So you’ve got a dream, congratulations, you’ve taken the first step.
The next step is understanding that the difference between a dream
and one reached is the effort taken in bringing it out of your head and
heart and into existence, in turning those 3am wishes into 24 hour
realities. This is where most of us falter you see. Society teaches us
very young that dreaming is a child’s game. From four to seventeen we’re taught that the world is our oyster, that our imagination’s the limit but the minute we’re thrust out into the real world our hopes are crushed and we’re sold off to the daily grind for the lowest price. This is an illusion. One conjured by a world that is so very frightened of an entire population that knows its individual value. Now that you have the knowledge the next step is to press on, work hard, treat your dream or goal like a 9 to 5 job because it is, and you should. Know that you will fail over and over but each misstep will be a lesson and, despite what you might think at first, one in the right direction. Yes, that’s the beauty of carving out your own path, your dream comes ever closer, even when you fail. So keep chasing, aim high or low it does not matter, what’s important is that you keep a dream at all. After all, it’s one of the most valuable possessions you can own in this world.
