A Map When You Don't Know How to Start Your Secret Dream

You've probably seen these great cards with the inspirational poems of Susan Polis Schutz, published by a company called Blue Mountain Arts. Maybe you've sent ecards  from their website.

I don't know the details of Susan's life, much less the secret yearnings of her soul, though much of her heart is reveal through her writings.  I do know that I used to collect her cards, because they spoke to me when I needed encouragement.

Here's one that might give you the practical courage you're needing today.

Believe In Yourself And Your
Dreams Will Come True

Know what you can and want to do in life.
Set goals for yourself and work hard to achieve them.
Strive to have fun every day.
Use your creativity as a means of expressing your feelings.
Be sensitive in viewing the world.
Develop a sense of confidence.
Be honest with yourself and with others.
Follow your heart and adhere to your own truths.
Know that the more you give the more you will receive.
Believe in yourself and your dreams will come true.

~ Susan Polis Schutz ~ 

This could be a road map for all of us.  If you feel a yearning -- or even a soul-whisper -- to do something big with your life, it will be difficult to set a goal that moves you forward in that direction.  

But you can still strive for fun, and to give more of yourself to others. You can still work on expressing yourself authentically, and creatively.  You can still look on the world with sensitive compassion, and listen to your heart to perceive your own truths.  Even one of these, consistently applied, leads to deeper, unshakable self confidence.

These are the steps to believing in yourself.  Take them, and trust that the dream of your soul life will reveal itself to you.  That time will come when you know exactly what purpose you are here to manifest. And once that occurs, the goals and your motivation for achieving them will be unstoppable.

You can do it.  Start with being open to allowing it to happen.
