Find Inspiration: No Opportunity Wasted

I was thoroughly inspired today when I watched today's Oprah show on "Once in a Lifetime Dares." Phil Keoghan, author and host of NOW: No Opportunity Wasted which airs on Fit TV and the Discovery Channel was on the show. I never heard of this show until today. Phil gives you 72 hours and $3,000 to go out and follow your dream. It's all about living your life now!

For a long time I was stuck in the past or dreaming of the future. I was unhappy about mistakes made in the past and thinking I would only be happy in the future when I had this and that. Little did I realize that I was losing time in the present. I kept thinking about all the things that I wanted to do, but felt like I needed more time or money to make my dreams come true. Now I know that all I have is now to start making things happen.

What are your dreams? Is it traveling around the world? Becoming a published writer? What are you doing today to achieve those dreams? You can start with baby steps, just as long as you get the wheels in motion - that's what is most important. I have one dream that I've been working on for about three years now. It takes action to turn your thought into a dream.

Where do you start? I suggest using creative visualization first. Every morning and at night before bed meditate on what you want to accomplish in life. Picture yourself in the situation you want with full details....what you're wearing...sights...sounds... You can even create a folder or scrapbook with magazine clippings, articles, notes and thoughts about your dream. Look at this scrapbook every day to keep you motivated towards your goal. By the time you know it, you'll begin to take action towards your dream!
