//DREAM//

A few months ago, one of my coaches introduced me to positive affirmations.  This is simply taking your dreams, and desired outcomes, writing them down in a way that shows you already having them…like if your dream is to own a 1969 Chevy Camaro, white with orange racing strips…instead of saying I want to have a 1969 Camaro…you write it as I own a white with orange racing stripes 1969 Camaro RS/SS and drive it twice a week…

What is the difference?  When you start seeing yourself and experiencing your dreams as reality your mind has a way of making things happen….no I am not talking about magic, or voodoo…or anything crazy…

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford

So if you truly believe that owning your dream car, or house, or finding your soulmate is a reality and within your grasp, then you will be able to do the things and become the person that it takes to get those things…if you believe they are not possible for you, then you will not get them….

This is a really great thing in theory, and sounds great when you read it, but whatever right?  How can telling yourself that you have something that you don’t make a difference? That is a bunch of crap…thinking different won’t make me rich…happy…give me the dream car…

Well of course not…just thinking or dreaming doesn’t give you things…but it opens your mind to possibilities that allow you the opportunity to take action and make your dreams become reality…

Still not feeling me?  Let me tell you something that came up for me this morning…

For years, my wife and I have talked about wanting to have some land, enough that we could have cows and chickens, and the kids can ride ATVs or horses..whatever…We also desired to adopt another child…third we desired to have our dream house, with very specific specifications…but we saw these things as impossible things that were on top of obstacles that were too hard to overcome…so we didn’t see them as reality…or even within our grasp…so we talked and dreamed about them, but never took any actions that would move us closer to those dreams…

A month ago, I took all my dreams and desired outcomes and wrote them down on a sheet of paper…there were over 90 of them…these were REALLY specific things…not I want to spend time with my family…they were I am going on a weekly date night with my wife…I am making X amount of money at my job…I have flipped X houses…etc…

This morning as I was listening to my affirmations before my workout, I realized that events that are going on in my life were a direct result of this exercise…In the past week I have put a piece of land under contract, I am working with lender to setup financing for purchasing the land, and also to do do construction for building a home…I have an appointment with an architect this week to begin designing our house…

this didn’t happen by accident…there is nothing that has changed in my situation in the past month…I didn’t win the lottery, or anything…the only thing that changed is my thinking…I became open to the thought that these things are within my reach…Because of this change, I looked at things differently, and instead of thinking…oh I can’t do that…I can’t have that…..I started thinking HOW can I have that…How can I do that???  Asking these questions made it just like any other problem..I just had to find the solution…

Have you given up on your dreams?

Are do you believe that you can change and have the things that you want?
