You have to be willing to take your dreams seriously because the world would come to a stop if there were no one with new ideas, thought or imagination. It definitely takes a daring and tenacious effort to be on a journey to pursue something beyond your current reality. But if you do not, who will?
Don’t you dream big? Yet, how far can you go to fulfill your dreams? Do you have a limit? Can you quit everything now to pursue what you want? Are you able to go against the flow in order to follow your vision? Do you have the courage to forget all else just to see your desire come true?
Countless of you aspire to be something greater than you are now and it is fine. But how many really make it to the end? Most people know what to do but for some reason, they are scared or feel like it is impossible to achieve their dreams.
And you heard or believe it before: “Dream big, dream loud!” But today, do you still? Of course, there are the gloomy nay-sayers who say dreams do not pay the bills. It may be true at first. But if some people did not take dreams seriously, they would not have created some of the items you use every day like your phone, computer, internet, appliances, etc. and the list goes on.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. ~ Mark Twain
Give Your Dreams a Go
So, it is better to have a ‘go’ than to have regrets. Yes, it is difficult to accept the hard truth. And like most people, you can settle down for what you have and be content. But if you are, like me, on a mission, you know about the myriad of obstacles in your way. And you also know about the fierce difficulties you are about to face.
Furthermore, do not worry or wonder if you have the ability to pursue your dreams. If it has a place in your heart, it is because you have the power to make that dream a reality. And if you are serious enough, as you fall or fail, you will find the determination to get back up. So, do not ever give up.
Moreover, you must be willing to ignore people who believe you cannot achieve what you want. On the other hand, there are also numerous people wanting to do the same exact thing you desire. At times, it can feel like an opposition, killing your morale, but keep the focus on your vision and take your dreams seriously by giving them a go.
Do it Out of Love
When you have a dream, it is often passion talking. So, do not pursue it for money, success, fame or power, but instead, do it out of love for it. Genuine love is indeed the only thing that comes without a price. Doing it for something else gives a negative impact and you will not succeed. But when you do something you care about, you only think of the outcome and that is when success appears.
Therefore, when you take your dreams seriously, you do it for the happiness and pleasure it brings you. If you do the same on your journey towards your goal and are consistent in your actions, you will surely make it big. You have to keep going by making the next step forward.
So, be focused on doing things with love and in time, the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll land among the stars. ~ Les Brown
Begin to Hunt your Dreams
Now, the real game begins. So far, you crossed the first hurdle because of passion and love. In order to make it big from here, you have to forget all else and hunt your dreams. Imagine yourself where you want to be. Begin visualizing your vision with the end in mind. Then break it down into the steps you need to reach your goal. And play for the love of it.
Like so, you will have no fear of failure haunting you and you are naturally better at whatever you are doing. Your time is precious as you have only one life. So, how do you want to live it? One choice is to chase your dreams regardless of the outcome or the other is settling down for an ordinary existence.
Therefore, do not consult your fears and doubts but listen to your heart and dreams. Let go of your frustrations, and think instead about your unfulfilled potential. Be concerned with what is imaginable for you to do and not with your failures or defeats. And so, begin to live the life you imagine.
Take Your Dreams Seriously
As a result, do what makes you feel most alive. And you might feel the need to go after your dreams while you still are at your regular job. For most people, it is better to have job security while seeking a goal on the side. Yet, it is not the ideal plan.
And yes, it may work for a while as you are quite comfortable that way. You may even handle both things together. However, there comes a time where you have to make a choice. And this option holds the capacity to change your life.
At this point, however, you have already come a long way in your journey, so it is the time to make a choice and to take your dreams seriously. Yes, it might require some courage and effort. But for impossible ideas to come true and to make it big, you have to do something different from anyone else.
Do what Sounds Crazy
Countless others before you have followed the common path for decades by doing mediocre things. It may be hard at first, but after it gets easier because most people are going to quit right here. And you are not. Instead, you are going to fight for it.
So, once you have crossed this chapter, you are already much closer to success than most people will ever be. Following everyone else’s path is a safe and direct idea but it is not going to take you anywhere. And to achieve greatness, you need to set your own ideas and create your own path.
Therefore, rather than following the guidelines set by an average lot, make your own and follow your dreams. Even if what you are doing sounds crazy to others around you, you are just trying to find a new way. Follow the voice in your heart and believe in yourself as it is a great asset to have.
Make your Dreams a Reality
So, if you can make it this far, you stand in the top five percent of people who would not quit as of now. From now on, you just have to be consistent. All worthy dreams in life come with a price and they take a long time. The greatest pleasure in life is to do what others say you cannot do.
But if it is doing what you love, the outcome will be far greater than expected. Just seek the enormous pleasure and happiness in your destination instead of worrying about your journey. And of course, there will be times when you will feel like quitting.
However, if you do something long enough, it compounds and begins to take effect. Then momentum builds and flows, and you begin to experience extraordinary results. Everyone starts with a dream. I did. It all starts with a vision.
And yes, it is obvious that you need to work hard to make it a reality. But if every day, you take a step towards realizing what you want, you will achieve it. I believe in you. So, take your dreams seriously, because if you do not, no one else will!
