We all have dreams, but how often do we make them come true?
Many of us, when young, have great dreams. We do not allow circumstances to limit how far we dream. We feel enthusiastic, ready to conquer the world.
However, as we grow a little older, and after hitting obstacles and failures, we start to stop believing in us, and lose our enthusiasm, faith and ambition. We settle into mediocre life, plod on, and we either forget our dreams, or they become just vague, powerless wishes.
How many times have people told you that you cannot succeed?
How many times have people laughed at your dreams and tried to discourage you? Probably many times.
If you give up on your dreams, you might not be happy and often complain about your life and your environment. You might feel that life could be different if you did not give up.
If you give up on your dreams, you will not live the unique life you wanted when you were younger.
If children are allowed to dream, grown up people can dream too, no matter what other people say.
If you believe that you can succeed, and do not listen to anyone who says otherwise, with persistence, discipline and faith in yourself you can reach far.
Do not Give up on Your Dreams
It is never too late to start dreaming again and following your dreams.
There is one more thing to be said. If you really want to achieve something, you need also to be unique. Do not try to be someone else. Be unique and people will notice you. If you do the same things other people do, you might be successful, but probably not on a big scale.
To be successful on a grand scale and be noticed, you need to be yourself, be unique, and be different from others.
Learn from others. That’s would be most helpful, but you don’t need to follow their steps and become “copycat”.
Do not be afraid to be unique.
Do not be afraid to be different.
When you are unique in what you do, whether it is writing a book, building a business, becoming an actor, or becoming an athlete, you will become a leader, not a follower.
Below, you will find a video I found on YouTube, in which Will Smith participates. The video talks about the topic of this post – motivation and following your dreams. Its title is “Dream Motivational Video”. I believe you will like it.
