There has been a lot written and said about various methods of realizing our dreams. The older generation will tell you that all it takes is hard work. Unfortunately that is simply not true anymore. There is more to making your dreams come true today than working hard. Then there are the lifestyle gurus who preach positive thinking and a belief in Fate. Again, faith in fate alone will not make anything move ahead. If you really want to move ahead in life, here are some strategies you can do in tandem:
Hard Work Does Pay
Nothing is going to work out in life if you don’t work hard. It may look like some people have it easy, but that is only because their hard work is non-physical; the level of stress they are under might make you run for the hills. You also need to update the concept to match the heavily computerized digital century: work smart, not just hard. Don’t just bust your ass working long hours doing one job. If there’s something else you enjoy doing in your spare time like remodelling kitchens newcastle then go ahead and do that so that it can work as a display piece for when you want to take that up full time someday.
There are far too many stories about how visualization worked out for us to dismiss this technique as fluff. Simply imagining what your future looks like isn’t enough. You have to visualize proactively. This means creating dream boards that you see every day; if you want modern kitchens Sydney that is all steel and chrome and smooth, then find a picture in a magazine, cut it out and paste it or pin it on your dream board so that you see it every day. Then figure out a way to find money for it and write that in big, block letters next to it so that you are motivated to go after that goal. This also works online if you browse that website every day or get a daily reminder.
Positive thinking is a proven thinking designed to make you feel better. In no way does this mean putting a ‘happy’ spin on every incident; if you are being overworked or taken advantage of in your workplace, do not ever spin that as a sign you are trusted by the establishment. Positive thinking is having a ‘can-do’ attitude, turning any situation to your advantage and using anything and everything as a stepping stone towards your goal. It helps when you start viewing everything around you in that lens. Positive thinking is a good way to ensure that you remain focused on your dreams and not get distracted too much by negative emotions that sap your energy.
