When we are kids, we believe that we can achieve everything. We dream big, with no limits, not worrying about how and more about what and where.

Unfortunately, as we grow older, our adult mind starts to disengage from those beliefs. We lose fight in our dreams—which creates room for insecurities and hopeless.

But the demands of adulthood should not suppress youthful ambitions.

YOU CAN, AND YOU SHOULD!

Preserve your inner child it can be, especially during the burnout phases of our lives, a source of strength that instills growth; an opening to think outside the box.

You probably won’t become a rockstar or an astronaut, but these initial desires surely have a deeper and more complex nuance than you think.  

Maybe what you actually wanted was freedom and an exciting unconventional lifestyle discovering the world, getting recognized for what you love to do and receiving substantial income for it, an opportunity to challenge while feeling alive is the ultimate goal.

The good news is that you can pursue your dreams and fill those desires in different ways. Becoming an entrepreneur can give you all of this—and more! 

Keep open mind and a welcoming attitude toward different perspectives of life it can help you identify the areas in which you still have a lot to offer.

Here are three good practices for how to identify them:

Feeding yourself with content that inspires you

Knowing that humans are naturally innovative, remember that you are not what you do for a living but the sum of all the ingredients you embrace as a part of yourself.

What type of music do I listen to? What do its lyrics say? What type of conversations do I engage in? What are my interests? Do I spend time with myself? Do I laugh often?

Your intellect needs to be fed with nutritious positive content that broadens your knowledge and vision. So be selective with your habits. The inspiration of your mind depends on how you feed it. 

Surrounding yourself with those who connect you with your inner child

Those who make you feel comfortable being yourself; who encourage you to practice activities that bring well-being to you; who embrace your authentic self, flaws and all, and motivate you to become your best version.

Some people bring out the best in us. You will recognize them because you will feel grateful and empowered after expending time with them.

Identifying the magic in everything you do

Being a rational adult does not necessarily mean that you have to be serious-minded.  Finding magic in everything depends on your ability to connect with your natural creativity while paying attention to sensations in your body.

Don’t underestimate the value of the data our subconscious mind sends us every day. Beautiful coincidences, opportunities and encounters can make a unique story from your day today. 

Are you willing to notice them?

Reflecting on all that you have already accomplished will bring you back the confidence, bravery, and patience you need to continue your wish-fulfillment journey.
