8 Reasons Why You Should Follow Your Dreams

You’re entitled to a life you love!

Happiness and joy are not reserved for a few special ones, you deserve it as much as anyone else. It is your birthright!

What are your dreams? What are the things you wish you would be doing but for some reason you keep putting it off?

It doesn't matter the size of it, big or small, simple or complex, the important thing is for you to start doing more of what you love (daily!) and I'm telling you why it's crucial.

Are you waiting for the right moment?

Do you think you don't have a choice, that that's life and you just have to suck it up?

Don't you believe it’s possible to make your dreams come true?

Wrong, wrong and wrong!

Of course, it takes some emotional work and inspired action to make it happen but it's totally possible.

Here are the reasons why:

1. YOU'LL REGRET IT IF YOU DON'T

Most often than not we regret the things we didn't do, right? And it sucks because we may not have another chance to do it! So, what will you regret tomorrow that you didn’t do today? Make a bucket list, as extensive and as detailed as you want and start checking items as soon as possible.

2. BECAUSE YOU WANT TO

A reason as valid as any other, if not more! There's no rule, besides the one implicit in the social structure, preventing you from doing the things you desire. You are the owner of your life; don't waste it. We´re here to LIVE, not just exist!

3. YOU'LL BE A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

If you decide to go live a life you love, you will give hope to others who want to do the same. By serving as an example you give people permission to give it a try! Sometimes people just need a little inspiration and encouragement. Besides that, your joy and happiness will become contagious!

4. THE POWER IS ON YOUR HANDS

Let’s face it: no one else is going to pursue your dreams for you. If you don’t go for it, no one else will. It may seem daunting but facing the fact that you have the power to do whatever you want with your life is in fact liberating! Stop waiting for outside permission or signs from the Universe. The only sign you need is the calling of your soul. 

5. YOU'LL FEEL HAPPIER

Life without dreams is depressing! When you do the things you love you add meaning and purpose to your life. You will also have more fun, too! Once you get on the path towards your dreams you will notice a change in how you feel. More happiness and joy, that for sure!

6. IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

The happiness that results creates a whole range of physiological changes that improve your health. You will feel more energized, excited, adventurous, confident and less anxious. All of that will improve your entire well-being for the better. Your soul knows what's good for you!

7. YOUR CONFIDENCE WILL RISE

And you’ll enjoy the excitement that comes with doing something you’ve always wanted to do. You will stretch and grow as a person! With time you will appreciate all the experiences you've been through, past failures and value all as learning opportunities.

8. YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE, RIGHT?

Well, I believe in past lives, but even so, I see each one of them as a blessing. So why spend it doing something we don’t love? You're still going to need to be doing things that you feel are boring or you dislike (we can't control everything!) and that' s why you should be spending your precious time on this planet doing as much stuff you love as possible.

It's time you take back control of your destiny and live the life you were meant to live, not the one people expect you to!
