10 Reasons Why Our Dreams Don't Come True

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

So you have a dream. You have done everything in your power to make this dream come to fruition. You have prayed, taken classes, visualized, but you do not see the results that you want. 

What most of us do not realize is that our dreams take shape within our belief system. We attract our dreams when we not only actually believe they will come true, but live as though they are true. If we do not believe we can accomplish our dreams because we feel unworthy or lacking in some way, we snatch back our desires and communicate to the Universe that we really don't want our deepest desires.

Signs that our belief system is not aligned with receiving our dreams:
  1. We look to others to give us permission to pursue our dreams
  2. We make light of our dreams to others 
  3. We put conditions on our dreams such as: "When I finish my course," or  "When my children go to college," or "When I lose weight"
  4.  We don't give our dreams priority 
  5.  We don't take the time to strategically plan out how to reach our dreams 
  6.  We fail to ask for help 
  7.  We keep our dreams a secret 
  8.  We let others alter our visions 
  9.  We stop moving forward when someone tells us, "No" 
  10.  We believe it when others tell us it is impossible
When we engage in this type of thinking, we are engaging in competing interests.  When we present dual interests to the Universe (we say one thing, but believe another) we attract what we believe, not what we say.

How to Hold on to Our Dreams:
  1. Examine our belief system 
  2.  Heal the parts of us that allow us to give our dreams away 
  3.  Practice self love and step into our dreams before they are complete
  4. Move forward despite the fear of failing
The universal law of allowance cannot work on our behalf unless we fully in our hearts and minds are aligned with our dreams.  Then, and only then, will we create the beauty of our dreams for ourselves and for others.
