Diversification is a word frequently used by financial advisors when talking about portfolios. In other words, don’t put all your eggs into one basket. So how does that apply when you are talking about your dream when you hear people tell that you have to be singularly focused to get to it? To figure that out, you first have to identify what your real dream is. What I mean by that is, what is the ultimate accomplishment you want to achieve with it.
Here’s an example. I love to play music, specifically guitar, and my life dream as always been to do that a majority of my time. But the minute I start trying to define how that has to happen in absolutes, I have began limiting all the hundreds or maybe thousands of ways that it can happen. For instance, a statement like, “If I get a record deal, all my problems will be over”. Now if you’ve been around the music industry for anytime at all, you’ve began to realize that not only is that not true, but there are a vast number of options that do not include a record label for you to reach your dreams.
When we learn to maintain a focus on the main thing while simultaneously being open to the vast methods and paths our dream can occur, we can start living in a way of exciting expectation of the unknown.
This lesson came to me in phases, usually brought on by circumstances causing me to reevaluate what I was focusing on and where I was spending my time. We were all given an incredible intuition with much debate on the details of what that really is and where it came from. Regardless of what you think it is, you still have it and you can access it at will. This takes practice and focus, but the end result is a way more fun and efficient path to your dream while enjoying the journey along the way.
