Living your ‘best life’ is different for everyone. What does it mean to you? Is it having a happy, healthy family? A fulfilling career with purpose? A huge bank account that leads to travel? Many people just want undying love. And then, there are the people, that some would call the dreamers. They want it ALL!
Is it possible to have it all? If you believe, it is, in fact, possible, then what is holding you back from achieving your hearts desires? You may be interested in some of the following great reads I’ve come across in my own quest. Books like,”The Power of Intention”, “Wishes Fulfilled”, and “Manifest Your Destiny”, just to name a few by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. Tony Robbins has written “The Power to Shape Your Destiny” and “Awaken the Giant Within”, among many others that are meant to inspire and motivate. They speak of dreaming, setting goals and manifesting all of your wishes to come true. In addition, there are countless seminars about how to make millions in a career you love. And even more books on how to find and keep passionate, unwavering love. Can it really be? Can we actually have it all?
Some would say NO. That believing in ultimate success in every aspect of our lives is simply not attainable. Furthermore, to believe such rubbish only sets us up for failure and leads to constant and repetitive disappointment. Such people suggest and claim to be ‘happy’ settling for one or two from their wish list and warn against buying into the ‘having it all’ mentality. They believe it may be true for the rich and famous, but agree that most of them have minimally one area of their life in shambles, at least according to the tabloids. But, as far as the ‘regular folk’, like us, it’s the ‘heaven on earth’ thinking that leads to crime, abuse, failed relationships, addiction and depression. This group of people accepts the fact that realizing all of your dreams is just not possible.
Ahhh, but what IF?…..
There are people that do believe, not only can you have it all, but that everyone can. It’s more than just thinking positive. They behave as though their prayers have already been answered. These people take their destiny into their own hands to realize their dreams and hearts desires. They know they have the power to make it happen. Not only do they believe in abundance, they believe that there is more than enough to go around. There is such an abundance in the world that anyone and everyone can have everything they’ve ever wanted. Living an abundant life is believing in countless opportunities and following a specific way of life. They simply don’t allow themselves to doubt, but to always search for and find an opportunity, grab it by the horns and run with it. These people focus on the abundance in their lives, not where they’re temporarily lacking. If they are lacking in a specific area, they focus on the ability and recognize the opportunities to achieve their goals.
Which of the two categories do you fall into? Haven’t we all dreamed the dreams? Don’t we all wish for financial success, without having to sacrifice our loved ones in the process? Have you ever thought you’d like to travel without breaking your bank account? Do you dream of that true, passionate, unwavering love? Maybe the possibility has crossed your mind. Possibly doubt or fear have held you back. It could be that a rough childhood or horrific circumstance in life forces you into complacency. Perhaps, a great loss left you troubled or weary. Or, maybe you still secretly wish for ‘it all’ and yet don’t allow yourself to truly believe.
Either way, wherever you stand, doesn’t have to be where you remain. It’s your choice. It’s your life. Your dreams can stay just that…wonderful dreams. Maybe you’re happy getting by, enjoying the unexpected pleasures life throws your way. But, maybe not…..
