If somebody had told me five years ago that I will be a life coach, writing articles for The Huffington Post, COSMOPOLITAN, Tiny Buddha and other international publications, working on my laptop, under the shades of palm trees or in my favourite cafe spot with WI-FI connection, and traveling around the globe (India, Dubai, Europe…) I would be mind blown! Things I am living and experiencing today were beyond my wildest dreams.

I did have a desire to write inspiring articles, to help other people live their best life, to travel, to have freedom while working… but I also did work very hard to make it happen.
I was writing inspiring articles and my blog for free for about two years when I started earning my full-time income as a freelance writer. I moved to India (somewhere that always fascinated me).
I was earning regular income by writing but I did decide to take a leap of faith and sign up for life coaching training. I worked with a life coach. I believed that I can make my dreams a reality and I had faith that I will be supported and guided.
It was scary at times, it was challenging, it took a lot of hard work and investment of my time and money… but if I look back, it was all worth it!
Over the years I’ve learned that dreams do come true, but in order for them to reveal in life even beyond our wildest dreams, we need to take some important steps in that direction:
1. Have A Vision
You have to own your dreams! Do not be afraid to dream big, as we intuitively always desire things which are aligned with our spirit, interest, passions, skills and talents, so you need to believe that you have what it takes to make it happen!
Envision your dream life, journal about your dream life, your perfect working day, your perfect vacation, your dream weekend… Create a vision board and pin all the things that you want to experience. Believe that all those things you are dreaming of can become true for you because, in order for you to see it, you have to believe it first!
2. Take The First Step
The power of visualization and having the right mindset is huge, but you need to also take an aligned action to create the life of your dreams, otherwise, your dream will remain only that: a dream!
You need to start taking action steps towards making your dreams a reality. You do not need to know all the answers: how it is going to happen or when, but you do need to start taking aligned action towards your dream, just like I was writing inspiring articles and I signed up for my dream job training and asked the guidance from a life coach.
The good news is that you do not need to do all this on your own: you can hire a life coach to help you with making the right decision and what action steps you will take to achieve your dreams. Life coaching can help you to take the best action step and decision with your current skills, limitations, and resources (money, time…).
So, you do not need to know all the answers and have an exact plan or a roadmap towards living your dreams, but it is must for you to take that first step!
3. Take A Leap Of Faith
Now, there will be a crucial moment where things will start aligning in your life in the right direction, after you take that first step towards living your dream: right books will start appearing, you will come across an article like this one, you will meet the right person, find out about certain life coach, training or education for your dream job, webinar, workshop, program, job opportunity… You might get a party invitation, date invitation, business opportunity and at that moment you will need to take a leap of faith.
You will need to make that one important decision. You will need to invest that money on a program, training or working with a life coach. You will need to sign up for that workshop or webinar. You will need to accept that job or quit the job you are currently doing and start a business on your own… You will need to say YES to that invitation. You will need to ACT and take that leap of FAITH.
It may be scary, it may seem uncertain, and you will not have the guarantee it will work out or not, or that your invested money will pay off in the future, or whether you will succeed or not… but this will be the moment that will determine your future.
This one decision will be either a building block of your dream life or a missed opportunity you may be regretting for a lifetime.
People who are living their dreams are not just lucky, but they are brave enough to go after their dreams!
Do not put your life on hold anymore. Your dreams are yours for a reason and you might be only one decision away from living your dream life.
