It is easy to keep dreaming about something you really want. The trick is to take action. Don’t get lost in your dreams.
Whether it is fear of your dream actually coming true or a lack of faith in yourself, if all you do is dream, nothing can be achieved. You must take action. When you don’t take action all you do is dream. You just continue to dream, until you eventually become lost in the dream itself.
Sometimes people are afraid that if they live their dream, there will be nothing left to look forward to. This is not true. When we realize our dream, not only is there joy in the achievement, there is joy in living our passion. More dreams will come. What happens is you begin to expand your vision.
If you are afraid that you will fail, and lack confidence in yourself, all I can say is try anyway. We all fail. That is how we learn. There is always someone we can talk to who has gone before us. They have made mistakes as well. Usually they will share what they learned with you.
I’m not sure why this surprises some people but it does. Someone who is truly, and fully living their passion, wants the same for others. They want others to feel the same satisfaction and joy that they do. It is a very few bunch who won’t share their learnings, the majority of people will.
This is not to be confused with your night time dreams, those when you sleep. These dreams are the vision you have or want for yourself. The dreams you have at night can be things you want to be sure, but they aren’t always the dreams about the life we want for ourselves. They are usually trying to help you deal with your struggles or other emotions.
Dreams for ourselves are powerful. These are the dreams, we turn into goals. They are messages from ourselves directly to us. These dreams highlight where our passion lies and where our joy can be found.
A dream of how you want, or should, live your life can pull at you continually until you have no choice but to respond to the call. So, dream away, just remember to take action. Whatever you do, don’t get lost in your dreams.
