Five Things That Will Happen Once You Decide to Start Living Your Dreams

You’ve settled for far too long and have finally decided to break the cycle of mediocrity. You’ve disconnected with the people and habits that have kept you from realizing your potential.

What took years to develop and conceal—even from yourself—took only a moment of honesty to recover. So here you are, in a place you’ve dreamed of…a place where honesty, sincerity, and authenticity reside…the very threshold that will lead you to a new life.

For some, this can be a fearful place. The thought of embarking on a new journey filled with surprises, risks, and uncertainties. For others, it is the breakthrough they’ve been waiting for…the defining moment where uncertainty trumps the status quo.

Congratulations, and welcome to the beginning of living life on your terms…of living your dreams.

As you look back on what used to be the comfort of your existence, you suddenly realize the life you’re leaving behind is no longer there. It is but a mere memory and a testament to the fact that this time is different from all the rest. This time, you are more determined to take a bold step into the promise of your future. This time…you will fully embrace what has become a realization that you no longer have a place in the past and rightfully deserve the central role you must play to live your dreams.


So…take a leap into what awaits. And when you do, here are five things you can expect to happen as you experience the exciting journey of your new life.

1. You’ll see things differently.


Once you commit to living your dreams, the veils will be lifted from your eyes. You’ll embark on your new journey with a new perspective. You will immediately notice the path you are on is the one less traveled by, and as poet Roberts Frost says, will be the choice that makes all the difference.

On this road you will “see” new opportunities that have been in your reach all along, opportunities your conscious mind was simply unable to notice before this time. The fundamental change taking place is one of self-identity. This is the point of no-return in the transition of who you were to who you are becoming. Once this transition takes place, your entire world will change.

2. You’ll have a source of energy, driven by purpose.

Once you transition the threshold of decision, you will have a wellspring of energy fueled by a determination to achieve your dreams. The source will appear to be limitless and will indeed be one that will take you farther, longer, and provide results unlike you have ever experienced. The source…is tied directly to your purpose.

“The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.” ~ Mark Twain

People will refer to you as tireless, tenacious, driven, and determined—all perfectly fitting badges of honor you will freely accept as you step closer to your dreams while enjoying the experiences of the journey toward achievement. You will also have your share of others who mistakenly view your success as “luck”. Handle this part of your journey correctly and nothing will have the power to stop you.

3. Your awareness and understanding will grow.

Your thirst for knowledge and understanding will grow as you seek to learn every detail of your intended course. You’ll be guided by logic as the power of creativity is unlocked, allowing you to break the rules to recreate and disrupt the status quo. Wisdom and understanding will be attracted to you as you become both student and teacher.

You’ll see things differently, giving you to time to analyze, evaluate, and manipulate situations even as others are just reacting to them. You’ll make connections and draw conclusions others just don’t see. As a result, you’ll enhance your knowledge by generously sharing it with others. It has been said, the teacher is always the one who learns the most. So, an amazing thing happens as you experience growth through success and the acquisition of wisdom. You will teach and share abundantly and begin experiencing far more joy from the success of others than by experiencing success yourself.

4. You’ll learn to see your fears for what they truly are—opportunities to excel.

As I have said many times, fear will always exist. Those who take the bold step across the self-defined line of fear experience an understanding that rewards them with logic and insight to the process of achievement. They gain awareness others simply will not possess until they too take their own bold and determined step. While others continue to cling to ambiguous theories and processes that don’t make sense, you are making strides and celebrating the progress you’re making toward the advancement of your dreams.

“When the WHY is strong enough, the HOW is easily discovered.” ~ G. Westfal

When you are fully committed to your path, you are unencumbered by fear and doubt. Their power to hold you back is diminished significantly. Your conscious mind becomes emboldened by the results you’re getting and therefore begins to reprogram your subconscious mind that the new path you’re on is precisely where you rightfully belong.

5. People will enter your life to help you.

When your mind is set and you are determined to bring your dreams to fruition, people take notice. You’re different. While most people will be unable to determine just what it is about you that’s different, there are others who will take notice and be attracted to you.

“Success is not something you pursue, it is something you attract.” ~ Jim Rohn

The traits you will begin developing—determination, focus, tenacity, dedication—attract like-minded people. As a result, you will find mentors who will appear, ready and willing to help accelerate your progress and provide wise counsel to support your initiatives and objectives. You will find a fan base, ready and willing support your success. You’ll discover students who will be attracted to your success, providing an opportunity for you to “pay it forward”. And you should know that you will also find haters who will misunderstand your success and mistake it for luck or “overnight” success. It is important to note that these people have a role in how you develop as a leader despite their ill-conceived perspectives.

