Become The Architect Of Your Reality You’re probably no stranger to the power of positive thinking and manifesting, and that by putting a shiny spin on any situation, you really can turn things around. However, when you apply this type of mindset to achieving your dreams, the sky really is the limit.

So if you’re ready to start carving out your dreams, here are four steps to help you create that blueprint for success. (Warning: step four does contain a powerful video that will prompt you to take action!)

1) Ask yourself: “Is It Meant To Be?”

Do you feel that your deepest desire was always meant to come true? For example, perhaps you’ve found yourself taking the conventional route in life, however, deep down, you know you were always destined for a unique path? Maybe one that took you further afield to the other side of the world to pursue an artistic dream? Or maybe your dream is closer to home, and you know that your calling is to be a parent, or to own a local cafe or to go down a spiritual path where your life purpose is to connect with your consciousness on a much deeper level. Listen to what your inner voice is telling you – it always speaks the truth.

2) Dream Like You’ve Never Dreamt Before

Now that you’ve accepted what you want – embrace it. Incorporate it into your daydreams, make your vision board, talk like it’s already yours, do your positive affirmations – whatever it is takes to make you realize that it can become a reality, and that you do deserve it. Yes, you may need to move some proverbial mountains to make it happen, but most people do. Success (no matter how you define it) rarely falls onto anyone’s lap. It often does takes blood, sweat and tears (and sometimes tears again!), but they’ll all be worth it once you look back and see how far you’ve come, and there will be a day when you realize you wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

3) Actions Speak Louder Than Words

What can you do to make it happen? While dreaming is fundamental in switching your mindset from “I wish I could do this” to “I will do this” – as with any great plan, you need to follow it up with some action! Taking a leap into the unknown with only your inner voice as your guide can be scary (especially if any thoughts of self-doubt are lurking about), however you won’t find that new job unless you look, or meet the person you’re meant to spend the rest of your life with unless you put yourself in different situations. Join that dance class, save up for that holiday or go and try that Internet dating website everyone has been raving about. You’ll always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take – so give yourself a chance and start shooting for the stars.

4) Like Any Architect, Arm Yourself With The Right Tools

All of the above can be implemented by you and only you. But when embarking on any journey in life, help is often needed to guide you in the right direction, or give you that little pick-me-up when needed – especially if your self-confidence is flagging behind your shining dream.

So to give yourself that extra boost and send you on your way, watch this video to learn how you can become your very own reality architect and start living those experiences your inner voice has been screaming out for you to have!
