Your dream motivation this week comes from personal dreaming experiences. As a motivational speaker and writer, I am always bombarded with messages from people asking “How do they get back to their happy selves again?”.

If you ever feel miserable because you have to do something that makes you feel uneasy or sad, or even just the fact that you need to get back to work after a wonderful holiday? I know the feeling. I have had those “I wish the weekend was another day longer” moments.

destroy the things which destroy your dreams


These experiences tend to drain the life out of us and we are left feeling worse than what we ever imagined. So when do we actually decide to claim back the happiness? When do we decide to not allow that specific “experience” to steal what makes us feel good? Next month or maybe next week?

I am here to tell you that you should start today to find your dream motivation.

We often think it’s perfectly okay when we feel that way; we even make it a norm to feel down most days. What’s so sad is that we blame it on the weather, our hormones and even our peers. But there is no excuse because you can’t feel anything or any emotion without your given consent.

Take your happiness back today

Here is how you take your happiness back

1. Make a list

Lists bring order to chaos in ones life – Sue Levy

I am a list making lover. I can’t focus if I don’t plan my day with a written list. It helps me to analyse and prioritize what’s important.
Take a moment and think about what makes you unhappy or who makes you sad. Make a list and weigh what you can deal with and what you just want out of your life. It will give you a better understanding of what is going on in your head

2. The Exclusion process

It’s as easy as excluding the things that break you down – Sue Levy

See if it’s possible to not be a part of it, if you don’t like doing admin, ask or hire someone else to do it. That will give you more time to focus on what you want. You don’t need to do something that makes you unhappy, by not doing it you are taking back control of your life and not being forced to do something that drains you. 

3. Say your goodbyes

Goodbyes are a way of saying, I need a fresh start – Sue Levy

It’s hard to part from something you love or has become a habit. But the first step to taking back your happiness is to destroy that thought of “I can’t” destroying the negative things on your life today! Why even let them live in your mind another day.

Moral of the story

Don’t be afraid to stand up for you and say NO to what is destroying your being. If you entertain things in your life that pose of no value to you, you can’t blame others but yourself for allowing it. Don’t waste precious time on things that bring you no joy.

Take back your power today! Destroy what is destroying your happiness and your dreams and be the happy dreamer you were born to be.

Sincerely, Sue

    I’m addicted to checking things off of lists. When I have trouble falling asleep I add stuff to my lists and it clears up space in my brain. Great post as always!

    • Hi Iman

      That makes two of us. I totally get what you are saying, I tend to even make a list on my phone if I cant sleep.
      Thanks for sharing in my list-obsession :)Love to you!

  • I love lists too! They don’t always get checked off, but having them visually in front of me keeps me focused. Thanks Sue for the great post!


    • Hi Heather, 
      Indeed, There are days when I can complete tasks without a list, but then one does not feel as productive as actually seeing how many things gets ticked off on completion. Thanks for your comment
