Do you have a dream?
We all have such questions in our mind. When people achieve success in their life, the only thing they say is I achieved because I dreamt! Yes, we need to have a passion or a dream to reach somewhere in life, but that doesn’t mean you dream to only succeed in life. We all face failures, we don’t succeed, we don’t become an actor or entrepreneur overnight. We need to keep in mind well in advance that dreams do have risks, challenges, hard work and perseverance. I was 8 years old when I started drawing thanks to my dad who was an amazing artist but could never pursue his passion for art! This is something I feel bad for many of us.. Even I couldn’t pursue my dream of being an artist but that doesn’t mean I will stop dreaming! If you have a dream don’t give up on it as you are the creator and sole authoritarian of your dreams, you can destroy it or pursue it. The benefit of a dream is to have a path which you can create to reach that destination/place/position/job that you have dreamt off! No one can guide you unless you have created a sketch of your dream in your mind and heart.
Dreams with priorities
Dreams come true if you focus on it but at the same time we shouldn’t forget our priorities. Sometimes we all tend to make such mistakes, we don’t realise that our dreams have a cost and it means sacrificing your time with family. For me my family means everything! Whether I do well in life or not I know I can count on my family for support. Never forget your close ones. The sole purpose of our dreams should be to see our close ones and family happy when we are busy pursuing it. Nothing in this world can replace your family and your close ones. We need to balance it out, pursue our dreams but at the same time keep ourselves free for our closed ones and people who are important in our life. Give them some time so that they understand what this dream means to you and how much you want them to be part of it! Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams!
Never Give up
When faced with this question of how can you achieve your dreams? I find it hard to explain as we all sought different paths to reach somewhere in life and we don’t think too much when life takes us in directions we least expect. Same way dreams have no precise path, direction or map to take us to the perfect place. We learn, we grow and we experience while we focus our hearts into what we need to achieve. Some of us fail to understand that dreams can lead us to failures if not pursued the right way. Now whats the right way, no one has a right or wrong way. We just believe in ourself and go ahead with what we are good at. Many people give up their dreams when they realise they are reaching no destination at some point but that’s where we all are missing out the point! We need to keep trying and working hard towards that light at the end of the tunnel. No matter what the circumstances or situations, never give up on your dreams as you will reach there even if you have to give up everything in your life! At least you did your best and that’s what matters the most.
Success isn’t always important
Success is what everyone expects once they start a new project or job that they have always dreamt off but that’s exactly where many of us are wrong. Success doesn’t always make us happy and content in our life, it just makes us greedy and unethical at some point. Our main focus should be to just do what we are good at and if success does come, then embrace it but don’t let it get to our heads as this is something we fail to realise. We definitely need to achieve but not depend on success as we can’t succeed all the time. We need to fail in order to succeed. Failure isn’t bad and one can only learn from failures. I have seen people give up the moment they fail, that’s not how you work upon your dreams. To have a dream means to learn from mistakes, to grow and to experience new things that come your way every single day!
While watching the Oscars today,the very classic example of dream come true was for Leonardo DiCaprio who won the best actor in a leading role. In America, winning an Oscar is every American Actor’s dream. But out of the million aspiring and talented actors, not everyone reach that podium to win an oscar. That unique is this award and the reason for this award to be honoured even today! Was Leonardo worthy of the award this time? Yes, very much! Having being nominated for every other year Leonardo never won an Oscar and today when he did the whole world bowed to him. He never gave up on working hard to achieve his dreams just because he didn’t win an oscar. He kept working hard and today when he looks back to his failure to get an oscar, he has no regrets but more respect as the world has seen his hard work and that’s something many of us need to realise and work on!
Dreams don’t have an expiry date
Our dreams don’t expire and don’t have an expiry date so don’t think your too young or to old to pursue it. I have seen people achieve their dreams at the age of 6 and even at age 80 or above. Never lose hope as we all have been there and done that but it’s how much you work towards your goals and finally achieve it. The feel good factor is always present when we work very hard and finally reach our goal!
Success and its enemies
Do we have enemies who stop us from dreaming success? Yes, we all do! Its common and since people who cant stand our success, tend to find ways to stop us. They spill negative comments and thoughts into our heads to ensure we don’t succeed. Dont let such get in your way. Firstly, be prepared for such people as they are such everywhere, don’t let them tell you how to go about with your life. Prepare yourself to face such things and you will find negativity at every step of your life or success. People who ignore and move on live more peacefully than those who let such affect them. We all learn from our enemies, we learn to be more confident, fearless and be positive.
Always remember, a dream can become a reality if you work hard towards making it possible! The more you dream the more you become closer to your goals. Hardwork and dedication plays an important role in achieving your dreams. Keep these in mind and im sure you will reach your dream destination very soon!
