Get Your Own Dream

“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

 You are here means that you are brave enough to get your own dream. No jokes. Most people are too scared to even think about it. So accept my heartiest congratulations before you move ahead.

Step 1 Find the purpose of your life & translate it into your dream

We have been put on this earth for a purpose. But at the same time it is left on us to find it out. We can be truly successful if we do something that is in line with that purpose. So it is important to find it.

However, It is not easy to find it. Keep on trying different things, make mistakes. You will know what you like and what you dislike. And one day, the realization will come to you. You will know that this is what you always wanted to do. It will seem so right that you will not be able to imagine doing any thing else. You will feel “high” when you do it.

And most important, you have found your purpose when it no longer revolves around you. It is not a better job, better house or better car. They are just goals and give you momentary happiness. It will bring you true happiness that comes from contributing to other people’s life. We were put on this earth to help others, and that is the greatest gift of all.

There are three questions that you need to ask yourself, that will help you to discover your purpose. Think, Think hard. It’s your life, and you must think seriously about it. Be honest in answering these questions and there are good chances that by the end, you will have at least some idea about your purpose.

(Download the free ‘Find your Purpose’ worksheet that will help you to answer these questions.)

Please don’t get disheartened if you can not answer them in one go. Take time. It may take a few hours or a few days to find these answers from within you. Just keep on pondering and it will strike you.

 Who am I?

Write down who you think you are as a person. What are your attributes that makes you different than others, such as sharp, intelligent, emotional, sentimental, rebellious etc.

Write down the things that you have developed or learned naturally over years? Such as you are good speaker, writer, make friends easily, ability to love unconditionally etc.

The above will give you insight about what you truly are. Most of the things you already know but have been taking for granted, not recognizing the unique gifts they actually are.

What do I love to do?

There are a number of things that we do in life; most of them are because someone else expects us to do. However, there are a few things that we simply love doing. Given a choice, these are the things that you will do, even if there are no material returns for them. Write them down, even if you are not doing it now.

Once you have written down what you will love to do, write down why you want to do them. This may be little difficult to express in words, but with little patience you will be able to do it. Once you are able to answer this ‘Why’, you are well on your way to find the purpose of your life, as it will revolve round what you want to do.

Which experiences in life were really fulfilling to me?

Everyday we have a number of experiences. But there are a few that we find very fulfilling. These are those moments when we were just being ourselves. Reflect back and write down such experiences.

Write down in details, what it was like when you were going through it.

How were you feeling?

What was so special, meaningful or important in it that makes it so fulfilling.

Once you are able to answer these questions you will be able to define the purpose of your life. Try to word it out as precisely as possible. Write a number of drafts before you finalize one statement of purpose. A word of caution; Don’t write a purpose to impress others, or simply because it sounds great. Write it because you really feel for it, and believe in. However, there is a word of caution. This may bot be an activity that you will be able to complete in a single sitting in few minutes, It may take several days before you will be able to write down a purpose statement that you will know with in your heart as true for you. But once, you do it, your life will be changed for ever.

Write it in big bold letters and put it up in you own private place. This statement is your dream.

CONGRATULATIONS !!!
