Expert Tip: Don't Share Your Dreams With Everybody
There’s a spiritual philosophy that you don’t share your dreams with everybody.
I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve told people, “I want to serve the world by writing books, getting interviewed, and making $15,000 a speaking engagement," and am met with blank stares.
I get it, they don’t get it. They don’t have to. It’s not their dream. Nobody needs to see what you see, but you. Nobody has to believe you will achieve it, but you.
If you can see something, if you desire something, it’s yours to be had. Trust me on that. And trust the process as you set out to achieve it.
When you tell the Universe what you want and what you need, and when you show up for it - acting in accordance with your desires - you get what you ask for (typically better than you anticipated).
So, be mindful of who you share your dreams with. While what other people think of you is none of your business, you also don’t need their negative juju in your space. Instead, write down your vision of your dreams. If you could have everything you could ever want, what would it look like? Be detailed. Be uncensored. Then, pick one person – your cheerleader of sorts – and share your dream with them, wholeheartedly. Allow them to hold space for you, to believe in you, and when you are on your journey, allow them to remind you of your dream when you begin to question it.
While sharing your dreams with those who don't 'get it' can feel a bit sour, sharing your dreams with those who believe in you makes achieving them that much sweeter.
Happy dreaming, my daydream believers.
