dreams and goals

live your life pursuing your dreams and goals, by your values and beliefs.

“The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy ideal. He’s the person who says, “I’m going to become this…” and begins working towards that goal.” ~Earl Nightingale

I want you to live a happy and successful life.

  • what makes you happy?
  • what does success mean to you?
  • what is most important to you?
  • how do you want to live your life?

Have you taken time to think about yourself? Do you know your values? What makes you happy? What do you want to do? What do you want to experience? What do you want to give?

In life, we are responsible for ourselves. You are the only person to make yourself happy.

Live Your Truth!

committed

what are you committed to?

are you committed to becoming better? do you have goals that you are committed to?

how committed are you? are you achieving your goals? are you becoming better?

mood-nature-river-water-90771.jpeg

commitment is the decision and dedication to a goal, to a task, to being or to doing.

when you are committed, you continually make decisions to be or to do what you are committed to. the commitment gives you power to be who you want to be, to do what you want to do.

your commitment creates the energy for you to move forward, to becoming better to attaining your goal.

do you have goals that you have not reached? are you being your best and doing your best?

if you are not, what are you committed to? it is something other than your goal. you are committed to the pleasure of being or doing something else.

there is a tipping point to commitment, a point at which you be and do what is needed to be better, to reach your goal. everyone’s tipping point is different, if you are not at your tipping point you are not fully committed. you are not feeling enough pain to fully commit to your goal, to being better.

why do you want to be better? why do you want to attain that goal? your why needs to be bigger than the pleasures that can distract you from your goals.

are you committed to being better? are you committed to your goals?

Values are the foundation for living happy successful lives.

You deserve happiness, abundance and health. The key to your happiness is you. When you know your values, and live your life by your values, you are a happier and healthier person. Often people live their lives without knowing their values and they make decisions based on other people’s expectations. When people make decisions this way they aren’t living the life they are meant to live! They are unhappy and live a life of lack, of wanting more in one or more areas of their lives.

I used to live my life without knowing my values. I wasn’t living my truth. I wasn’t being the me that I wanted to be, I wasn’t doing what I wanted to do, and I wasn’t living how I wanted to live.

Have you ever been in a canoe on a windy day, and paddling just didn’t seem to get you anywhere? I’ve been in a canoe on a windy day, and my paddling wasn’t getting me anywhere. The canoe would go this way and that way. I was facing the wrong direction. I tried to correct my direction by turning the canoe. I was going in a new direction but it still wasn’t the direction that I wanted to go. I was going around in circles and not getting anywhere.

This is how my life felt when I wasn’t living by my values. I made decisions based on what was expected of me, or what I thought was expected of me. I didn’t have my values clearly defined and written down. I didn’t have significant goals for myself in all areas of my life.

It was like the canoe going in all different directions but the direction that I wanted it to. I was going around in circles in my life.

When I was in the canoe on that windy day, it was a challenge for me to get the canoe going in the right direction without making some major changes. I had to trim the canoe, to find a better balance from where to paddle. I turned myself around in the canoe so that I paddled backward to move forward. After struggling, I found my balance and was able to move in the direction that I wanted to more easily and steadily.

My balance was off in my life as well. I was unhappy and unhealthy.

I gradually realized that I wasn’t living by my values, and what my values meant to me. I read a book, ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ by Stephen Covey. I clarified my values, I wrote my values down along with what the value meant to me. I set significant goals in all areas of my life.

I found my balance and started growing in the direction that I wanted to go. I started being who I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do and living how I wanted to live!

I took responsibility for my life. I am happy and harmonious with my mind at peace with my heart.

Values are a belief that is meaningful to you. Values are priorities that tell you how to spend your time, right here, right now. Stephen Covey says, “(values) are the source of our passions in life, and they help us determine where we focus our energies.”

When you know your values and what they mean to you; creating goals and making decisions are easier. Your values are your guidance system.

And like finding the balance in a canoe on a windy day, knowing your values is like finding your balance for your life. You choose to live by your values, and living by your values creates your happy and harmonious life.

Spiraling Up

Growth and transformation are ever spiraling upwards. The goals that we create for ourselves, the visions we build and imagine for ourselves guide us to take action in becoming who we want to become, in doing what we want to do and in experiencing what we want to experience.

Our vision that we continue to make clear from our dreams and desires determines the goals that we have in our lives. Our goals and visions for our present moment, for the life that we want to live. As we do and be what our goals determine us to do and be we create the life that we want to live. As we live the life that we have imagined, our vision expands and grows. An expanding vision creates new and expanded goals. As we do and be what our new and expanded goals guide us to do and be, we create the new life that we want to live. As we live the new life that we have imagined, our vision expands and grows again, we create more new and expanding goals. We grow continually, ever spiraling upwards.

Life Dreams and Desires

I want to create the life of my dreams.

Am I fully living? Am I being who I want to be? Am I doing what I want to do? Am I experiencing what I want to experience?

Values guide you to confidently and calmly make decisions, and goals direct you to keep growing and expanding, to take action in being who you want to be and what you want to do.

Goals are a part of your guidance system to create the life of your dreams and desires. Goals are to grow, to experience and be the best you.

“The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy ideal.” ~Earl Nightingale

Life is all about you, what is most important to you, what fulfills you, what do you most enjoy? Your passions drive you to your life purpose and life goals.

Fulfillment is feeling joy and gratitude for who you are being, what you are doing, what you are experiencing. Fulfillment is enjoying your life journey. Fulfillment is living your truth!

Living your truth is pursuing and living your life goals, your dreams and desires, your passions. Living your truth is being happy, experiencing life, living life fully with purpose.

