What’s my own recipe for self-realization, making my dreams come true and taking up new challenges?
I’m definitely not an expert on this subject, but I can certainly point out a few rules, which won’t bring you any harm, just on the contrary, they may only help you. Everything, I’ll be discussing here, is based on my own experiences.
Rule number 1
Forget the past. Of course, I don’t want you to hit your head against the wall to lose your memory. Remember about who you are, but try hard to make the unpleasant experiences and traumas fade away, don’t allow them to obscure the picture of what’s the most important… which means here and now, as well as the perspectives of development. When it comes to traumas, I don’t always think about serious dramas. Sometimes one word, one seemingly unimportant event can block you for years. Get rid of it here and now. Forget it. Try to draw conclusions from this experience. Start working on what’s important for you. Develop. The past belongs to the past and it needs to stay right there.
I hope that you are prepared and you did your homework. Unfortunately, if you haven’t done it for any reason, I won’t be able to invite you to my next lesson. Each phase of this journey is important, that’s why according to the rule number 1 you need to forget about the past and the daemons it hides. As I’ve already mentioned it’s a process, of course, but you need to make at least the first step. Done?
If yes, my dear readers, I’ll address each of you personally. I’ll open the gate and once you decide to cross it, there’s no turning back. Are you ready?
Rule number 2
After fighting daemons from the past, you’ll become a free person, a person whose limitations result purely and simply from giving up ideas and accompanying fear of what’s new and what’s unknown. Let yourself visualize and verbalize your dreams. What does it mean? Don’t be sacred of dreaming and don’t leave things for later, as later may never come. Try to see your ideas and everything you’d like to gain with the eyes of imagination. Create a picture which will belong only to you and will accompany you from now on, remember that since it belongs only to you, it can always be modified. Next, try to articulate everything you’d like to gain, first you’ll be the only listener, then make others listen to you. Don’t be afraid of failures, as they are a natural part of the whole process. Instead try to create a specific plan according to which you’ll take your actions in the future. And your adventure will start here and now. What’s the best about it? Surely, the fact that you have no idea where this new path may lead you, maybe way further than you expect.
The inevitable has come… which means it’s the right time for the rule number 3. This rule should bring you most pleasure, despite the fact that even here one cannot do without any obstacles faced on the way. After fighting daemons from the past you have become free people, ready for taking up new challenges and innovative actions. And just after visualizing and verbalizing your dreams you will be ready to work hard to make your dreams come true.
Rule number 3
If you can dream it, you can win it. At the beginning some things may seem to be impossible for you, that’s true. Try to build a stable base and just like an octopus spread your tentacles in different directions, not only to derive knowledge and skills from various sources, but also to open the doors of new possibilities. The more such connections you have, the easier it becomes. Of course, if you want your success to be entirely yours, you need to work on it on your own. However, sometimes you will need the right support from specialists who are necessary for the right implementation of the new projects. Don’t be scared of spreading your wings, as only the first step is the most difficult, later you’ll be all downhill!
See you around!
