When Making Dreams Come True Is As Easy As Brushing Our Teeth

Posted by patrick

By Masami Sato

Can't making dreams come true be just as easy? Can't we free ourselves of our doubts? Is it not possible? How can we do it in a way so that it looks as easy as brushing our teeth? This is an excerpt form the book named ONE by Masami Sato and it shows how it can be done step-by-step, getting one ready to start walking towards one's dreams today.

We all have dreams. But not all of us have the faith in ourselves, that we can have and live those dreams in our lifetime. Actually, the secret to have such certainty is simple. And the reason why we doubt it so much is also straightforward.

Let us start with the first question that can be asked to us..

Why do we not do the things we want to do?

Often, our thoughts stop our actions. Sometimes the more we think about it, the less we become committed to accomplish what we initially wanted to do. Because the more we think about it, we come up with more and more reasons for not doing it.

Is it then possible to be sure that we will definitely accomplish what we want to do in our life?

Sure, absolutely! To start with, let us look at the power of habits

If we are scheduled to go to a meeting tomorrow night, we wouldn't spend lots of time thinking whether we can get there or not. We wouldn't be concerned about the chance of having a car accident and missing the appointment. Just like when we are walking to the bathroom, we wouldn't worry that the toilet might be broken!

We have so much more sureness about these types of 'normal' activities we indulge in every day. They are the habits.

However, we doubt our dreams

Interestingly, there are so many things we are not so sure about. Especially the things we really want to do in our life - our Dreams!

Then, what is the secret for the conviction that we will accomplish our dreams?

First: Decide to make it a daily habit!

We can get started by being more confident about our acts meant to meet our desires - the type of dreams that actually fosters our life.

As for example, if your dream is to be a factor in improving society, and it is an important desire in your life, it will be possible for you to play that role and contribute to society. It can easily be made one of your daily habits.

Second: Make it as important (and as easy) as brushing our teeth

Achieving our dreams can be just like brushing our teeth. It wouldn't feel good if we didn't brush our teeth for a long time, would it? We wouldn't spend hours thinking of which toothpaste to use or delay the good feeling of having clean teeth for other 'priorities'. We feel uncomfortable if our teeth are not clean. So we just clean them!

Back to our example, if giving is our utmost desire, then we need to ask ourselves these questions: What if giving actually was as important as brushing our teeth? What if it makes us feel good? And what if it kept our life healthy?

No matter how much or little we perceive we have right now, we really can start giving and sharing today. So no matter how seemingly impossible it is to achieve our dreams, we can start walking towards them today. We can if we see it as something important, a top priority that we should do every day! Then we won't feel comfortable if we don't do it. Just like brushing our teeth.

and Third: Give first, then we will get back

When we start giving before we even have what we hope to get - that which we dream of - we are sending out a powerful message to ourselves which tells us, 'there is enough, and more will come.' It allows us to feel the joy today - the joy of giving.

If you want to be rich, be generous. And you'll be blessed with abundance. If you want to be superbly intelligent, don't be afraid to teach others. And you'll know more. If you want to give, just give selflessly. Do not attach any expectation of return. Just let go. And joy will automatically be rewarded to you. The simple joy of giving.

So do not be afraid to share and give what you have, for it will not hinder you from achieving your purpose, whatever it is. It will only make you achieve your dreams quicker. And your journey there will be full of joy.

But are not habits very small, when compared to our BIG dreams?

Just do it, don't worry about the 'scale'

Because anything can take place in life. We might get started in a pretty simple way. And these simple things might lead us to another act, and form there to another. Our confidence in our simple actions and executing them one by one constantly takes us forward. But if we feel that it is unfeasible to do something now because it is simply unachievable, it is unlikely to ever happen.

The secret to achieve your dreams has always been here, and will always be here. The people who create miracles, inspirations, and the real sense of joy, already know this. They are always using it.

Visions and miracles do not happen accidentally. We choose to create them.

So, would you start walking towards your dreams today?
