Newsflash: You should ACTUALLY follow your heart

Hi there! Yeah, you! Are you constantly torn between what others want you to do and what you truly want to do with your life? Do you keep telling yourself you’ll do it once you have a stable job? Do you keep putting off your dream life? If you answered yes to any of those questions, this is for you! Here are a few things you need to do so you can live your dream life regret-free:


  1. ACKNOWLEDGE IT

 No seriously! That’s the first step. Tell yourself that’s what you want to do.

2. TELL SOMEONE ELSE

This step is super important. The moment you tell someone about your goals, you’ll feel obligated to achieve them. Which in this case, is exactly what you want!

3. MAKE A PLAN

Okay as much as we’d like to wake up to our dream life, one day in the future, it takes work to get there. Do your research! What is it that you wish to achieve and taking which steps will help you get there? Set monthly or yearly goals.

4. EXECUTE THE PLAN

As a wise brand once said: Just do it! Follow your plan. Apply to those jobs! Take those classes that’ll improve your skills! You got this!

5. TRACK YOUR PROGRESS

So now that you’ve made a plan and executed it, you need to see if it’s working. Take a look back at the goals you listed for that month or that year. Have you achieved that goal? Do you feel more confident in yourself? If your answer is no, change up your plan and try again! Persistence is key 🙂

And so if you’re looking for a sign, this is it! Totally universe-approved 🙂 FOLLOW YOUR HEART! YOU GOT THIS!
