What is your dream? Have you defined it? So many times I talk with people who are just going through life, living lives that were designed for them or that they’re just living in to get by. They’ve been told “no” or other negative things all their lives so they’ve given up on the dreams that matter to them or excite them.
You deserves to live the life YOU want! All it takes is having the courage to follow your dreams. Sounds easy, right? We all know it’s not as easy as just “doing it” – here are a few tips to help you along your path.
Have a dream – we all have them, some have buried them or let them go for various reasons. Give yourself some time and create your dream, write it down and keep it near. Make sure you visualize every aspect of your dream.
Although Paul McCartney had a dream to sing, when he applied to join the choir of Liverpool cathedral he was turned down because they said he wasn’t good enough. He kept going and now everyone has heard him!
Make a plan – How are you going to get form where you are to where you want to go. Break it down into little pieces, into goals and milestones. Every step forward is a step in the right direction
Walt Disney had a plan for his theme park – he was turned down over 300 times, but he kept pursuing his dream and you know what happened – Disney is everywhere!
Columbia Pictures told Marilyn Monroe she wasn’t pretty enough or talented enough to be an actress. She took consistent action and kept pursuing her dream, her legend lives on.
Surround yourself with positive people – people who support you, people who have similar dreams, these are the people who will help you. They will provide the emotional support, encouragement and perhaps lessons that you need as you go after what you want.
A positive attitude and the courage to chase your dreams & goals will take you anywhere you want to go in life. Don’t expect other people to make things happen or for opportunities to just fall into your lap, make it happen. Don’t wait for it, chase it! Go after what you want in every aspect of life!!
Dream big and go get it!!
