We all need to follow our dreams. Some people get lost along the way. Some get sidetracked. Some never even start. We need to figure out early in life the power of our dreams. If you are young, this is the perfect time for you to read this. If you aren’t young, it is still the perfect time. It is never too late to live your dreams. It is never too late to become who you want to become. It is never too late to become who you were born to be.
The most prolific period of pessimism comes at twenty-one, or thereabouts, when the first attempt is made to translate dreams into reality. - Heywood Broun. What a great quote that is. We all know people who, shortly after high school or college, turn into pessimists. I believe it is because they had trouble turning their dreams into reality. They had great imaginings, but it didn’t come true when they wanted. They had great ideas, but procrastination set in. They had big goals, but the road blocks seemed bigger. The invariable mark of a dream is to see it come true. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
In order for us to see our dreams come true, we first need to know with absolute clarity what those dreams are. Don’t have fuzzy dreams. Fuzzy dreams produce fuzzy realities. If we are going to live the lives of our dreams, we must be clear about what we want. We must also take action. Not any action, but continual action. We must constantly strive to improve ourselves and our lives if we are going to experience our dreams. Very few people become successful without taking constant and continual action. We also need to endure. Many people quit when they run into roadblocks. We need to endure. We need to persist. One of the greatest feelings in the world is living a dream even though an obstacle was firmly planted in our way.
I hope you live the life of your dreams despite the obstacles in your way. Don’t become pessimistic just because you aren’t as successful as you desire. Sometimes we just need more action. What action can you take today? Sometimes we just need more endurance. How can you endure what you are facing today? How can you develop more resilience in your life today? Life isn’t about waiting until the someday that will never come. Life is about taking action today. Life is about enduring today. Life is about dreaming about the future while taking daily action in order to make those dreams come true. See the life of your dreams before you live it. Take action today to achieve those dreams. Endure through the obstacles on the way to your dreams. Do these things and you will truly live an extraordinary life!
