Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where we do not know what to do next. We may feel lost and confused as if we are stuck inside a maze with no way out. The first thing you should know is that you are not alone! If fact, there were other people who felt the same way as you do , but they were able to find a way out of it.

What if I told you right now that there is one way out of the maze? Would you believe me?

The truth is, there are many ways out of the maze, but only one will lead us to our dreams. The problem is that not everyone thinks outside the box. Instead, people choose the path of least resistance.

They will follow others who have already been where they were going and copy what they did. As a result, there is no progress made and everyone ends up stuck in the same place forever.

In order to be happy, we need to take that one way out that leads us to our dreams. There are seven main principles that guide us to get there. You can follow them or at least have an idea what they are all about.

Here are the principles you need, Seven Principles to Guide You To Your Dreams:

1- Awareness of self

You should know where you are before anything else. Are you happy with your life right now? If you are not, why would you continue to do the same thing expecting different results?

2- Know what you want

This is the most important part. People think they know what they want in life but after obtaining it, realize that it was not what they actually wanted. You need to be clear about what you really want. Do not expect to get there if you are still stuck in the maze while everyone else is getting further and further away.

3- Discipline

Life is filled with opportunities that are ready to be taken, but they will pass by if you do not have the discipline to seize them at once. If you lose out on an opportunity today, it may turn into a nightmare tomorrow. It is better to act now than regret later.

4- Perseverance

If you fail, do not give up (yet). You may want to try something different or go back and revisit your original idea. There are countless examples of people who tried something over and over until they succeeded. However, if you continue to fail, take a break and come back to it at another time. You might have better luck then.

5- Patience

There are times when you need to take action immediately. There are also times where you should not do anything. Situations vary. The moment will change as well as your position in the maze if you wait long enough. The important thing here is not to act impulsively and regret your decisions later.

6- Courage

Every dream you have should take some degree of courage to achieve, even if it means asking for help or saying no to certain things. The worst that can happen is that you lose out on the opportunity which only leads to another opportunity. If you never try, you will never know.

7- Open mindedness

The final principle ensures that we are open to every possibility and not missing out on anything. Sometimes people get so set in their ways, they miss out on other possibilities. To make this work, you need to see the bigger picture about everything around us. We may never be fully aware of the bigger picture, but it is important to know that it exists.

Now you have all of these principles to guide you, there are many things you can do with the knowledge. For example, if you are not sure what your dream is, try asking yourself this question: What would I do if money was not an object?

You may want to take a break and really think about that question. What would you do if money was not an object? This is what your dreams are made of, but it is important you be honest in your answer. If you say that you will travel the world when in reality, you are afraid of flying, this should be a clear indication that your dream should not be to travel the world.

Once you have a clear idea of what you want, you can do something about it. This is a first step forward and the only way from here is up! Keep reminding yourself of these principles as they will help steer you in the right direction.

Final thoughts

All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them. Many people fail in their dreams because they do not put in enough effort. If you want something, go after it with everything you’ve got. A dream is a wish your heart makes, so make sure you listen to yours!
