Take Action – Make your Dreams Come True
In order to make our dreams come true, we must take action rather than simply wishing for what we want.
There is a popular misconception that we might be able to just wish our dreams into being. Maybe on some other level of consciousness, this is the case, but here on earth what we need to take action in our lives. Vision is an important companion to our efforts, but it can not accomplish anything by itself. When we focus on what we want and ask for what we want, we are initiating a conversation with ourselves.
Many of us are afraid to step out into the world and make things happen, and we just hang back, dreaming and waiting and watching. There are times in life when this is the right thing to do, but this phase of inaction must eventually give way to its opposite if we are to build our dreams into reality.
This can be really scary, and we may fail and struggle, but that’s okay because that’s what we’re supposed to do. Waiting for everything to be perfect before we act, or waiting for what we want to be handed to us, leaves us waiting forever. No one expects us to be perfect, just the best thing we can do for ourselves is to get out there and take action on our dreams.
One of the hardest parts about having a vision is that when we test it in the laboratory of life, it often comes out looking completely different than what we had in mind or, worse, it does not come out at all. If you read the life stories of people who have brought their dreams into reality, you will hear many stories about this experience. But you will also hear about hard work, taking action, perseverance, and, finally, the successful birthing of a dream.
