Chasing Your Dreams

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Today we live in a world where things appear to move at a fast pace!  From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep we are constantly connected.

With social media readily accessible it is very easy to get caught up in the negativity and trauma’s of other people’s lives.  Have you ever wondered why people do this (and I’m as guilty as anyone else of this).  They do it so that they can pass their negativity on others so that they go away feeling better about themselves whilst your left contemplating their misery.  So what has this got to do with chasing your dreams?[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5420″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border”][vc_column_text]In 2009 my wife and I made a massive decision to quit our jobs and set up our own business.  When we told people what we were planning, you can probably imagine what we were told.

“Don’t do it!”

“You already have a job”

“It won’t work”

Well seven years on and here we are!  Yes we’ve had our ups and downs and its been hard but if I had the choice of living my old life or doing what I’ve done, I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

We are only on this planet once and over the past few years have removed people out of my life who are negative and instead surrounded myself with like-minded people.

Your reality is only a perception of your imagination so when people say they have no luck or nothing ever goes their way, that is because they think that way and therefore reinforce it into reality.

Phil NewtonI want my children to grow up where the only barrier to their success will be their own imagination.  I want them to constantly chase their dreams, not mine or anyone else’s, but their’s.  I want them to have an abundance of success in whatever form this takes and for them not to feel guilty for it.

So what I want you to do if you’re reading this and don’t feel that you are living the life your deserve are 3 simple things:

  1.  Before you go to sleep and when you wake up spend 5 minutes visualising what your perfect day looks like.  Imagine the smells, the tastes, what is said in the conversations.  You’ll be amazed at what will start to happen.
  2. Get rid of the negativity.  I am not ashamed to say it has been over 12 months since I spoke to my oldest brother.  My parents still feel the need to listen to his trauma’s because he’s their son.  Well I for one, decided enough was enough.
  3. Be grateful for the little things.  Each day write down three things your grateful for.  Whilst writing this today I’ve been grateful for (1) my amazing family (2) for my daughter who can nearly crawl and (3) for being open to the possibility of what the next few months hold as I take my business in a new direction.

It’s okay to have set backs and somedays things will get you down.  The key is to snap yourself out of it and turn it into a positive.  By doing this regularly you will reprogram your mind and new neuro pathways will be formed.

So don’t wait for tomorrow or next week, start chasing your dreams today![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
