Welcome back and thanks for popping over to read my post. Stay Blessed and have a good day.

one step at a time

Everyone daydreams of being fitter, healthier, slimmer, richer, or happier. Do you fall asleep at night your mind bursting with ideas and wake-up full of smiles, glad to be alive, eager and keen to get stuck into your day? Or are you stuck in a rut; tied to a job you hate or relationship which drags you down and you long to break free from?

In today’s post, I will share with you five simple steps you can take today to encourage you to step your toe in the water and see how easy it is to make your dreams reality.

Five Tips To Help You Bring Your Dreams To Life
1. Look After Your Health

This is the key ingredient in dream building. A healthy body is vital to your well being. Take a rain check for a moment, be honest and take a look at your physical, emotional, spiritual and even financial health. How do you feel about what you see? Are there areas you would like to change and be different?

Action Tip: If there is something you would like to improve, whether it’s a matter of losing a couple of pounds, saving £5 a week or taking the bus and walking to work rather than driving, make a conscious effort to do this and see what a difference it makes to how you feel.

2. Nurture And Nourish Your Core

Take time to rest and look after yourself. From a yogic perspective you foster your inner beauty through the natural care of your body. The yogi sees their physical body as a temple that houses your soul. True beauty is the reflection of your inner self radiating and touching others.

Action Tip: Practice simple self care techniques such as dry skin brushing, steaming your face, or even giving yourself a hand massage to help bring your mind and body into alignment.

3. Be Excited.

Chances are you are so bogged down with the mundane matters of your everyday life, you have forgotten the joy of natural spontaneous laughter and fun.

Have you seen a child run, jump and SPLASH! feet first into a puddle only to be dragged away by his mother and told off for getting his feet wet?

Action Tip: Well, just for today, be like the child splashing in the puddle, get your feet wet, make that phone call, write that letter, order that book, just take one small step and do something that will make your heart sing and eyes sparkle.

4. Record Your Dream
There is power in the written or spoken word. Take your time and find someone you trust and share your story and inner heart song. If there isn’t anyone in your life who you can do that with, email me your thoughts and I will hold your space and pray for you till you can hold your own space.

Action Tip: Write your dreams down, write a poem or if you prefer audio record or draw it. Whatever your favourite medium is, just do it. And remember you can send your creations to me.

5. Release Attachment To The Outcome

Yoga philosophy encourages to say your piece and then to keep your peace. To learn how to be still and release all expectation and desires to how you think your dream world should be. Yes, it is good to be clear how you want life to be, yet the essence of life is to be open to all possibilities. You never know what is around the corner and the more you focus on a particular thought and, if it’s in alignment with your soul purpose, the more you attract opportunities, to make your dream come true-one step at a time.

Action Tip: Learn to meditate or practice a mind-body activity, such as yoga, as a way to deepen your spiritual connection and understanding.

As you can see, there are many ways to reach your goals; everything starts from you taking the time and energy to look after your most precious asset, your health, and as you go along, rather than bemoan the fact you aren’t where you want to be, acknowledge where you are, record where you wish to be, release attachment to the outcome and always have fun as you take care of yourself.

  1. Since I started to look for my healt I feel much better and can work much more, in addition to this I am much more optimistic now and all this is a result of taking some little easy decisions.

  2. Very inspiring, especially about recording the dreams. Words can do become reality, one just must have reasonable dreams and the tools and skills to acieve them. This is not about dreaming of winning the lottery.

  3. Great Post!

  4. The first point is really important: we should look after both our physical and mental health. This is the starting point for everything else.

  5. This is so good Ntathu! I’d also like to add something about being in the moment and aware of the beauty around us – even on a grey day! The philosopher Abraham Joshua Heschel called it ‘radical amazement’.

  6. I especially like the advice to record your dream, Ntathu – that’s what people are doing when they make vision boards and goal lists. Somehow they make you take action by keeping the dream alive.

  9. Definitely important steps in the right direction, Ntathu.

    I’d also add “get enough sleep” to the list, but then again – sleep is an oxymoron to owning your business, right? LOL

  10. I remember you enjoy writing poetry..given the theme of your recent post on children’s creativity maybe you could share you grown up poetry creativity skills! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  11. Thanks for the gentle reminder to keep recording my dreams. I have a poem in the making that has been floating around in my head recently. Your article has reminded that I can build it bit by bit just like a jig saw. Thanks Ntathu!!
