10 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR DREAMS ALIVE


Every human being who is living on this planet dreams but there are very few who live up to them. The one who have chased their dreams till the end are probably the most successful or the most satisfied people in their own lives. This feeling of success or satisfaction has come to them after achieving what they have been thinking about all the times before they actually got it. It’s their passion of what they dream and their honesty to cultivate a path to achieve has paid off. On the contrary, we have the others who started off with a similar dream to what they want to be or what they want to achieve but then they settled for a mediocre life as they were too scared to pursue their dreams any further.
Most people end there so called golden chase after they have faced failures multiple times in achieving it. They just suffice themselves by giving some vague justifications of not able to achieve what they actually wanted. A man gets so much frustrated or becomes so clueless of a situation when after trying again and again the dream of his life is not coming true. But the situation is justifiable to an extent, since there is no timeline or sure shot period in which all his dreams will come true. So, the million dollar question arises – “How can one still keep their dream alive? “.
It’s probably, the trickiest of the question to be answered but surely there is an answer to it and that’s the only reason why god has given us this unique and supreme power to dream, isn’t it? So, to live up to what we want, to what we want to be, to live up to our dreams, here are the 10 ways which will help us in achieving our Dream.

VISUALIZE: It’s of utmost importance for a person to visualize his dreams. By visualizing it, you get the clarity of your dream. This will help us analyze, what we will be once our dreams come true and how it will make us change to what I we are before achieving them. It will give us the glimpse of our dreams being achieved, which helps an individual to motivate and plan for them. It inspires us to take actions to fulfill our dreams.

MAKING A WISH LIST: It’s really important to pen down what we want, until we write down our dreams, how can we expect them to be fulfilled in reality. By maintaining a wish list of our dreams, we can keep a track of what we have achieved and what not. It helps us plan for our future in a better way. Be sure that you celebrate and acknowledge your success. If you take for granted any of your moment of success either big or small; chances are it will take you longer to continue reaching your milestones.

PLANNING: Each one of us should plan for how to achieve our dreams. It’s really necessary to plan in a proper manner, until and unless we don’t have a proper planning, it will lead us to diversion from the path of our dreams. Like for every task in our life- we plan, it’s in a same way we should have a master plan for our dreams.

PASSION: You need to be completely passionate about your dreams. Your dream should be such that – You think about it at least once in a day, it should be such that before going to sleep when you are in your bed you are thinking about it, it should be such that when you are talking to someone you at least divert once to bring it in the conversation. You should be so passionate about it that you just want to do all the things perfectly, to achieve it soon.

NEVER GIVE-UP: Seeking a dream is not a cake walk at all, it requires a true character. Even after trying for several times and for many years, if you are not able to achieve it. You are bound to go in a failure mode and giving up on the further attempts to get it filled is but obvious. So, at that moment of time when the chips are down and you don’t know what needs to be done then it’s always better to re-analyze your plan of action and act patiently, towards your dreams. It’s basically like bouncing back from the failure again and again with better preparation than earlier. You work it out without giving up and in spite of several attempt, you will surely get to what you dreamt.

TAKE ACTIONS: Only just by dreaming of better self and better life will never leads to actually achieving it. It requires for an individual to take actions to fulfill the dreams. It will never happen that you just dream a thing today and it gets to you by itself, it requires a strict action from thyself. Remember this fact that – “Dreaming Big Is Not Bad, But NOT WORKING FOR IT, IS THE BIGGEST DISGRACE!!”. So, take appropriate actions towards your dreams.

BE FLEXIBLE: It is a must that you need to be flexible with your approach of attaining your dreams. Sometimes, you are following certain fixed actions to achieve your goals but that is not working. So, it becomes the need of an hour for you to act differently. Make sure you are not following the old orthodox ways but applying your new innovative ideas. Sometimes, you reach to a situation you know that your dream cannot be filled in a way which you might have thought initially so it becomes essential to change your dream a bit to more practical form for achieving it. But that does not mean at all that you are changing them all the times at your will.

MAKING A DREAM BOOK: You can begin today to utilize the law of attraction to help you achieve your goals. Do you actually know what you desire? If you really know what you desire just make an Audio or a Video of the same, watch it. By doing this you are attracting those things towards you. Make a dream book, put the pictures or write about your dreams. It will attract what you want in your life, as if Universe is taking your order for a meal and you are ordering whatever you want to eat. The law of attraction works you can surely try it.

ALWAYS DREAM BIGGER THAN WHAT YOU ARE IN PRESENT: You will loose all the motivation or your dreams will become worthless, if they are lesser in nature to what you are currently. You have to evaluate your dreams on the scale of practicality and how it will change you once you achieve it. To always lighten the passion for your dreams, it is really needed you have significant well evaluated dreams to inspire you to work towards them.

READ ABOUT OTHERS WHO HAVE ACHIEVED THEIR DREAMS: It’s a motivating thing that we read about the people who have achieved their dreams. Not only we get to know how they reached to their dreams but also it let us compare our approach to them and help us fetching useful ideas for our further road towards our dreams. It sometimes helps to be better prepared for what we may be expecting.

Hi Vivek, jeeee, you´re such a source of inspiration to me. I think it´s great to provide a list of tools to help people keep their dreams alive. And I know that what you wrote works for most people. There´s just one thing...As an artist, I´m more the kind of organised caos person and I´ve found that for me it works slightly different, Writing down and dream book are an absolute no-go. And the same goes for planning, I´m like that woman in a movie I once saw. She says : But I don´t have a plan. And her husband replies : Don´t worry honey, your plans don´t work anyway. So what do I do ? Instead of making plans, I set my goal and then just follow my heart, do whatever I feel like doing. It works great and it´s fun. And I´ve learned to get things done without writing them down, I know that if I follow my heart´s desire, I will always be at the right time in the right place, and if I forget something, my heart will take me to meet a person, who reminds me. Just like you. Your post just reminded me of a couple of posts I want to write on my blog. You´re doing such a great job. Thanks, Joy@

Sally said...

Hey Vivek, Thanks for this post, I particularly liked the planning paragraph.....I needed that reminder today!

Vivek Nanda said...

Joya,oh your views are so refreshing as always.
Yes, I think I need to add one more point-Follow Your Heart but certainly, I cannot remove the point about the planning because most men are driven with that if not women,lol. Otherwise, Sally, who just commented agreed with it. So, there are women who believe in planning also.

Joya said...

Oh sure, planning definetly works for women as well as for men, again, like everything, depending on situation and person. And I think it was very wise of you to add the flexibility, People often miss out on opportunities because of holding on too much to their inicial plan, I made that mistake a lot in the past. I used to be a plan person you know....And I really wouldn´t want you to remove, or even think about removing something of your post. You know I love what you write, Just wanted to add my experience in case one of your readers is more like me and feels happier just to go with the flow. Just wanted people to know it´s ok to do things their own way. As long as it works and they feel happy with it.....Your greatest fan
