Live the Life of YOUR Dreams! There Is No One That Is Going To STOP You But Yourself!
The 4 common things that get in your way of Living the Life of YOUR Dreams!
Fear: Fear is a natural part of life. But, what’s amazing is that it’s a learned behavior. You weren’t born fearful. In fact, you’re more or less born with a clean emotional slate. But then life happens to you and you get scared to take chances. You let FEAR stand in they way of your TRUE Happiness. Remember when you were a small child you were fearless you did not let fear stop you. NOW you automatically look at the negative instead of the positive. Just remember, that risk, reward, and bliss go hand in hand.
Doubt: Self doubt is one of the most insidious things in our society. This is also another learned behavior that is a byproduct of all the things that happen to you over the course of your life. Think about how much and how often this has gotten in the way of you living the life of your dreams and you’ll eventually be motivated to get rid of self doubt in your life.
Uncertainty: You have to let it all go, fear, doubt, uncertainty. The truth is certainty is something that will never be guaranteed in your life. If life was completely predictable it wouldn’t be interesting at all.
All or Nothing Thinking: All or nothing thinking is such a huge barrier to accomplishing goals. This kind of thinking often causes people not even start pursuing their goals. I encourage you not to concern yourself with how you’re going to reach the end goal. Where you’ll start is not where you’ll end in many cases. So just take the first step and focus on today.
The life of your dreams is not as far out of reach as you might think it is. You have to be willing to make a few short-term sacrifices for many long-term gains. So, what are you doing to move towards the life of your dreams?

It may be obvious to you that when I ask people who are not living their dream life why they’re not living it, they offer up a slew of excuses. It’s as though a laundry list of reasons roll off their tongues and out the door. Before I can reply, they’ve convinced themselves for the umpteenth time that dream life is unrealistic, impractical, and totally far-fetched. It’s the life reserved for their imagination — not a reality that they have the power to create. Sound familiar?
Excuses are just excuses, though. They’re not truths; they’re only as real as you make them. They’re artificial creations that mask the real fear and doubt lurking underneath your skin.
So to prevent the excuses from holding you back from your dream life for even one more day, I’ve compiled a list of the top excuses I’ve heard, and some ways you can bust through each.
When you’re done with the list, you’ll have nothing left but your dream, and hopefully a lot of refueled inspiration to go for it. You’ve got the power to make anything happen — just put one foot in front of the other and take action.
TOP Seven Excuses Why People Do Not Live the Life of YOUR Dreams.
Excuse #1: I don’t have the money. Consider how much money you actually need and find creative ways to get it. I’m going to guess that you you haven’t even spent the time figuring out how much money you need to actualized this dream. Don’t compromise down your dream before you even explore it.
Excuse #2: I don’t have time. You can make time for the stuff that matters to you. You get to choose whether or not you prioritize your dreams. What are you doing that’s a total time-waster? Do you spend three hours a day on Facebook or mindless moments in front of the TV? What can you accomplish more efficiently? What can you outsource to someone else? Rearrange your day and think outside the box. You’ll find you have more time than you think.
Excuse #3: I’ve already started down one path; I can’t change direction. Every day you make decisions about how you live your life. Give yourself permission to change direction — no matter how much time, energy, or money you’ve already invested in another endeavor, relationship, or job. Life is all about twists and turns — be open to a new direction.
Excuse #4: I’m too scared. It’s natural to be scared of the activities that most excite you. Use fear to move you forward — follow your fear, don’t resist it. Push yourself so you can be proud of yourself.
Excuse #5: People will judge me if I fail. You’re giving everybody too much power. Frankly, people care a lot less about what you’re doing than you think. You’re just a blip on their radar screen. Make the decisions that are right for you. The people who love and care about you will support you; the rest don’t matter anyway.
Excuse #6: I’m not _____ enough. Not young enough, smart enough, or good enough? These are just limiting beliefs. Catch yourself when these doubts pop up, and find something positive and encouraging to say about yourself instead.
Excuse #7: I’m not ready yet. If you’re waiting to be perfectly ready to pursue your dream, you’ll never go for it. We all start one (shaky) step at a time. Don’t wait for perfection to move forward, just do it.
