Turning Dreams Into Goals – 3 Tips

fa2a867ee58540395b0823fdb9bff326

One way to turn your dreams into goals and then into reality is by developing your personal set of success principles.

Abundant living requires you to do things differently than those whom are stuck in whatever routine that keeps them from succeeding. Having clear principles that are geared to success, and that give you actions you can follow along, measurable actions, will turn your dreams of abundant living into reality.

1. Attend your vibration first.

Your state of mind is the most important asset and most important tool to create abundance. Get into a mindset that combines gratitude, with optimism and determination. A willingness to be thankful for what you have – and the lessons you learned. A knowing that, there are opportunities for those who are willing to look for them, and that failure are only lessons in disguise, and last, making a true commitment to doing whatever it takes to get to where you want to be.

2. Action plan

Compile a list of small daily actions that you can take toward your goal. The key word in this step is small. A small action does not take much time, but if stacked and combined with other small actions, the momentum you are beginning to create will carry you toward your goals.

3. Commit.

Make yourself a promise, a vow if you will and thoroughly commit to the road you have planned on taken. Only a intense commitment to not stop, to adjust steps if needed, but to not stop, no matter what the world throws at you will carry you through to success. You can not and will not succeed without a strong commitment to your goals. Write this commitment on a piece of paper. Read it daily, at least once a day.

 

These three steps are only the beginning, but they will set you on the right direction toward the path of abundance. Start today. Start now. Your point of power is in this moment.

Being Of Service

Being of Service

Today, ask yourself and the Universe this question:

“How can I be off service today?”

I always smirked at this sentence, because I did not understand it. Being of service does not mean, giving yourself and all of what you have to benefit others, in an act of self-sacrifice. Being of service is actually bringing and creating value. If you solve a problem, issue, question or can give insight from a different point of view someone might have never seen before, you are being of service. The higher the quality your “being of service” is, the more value you bring to the world and in return you will receive value – may it be through connection, or in best case scenarios, monetary compensation. If you can find a way to make “Being Of Service” your job, combined with your inner most passion, nothing – and I mean nothing – is impossible.

Kindness

I survived an abusive childhood filled with fear. In one particular instance I was so scared, that I thought the only option I had was to run away. I was 16.

So I did, not knowing where to go, I walked into the mission at our train station, a place that was a refuge for those homeless and stranded. If they had space, they allowed you to stay, for a night. There were no beds, just blankets and sleeping bags, a cup of hot tea and a slice of bread with jam, but for me it was a refuge, a safe place.

An older, homeless man, dirty from living on the street, with un-kept hair, and a rucksack that held everything he owned showed me warm smile, an ear, and patience. He made sure I was safe, and allowed me to cry, why he sat there, keeping me company.

To this day – I am 42 now – I will never forget the sweet kindness this man showed me. He gave me what he had, which was empathy, something I did not know from my home. A bigger present than anything I every received before.

I have no idea what happened to him. After that day, I never saw him again, but I am grateful for his presence, however fleeting, and always will be.

May you all find someone to share your space, when you are in need.

Welcome To 2015!

So, traditionally this is the time for New Years resolution. I had always shunned resolutions, as they are usually abandoned before they even had a chance to sprout. But something about this year is different.

Welcome 2015

2014 has been such a turbulent year, that for 2015 I need clear direction. In order to achieve that, considering that we are self-employed, homeschool our children and belong to an alternative religion, any structure we give to a year has to come from ourselves. There is no one to tell us what needs to be done when, we decide. That freedom is wonderful, but it takes discipline if any meaningful work is to be done.

Therefore I chose to go for the New Years resolution, among other things (like using structures apps and programs to help me run the day to day of our lives), and I want to list a few of these here. Maybe in a year, when it is time to review the previous months, life will show itself as a little more calm.

Well, I can at least plan to make the trip a little smoother.

So here are my resolutions (which in true Law of Attraction fashion, I am posting in present tense)

1. I am loosing 15 pounds. I am currently heavier than I have ever been, touching the 140 mark, and I do not like it. Okay, I am now over 40, with a thyroid condition, but I am not giving myself a break here. It is time be back in shape. If I find any books, products or any blog post from other bloggers that help me along the way, I will share them here.

2. I am increasing our income threefold. I have done it before, so I can do it again. With that I mean hubby and I, and we got a pretty solid plan, and are a great team, so that is so workable. One of the ways to achieve this, is by using abundance magick and law of attraction. I will write about that, on the blog you are currently reading.

3. I am moving to Los Angeles. I have been talking about this for 4 years now, and every time something came up. This time, we have the means, the plan, the time frame, the combined efforts and energy, so that will happen. We got to do this before end of April. Did I mention we currently are living in Florida? Not sure, if I want to write about that anywhere yet, but knowing myself, I probably will.

4. I am writing more. Deadlines and all, I am making a list and sticking to it. I will post any updates on publishing schedule on my writing blog. I got a blogging schedule for all of my blogs, and plenty of resources to structure my offline writing. Any great (or not so great) writing books I find will be reviewed on my writing blog.

5. I am organized. I grew up with an abusive perfectionist adoptive father. So I became disorganized, slightly chaotic, and anti-structure. That does not co-exist well with the needs of bookkeeping, payroll and taxes. Just like it does not work well with kids who want to get into college. So, I bought the above mentioned apps and software, bookkeeping essentials, created a daily planner, and I am ready to go. Wish me luck. (I will write about those too – not on my spiritual blog, or my writing blog, but on my productivity blog – yes, I have three blogs!)

6. I practice a more consistent spiritual practice. The last year, I have practiced my Witchcraft on a very irregular schedule. Mind you, I am not Wiccan, I am a Hedgewitch and solitary, so there is no need for structure, expect a personal one. I feel that I can learn a lot from a more regulated, even if self-regulated structure, and will explore that in depth. And of course, as with everything, I will write about it. And that would be on this, exact blog.

So here it is, my list (albeit incomplete, considering that other goals involve other people, and I value their privacy) for 2015. This year, I know, with the help of the Gods, will be my best year yet. I am ready and open for all of the changes and wonderful experiences, as well as the lessons that it holds within, and I am grateful for the present that every moment of the coming year is.

In parting, I wish you all the best as well, as you envisioned, and however it is best for you.
