Blog » Create your dream life
In the last couple of weeks two of my closest friends have both independently of each other made huge life-changing decisions. Instead of coasting along in one direction, they're both heading somewhere completely new. They've made decisions that will matter 10 years from now. The kind of decisions that attract attention and where you can't hide from the outcome.
And it's got me thinking. Our goal in life should be nothing more than finding the courage to follow our hearts and create the life of our dreams.
It looks so simple on the screen. Follow our hearts. Create the life of our dreams. But how many of us really do it? I'm not talking about doing things you'd kinda like to do or merely acting on a preference. I'm talking about big dreams and big decisions that are uniquely you and ensure you end life with a smile on your face and no regrets.
Loving the life you live means putting aside the expectations of other people. It means having the intelligence to consider other people's opinions, but having the courage to act according to your own values. It means saying "no" to following in your father's footsteps. It means putting your passion ahead of your bank balance. It means starting a relationship that might be scary.
The courage to bungee jump counts for nothing if you're working a job you hate or you're in a relationship that doesn't make you happy. True courage is about setting aside the opinions and expectations of other people and living your dream life every single day.
If you're living the life of your dreams, well done. If you're not, what are you waiting for?
