Five minutes from the life of your dreams? Sounds incredible, right? I’d be willing to bet that if I approached anyone and told them that they could have the life of their dreams for a simple five minutes of their time, my guess is that I’d have a 100% response rate with the answer being an enthusiastic YES!. Is it truly possible to achieve the life of your dreams in only 5 minutes? I absolutely know that it can be done, it’s happening to people all over the world, day in and day out. People are attaining their true destinies and living the lives of their dreams. The question is…why isn’t everyone?
It seems that everyone is so caught up with their immediate needs, that they forget that life is a marathon and not a sprint. How many times have you personally said, “as soon as I get caught up with… – then I’ll have plenty of time to do…? It happens to everyone and one thing after another takes a majority of our time, energy and focus away from what is the most important thing we seek…our true destiny.
How could something so incredible and truly life changing be put on the back burner and let out in the cold, waiting for us to have enough time to actually focus on it? A few things immediately come to mind. The first is that most people truly don’t believe that they deserve or should have the lives of their dreams. They get caught up in the churn of daily existence and they feel that joy, happiness, prosperity and abundance are strictly for “other people”. It’s a sad outlook on life and one that is unfortunately predominate in today’s culture.
A second reason that people don’t live the life of their dreams is that they want something more in life but aren’t willing to do the heavy lifting involved in getting what they want. While its true that the Universe will grant you everything you want in life, its also true that you must take action and make things happen for yourself.
So, knowing that some people don’t believe that the life of their dreams is possible and others want a great life but don’t have the time for it, how can five minutes turn things around for both groups? It’s easy. Anyone who falls into the above groups can greatly impact their lives by focusing on the positives and reducing or completely eliminating the negatives. In life, you get what you give. Whether it’s love, happiness, joy, health, abundance, prosperity or freedom, the only way to truly achieve all that life can offer is to give more, knowing that you will get more.
If you know someone who is really down or feeling negative, have them try this five minute experiment. For one week have them focus on spending simply five minutes a day on what it is that they want out of life. Let them know that their is no dream too big or no want to extravagant for the Universe and all it has to offer. Tell them to really stretch themselves in what it is that they really want.
Once they have a good idea in their head, have them do this simple exercise. Spend five minutes a day finding that trait in someone else. It could be anyone, husband, wife, friend, family member or complete stranger. It doesn’t matter who it is, jus that them focus for five minutes daily on finding that trait in someone else. Doing this will help them in several ways. First, many may not see the true beauty or talent in themselves and seeing it in someone else can make things easier. Second, by focusing on finding this magic or beauty in someone else, people start searching for positive, wonderful outcomes, instead of focusing on the negative.
Try this for a week, then in the second week, pick another trait and focus on that, along with the first trait you focused on. In no time at all, you’ll notice that spending five minutes a day is gradually transforming your life and the outcomes you’re looking for. These positive feelings and beliefs will quickly and permanently change your outlook and destiny forever.
Just remember, the next time you’re stuck in traffic, waiting in line, or simply have five minutes to spare – don’t dwell on the negative. Start focusing on finding all the incredible abundance that the Universe has to offer and I guarantee you that the five minutes you spend will be the most valuable time of your life. May the Universe deliver the life of your dreams!
