was birthed as a result of my own personal journey to live life to the fullest. Are you currently living life to the fullest? Are you living the life you dreamt about? If not, then let’s discover why not. If so, then maybe you need a new dream to discover and pursue.
My name is Austin J Haines, the creator and founder of Free Will Dream. Free Will Dream, or FWD, came to me in a flash of inspiration when I realized that too few people were actually living their Life Dream. Sadly, I learned, most people never even pursue their Life Dream. What’s more, I realized how many people were living lives they did not like or working at a job they loathed. Strangely enough, they were living lives that were not in alignment with what they truly wanted to be, do, have, give, or feel. I looked at my own life and realized that although I had had a lot of success in my life, I was not truly living my dream. Why would we continue to live this way? We have all learned that insanity is doing the same thing in the same way expecting a different result. Yet we all have done this or are doing this now. I would ask people, and I still do to this day, “What is your dream?” Sometimes, I would get answers and other times, I would get blank stares. The people that actually gave me an answer seemed so unsure and doubtful. Yet, others would give me a weak idea of their dream that presented no clarity of thought or feeling. I would then ask a second question, “If all things were possible for you, what would your dream be?” Immediately, I would notice the person’s eyes light up and I would inevitably get a different answer much larger in scope. What was the difference? The major difference, I realized, was BELIEF. The second question momentarily suspends all of the limiting beliefs. What’s more, the second answer detects what’s in one’s heart or what I like to call one’s “True North.” True North is the heart of their Life Dream and the direction they truly want to go.
Through this process of evaluating others and myself, I realized that most people don’t dream, or pursue their dream, due to lack of belief. Their minds our littered with limiting beliefs, therefore their minds are “not free.” I recognized this same truth in myself. My mind was not truly free to dream because of all of the limitations and lack of belief. I realized in others as I did in my own life, that if you work to get your mind free to believe in the possibilities for your life, you will discover your true Life Dream. I say discover because I believe you already know in your heart what your true Life Dream is. You may need to search to find that dream, but it is there. Your Life Dream may have been buried in all of the limiting beliefs you created or accepted from others. You may have avoided taking action on your Life Dream due to a story you have told yourself. This story may affirm all of the reasons you fail to act. Maybe, life just got in the way. Truly searching will lead you to the “True North” as symbolized in my logo. Once you get your mind “Free,” I mean really get yourself to believe in the possibilities for your life; you “Will Dream” and discover your “True North.”
Let’s get started on this journey together. I invite you to take this journey to discover, pursue, and fulfill your dream with Free Will Dream. Can you imagine living a life in which you never discovered or pursued your Life Dream? What would that feel like?
Now, imagine that you truly take action to discover, pursue, and fulfill your Life Dream. How does that make you feel? What does that look like?
The time is now. History teaches us that the great men and women of our time make quicker decisions and change them less frequently. Also, we know that the best chance to make a change is when the emotion is high. If we wait we turn our future into the hands of the law of diminishing intent, which means the longer we wait the lower our motivation gets. William James, the great psychologist and philosopher, says it best. “If you want your life to change, you must do it immediately and you must do it flamboyantly.”
All things are possible
Impossible has been consistently redefined on the pages of history. Why not redefine your own history and create new beliefs about what’s possible for you.
Just to get you started on the journey to believe in the possibilities for your life…
