Roadblocks to Pursuing Dreams – How to Get Unstuck

Sometimes we have a really super, lovely dream that we’re holding close to our hearts. But try as hard as we might, it is just not happening. What’s off? What’s going wrong? Were we not clear enough? Is it the wrong dream?

Maybe it’s time not to give up, but just to give that goal another look and tweak it a bit.

So maybe the first thing to do is get the dream – or whatever is the newest version of it – out of our heads and on paper – whether actual or digital.

Next here are a few things to thing about to help you get back on track to living your dream – making it your reality…

1. Is this goal really all that important to you, or is there something else lurking in the background. What’s your highest priority in this lifetime?

What’s most important for you to experience, explore or embrace this time around? Until you answer this question, your life goals will be off purpose. Unaligned with your inner passion, your intentions will lack the power to attract the people and situations necessary to become a reality.

Sometimes we want to do one thing, but something else is pulling at us either consciously or unconsciously.

Think about what really makes you happy and your heart sing. What activities did you enjoy as a child? What are your hobbies now? When your goals are aligned with your soul, synchronicity kicks in to guide you to your target. because your mind isn’t split and you’re in 100%

2. Another thing that we may not even be aware of … Is this your dream, or someone else’s?

Sometimes everybody else thinks that they know what’s best for us. What we should be doing with our lives. And we can get swayed by well meaning family and friends… Or sometimes not so well meaning.

Are your goals your own choice, or what others think you should strive for? Do you want to look back in your old age and wish you had followed your passion? Will you regret having “played it safe?”

Maybe it’s time to do what you really want to do. It can help if you find and associate yourself with people who are doing what you want to do, so that you can be inspired and know that it IS possible to live the life of your dreams. Plus like attracts like…it’as good to be with people who are in a similar vibe as you are or aspire to be. You can encourage lift each other’s spirits.

Is it selfish to go after your own dream? What joy can you give to others if you haven’t given it to yourself first?
It’s your life to serve and help others in the way that’s right for you and gives you joy and a good sense of self esteem and well being.

3. Are you settling for less than?

Are you resigned to accepting less than your full share of love, health and success this lifetime? Have you compromised and sacrificed your dream?

Anything short of living your true passions might just make you always wish for that little bit more. It’s one thing to switch your focus on a dream because something else has taken priority, but it is another to just give up and settle for what you’ve got. It’s wonderful to be great for our lives always at any given time of course, but you can aim higher – for a lifestyle more compatabile with your ideal dream if you still want to.

4. What will you feel like when you reach your dream?

Personal passion fuels a vision. Dive into the thrill and exhilaration of the feeling of living your dream. Visualise it.

See yourself living your dream life in every detail. Before you go to sleep is a good time to let all that goodness sink into your subconsciousness over night. And again at some point in time whilst you’re awake.

Write about a pretend day in your ideal life. Have fun with it! Where your attention goes, energy flows.

5. What steps can you take today toward your dream?

Don’t put it off any more. Set up supports and systems around you to move your good intentions into action. Welcome every opportunity that is in line with your purpose and vision. Find online or offline groups that are in harmony with your goals. Read about it, watch videos, get all the information and training that you can, so you can be confident that you are good enough and up to the task.

Are there smaller projects that lead to your larger dream? If the dream is to run a marathon, train for a local fun-run first. And find a way to measure your progress. Track those little wins- by writing in a journal or telling a friend.

6. Are you telling yourself: “I can’t have my dream?”

Some people don’t believe they can live their dream. Either their belief system has them believing they can’t make a living doing what they love, or they feel they don’t deserve their dream.

To avoid the pain of feeling they can’t have their dream, people often keep their dream so buried they can’t remember they ever had a dream. Or we might pretend that it really doesn’t matter. But, if you’re still thinking about it, even once in a great while…it DOES matter.

Unless it’s something that physically depends on having for instance, a younger body, age doesn’t need to stop us either. No does education or lack of training.

So if we’ve changed our priorities or something better has come into our lives instead of the old dream, let’s enjoy the new. But if there’s still that little nagging at the back of our minds, and self confidence is the main thing holding us back. Let’s go for it. Little by little, inch by inch, bigger steps forward let’s give is a try. We are good enough!

So have you had a long time dream that you managed at last to make it come true. How did you do it? Feel free to comment and share.
