How Can You Start Living Your Dream?

We Have Infinite Power – Sure – But how can you start living your dream?

“We Have Infinite Power” to live the lives we want – that’s my personal motto, and the one I teach in my WHIPshop™ classes. It’s easy to say, but believing that it applies to you is the hard part. Before you can access your power to build your dream life, there are three things you need to do to lay the foundation.

1.       Stop dwelling on the past. You can’t look back and run forward at the same time.
Responsibilities claim us, our own choices seem to limit us, personal tragedies can rip our lives apart - and suddenly, we see more closed doors than open ones. But the open doors are there (and if they aren’t, you can make them). Successful people don’t lead charmed lives in which nothing bad ever happens, but they don’t dwell on their failures either. They move on from Plan A to Plan B – all the way down to Z – when things don’t work out.  It’s not about staying positive; it’s about having a learning curve.

2.       Your best teachers are the people who have hurt you. Learn from them.
Sometimes it’s not an act of God that prevents us from living our dreams – people are just as capable of knocking us down.  Learn from those experiences so you can avoid them the next time you see warning signs.

3.       Surround yourself with people who are living their dreams.
It’s like you tell your kids when they’re growing up: you are who you’re with. If you surround yourself with people who are stuck in their bad situations, it’s too easy to remain mired in your own limitations. Instead, surround yourself with people who inspire you, and who you can learn from.

Now, what is your dream?
