11 Questions To Kickstart Your Dream

What’s your dream? Want to give your vision a kickstart? Write down your goals and use these questions to speed up the delivery of your dream.

What’s your highest priority?

What’s most vital for you to experience, explore or embrace in your life? Until you answer this question, your life goals will be off purpose. Unaligned with your inner passion, your intentions will lack the power and energy to drive you toward the people and situations necessary to arrive at your destination.

Get on the path to your true purpose. What activities inspired you as a child? What are your hobbies now? When your goals are aligned with your life’s purpose, synchronicity kicks in to guide you to your destination. When you recognize and own your unique qualities and calling, assistance will flow to you from every earthly and heavenly source.

Is this your dream, or someone else’s?

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?”

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?

You have a social obligation to follow your dream. Only then can you fulfill your destiny and contribute to your family, community, or tribe where you live and influence. You have a divine calling to follow your passion.

Do you really, really want this dream?

Do you bound out of bed every morning to pursue your vision? Or do you hit your snooze button, because you don’t have anything to generate enough energy to get you motivated? Only the Real McCoy will generate enough energy to propel you forward through the day.

Are you settling for less than?

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

Anything short of living your true passions will never make you happy. Do you want to arrive at the Pearly Gates with the regret of not marrying that one captivating person, starting that fun business, or seeing that exotic part of the world you always wanted to visit?

Is your dream actually just a means to some other dream?

Is your goal the ultimate end in itself, or merely a limited means to that end? Isn’t it really the new car itself you want, rather than the money-the means-to buy the new car? More to the core, isn’t it really a renewed sense of self-worth you desire, rather than the new car or house to impress the family and neighbors? And isn’t it really happiness you want, rather than the picture-perfect mate, job, or body?

Focus on the experience you want to create, not the physical form that may or may not-bring you that experience.

What will you feel like when you reach your dream?

Personal passion fuels a purpose. Dive into the thrill and exhilaration of the feeling of living your dream. Every moment you can drink in the joy of achieving your goal.

The Hawaiian Kahuna says, “Where your creative attention flows, so flows your life.” Are your daily actions feeding your dream? As the old TV, public service announcement reminds us, “It’s midnight. Do you know where your children are?” Hey, in your life, it’s high noon! Do you know where you are headed and why?

It’s high time you manifested your aspirations. Dynamic, satisfying creations are nurtured with love and care just like a flower in a garden.

How will you benefit from getting your dream?

Get specific about the benefits you’ll receive from achieving your vision. Write down these pluses so they will sink in as motivators. What exactly would happen if you made a lot of money doing something you love? How would you approach your life differently if you allowed people to love and support you? What would you do with more vitality and health?

What steps can you take today toward your dream?

Don’t defer your dream. Set up supports and systems around you to instantly translate your intentions into action. Jump on every opportunity that is in line with your purpose and vision.

Keep the momentum going. No matter how hectic life gets, pledge to take at least one action a day. Even the smallest actions-jotting down a new idea, reading a single page or making one phone call-can start to add up.

Are there smaller projects that lead to your larger dream that can give you pleasure in the meantime? 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.

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

Most 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.

Everyone has a dream! And everyone is destined to fulfill that purpose. Why wait?

Are you afraid of getting your dream?

Statistically, more heart attacks occur when “good” things happen, than when “bad” things happen! Getting your dream is life-threatening! Of course, realizing your dream is only threatening your old experience of yourself and the life you know, the one that’s boring or paining you to death!

Change is scary. Find a way to overcome the energy of fear. The only way to avoid feeling fear is to avoid living altogether!

Do you really need to accomplish your dream?

Do you really need to achieve your goals to be happy?  Only you answer that for yourself, but I think that answer is no since you are reading this. 

But, in truth, your purpose is all around you. If it is out of reach, that is because it’s out of your consciousness – likely crowded out by busyness, stuff, and mind-numbing activities.

You will find real fulfillment when you take control of your life and design the path forward.  When you are on the right path you can overcome obstacles with more flexibility and fulfill your purpose.  On a higher plane, what if our true task here on Earth is just waiting for you to get started.
