Personal Development and Recognize Your True Dream – Your North Star
“Life is a bunch of accidents that happen to you and somehow you survive them by taking advantage of them and then something magical happens and violá – you have the beginning of your dream. But the accidents are the result of an intention – an intention created from a dream you are passionate about. So passionate, so strong is your passion that the energy of it fuels your intention. And when it becomes so strong that not even the Universe can deny it, that’s when the “accidents” take place.
The double-edged sword, the element that makes it all happen – that binds it all together – you have to be okay if it doesn’t happen! It’s the excitment of the possibility of the adventure of the nothingness. You must be willing to trade what you have, that may look great but feels wrong for this nothing that could be something. It’s the excitement of having the courage to leave behind what you have for the possibility of what could be. You must be able to let go of what you have. You must not need it or let it define who you are. You must be okay without it and you must be okay if the nothing turns into that – just nothing.
You become okay with the decision simply because you made the decision! It’s the act of leaving what isn’t supporting you for the possibility of something better that makes you like yourself more for simply making this decision.
What’s my dream? How do you recognize your true dream from all the other wants and desires in your life? If you enjoy the process, it’s your dream! If you are enduring the process, desperate for the result, it’s somebody else’s dream!”
In personal development we learn that “we all see and experience the world not as it is, but as we are”.
