You are here because you are curious, because you are born to be a dreamer, and because you are seeking the art of creating your dream life. But, we all know that the process of making our dreams come true process is no different to the one of planting the seeds for the fruit and vegetables we want to have in our garden.
If we want the seeds we plant to grow so that one day we can harvest the fruit and vegetables that nurture our body-mind, then we all know that once the seeds are planted, we ought to spend the time that is required to consistently nurture those seeds.
The art of creating your dream is no different to this process. Give it a go, and see how your destiny changes.
Eleanor Roosevelt, the longest-serving First Lady of the United States once said:
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Deep inside your mind, heart and soul you know you have a dream you believe in, an inspired purpose, vision and a calling that you would love to bring into reality and into the world.
But, as the societal indoctrination takes hold, many of us stop believing in our abilities; we doubt ourselves, and become afraid to dream big. And I mean really big.
According to the Scranton University research, did you know that a staggering 92% of people that set New Year’s goals never actually achieve them and 98% of people die without fulfilling their dreams.
That is billions of people who are killing trillions of dreams.
I’ve done it many times, and if you’re like me — a driven, type-A entrepreneur — failing to meet goals can set you back and leave you discouraged and frustrated.
My aim for this blog is to share three principles I have used to not only make my own dreams come true but also the dreams of the many of my clients from all around the world.
One of these clients that I helped make their dream come true is Joel Van der Molen, the MD of Vandercom, with whom we recently launched into the world “Living My Illusion”, a real life, thought provoking, and mind blowing coaching documentary series. Once a childhood dream it now became Joel’s reality.
It is only you who can take the same decision as Joel did two years ago that can put you on a path to realize your dreams.
Here is a fraction of the journey that led me to discover the art of creating my dream life. Let me share with you just one of my dreams that it took over forty years to realize, but I did it, and I know you can too.
I was born in a ghetto area of Gostivar, a small town in western Macedonia, and as a boy, I dreamed about three things: becoming a heart surgeon, an engineer who travels the world and works for the betterment of humanity. I dreamt that one day I will speak at the United Nations about the importance of preserving the sanctity of a human life.
My parents who were restaurant owners instilled in me the importance of education and listening to my heart played a significant role in achieving my dreams. By the age of ten, I already knew how to cook, work the land, and sell homemade farm produce to the local gypsy community.
Even then, I knew that someday my dreams would lead me to travel the world and work for the betterment of humanity. I felt it so deep in my soul. At the age of twelve, following an illness that kept me bed ridden in a hospital for over two years, I knew I will write a life manual, like people make manuals for fixing TV and Radio sets.
Then, in my late teens, the horror of civil war fell upon us – to save my life, my mother put me on a one-way flight to London; however, with very little money in my pocket, I had to live homelessly on the streets.
On this journey, I faced some of the worst adversity that life can throw at you. I experienced injustice, bullying, war horrors, homelessness and many disappointments, fears, rejections, and the feeling of abandonment.
But misfortune is often the catalyst that leads to powerful change, that’s what happened to me. I went from feeling alone, desperate, and hopeless to graduating with honors, successfully leading multi-billion pound IT programs, writing two best-selling books, travel globally and take people on a journey to boldly go where alone they are afraid to go.
Overcoming many of my life’s adversities also gave me the knowledge, tools, and the wisdom that kept pushing me against seemingly impenetrable boundaries and I believe that’s possible for you, too – for every one of us.
It is what I dedicate my life to, assisting others to breakthrough perceived limits and realizes their dreams, whatever they may be.
To help you on your journey, here are the three transformational principles you can use to master the art of making your dreams come true:
- Exercise the power of choice; deep down you know you can choose to break through what’s blocking your path.
2. Thrive to daily educate your mind. It is why you landed on this blog. It is what can help you efficiently learn how to use your time.
3. You are the most important person in your life. Learn to love the unlovable in you, make a list of all the things you dislike about you and do something about it. It is what will synchronize your body, mind and heart.
Once these three core principles become habitual for you, you start to master the art of creating your dreams.
It took me forty years of consistently pushing through every adversity but also learning, training, and educating my mind. I went from being homeless to writing two bestselling and award-winning books. It is what gave birth to A Path to Wisdom and a year down the line to #Loneliness and what contributed towards being invited to speak at the United Nations in New York.
