Do you think you can make your dreams come true? Dreams seem far away and unattainable. We have only a vague concept of how to create the desired outcome. Did you know that you can make your dreams come true by making one decision at a time?
The power of choice
Look upon a choice as an experiment, a way to travel more deeply in one direction until the path and the landscape becomes more familiar and you are equipped to make an informed decision. If you don’t like where you are, simply make another choice and move to explore another direction.
The current of opportunity
Each day you step into a new current of opportunity. It’s like being on a grand adventure with unexpected panoramas around every curve. You may think you seek one thing and stumble upon a something altogether different that is perfect! You have only to make a choice. Step into the current of opportunity and see where it takes you.
A new view
Whether it’s a slow dawning or a sudden ah-ha, each moment of your day moves you into a new position that offers a uniquely different view. You may finally notice the lovely curve in the river at the bottom of the valley or identify a safe route to the top of the mountain. Each new position you find yourself in offers a new viewpoint. Be flexible. Be aware. When you arrive at a new view, observe how you feel, what you think, and what new ideas occur to you. Use that fresh awareness to make your next decision.
Every decision is perfect
You may not think so when looking back, but every decision you made was perfect for who you were, what you knew and what you needed at the time. Have no regrets, whatever the outcome. The decision you make in this moment will be as perfect as the one you made ten years ago and the one you will make tomorrow.
When the time is right, the right decision will be made.
I made a life-changing decision in the past week. I committed to a particular journey by signing up to take a course. That choice forces me to make specific decisions about what I want my life to look like and how I want to be in service. In making those decisions I will align my choices with my beliefs and my expectations. Each choice will increase my commitment to this particular direction. I feel the power of excitement underneath the decision and am prepared to go where it takes me.
Decisions carry our dreams
My dreams got lazy. I thought I was retired and my world slowed to a crawl. I spent a few years working at redefining myself. I didn’t feel very useful or valued. Until a friend asked me what I’d like to tackle over the next 30 years. I’m 82! However, the inner switch was instantaneous and profound. I turned my vision forward a long way. And I got very, very busy. What decision will propel you forward?
The unspoken language
There are signs everywhere that direct you to a positive decision. There are signals that indicate which choice is best in the moment. We have to learn to interpret them. Emotion is the key component. If you feel uncomfortable about a choice, heed that subconscious advice. Your inner voice knows more than your conscious mind. The changes I have made recently are filled with emotion, including tears, followed by increasing serenity. I’m going in the right direction. Each day I look for the unexpected gift, the sign, and the opportunity that suggests a new choice. Then I make my decisions.
Let your dreams be flexible
Have a soft dream. Notice how it feels but don’t pay too much attention to what is looks like. Make a decision based on the moment and your inner guidance then take your time exploring what shows up. Your choices will lead you to your dreams.