 

“We are always becoming, we are always creating. Today I am more than I was yesterday, tomorrow I am more than I am today.”

Are you fully living? Are you creating the life of your dreams?

Question Change

I’ve been receiving a message in various ways; a quote, an audio, a reading. The message – change yourself in order to reach your goals, your dreams and desires.

The idea, thought, has been on my mind. And I’ve been thinking and wondering.

dsc02551

What have I changed?

Am I living my truth? Am I living to become the best me? What is most important to me? And, what do I want?

Am I putting what is most important to me NOW and my most important wants first? Is my NOW moment aligned with my most important dreams and desires?

Am I being grateful? Am I being positive?

I’m asking the questions. Am I going deep inside and answering the questions?

It is harder to go deep and connect to my inner being during challenging times. I need to have more faith and trust in myself and the Universe. It can be so hard to let go and allow.

To allow, to make, to do – change. And to grow.

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” ~ Wayne Dyer

What can I do? What change can I make to create the life that I dream of living?

What change can you make to create the life that you dream of living?

Present Moment Awareness

I feel like I am in present moment awareness and growing, learning and expanding. Living in present moment awareness enjoying my journey and experiences.

I don’t feel like I’m in present moment awareness choosing the positive choice, what makes me feel good and what will move me closer to achieve my goals and visions.

How different are the two?

  • Being in present moment awareness and enjoying the journey and moments
  • Being in present moment awareness with awareness for my goals and visions being, doing, and experiencing life to achieve my dreams and desires

Am I choosing in the moment, choosing positive, choosing happy, choosing to reach my goals and visions? I am saying ‘no’ to some things to say ‘yes’ to my goals and visions, dreams and desires. I am aware of that and happy and grateful for that.

What am I expecting to feel? I need to choose to celebrate too! Maybe I’m comparing and judging too much? That feels like a correct idea. Awareness.

  • Awareness of the moment and enjoying the journey and experience
  • Awareness for positive thinking of goals and visions, dreams and desires

I think both present moment awareness’ are needed. Enjoy the journey and when I become aware of negative feelings – choose to think positively and take action on my goals and visions, dreams and desires.

Are you living in present moment awareness? Are you enjoying your life journey and moments? Are you choosing to move in the direction of your goals and visions, your dreams and desires?

Personal Growth

I am very enthusiastic and energetic about my personal growth. It is something that I am passionate about and is one of my core values.

I am eager to do activities, workshops and learn. I am curious about myself, my wellbeing and growth and expansion.

I love reading and studying and always have more than one book that I am currently reading about personal growth. I listen to positive, motivational and inspirational audios.

books

I have routines in the morning and evening for me to focus on being positive, keeping my goals dreams and desires in front of me in the NOW moments. I am aware of my feelings and choose positive with gratitude, imagining and visualizing.

I want to learn, grow and expand every day!

6 years ago I was a different person. I didn’t have routines, I wasn’t reading personal growth books or listening to positive audios. I didn’t know my core values and what they mean to me. I didn’t know much of what I truly wanted. I didn’t have goals and visions for my dreams and desires, I barely had dreams and desires.

I read ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ by Stephen Covey and it changed my life! I clarified and defined my core values, I created and defined goals for all areas of my life.

I’ve reached a lot of those goals. My goals, dreams and desires have changed, grown and expanded.

vision board 2

I enjoy my life journey of growth and expansion. I enjoy being who I want to be, doing what I want to do and experiencing what I want to experience. I enjoy living my truth!

What are you doing to grow and expand? What are your dreams and desires?

Health and Wellbeing

I was overweight. Obese. I struggled to get rid of weight, and I struggled to maintain weight. I tried different diets, different foods, and different workouts. My weight went up and down for many years.

Then…

I changed my attitude. I started changing my thoughts to positive thinking about what I want. I started visualizing how I wanted to look and feel.

As my attitude changed to more and more positive, my environment did too. A more positive environment created a more positive attitude. A more positive attitude created a more positive environment. And so it grew and expanded in that circular way, in many areas of my life all at the same time!

My goal weight was one hundred fifty something pounds, one-five-any number.

I visualized. I visualized myself being fit and toned kayaking wearing a bikini. That was my image of the vision for my weight (and still is).

I released the weight and kept releasing. Surpassing my goal of one-five-any number.  Surpassing my goal of wearing the same size clothes as I did in high school. I look and feel better than I did. I am healthier and more fit than I was in high school. I am getting younger, not older.

Now I am curious and wonder what more can I do for my body? How much better can I feel than even this? What more can I do?

I enjoy eating a mostly paleo diet. I enjoy the foods I eat. I enjoy feeling good in my body. I enjoy high energy! The foods I eat taste amazing and satisfy my nutritional body needs and emotional food pleasures. I am fulfilling myself with the foods I eat.

I enjoy yoga, strength training and cardio workouts. I love being outside – kayaking, running, hiking and earthing. I enjoy free flowing movements, my body free of tension and stress. I am fulfilling myself by connecting to nature and myself with my activities.

I have found that the better I feel the more I want to eat the good foods for my body and be more active.

I have desires that have expanded and grown to how I want to look and feel and the strength that I want to have. I want to become a black belt in tae kwon do. I want to enjoy many high adventure activities.

My health and fitness is about physical wellbeing as well as mental wellbeing, emotional wellbeing and spiritual wellbeing.

My health and wellbeing are a priority for me. When I made my health and wellbeing a priority, making the healthy choices for food and being active became easy, fun and good feeling!

What do you want for your health and wellbeing?