“The moment you make a determined and committed decision to change the course of your life, the course of your life will change.” ~ G. Westfal

Although the statement above may seem redundant, it is actually a profound revelation to the exciting journey that awaits. Of course, there are more than five things that will happen once you finally decide to start living your dreams. Your habits will change, your values will shift, you’ll overcome obstacles easier, you’ll become more optimistic, you’ll see solutions easier, you’ll have little interest in what others find entertaining, you’ll seek balance—physical, intellectual, spiritual. These are but a sampling of the profound changes you will experience as life will unfold and reveal a depth of intrigue and meaning far beyond your wildest imagination.

Seek change in your life. Know that you can indeed be, do, have, or become anything you desire. All it takes is a decision and a determined mindset to step away from where you are to where you want to be and who you wish to become. You’ll know when you have come to a life-changing decision because it will resonate deep within you unlike BEFORE. And in so doing, you will begin living a new life…the life of your dreams.

Until next time...

The Real Price of Waiting Until Tomorrow


Yesterday you said you’d do it tomorrow. Today is yesterday’s tomorrow. So, will you finally do today that which you said you’d do tomorrow? Or will tomorrow never materialize?

 
Our good intentions can end up being a perpetual cycle of apathy and restlessness  unless…we wake up and seize control to break the cycle by taking action to declare NOW as the time to take advantage of opportunity. Action is the precursor to accomplishment. Taking action isn’t always pretty or perfect, but the alternative is to remain stuck in circumstances that separate us from our dreams, goals, and aspirations.
 

“Carpe Diem: Seize the day.”

                                                                      ~ Horace: 23 B.C.

 
Accomplishments can easily elude us, despite our intentions, unless and until we discover the awareness of avoiding procrastination. To gain an upper hand on the ability to avoid procrastination we must first gain an appreciation for the fragility of time. The fact is, the clock is ticking at the same rate for each one of us. That same clock began to tick when we took our first breath and will stop when we take our last.
 

Time is the great equalizer. It does not discriminate. It does not care about winners and losers, excuses, fairness, or equality. You cannot “save” time in a traditional sense. The only way to manipulate time is to make the very best of every moment.

Time presents opportunity but demands a sense of urgency. Whatever your dream, goal, desire, or objective, start now! Every moment you wait is an opportunity that expires. After all, although we know precisely when our personal clock started, we don't know when it will end.


“A year from now that time will have passed. You will either be happy you took action or wish you had.” ~ G. Westfal

 
There is a cost associated with waiting until tomorrow. Waiting induces complacency. It offers an easy excuse to rest another day before the hard work begins. The problem with that philosophy is that waiting robs us of so many things, chiefly among them is the experience of personal growth.
 

We often believe that waiting for the “right time” will actually lead us to the right time—a time where all the conditions will be in perfect alignment for us to take action. The truth is, that perfect moment will never materialize because there is no such thing as a perfect moment. If you want something different you must do something different.

I was talking to a small group of people one evening about one of the books I had written when a man declared how he too would write a book someday. I smiled politely and encouraged him to begin at once, reminding him of the perishable nature of time. I also pointed out that the only difference between a writer and everyone else is that the writer writes!
 

“Of all the days of the week, the one I have never seen is Someday.” ~ G. Westfal

 
Time has a way of slipping right past us if we ignore its value. Look back upon a significant event in your life and try to recall when it actually took place. Chances are you’ll be surprised at how much time has passed. Awareness is the window that allows us to recognize the importance of time. A simple reminder to appreciate a moment goes a long way to help us gain a greater awareness of all that is right in front of us…right now.

Nowhere is this concept of a moment of time more revealing than when we actually miss an opportunity. How many moments have you missed because you didn’t seize an opportunity? How many experiences have you allowed to slip by, fully aware of the potential consequences of your decision not to act on your gut instinct? How many first steps, first words, business opportunities, thoughts, deeds, or actions have you missed because there is always tomorrow?


“And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon…

Little boy blue and the man in the moon…

‘When you coming home, dad?’ ‘I don’t know when…

But we’ll get together then…

You know we’ll have a good time then.’”  ~ Harry Chapin

           
Life is said to be “short” by those who look back upon their lives and “suddenly” realize the sheer amount of time they consumed by waiting for tomorrow. Despite many who will debate the semantics, tomorrow does in fact exist. It’s called today. So if you have been putting something off—for whatever reason—to be accomplished tomorrow, wake up to the fact that tomorrow is right in front you…right now!

Until next time...

~ G ~

How to Overcome the Urge to Quit

Perseverance is defined as the steady persistence in a course of action, purpose, or objective, despite difficulties, obstacles, discouragement, or an outright appearance of failure. The definition paints a picture of sheer determination against all odds and leads us to believe in the power of its core message—ultimate victory in spite of the odds and an ability to navigate through circumstance to achieve a desired end.



