About living the dream
Updated: Jan 7, 2021
What is the key to success? Lots of people say it is hard work, talent, being intelligent, street smartness, or just being there at the right time and the right place. What we have learned throughout time is that success is all about the mindset. How can you make it happen?
Here are 3 tips that we would like to share with you to start living your dream life:
1. Acknowledge that your thinking needs adjusting
Our society is skill-set driven that says that we need more education in order to achieve our goals.
One of our coachee once said: "When I started my personal business I started to hear a little voice in my head that would tell me that I can’t do it, it is impossible, or you do not have the right skills to make it happen. I asked myself, what is it that I can do? Should I go back to school, take seminars and workshops, read more books? I was freaking out.."
Throughout the DEEJA-coachings she started realizing that she was asking herself the wrong questions. Instead she started to look inside, at her own thinking and asked herself: "why do I hear this little voice?". It is then that she realised, that she had to work on her mindset: "I had to change my thinking from 'I can’t' to 'of course I can'".
Like the famous saying: “Whether you tell yourself you can, or you tell yourself you can’t, you are right.”
2. Vision boards are a must
We believe that if you put your dreams out there in the world, the universe is going to turn things around so that you will be served. Creating a vision board of your goals and dreams is a great way to visualize what you want in order to put it out there. Go wild, be as creative as you want to be because there is no wrong or right in this. What is important in this exercise is to be as specific and most of all clear about what you want.
The fact that you see it all the time is very motivating and can give you that extra push whenever you feel a bit down. Most of all it keeps your goals visible and alive, which gets you back on track whenever you have a moment where you are ‘lost in translation’.
As you achieve things that were on your board, take a moment and enjoy it. Imagine that feeling of looking at a section of your board and saying: ‘I did that’. Once you feel that, you will never want to stop!
3. Get yourself a mentor
A person to look up to as a role model makes you believe in your own abilities. Choose one who will be 100% honest with you about your strengths and weaknesses. Someone who invites you to observe and analyse them as well, so you may learn crucial skills from pure observation.
They also serve as a daily reminder that they have achieved their dream, and that it is possible for you to do so too. They already have found ‘the formula’ and if they could do it, you can too in your own way!
