Dreams Come True

March 2, 2007
by Lianne Avila, MFT

Sometimes you ignore your own dreams because of self-doubt, fear, or external complications. You can think of many different excuses to brush those dreams aside. But, your world will become more exciting, and you will begin to live a more passionate and meaningful life, if you go after your dreams.


So, what is your dream?  After a diagnosis of Breast Cancer, it can deplete your self-esteem.  When, in reality, you have weathered through the storm. The year after I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I set some new goals for myself.  I wanted to go to Hawaii and I did.  I decided to move to Southern California and I did.  I also decided to live my life with more passion. 


What are the goals you have set for yourself?  It is important we each set goals in our life.  This will make your life more meaningful and passionate. Make the first step and write down your goals.  Research shows when people write down their goals they are more likely to achieve their goals.


The next step is to implement a plan.  If you want to take a vacation, then plan, when and where you will go. If you want to start a new career, then start networking. 


Remember, to persevere.  It is not always easy to reach a goal.  But, the harder you work the sweeter the victory. 


When you reach your goal, reward yourself.  You have put a lot of hard work into reaching your goal, take time to enjoy the victory.


I wish you all great success in your new life!
