Have you ever slaved away at work or at school, wishing someday you could really enjoy life, the way others seem to do? Do you envy those who jet away to exotic vacations while you sit at home, staring into your corn flakes and dreaming how your life would be perfect if only you, too, could dance the hula in Hawaii?
Some people really do put their lives on hold, waiting to live the life of their dreams. True happiness eludes them. And so, some people discover, too late, that life has passed them by. You can live the life of your dreams – not next year or in five years – but Today!
The amazing part is, living your dreams today does not require wealth, connections, or a genius IQ. It’s fun, it’s free and it’s right here, right now!
“The best way to live the life of your dreams is to start living the life of your dreams Today, in every little way that you possibly can.”
– Mike Dooley, Inspirational Quotes from Today Is That Day
Don’t Ruminate About The Past Or Dream Of The Perfect Future
Some people become mired in the past, thinking about regrets or missed opportunities. They believe their dreams would have come true if only they had finished college or if only they had come from a wealthy family. Others wait to really live their lives until they have achieved their goals. They dream of how perfect life will be sometime in the future. They believe they will be happy as soon as they buy that house, or as soon as they find Mr. Right. Living in the past or idealizing the future only prevents you from living life in the present. When you focus on the past or the future, you fail to enjoy the Now. Forget the past and don’t worry about the future. As Master Oogway once told Po, the panda, in Kung Fu Panda:
“Quit, don’t quit. Noodles, don’t noodles. You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the ‘present.’ “
Live Life In The Present
Enjoy life by living in the present. Don’t wait to start enjoying your life someday – Today is that Day! Start living a part of your dreams now. You can do this by doing little things everyday that make you feel as if you are already living your dream. Enjoy a cup of coffee in that luxury hotel in which you’ve dreamed of staying. Go to the dealership and sit in the Mercedes you want to buy. Buy the outfit that makes you feel like a top executive. Save money every day so that you can literally visualize your Financial Freedom. When you start doing little things like this every day, you will feel as if you are presently living your dream. You will begin to feel the abundance of living in the present. You will feel the great feeling of gratitude for what you have now. Living in the present will help you live the life of your dreams now.
Live Your Dreams Now
You don’t have to live your life thinking you would be happy “if only” your dreams would come true. When you visualize yourself living your dreams everyday and take every small step possible toward actualizing your dreams every single day, you will be living your dreams now. You will enjoy the experience of staying in the luxury hotel. You will feel as great as if you really owned that Mercedes. You will feel as confident as a top executive. You will watch your money grow and enjoy the feeling of Financial Freedom. Living your dreams – now and everyday – is the best and quickest way to live the life of your dreams. Give yourself the gift of the present by starting to live your dreams today.
