Ask yourself. What are your dreams? And no, I don’t mean what you dream of at night. I mean what do you dream of in your life. What would you like to achieve? What would you like to do? What experiences do you want to have? How would you like to live?
We all have dreams. But for most of us, everything stays there, in dreams. We are too busy with our daily routine that we don’t think we can do more and enjoy more. Not believing that we can make what we want come true, or not knowing how to do it, are the main reasons why most people settle as they are.
You are the artist of your own life
We live on autopilot. We have been taught that we have to live a standard life. We go to school, to college, they tell us that we have to go to university, find a job, get married, have children, a house, and so on. And it’s not that that’s wrong at all. The problem is believing that there is someone superior to us who knows better than ourselves how we have to live our own life, and therefore we stop living as we would like to live to live as we are told we should live.
The trick is knowing that you can take control of your own life. The moment you discover that you can design your own path, an immense world of possibilities opens up before you.
Here is a short summary with the most important principles to design a creative life and achieve all your dreams.
