Your Daily Routine Crushing Your Dreams

If you want something you've never had, then you've got to do something you've never done!

I read this little quote somewhere in the vast world of the internet and I agree with it 1000%!!!
Your daily routine can be great for keeping you organized but can trash your dreams by making you feel stuck in the daily grind of your Life! 
Make sure you can distinguish the difference by understanding what your emotions are telling you! 
Let me share a little story with you;
Last year, Steve and I decided to get married down south which forced some of our family members out of their comfort zone into a reality they had never known. 
Before this trip, my parents for example, had always  taken trips which consisted of them driving, cooking and cleaning up after themselves so we had to explain to them what an all inclusive resort actually included. Besides them feeling nervous about a place they had never visited, they were confused by the idea that drinks and meals were already paid for, their beds made up for them, and their rooms tidied up by the amazing staff. 
As they arrived on the resort I could see the uncertainty in their eyes. What was this place? How are we going to feel at home here? Well, it didn't take very long before they were happy as can be, already planning their next all inclusive trip! Amazed at how wonderful it felt to really relax and not have to complete any chores! A new reality was brought to them! Even 80 year old grandma found herself loving and enjoying the "pampered" treatment!
This is a simple example of doing something different. For some it may include changing their eating habits or exercise, for others it may include thinking more positively or listening more and speaking less. Some may want to jump out of a plane, and for others it may simply include using their other hand to brush their teeth!
Whether you're picking up dancing or painting for the first time, or learning to ride a bike, the reality is If you want something you've never had, then you've got to do something you've never done!

So check in with your daily routine and make sure its helping you build a better reality and not crushing your dreams!
