We all have at least one dream for sure that we desperately want to accomplish in our life. Maybe it's to see our family restored, to become physically fit and look smart, break any lousy addiction, or perhaps to start our own business.
Life seems tasteless without a dream. It's just like playing the game without a purpose.
But will they come true just by dreaming?
Of course not. Talking about that dream won't take you far, only working will. You should have the intention to take a chance and chase your dream. But most people won't do that. They simply raise a family, earn a living, and then they die.
But people who run toward their dreams, life has a special kind of meaning for them. Life is unpredictable. It's full of surprises. Your dream can become a reality if you work on getting it done.
Unless you understand that you have got to push yourself, you are not going to make your dreams come true.
It's essential to realize that you are never going to feel like doing the things you need to do to have what you want.
You are always going to need to push yourself. No one else is coming to tell you to get up and work on your dreams. Sometimes, we feel like saying that we can't do that. It's beyond our limit. But what we have to keep saying is that it's possible that we can have our dreams.
The process of chasing your dreams.
You will get knocked down many times, chasing your dreams. You will feel like you don't have the strength to get back up.
After a colossal failure, it's widespread to feel like you don't have many tries left in you. You will feel like giving up is the only option. But you never know what lies just beyond failures. You never know when success is just around the corner.
When you have been knocked down by life, that when it's time to hit back, many people get hit by life chasing their dreams, but not all of them try to hit back. Many of them give up right then because it takes courage, confidence, and a healthy mindset to get back up when nobody believes in you.
If you have a weak mindset and you are afraid of taking risks, you'll never get far in life. You will never be able to achieve your dreams. Create a mindset that helps you moving even when others quit.
Dream big and never let small-minded people convince you that your goal is out of reach.
Haters will tell you to quit. Doubters will say to you that you can't do it. But it's only you who knows that a lion never backs down from the challenges it faces. A lion never stops chasing its prey until it catches it.
There's a lion inside all of us. But some people decide never to let that lion out. They keep that lion locked in its cage. Are you hungry for that dream? Are you willing to fight for that dream? Then let the lion out. Get hungry for your idea. You need to go and hunt your goal.
There is a quote that goes, 'everyone wants to eat, but few are willing to hunt.' Everyone wants to get their dream into a reality, but only a few of them are willing to put in the work required.
The world will change its opinion about you, the day you start living your dream. Life has a way of pushing our thoughts down. They can become buried under discouragement, past mistakes, and low self-esteem.
It's easy to settle for mediocrity even though we have all those potentials buried on the inside. There will always be forces trying to convince you to decide where you are. But you have to move every single day without limiting yourself.
There are going to be bad days when you start to believe and feel that there is no success in life for you. However, you need to realize something that bad days are there for a reason. They serve a purpose. If it weren't them, you would never know the value of real success.
Don't let the bad days limit your potential. If you want it, you should go get it. Dreams require sacrifices. You are not entitled to your goals. You have to bleed for them.
The price you will pay for not making your dreams come true is far higher than the one that you will pay to make it come true. It's not about today. It's all about living our dream lives in the future.
Why do most of the dreams get crushed?
There are 86,400 seconds in a day. The separator between people that win and lose is what we do with those seconds.
Do you want to win? Do you want to be a millionaire? You have to quit being so casual as Les Brown said,' if you go through life being relaxed, you will end up a casualty.' There's plenty of humans before you who have accomplished big things and are living their dream lives. They have done it. That is proof you can, too if you work hard for it.
You are more significant than your circumstances. Anything is possible in this beautiful world. But for this, you have to believe in yourself.
There are no boundaries or walls on your success or your potential. Only the limitations or restrictions you create is within your mind.
You are the most dangerous enemy to your dreams because only you can decide when to quit and give up on your goals. It will always test your patience. It's never going to be easy. If it were easy, everyone would do it. Learn that you will fail. You will fall, no matter how careful you are.
So fall in love with the process of becoming successful with every good and bad side.
Some of the steps to keep in mind while chasing your dreams.
1. Frame Your Dream.
We can't become what we can't envision. Visualize your dreams. Translate that visualization into words meaning write down that big dream wholeheartedly.
I know you may have heard about writing things down before, but the truth is most people just don't do it.
The research is conclusive on this. There is a study done by doctor Gail Matthews that clearly shows that you are 42% more likely to achieve your dreams if you write them down.
If you do so, you will become more apparent because the act of writing anything down requires a level of clarity. You get confident. You start to give more attention to your dreams when you write them down. So it's important to define your vision very precisely and clearly because clarity is the power that keeps you moving till you succeed.
2. Filter Opinions And Fend Off Negativity.
You have got to take responsibility for the energy that you allow in your life. You should fend off negativity as much as humanly possible.
Neuroscience has taught us that our brains continuously get shaped by our thoughts and experiences.
The negativity is the most toxic force on the planet. Do not listen to the opinions of the people who themselves stay negative all the time.
One of the major mistakes that people make consistently is that they habitually seek opinions from those people who are most likely to shut your dreams down.
So never do that. Always consider an excellent resource. As, if you want to climb Everest, would you ever take advice from someone who has no idea about it? No, of course not, instead, you would ask the person who has deep knowledge about the subject and has some experiences.
It's completely ok to listen to what other people in your life have to say but not if you abandon your intuition because of it.
3. Feed Yourself With Positive Examples.
Once you get out of a negative mindset, then you should start feeding your mind and surrounding with only positive stories.
Feed your mind with examples of people who have achieved the dreams that once sounded unrealistic for others.
So learn from those people who speak out and stand up for what they believe in and make changes happen.
So stay strong, have faith, and keep pushing yourself because on the other side of your deepest valley is your highest mountain. So keep climbing till you succeed.
