Let Your Dreams Take Over

Your Dreams Really Do Matter. Believe In Yourself & Take Action Towards All Dreams Come True.

For as long as I can remember, I knew that I wanted to be doing big things with my life. I just didn’t believe in myself enough to follow through with making my dreams come true. I listened to the opinions of my friends and family. I let people on TV, radio and online influence my decisions. These exterior voices told me that manifesting my big dreams would be hard and full of turmoil. I found it really hard to make connections with these sources, as there was this tiny little feeling inside me that said “You can do it. You CAN do it. YOU can do it. Do it.” Yet looking around myself, I see that most of my friends and family members wake up, go to work, go home, watch TV, go to bed and then start all over again. The media promotes fear, mediocrity and complacency. Society encourages commitment to 401k plans and rewards those who play it safe. This never felt comfortable to me.

“I believe that you’re great, that there’s something magnificent about you. Regardless of what has happened to you in your life, regardless of how young or how old you think you might be, the moment you begin to think properly, this something that is within you, this power within you that’s greater than the world, it will begin to emerge. It will take over your life. It will feed you, it will clothe you, it will guide you, protect you, direct you, sustain your very existence. If you let it! Now that is what I know, for sure.”

~Michael Bernard Beckwith, Spiritual Leader at Agape International Spiritual Center.

During my twenties, I worked “normal” jobs and made an ok living. I worked at print shops as a professional graphic designer and typesetter. I was really great at pre-press set-up and managing tasks. More recently, at the height of my “career”, I worked at a large art supply company in their corporate office. I had a fancy office and a fancy title and even had people reporting to me. I had a salary, a 401k and routine appointments with my chiropractor to relieve stress. What was I doing? This was my life? This is what I came to Earth to do?

Corporate Lifestyle Before Dreams Came True

Excitement in Rozine’s corporate life included funny hats for a coworker’s birthday.

I was afraid to quit. I was intimidated and scared to think what it might mean to give up the salary, the 401k, the fancy office and business cards with “supervisor” written under my name. I had tried through the years to work as an artist and it wasn’t easy. I usually had to supplement my art gigs with something like a waitressing job to help cover the bills. That’s because I believed my art was a hobby. I didn’t believe that my art was great or magnificent. I was still afraid to believe in my dreams.

Then, something happened. I can’t really say exactly what, except that I started to demand that my dreams were important. The pull became overwhelming. I insisted that I was not here on Earth to crunch numbers in a spreadsheet. I decided that there was something bigger within me. I let it take over my life and it has fed, clothed, guided, protected and directed me. I have worked independently for over a year and I have not missed a meal. I have financial stability. I make my own hours. I create when and what I want. Best of all, I no longer question my existence or my life’s meaning.
