How to make your dreams a re­al­ity by Ed­i­tor Steve Jones.

Dreams are free! I hear this all to common say­ing all the time but it’s not with­out con­di­tions. Yes, we all love to dream of what we want in life. A fit­ter leaner body, be­com­ing a mil­lion­aire, buy­ing a fancy car or at a per­sonal level find­ing the per­fect part­ner in life. The big ques­tion is, how do we turn those dreams into re­al­ity?

Tak­ing a sin­gle thought and trans­form­ing it into some­thing real and tan­gi­ble is in­deed a gift that we all have inside us. The se­cret to achiev­ing this “Dream to Re­al­ity” can be de­fined with a sin­gle world “Ac­tion”. You could say that ac­tion is in­deed the miss­ing link be­tween mak­ing any dream into re­al­ity. Sounds sim­ple right? Well, it is. How­ever, it ap­pears to be the Achilles heel for many that dream of grand things but fail to make them a re­al­ity.

Have you heard the say­ing “Ac­tions speak louder than words?” I am pretty sure you have. Whether we think those words (Dream them) or speak them makes lit­tle dif­fer­ence. It’s ac­tion that con­verts th­ese men­tal or ver­bal words into re­al­ity. So, enough gib­ber jab­ber. How do we con­vert our dreams into real-life achieve­ments? Plain and sim­ple.... AC­TION!

Put pen to pa­per

Writ­ing your dreams or goals down on pa­per is the first step to ac­tu­ally bring­ing them into the real-world. You are es­sen­tially tak­ing a thought from your mind and bring­ing it to life. There it is, in writ­ing right there in front of you!

Start small and work up!

The rea­son why most folk fail to re­al­ize their dreams is be­cause they think too big too soon. We need to start with small ac­tions be­cause all the small things we do on a day to day ba­sis add up to big things over a pe­riod of time.

When writ­ing down your dreams and goals you need to break it down into a step by step plan to en­able you to get from A to B in the short­est pos­si­ble time. You need a plan. For ex­am­ple if one of your dreams is to lose 10ki­los don’t just write “lose 10 ki­los”. Be pre­cise, in­clude the steps that you are go­ing to have to take to achieve that goal in good time. E.g Clean up your diet, in­crease your work­out in­ten­sity, add some car­dio work.

Write all the steps you feel are re­quired un­der your main Dream/Goal. This will be your blue print to suc­cess and will hold you ac­count­able by pro­vid­ing clear “Ac­tions” that need to be de­ployed to make it all a re­al­ity.

Act on the small things

Ev­ery­thing you do, your day to day ac­tions have ei­ther a pos­i­tive or neg­a­tive rip­ple that in­flu­ences your fu­ture suc­cess. The small things do count! Pay at­ten­tion to de­tail, get use to ac­tu­ally “Act­ing” on day to day things in­stead of just let­ting them slip. The more you “Act” on the small things the eas­ier it will be­come to make the big things a re­al­ity.

Pos­i­tive En­ergy

The health and fit­ness in­dus­try is full of cliché quotes about stay­ing pos­i­tive. One of my fa­vorite is “you are what you think”. Just like the old “You are what you eat”. Look at your thoughts as food/nu­tri­tion for your brain. You con­tin­u­ally put bad thoughts in what do you ex­pect to get out? You guessed it....and it’s all bad!

Clear your mind of all the things that kill pos­i­tive en­ergy. Anger, jeal­ously, envy, and bit­ter­ness kill pos­i­tive en­ergy dead. Why? Be­cause your en­ergy is be­ing­wasted, di­rected out­wards in­stead of in­wards. I see this all too of­ten in the fit­ness in­dus­try. Fo­cus on be­com­ing the ab­so­lute best that “YOU” can be. If you see some­one that has some­thing that your as­pire to, com­pli­ment them on their achieve­ments and pick their brains for knowl­edge.

We all seek suc­cess in life, whether it’s fi­nan­cial, phys­i­cal or emo­tional. We are all hu­man, in a way we are con­nected by the same driv­ing force to live life to it’s fullest, to dream big and make those dreams a re­al­ity.

To make this all hap­pen it takes team work. No one per­son has ever made it on their own. Those that think they can be a one man or one woman show will al­ways fall short of re­al­iz­ing their dreams and goals. We need each other to suc­ceed!

In­spi­ra­tion usu­ally comes from oth­ers, es­pe­cially in the fit­ness world. You see some­one with an amaz­ing body or some­one that has achieved great things in life and they “Drive” you or “In­spire” you to do what? Take Ac­tion!

Suc­cess is both in­spi­ra­tional and con­ta­gious. All you have to do is start act­ing on your dreams so you too can con­nect the dots be­tween your men­tal pic­tures to make it all a re­al­ity!
