Start living the life you IMAGINED
Back in January of 2014 I had put out a poll named “What is preventing YOU from accomplishing your dream, goal or aspirations? Here were the results as of today:
The voters had Self-Doubt or Confidence as the number one reason. Time or Dedication and Financial Reasons or Obligations were the number two reasons. Why do you think Self-Doubt or Confidence was number one?
Why are people afraid to pursue their dreams or aspirations? Is it better not to go after your dreams so you won’t fail? Absolutely NOT! I recall sometime back I had read an article which discussed when people were close to dying they wished they took more chances and didn’t worry about what others thought of them. They wished they did the things they wanted instead of going through the motions. Following the life they imagined. (This is my interpretation of the article.)
Can you imagine how many happy and satisfied people there would be in this world, if they pursued their goals, dreams or aspirations? There are so many people miserable because they are in a job they hate and stay for all the wrong reasons. These unsatisfied individuals contribute on spreading the misery around.
How do you live the life you imagined?
Start with creating an action plan. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What do you really want in your life?
- What do you need in your life to accomplish it?
- What steps will you take?
- What may prevent you from achieving it?
- What will you do to move past those obstacles and achieve what you want?
Right now the life you’re leading is this acceptable or satisfying to you? Or is there something more you want? Can you imagine how different your life would be if you followed these steps to accomplish the life you imagined? ~ Patti

I really like that you have added some questions for consideration at the bottom, Patti.
I wholeheartedly agree that there would be so many more happy people if we were all to follow our dreams, set plans and work towards them – it makes life more exciting and with bite sized steps to take, it gets you there a lot quicker than you’d even think!
I agree it does make life more exciting with bite size steps! Love that! Thanks for sharing. 🙂 – Patti
Love this post Patti. I see lots of people holding themselves back through fear, doubt and a lack of confidence. And I’ve done it too in the past. They can all be overcome, especially with some support. xx
Thank you, Wendy for the nice compliment about the post! 🙂 I agree, that we do sometimes hold ourselves back through fear, doubt and lack of confidence at times and through some support it really does makes a difference. Thank you for sharing. ~ Patti

Comment: I know that’s the killer for me is self doubt and confidence but I even look back right now and think of those things I could of and should have done and now I’m determined I’m not going to have any more regrets. It’s time to change that. The funny thing is that I think we all look at others and would never criticize them the way we do ourselves so why not believe in me. Lol
Isn’t it funny how we criticize ourselves much harder than anyone else. No regrets and live life to the fullest. Thanks for your insights. 🙂
