The Manifestation of Dreams Through Baby Steps: Take that Next Step
When a large dream looms in our consciousness, it is natural to be a bit paralyzed by fear or indecision at key moments. It can seem far away or unrealisable. However, it is during such moments that we are truly tested. How much do we really desire to take our lives to the next level? How committed are we to our goals?
The Universe will take notice of your psyche during these times. Do you get up and tackle the day to the best of your ability, or do you give up in frustration?
A common misconception exists which dictates big and quick results are the markers of success. However, anyone that has accomplished anything of great value can tell you that their current situation was a result of many days of “mini-successes”, one building on top of each other…with a fair amount of failures along the way that had to be learned.
It’s an incredible thing to observe how taking that next small step can give you a sense of confidence and excitement which will lead to the next step, and the next, and so on, by signaling to the world that you are making a decision to proceed, doors open and opportunities present themselves.
One of my favourite books of all time is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The story involves a young boy on a journey to find his treasure. He is often tested in terms of his passion to follow his dream, and is told, “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
In an uncanny manner, he learns this to be true. As he takes each step, he is moved closer and closer to his goal. This does not mean he isn’t tested, but he proves himself worthy of his dream.
We can all learn a bit from this inspirational character! Do we take those next steps, or remain paralyzed? Take that next baby steps and watch miracles unfold. The Universe is listening.
