A part of living to our fullest potential we have to find our truest self. Our true self is not wrapped in a "fancy" degree or in a 5-bedroom house or a top of the line computer or brand new car - those things are merely material, they aren't a part of WHO we are.
Being who we are and finding our authentic self is about living our dream and walking the walk. People can talk and talk about what they want to do in life...but do they actually DO it? Sometimes they do, but more often than not, they don't. Why not? Isn't a dream important to them?
Most people spend more hours at a job they hate than being at home. Does this make sense? I mean people actually go through their daily lives in a job they can't stand just because it may look good or because someone else wants them to do it.
A standard job is about 8 to 9 hours in a day. People spend more time at a job than they do at home. Shouldn't that job be a place that is a good environment?
People talk about going to that resort or cabin in the woods they always wanted to visit...but do they do it?
Living the dream is walking the walk. It isn't just working at a job that is a good fit for you, but actually having a vision for your life and doing it.
Living out the visions and dreams you want for yourself is helping to create the authentic you.
When you set out to walk the path of your dreams, just walk it - without looking back. We all have our own path and our own process.
When you don't follow through with a dream, a part of you dies...and that takes away from your truest self. When a part of you dies, you are letting yourself down.
Walking the walk = living your dream
It's okay to talk your walk, just as long as you are walking at the same time.
