C.S. Lewis once said, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” Let’s admit it. We all dream. Some dream more often more than others, some dreams are more exotic than others and some are more vocal about their dreams than others. But in the end, the truth stands testament to the fact that we dream.
And no matter how surreal the dream is, we all dream about how (one day) our dreams will come true. (For all those who are in denial, all I have to say is this: You have to admit it guys, we all dreamt about reaching the stars when we were five.)
So, read on to find out how you can make these dreams your reality.
No matter what people tell me about magic wands, tantric mantras, the location of planets and the power of money, I refuse to believe in these. In other words, dreams don’t come true because of these mystical systems of fate. Dreams come true because of a determined heart, persevering mind and a stubborn soul. Dreams don’t come true just because some people were absolute masters at what they were doing. Rather, dreams come true because some people refuse to take no for an answer. Trust me, the easiest way to make your dreams a reality is to not lose hope, whatever life throws your ways.
So, you’re living a mundane life, where every day is exactly the same as the one before. You go through your routine like a machine, sans thoughts, sans dreams, sans emotions. And you tell me that you don’t have enough time to work on your dreams right now. You’re slogging right now so that you have the time to pursue your dream later. You’ve not given up on your dream; you’re just waiting for the right time to run towards your dream. Well, I’m telling you, it is utter rubbish. If you keep waiting for the right time to start working on your dream, you will never be able to achieve it.
And do you know what that means?
That just means you never wanted that dream to become a reality in the first place. Believe me, there will never be a moment as perfect as this moment, right now, to start working on your dreams.
If you’re one of those who says “I don’t have time to follow my passions right now”, let me tell you this: If you really want that dream very badly, there will be time to work on it. You might have to sacrifice your sleep for the first few days, but gradually your schedule will wrap itself around this dream. And what’s more, you will get so used to it that you won’t be able to survive for even a day without taking a step towards your dreams.
#3. Grab every opportunity
I know you must have had the opportunity of reading at least a hundred quotes on ‘grabbing every opportunity’, reader. So, I won’t offer you fancy words that will find their way on your wall but won’t stay in your mind. Let’s keep it simple.
You have to grab every opportunity that you get. There might be times when it will seem wise to let an opportunity go because it is miles away from the path to your dream. But you never know what will happen in future. That opportunity might leave you with a skill that would give you a boost towards your dream. Or you might just set your sights on a different dream.
At the end of the day, you will have the satisfaction of having at least done something. It doesn’t matter if you succeed or not.
In fact, I believe everyone should royally mess up an opportunity they were dying for at least once. If you mess up once, the unknown fear of making a fool of yourself will vanish and you will be able to take bigger risks, which would lead to bigger successes. And if you don’t gain anything at all, you will in the least have a story to tell your grandchildren.
Whatever you do or you don’t, please dream. Dreams give you the power to conquer the world. And, believe me, you won’t be able to achieve your dream unless you think about it every moment, in every decision and in every thought. Make your dream YOUR LIFE and see how everything will fall into place.
