As a child what did you always dream of doing? What did you envision? How did you see what you had hoped to occur? Perhaps this vision transformed as you grew up and it became even better than imagined. Regardless of the outcome, you thought about it, you gave it your undivided attention, and you visualized it coming to life.
So what happened to the dream? Did it get taken away in the whirlwind of life? As it was swept away did it leave particles of debris that were all around and in need of being cleaned up? Well, for this moment, forget about the tornado that swept away your dream…forget about whether or not you think your dream can manifest, and simply go back to daydreaming about it. Close your eyes, describe it, feel it, and imagine you doing it.
Now in this correct “playground” of the mind, allow your heart and mind to enjoy the recess of having and doing what it yearns for! There are no limits, no rules, this is YOURS and YOURS alone.
Now open your eyes and realize how difficult this may have been for you. Remember how this was an everyday occurrence as a child, without being told to take time out to do so?
Herein lies the problem. We have grown accustomed to no longer dreaming, and as a result we get “stuck” in a life that just doesn’t seem to fit us anymore. Day dreaming is powerful, because as Walt Disney once said, “if you can dream it, you can achieve it. Remember this whole thing started with a mouse.”
But how do you begin to tackle something you dreamed up with a life jam-packed with endless to-do lists?
1st, take inventory of your day. Look and see in a given day, where you spend the most time. See if you can omit things that aren’t necessary and that are simply time killers.
2nd, make YOU and your dream a priority. Nourish it, cultivate it, and visualize it everyday. This could take as little as 5 minutes a day or more. The most powerful element here, is that you are giving your focus to the dream.
3rd, plan when you will take this time daily. As you plan, you will follow. Try to make it consistent, whether it be first thing in the morning, or maybe before you to to bed at night. Whichever works best for you, as this is YOUR dream.
4th, lets start! It has been researched that it takes 21 days to 30 days to form a new habit or break a bad habit. In this case, we will take 30 days and become dreamers again, and this new habit must be nourished daily.
Since forming new habits or breaking bad habits solo is sometimes overwhelming, lets do it together!
For the next 30 days, we will be on this journey together. Think about a dream of yours, however big or small you think it is. Now, commit to giving it attention for the next 30 days. Again, don’t judge your dream, choose the first thing that comes to mind.
As I’ve mentioned before, you can preach all day to someone about what you would like them to do, but until they are inspired, generally a shift doesn’t occur. So my hopes for you are to follow us on this 30 day dream challenge, invite anyone and everyone to join, and get fueled thru this article for today plus 3 more out of the 30 days. On the days in between the articles, check out the other 26 days of inspiration on our website “mangofuel.co” and find more to ignite YOUR dream and set it on fire!
Have the best FUEL-filled day ever!
