For flair, I’ll use a quote from the movie Pretty Woman and ask you . . .
What’s your dream?
To Dream the Impossible Dream
How do you perceive your dreams? Do you think they’re possible? Many people view their dreams like a wish. If it happens, great. If it doesn’t happen they dismiss it by saying that it wasn’t meant to be. Wasn’t meant to be? Are you saying that failure is meant to be? No, the reality is that something happened and you chose to give up or settle because you stopped believing in the power and possibility of your dreams and yourself.
“The only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams is you.”
If you’re daydreaming of a better life I’d say that means you’re not happy with your current life. What can you do to make those dreams a reality? Can you resurrect and rekindle your dreams, or dream new dreams? Of course you can, and as long as they are not delusional dreams, why not turn them into reality? Other people have done it, at any age, against all odds, overcoming all obstacles, why can’t you?
“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”
Very often we let fear hold us back. But what exactly are you afraid of? If you fail, you’ll just end up back to where you are now. If you don’t try you’ll certainly never get ahead, so isn’t it worth a shot?
Now to be clear, I’m not saying to sell the house and quit your job, because right now that might actually be a scary thought, instead, I suggest that you plan your attack and attack your plan. This will allow you to see that the dream is possible and that alone can help you to get past the fear that may be holding you back.
“Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.”
Get the Party Started
If you want to live the life you’ve only dreamt about, you have to stop dreaming and start doing. If you don’t act, you cannot attain anything of value, you’ll just end up with leftovers and tumbleweed, basically whatever just comes your way.
“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”
Don’t accept stagnancy, good fortune will not just come to you of its own accord, the ship does not come in so stop waiting, you must go after it. Even the lucky people who win the lottery had to act and buy a ticket. They did something that positioned them to succeed. While that may not be the most odds in your favor type of endeavor, it still took action.
What’s your dream? A new car? Traveling the world? Being a great parent? Running a large company? Starting a charity? How can you make it happen? What will it take? After you figure out what to do, do it. Get started!
