Why you should Never Give up on your Dreams?
All of us has dreams. I’m not talking about wishful thinking or daydreaming. I’m talking about the real passion you have. Things you really care about in this world.
Are you the one who has given up on their dreams and resolved to mediocrity?
Truth is that all of us are capable to achieve our dreams. We are no different than others who has achieved their dreams. This world belongs to dreamers, The GIANT’s. Whatever we see in our surroundings it was someone’s dream at some point of time and they made it a reality. People who dreamed and followed, they are the one who achieved it.
Alexander Graham Bell saw a dream and created telephone.
Henry Ford saw a dream and created Ford car company.
There are millions of examples.You are no different in anyway.
Walt Disney said all dreams can come true if we have courage to pursue them. Most of the people give up on their dreams because of Fear- Fear of Failure or Fear of not coming out of comfort zone.
Here is my story
When i was around 12 years old I had a dream to do something of my own. Something where I can implement my ideas. didn’t have much ideas what i want to do, but something where i can contribute to others life. Problem was I never believed that I can do something because of conditioning other people do in our society.
After graduation, I joined an IT company, then another company and it goes on. After few years office became a routine, same project, same people etc. It felt like life has come to standstill, no enthusiasm, no energy and feeling of emptiness inside. I kept on dragging for few years but a time came when I said enough is enough. I realized that I’m not doing what I’m supposed to do, Start my own company. Within a year I planned to quit my job (was working with an MNC at that time) and then started following my dream. As there is a saying Journey is better than the destination. It’s true in my case. I’m enjoying every moment of it.
I will give you three compelling reasons why you should work towards your dreams.
- We got only ONE LIFE– I don’t believe in reincarnation. Do you ? 90% of the people die without achieving their dreams. They live in comfort zone and they die in comfort zone without unleashing their full potential. Anyway, life is a one-way journey, no one gets another chance.
- You will not be TRULY HAPPY– When we have a dream or a desire and if we don’t work towards achieving that dream we feel like a failure. Does it happen with you? then you can feel what I’m talking about.
- Your Dreams tells you about the real potential you have– Walt Disney also said if you can dream it you can achieve it. What it means is that if you are capable to dream something you have everything to achieve that dream.
I will ask you to perform a small exercise. Sit alone in a quiet place and close your eyes. Imagine you are on your deathbed and it’s your last day of your life. What kind of feeling you would have if you did not follow your dreams?
Feeling of regret or Feeling of Fulfillment?
If you don’t follow your dreams now, it will be too late if you realize it on your deathbed.
I urge you to ask this question again and again until you get the clarity trust me it will transform your life tremendously.
