KNOW Your True Self Series- “Be A Dreamer” {1}

23 Comments

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. - Harriet Tubman

This is the First Part of the “KNOW Your True Self Series” of Articles. You will find more details of this life altering series at the end of this article.

I believe that Knowing your true self is the key to all happiness, contentment, peace and serenity. I believe when we realize our dreams, we come closer to knowing our calling.

For how long in a day, do you truly dream? Pause for a minute right now…have you been day dreaming? If your answer is yes..Yippee! But, if your answer is no, then no time like the present to start working on those beautiful dreams.

Just look at everything around you-your computer, your coffee/tea cup, your phone, your favorite book, your notepad, your clothes…just notice everything. All these things…even this Geographical Map, which has numerous places, with so many names of streets, even the light pole on that street…it was all first part of someones day dream. A very very productive day dream, that they turned into a reality.
But do we truly pay attention to these dreams in our real life or do we just shrug them under the carpet? How many of your dreams are catching the dust under the carpet instead of seeing the light of day?

Here are some ways to help you make sure your dreams DO turn into a reality, while helping you learn more about your true self:

Nothing happens unless first we dream.~ Carl Sandburg

  1. Don’t wait- We often shrug our dreams under the carpet cause we think the time isn’t right. We think when everything is right, we will be able to make it work. Let me tell you one thing- It will never be perfect. Perfection is a myth..hence running behind it is just crushing your dreams and thereby trampling you true-self from seeing the light too. Act on your dreams now….If Albert Einstein would’ve given up and shrugged his dreams under the carpet, we would never have advanced in the field Quantum Physics like we have today.
  2. There will always be challenges- Obstacles and less than perfect conditions will always come up. So what? Your belief in yourself and your dream should be so strong, that no imperfect conditions in the world should be able to stop you. Your belief in your dream will make you shine. “Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it.” ~ Sir Winston Churchill
  3. Get started now- DO you have a dream? Start work on that dream right now! No time like the present and nothing more empowering than to give your dreams the wings it badly needs.
  4. Make a plan- A small plan as to how this dream will come into reality always helps. Spend 5 minutes a day on that plan, and see the immense creativity, productivity and sense of purpose you feel. You will be a force of nature!
  5. Every step makes you stronger- With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful. Thereby making your self esteem, self confidence and True self shine and fly high.“Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
  6. Meditate on your dream- By concentrating and meditating on your dream, you are shaping it in your minds eye. You are sending out the right signals to the Universe to listen, sit up and take notice. Not only does the Universe and Its Divine hand help you, but this divinity creates a pathway for the true materialization of your beautiful dream.

“I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams.” ~ Jonas Salk

Be a Dreamer….its the first step in realizing your truest self!

  1. Hi Zeenat,
    This is beautiful and soooo very important! I, too believe it is in knowing ourselves and recognizing our dreams that we truly understand there are NO LIMITS. Awesome points – we cannot wait around for “the circumstances to be perfect”… if we did we might miss out on EVER seeing our dreams manifest.

    The more I dream and meditate as to WHAT I want and my dreams – the more I have pulled it to me. I used to be in disbelief it could be THIS easy…. The hardest part for me is “letting go”. Making a plan and baby steps are a wonderful way to begin and set you on your path. It’s also important to recognize the path may wind and change and you need to be aware of that and “go with the flow”. You might need to re-asses the next steps instead of FORCING it to go the way “you thought it should”.

    This is beautiful – stumbled, tweeted and thoroughly enjoyed. May you have a joyous day Zeenat!

    Love, xo
    Jenny

    • HI Jenny,
      Such a wonderful and insightful comment. Its beautiful that you know exactly what your dreams are…and are well in the process of them materializing. Its amazing when we let go of all inhibitions and thoroughly believe in our self..magic can happen :) And yes, rather than expecting….its best to go with the flow…the Universe steers us int he right direction.
      Thank you for your support in spreading the message …
      So much Love~

  2. Most certainly, I believe in not waiting for a perfect time. It is true that there will ALWAYS be challenges. Where the will is strong, magic can happen (as you’ve also said to Jenny). I love nurturing my garden of dreams!

  3. yayyy thank u :) super like

    • W Salam Mohammed,

      Our thoughts our dreams are what make us US..make us unique. Realizing them gives us so much contentment and peace…that which no amount of money can buy.
      Thank you fro your beautiful comment here.

  6. Hi Zeenat,

    Planning, taking action, and meditating have huge power and help us really achieve our goals. Without them, it will be hard to achieve our dreams and goals. Thanks for sharing

  7. i was waiting for this seires… :) really wanted to know myself…Thanks sis

  8. Those are all very important steps to accomplishing anything that we want in life! The most important thing is to take action, no matter how small. Once we get moving and experience a little bit of success we are so much more likely to take the next step and the next and before we know it we have accomplished more than we thought possible! It all started with one little action step.

    I look forward to the rest of this series! :)

    Stacy

  9. that’s an inspiring post Zenat
    you are right, all big goals start with a big dream
    thank u:)

  10. Nice article Z, I especially like your approach “he articles will be short, simple & full of practical ways to Know Your True self.” This is a much overlooked subject and it deserves an easy to understand and follow “practical” approach. How timely that you are writing this series and my new book “TRUE SELF” which takes a similar approach will be on Amazon,com the first of November. Inner harmony is not possible without knowing who we are on the deepest levels and then aligning our lives with that inner person, our TRUE SELF.

  11. Hi Zeenat! “You had me at hello” when you said – I believe that Knowing your true self is the key to all happiness. It’s so true but not always so easy. I’m constantly working on it though. :)
    I love your points. I also meditate on my dreams. Whatever we focus our attention on we create, right? I also like to use mind maps to have a clear picture of my goals.
    Beautiful post! Loving blessings!
