for some thing, some place or even some one, but for the sake of this discussion, let’s focus on some thing. It indicates a desire to accomplish, to achieve, to seek something that is not presently within your grasp. Unfortunately, procrastination is also natural. Yearning allows us to envision the possibility of what we could have and inspire dreams that if we’re not careful, will remain as just that.

We have to begin pushing the worlds of wanting and achieving together so that we can make our yearnings a concrete reality. First, you have to devise a plan of action. To quote Katherine Peterson: “A dream without a plan is just a wish.”. Wishes are just that: immeasurable, invisible and at the end of the day, sheer fantasy.

Once you begin to take those creative visualizations and set realistic goals to achieve them, you will have put a plan of action into motion. Ask yourself the following:READ MORE

When Carving Your Path In Life, Make Sure That You’re The Sculptor

Everybody has a story.  Each story is a mix of varying parts of happiness, sadness, hope and regret.  It’s rare to find anyone who is completely happy with their lot in life, but the smart ones know that complaining never helps nor does it make anything better.  If they are dissatisfied with the path they’re on, they’ll strive to make changes that will take them on a different route. But some folks worry about what others might say in response to the new attitude that seems counter the way that they’ve always known them to be.

For the same reason that pencils have erasers, you can decide to change anything about your life that doesn’t mesh with the person that you presently see yourself as…..or even want to be. Even though a pencil can erase, you can still see the vestiges of what was underneath.

It doesn’t negate what has gone on before; it just allows you to move beyond it….to clean the slate…..to redirect your path.  You can change the storyline; remembering that just because it happened doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve a rewrite.READ MORE

Getting away, to find yourself!

Your dreams are as big or small as you want them to be

Oxymoronic? No, I don’t think so. I believe vacations are the best way to reintroduce yourself to…..you. It’s so easy…..dangerously so…..to get caught up in our workday and family obligations that we forget that our own batteries need to be recharged and our spirits revitalized every once in a while.

Ironically, it doesn’t have to be a spa getaway or chanting on the top of a mountain in order to get in touch with your seven chakras. It can be as activity driven as you’d like….as long as….YOU like it. Ultimately, that is the point. Doing what you want to do for your own personal joy and enrichment and on your own schedule!READ MORE
