It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Dreams. Here Are 5 Ways to Do It! (2 min read)

1. Forget New Year’s resolutions.

While they may have their time and place, this isn’t about what you can do better. We aren’t talking about exercising more or being more organized. We are thinking about this differently—from the outside in.

2. What impact do you want to have in your world?

Your “world” may be your family, your neighborhood, your community or the bigger world. You decide. This question isn’t self-focused, but on the outward way you want to affect others or the issues you care about. It’s not the size or scale that matters the most, but your desire to have an impact around you.

3. Dream big! Start small and start now!

This is my mantra. This combination is so powerful because if we dream big, it can feel like too much. Yet almost everything great started with a small decision or action that didn’t seem significant or courageous at the time.

It’s so important to ask yourself, What can I do now? Not after you leave your current job, make more money, or after you get out of college. Start this week. Today. Now.

4. Experiment and explore.

Try a small-scale home improvement business on the side before you leave your job in sales. Spend the day with someone in your dream job and see how it feels. Start writing a blog before you commit to a book. Experimentation can give you the confidence and assurance on where to focus. Remember, this isn’t a test with one right answer. Try, learn and adjust your course.

5. The time will pass anyway.

The time will pass anyway. It’s OK if you aren’t sure what your dream, your wave or your next thing is. What’s important is taking the time to ask yourself the right questions and then thinking:

What’s the change I want to see in my life and my world?

And keep asking. Because if you don’t—no one else will.

  2. I was just talking about this recently to a friend. When you look at someone who has accomplished amazing things, it’s easy to forget that their path was filled with ordinary, everyday responsibilities. Everyday, they woke up and checked off their to do list faithfully. Small steps are what matter, and they happen for all of us each day. They aren’t always big and exciting. Remembering that makes it easier for me to be patient as I make my own way. Great article!
