How To: Achieve Your Dreams

This is rather different from what I am used to but something I would like to do and  explore more of. We all have dreams, I think. I also think that some people are better at following their dreams than others. Some might even leave this world without even trying to go after their dreams and goals.
I am currently having a gap year and it has really made me question what I want in my life. What do I want to do? What do I want to achieve with my life. What do I love to do? I am still of course figuring out what I want. I think you will discover new things about yourself and what you want for the rest of your life. But I have figured out some of the things I would like to do and discovered some of my dreams and that's what I am going to try to achieve.

We will have dreams all our lives the question is, are you going to achieve them or let them be just a dream? Here I have some tips on how to achieve your dreams:

Figure out what you want to do
Before you can do anything you need to figure out what you want to do. What are your dreams and goals? What do you love to do? If you have a hard time figuring it out then ask yourself: What do I love to do when no one is looking and what do I love do so much that I don't give a shit about what others think? What makes you happy?

Follow your intuition and your heart
You heart is what tells you what you love to do and if you have to make some decisions then follow your intuition. It will lead you the way. It will lead you to what you want the most. 'If you want to know where your heart is look where your mind goes when it wanders'

Just do it
I think the hardest part for people is that they are so afraid of not succeeding and that keeps them from even trying. It is all in out head and it is actually just doing it. Get up and do it. As some wise person once said 'If you never try you will never know' and that is so freaking true.

See opportunities not limitations
If you have some bumps on the way to achieve your dreams then see them as opportunities to learn and grow instead of seeing them as limitations... if  that makes sense. Obstacles gives you an opportunity to grow and learn.

 Set small goals 
Set small goals that help you achieve your dreams and if you can, try to do something every day that gets you closer to your dream. Have big goals and dreams. The bigger the better and then break it up into smaller goals to help you on your way.

Nothing is impossible
Such a cliché but so true. You can really do anything it just depends on how much you want to work for it. Nothing comes easy and the road is what makes the end goal worth it. (what did I just write??) Well, if you can't do it then who can?

There you go. That was my tips to achieving your dreams. I hope you could use something. Just one tiny bit and let's get to work. Dreams change and we figure out what we want along the way. We may even acieve a dream only to find out it is not how we had imagined it or that it is really not for us anyway. Life is a journey where we kind of never will get in charge so hop on the ride and enjoy it.
