How to Start Living the Life of Your Dreams

You dream of big things, I know.

You want to stop doing whatever you are doing with your life right now, and start doing the thing that you always wanted to do.

You seem like a person who has the potential to actually do the things others only dream of. Yet, there you are, stuck in this vicious cycle.

How do you make your dream a reality? How do you take the difficult steps necessary to break free, and start living life on your own terms?

A life that gives you time to do things you truly love to do.

Do you want to know the secret behind this?

*cue orchestra music please* The secret to living the life of your dreams is…

The secret to living the life of your dreams is that there is no secret.

People keep looking for the magic formula, and never find any. Because there isn’t any.

It seems that a lot of successful people, from all walks of life do not seem to believe in any secret. They did what others did not, they kept trying.

If there was a secret…

Quite some time ago, I was setting up a telecom tower for one of the biggest telecom operators in Pakistan. Back in the day, the telecom sector paid good money. Anyways, I had a lot of people from the labor class come and go; foremen, brick layers etc.

I still remember asking one of the better brick layers, what he wants to do with his life (I end up having these kinds of conversations with a lot of people it seems).

“Well sir, nothing much, I intend to keep doing what I am doing,” he said, “and besides, who really knows of the future!?”

At this the foreman, who was standing nearby, said, “I was once a brick layer, but I told myself that one day I will be leading my own team,” — and there he was, leading his own team.

IF there was a secret, a formula for living your dreams, I think it would be that you actually have a dream!

Too many people want to “get fit”, or want to earn “a million bucks”. These are not dreams, these are somethings to say when asked.

A dream should be more refined, it is your dream after all. Your dream deserves it.

Your dreams need to be converted into a plan. 

Any dreamer out there, making plans?

  1. I have just started really exploring the concept of dreamlining after a couple of awesome discoveries that I chat about in my blog. It is truly amazing what you can do when you not only put your mind to it, but also when you put a plan in place to make your dreams happen. Some things may seem impossible, but I believe that anyone can make great things happen in life.

    Happy Dreamlining everyone.

    • As long as you are actually doing something about it, then that’s a plan, Muzaffar! :)
      You have seen the kind of feedback the dairy farming section of this blog gets… so there are a lot of people who can help each other out.

      I wish you all the best, man.

  2. I absolutely agree with Momekh when he states that there is no such BIG secret to the accomplishment of your dreams. However, as mentioned above as well, I personally feel that what distinguishes a winner from a loser is his or her level of resilience and the degree of persistence. The truth of the matter is that everybody dreams; some dream big and some small, some succeed in one go and some fall while trying. At the end of the day, the winner is that person who falls, gets up, falls again, gets up again, tries….keeps on trying and ultimately success bows in front of him.

    Lastly, we all should understand that success doesn’t come to you that easily.

    You need to earn it!
