(New Post) 10 Habits of People Who Follow their Dreams

I’ve always been dreamer.

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a very strong point of view and always felt that life is all about pursuing your dreams and doing what you love! So naturally when I saw this post on BroccoliCity.com I had to repost it here because reading it confirmed all of my beliefs and inspired me to keep going at the same time, and I think it will do the same for you guys! Enjoy, and keep going after your dreams, you have them for a reason! Happy hump day! 

1. They see challenges as opportunities

Most people interpret fears as obstacles and tend to run away from them. People who live their purpose successfully have developed the capacity to see fear as a sign of what they really need to go for and put all their courage and energy into it.

2. They see life as a game

Having this vision of life opens up space for playfulness and creativity instead of limitation. This also cultivates qualities of resilience, problem solving and confidence that helps them take risks to get to the next big place.

3. Living the life they want is the only option

They’re so committed to making their dreams a reality that they banish any possibility of a backup plan whatsoever from their mind. They don’t think things like, “If it doesn’t work, I’ll just go get a job.”

4. They always speak their truth

They’re able to speak it because they make a conscious effort to connect to their truest desires, their inner voice, and their spirituality without fear of judgment. This connection is typically fostered through meditation, journaling, being mentored and being surrounded by like minded-people.

5. They aren’t just dreamers: they act on their desires

Instead of getting stuck in their dreams, they snap right into action, no matter what it takes. Whether it’s quitting a job, getting out of a relationship that holds them back, investing in themselves or moving to a new location, they have the courage to do it. They do this by listening to, and then acting on, their intuition.

6. They expect and know that they deserve the best

They expect that what they want is going to happen as if it were an inner-knowing. They expect and feel they deserve to earn well, do what they love, serve others using their gifts. The secret is that they still expect the best even when they don’t have all the answers as to how it’s going to happen.

7. They have no fear or guilt when asking for what they want

Because they’re so connected to their passions, they aren’t afraid to ask for what they want. In fact, they understand that their success depends on others, so asking for what they want is part of the deal. They set their boundaries and express their needs without fear, guilt or shame. Best of all, this is a trait that earns them respect from others.

8. They create their own rules

They create their own rules instead of fitting into society’s norms. They make decisions from a place of what they want to have instead of what they think they can have. This gives them the freedom to design their destiny.

9. They’ve learned to be comfortable being uncomfortable

They don’t get stuck in having all the answers, making things perfect or trying to gain comfort by controlling everything. Instead, they’re aware that they’re not going to see the next step until they make the decision to move forward despite the discomfort.

10. They have teachers, mentors and role models

Having teachers increases their awareness. They clearly understand that each time they’re getting ready to pursue their dreams all their limitations are going to come up to the surface so that they can let go of them. Having role models and mentors helps them quickly identify where they’re stuck so that they can immediately change their results.

And just incase you need a little more convincing, here’s a video I did a few weeks ago on #SelfLoveSaturday“Let Your Dreams Be Your Motivation”

  3. Everything on this list is so true! Sharing this!

  4. Hi Andrea – I just stumbled onto your youtube channel and I watched about an hour’s worth or your videos . I am also a fellow Leo, but at times feel like a cowardly lion, lol! I have big dreams, but tend to get fearful and back out at the last minute. I am spending the next six months pursuing my passions and dreams without a backup plan, and my spouse and friends don’t understand and are very critical. How do I go forward when my “inner circle” is not present or supportive of my ideas ?

  5. Hey Lina! #Leopower 🙂
    Not everyone is going to understand your vision, goals and dreams and it’s not up to you to make them understand or need them to because it’s only going to slow you down. You’ve told them, and that’s great because they’ll probably hold you accountable, but they don’t get it? That’s too bad but don’t let it stop you. I think it’s great that you have a 6 month -1 year goal plan in place, but now be prepared to make this challenge a solo mission. Ignore anyone who doesn’t support you and keep your eyes on the prize. Once your inner circle sees you accomplishing your goals and actually going after your dreams 100% they’ll all change their minds and start supporting you! 🙂 Best of luck girl!

  6. Thank you for not holding back and sharing the knowledge. I appreciate the reply you gave the young woman above. It spoke to me as well. Now I have to throw in my action words. XO

  7. Awesome! Thank you so much for replying. My Bestie just told me something similar and I just did some risk taking today#deepbreaths! I hope I can blog and share my journey as it unfolds! I come from a big family, so going solo is a dream and a fear for me at the same time. The thing that supports me most is knowing that I can tell my toddler when he grows up that mama,took risks to follow her dreams and it’s ok for him to do the same.#noregrets love the blog and channel! Hugs and kisses, Lina
