Don’t Wait for “Someday” - Start Today!
Everyone has dreams. Dreams of things they want to do, things they want to have, places they want to go. Some dreams we think about often but then get distracted by the busyness of life and the dreams are forgotten until another day. Some people have had the same dream for their whole life, and yet they are no closer to achieving it.
A dream without a plan is just a wish. We often let limiting beliefs prevent us from actually creating a plan to make our dream a reality. Excuses like “I’m too busy” or “it’s not the right time” play over and over in our minds - and before we know it, years have passed and we are no closer to making our dreams a reality.
We also fall into the “someday” trap. Someday I’ll get a better job. Someday I’ll take that trip. Someday I’ll be able to spend more time with my kids. Someday I’ll create a plan to achieve my dream.
Behind the thoughts of “someday” is often the belief that the dream really isn’t attainable. It could be a belief “I’m not worthy” or “good things never work out for me.” Whatever it is, it’s still a limiting belief because it’s preventing you from taking the necessary steps to achieve it.
People that do achieve their dreams have recognized the power of now and the personal power they already have to achieve their dreams. They know it is not dependent on other people or outside circumstances; it’s dependent on them.
Now is the time to start taking small and consistent steps! If you dream about taking a trip to Italy, start by researching what you would want to see, where you would want to stay, and how much it would cost. Talk to others that have gone there to get more information. Open a savings account and label it “vacation.” Put a date on the calendar for when you will go - even if it’s five years in the future.
The key is to do something now. Move forward now. Don’t wait for the right time, the right people, or the right circumstances. Everything you need to achieve your dreams you have within you today.
Taking small, consistent steps will open doors, bring the right people into your life, and create the conditions needed to move you closer to achieving your dreams. The present moment determines your future. Focus on what you can do now and watch your vision of your future become a reality!