Every one of us has, at times, had to face the reality of making a decision to evaluate the power of our desire to achieve an objective, dream, or goal against the odds and obstacles that exist between where we are and we desire to be. In other words, your desire and resolve to achieve a worthy goal or objective can, may, or will be challenged. Your job is to tap into the power of your desire to see the obstacles for what they truly are—opportunities to overcome, chances to evaluate and analyze, milestones to measure progress, and course corrections to better navigate.
 


 

As we set out to achieve a goal, one of the most important initial steps we should take is to ensure our objective aligns with our core beliefs. Adopting someone else’s vision or motivations for achievement sets us up for failure from the start.
 


This perspective casts a light on the importance of connecting the goal with our core beliefs because it is our core beliefs that fuel the determination that will propel us through difficulties and provide the insight and awareness required to analyze and calculate our way around inevitable obstacles.
 

“If you can hold it in your heart, you can hold it in your hands.” ~ G. Westfal

 
I have long been a believer that, once you create a dream, goal, desire, or aspiration in your mind, you have the capacity to achieve it. That’s not to say that you have the ability to single-handedly achieve it (although you may), but that you have the capacity to achieve it. In other words, your achievement may require the physical, emotional, or psychological assistance of someone else or perhaps a team of people. It may require the perspective of an opposing viewpoint or the additive insight of a common and collaborative mind.

Now, keep in mind that capacity is entirely different than ability. Our ability to achieve a goal or objective is determined by our resolve to do whatever it takes to achieve it. Resolve is formed through a framework and process of following a few simple rules that, over time, become habits and rituals we adopt in our quest for change. Our habits and rituals eventually evolve into a lifestyle that effectively changes the course of our life to better align with our goals.


Despite the best of intentions, optimal conditions, and well-developed plans, we sometimes face obstacles that can give us enough pause to question whether our goal is worthwhile. Ever felt like quitting? Good news…you’re normal.

Even the most determined among us has second thoughts, doubts, frustrations, hardships, and occasional setbacks. When that happens, take a deep breath, and consider some of the following insightful perspectives to readjust and get back in the game when you find yourself feeling as if you’re ready to quit.

Find- Simon Sinek, Best-Selling author of Start with Why, tells us that our why – the very core of the psychological reasons we are motivated to pursue a goal – is the one driving factor that can get us through most any challenging circumstance if we effectively connect with it. Our why defines the essence of our desires and is the principle driver behind the goals and objectives we create.

Every one of us has a why. So, if this is true, then why do some people achieve more, faster, or higher than others. The answer comes down to one simple but profound concept—awareness through understanding.

When we truly understand our why we become intimately connected to it in such a way that we gain an emotional awareness advantage that is unstoppable. This drives a determination so strong that achievement is inevitable, with little regard to circumstance. That is not to say it will always be easy, but achievement will ultimately become a reality, because finding our compelling why sustains our drive to achieve...no matter what.

Fix – Of all the things we need to address in our life, nothing is more important than ensuring we strive to create a harmonious balance between body, mind, and spirit. One of the best ways to do this is to set your intentions, review or recall some things you are grateful for, meditate, work out, and set goals for the day. Living with intent is a difference-maker in terms of finding, fixing, and maintaining balance.
 


The act of fixing something typically insinuates that it is in a state of disrepair and in need of an adjustment. These adjustments can range from a simple attitude correction to a total reorganization of our priorities.

Attitude is contagious. If we are spreading a positive attitude it can be healthy (for us as well as those around us), but if you’re always looking at the ugly side of life then you need to reverse your thoughts if you expect to find your way forward in life. Fix this one aspect of our emotional outlook and the world begins to change before our very eyes.

Focus – One of the biggest mistakes we can make is to compare our pace with other people who are pursuing similar goals, yet, so many of us are drawn to the game of comparison. Why is that?

Almost every human being, with little exception, analyzes the “status” of other people in an effort to draw a distinction to their own life. It’s not an intentionally harmful practice unless the analysis results in more discouragement than inspiration.
 


It can be easy to become discouraged when we compare our life to others who are achieving goals more efficiently, seemingly easier, and more often than we are. It can easily make you feel inadequate, dissatisfied, and discouraged. In reality, when it comes to achievement, the conditions and circumstances of others is irrelevant if their achievements serve only to discourage you. One of the reasons is that perceptions can be deceptive. What may appear to be ideal may indeed be far from it.

Break free from the grip of other people’s reality. It doesn’t belong to you. Find and claim your own reality and conquer your goals using your own strengths, talents, and passions. That is the formula that produces real satisfaction and accomplishment.

Focus instills determination. Never give up on the goals that are purposefully aligned to your core beliefs and you will embark upon a journey of enlightened understanding – one that supports the intent of your desires and the true joy of life.
 
Just. Don't. Quit!

Until next time…
