What does it take to move from dream to action?
What is your biggest dream? Perhaps it’s to quit your 9-to-5. It could be to pursue your passions as a digital nomad. Or, it could be to sail the world. Your dream may feel like just that – a dream – but the good news is that there’s absolutely no reason not to make it happen today.
That’s because the simple secret to making your dreams a reality? It lies in trusting the universe and yourself.
I know this first hand: I’m in the process of making my dream happen right now. This summer, I will sell my house and take to the road, embracing my dream active, outdoor lifestyle, and becoming more at one with the universe and myself than ever before, by becoming a digital nomad. What will happen after? I don’t know yet. But I know that the universe has a plan – and that makes it even more exciting.
If you’ve ever dreamed about making a lifestyle change, now’s the time to do it. Here’s how dreaming big and trusting the universe can help you create the life you’ve always wanted…
Dream big and dare greatly
Don’t minimize your dreams, or shrink yourself to fit what you think is expected of you. Having the courage to take risks and be our most authentic selves opens us up to possibilities and opportunities which you may have never before thought possible.
In her bestselling book, ‘Daring Greatly’, Brené Brown writes, “Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”
Be honest with yourself and the universe about what you really want from life – only once you have accepted those authentic dreams will the world open up the opportunities to make them happen, and will you live your most fulfilled life.
Meditate and listen to your intuition
There’s no more powerful sense than your intuition: if a lifestyle feels right or wrong to you, deep inside, pay careful attention to it. Your intuition is your inner life guidance system, and taking the time to meditate and really listen to your authentic thoughts can make realizing what you want from life clearer than ever. Trust your feelings and act on them – you’ll never have felt so free.

Trust the universe
Incredible things happen when you have faith in yourself and the universe. Once you let go of the external worries beyond your control, and realize that the universe has your back – and that it has brought about all the amazing things you have to be thankful for – it makes taking a leap of faith to follow your dreams that much easier.
Say goodbye to self-doubt and put a plan in place
Once you have trust in yourself and the forces around you, you’ll be surprised at how simple it can be to slot the practical pieces of life into place to make your dream happen. For me, that has meant making a plan to sell my house, ensure my businesses run from anywhere so I can work as a digital nomad, and putting the plans in place to travel the US, meeting people and having life-changing experiences, all from my truck.
No matter how big the dream, you’ll be amazed at how achievable it is once you let go of your fears and trust both yourself and the universe. You can make it happen – and you can do it today.
