Do you remember when you believed anything was possible? The times in your childhood when you wanted to be an astronaut or a movie star? When we are children, we are full of ideas and excitement about what the future holds. We believe anything is possible. Yet somewhere along the way we lose this excitement and belief and allow life and the people around us to tell us a different story. Why do we let this happen?
The truth of the matter is that as human beings we are capable of pretty much ANYTHING! There is nothing in this world holding us back except for US. Now this doesn’t mean the road to these dreams is going to be easy. We may realize along the way that the end goal isn’t worth all of the hard work and sacrifices that are needed to reach the goal. If this happens that is 100% ok. However, this doesn’t mean that our dreams were unattainable. This is a big piece of the puzzle that most people fail to realize. There is a great deal of power in knowing you are capable of reaching your dreams, but the road to your dreams is not worth the sacrifice needed to reach them.Once you come to this realization, the whole world opens up to you. You are no longer a prisoner of the ideas and opinions of those around you. You realize that you have the ability to live the life of your dreams if you chose to.
If you are feeling the pull to change your life course or feel like you aren’t living the life of your dreams, now is the time to fix it! When you lay on your death bed you don’t want to say I wish I had gone after this dream or goal. You want to look back on your life and be excited and happy about the life you created. We have this amazing gift of freedom of thoughts and ideas and this allows us to be the curators of our own life. It only requires we take control of what we want.
With that being said,I challenge you to write down your goals! Write down your ideal life.
If you could do anything with your life, what would it be? Go back to that childlike state where life excited you and anything was possible.
Next write down the obstacles to these goals. What hold you back from reaching these goals.
Then write down the solutions to these obstacles. This will allow you to see what is needed to meet these goals.
After you have done this decide if the work needed to reach these goal is worth it to you. If it’s not worth the work and sacrifice, let it go! Move on with your life and create new dreams and goals. It’s ok to change your dreams and goals. Just don’t give up on them because you think they are unattainable. Where there is a WILL there is a WAY. Curate the life you want! Don’t let the world or past experiences tell you that you can’t have the life you want. You are the Curator of your life!
