Change Your Life – Follow Your Dreams: 5 Simple Habits

How do you follow your dreams when you wake up and you feel cold inside? The future looks bleak. It’s almost as if the world is ending right before your eyes.

How do you follow your dreams when you suddenly realize that your heart is no longer aligned to everything you’ve been working for, training for and studying for? What happens when you feel the light at the end of the tunnel is a train coming?

These questions might sound very negative, but the truth is that a lot of people don’t have a clear desire towards their dreams. The big secret is to know what your true desire is. If you don’t know what your desire is, then you’ll go down many roads.

But when you know what your desire is, every single day you just work hard, you build it and it becomes fruitful. You’ll then be able to reap the benefits of the seeds you have sown.


You will encounter many roadblocks and distractions along the way. There is the path of righteousness which is where only a few people live and is not extremely popular. And then there is the other path which is highly popular but you may have to sell your soul. Which one are you going to choose?

If you want to follow your dreams you have to stay focused. See what you do as a walk in the park. Effortless living. Simplicity is the highest form of sophistication.


You have to ask yourself: What kind of environment are you placing yourself in? Is it simple? Is it helping you to elevate or is it stressful and taking away your energy?

You have to find your own voice in the choir. Your parents know what is best for you. Your friends know what is best for you. They all think they know what is best for you, but in reality only you know.

All this becomes clearer once you reconnect back to your true authenticity.

How you feel affects how you think. You become what you think and that affects how you act, which in turn affects what you attract.

Belief System

Who makes up the rules? We create our own prison by how we interpret what goes on around us, which is based on our belief system.

In following your dreams, you have to reevaluate your belief system, you have to change how you see yourself.


Confidence is like any muscle, you have to exercise it. Following your dreams means doing what you love. When you do what you love, there is no separation between work and leisure. In essence, your work becomes your own leisure.

Following your dream is not about you just becoming your greatest version, but it’s also about sharing with the world what you discover along the way.

When you offer value to those around you, that same value comes right back to you. It’s called “The Law Of Exchange”.

The pursuit or achievement of your dreams doesn’t happen overnight. You have to invest. Passion is the unit of currency you use to pay for the price of your dreams.


Early on, you might find yourself without friends. You might only have acquaintances.

That’s what happens when you really follow your true desires. You see who your real friends are and who your acquaintances are. Sometimes it is better to be alone than with a group of people who don’t care about you.

You’ll start to connect with amazing people once you will see yourself as worthy of being in their presence.

During this journey you might find yourself tired and you want to give up. My message to you is, “Hang in there!”. Everything happens in cycles. Life is not easy. But as you raise in your level of awareness, following your dreams becomes easier.

Embrace change, be open to change and prepare for change.
