Follow your dreams. Who came up with that statement? Do you have any dreams? How can you follow them if you don’t know what they are? I have a statement on my wall near my computer that says, “A Person without a dream, never had a dream come true”. I love dreams. I know if I have one – I’ve got a much better chance at having it come true than if I don’t have one at all.
A few years ago, I told someone about my goals and dreams. She wasn’t a real close friend or anything, but she didn’t like my dreams. I’m not sure why she had a problem with what I wanted to accomplish but it wasn’t her idea for me and instead of cheering me on she actually got down on me about it. Needless to say I was disappointed. I already have doubts about myself creeping into my thoughts without having to worry about the doubts of others. Maybe she meant well but it sure wasn’t something I wanted to hear ever again, so when I found the above “dream” statement only a day later, it was almost as if it was an answer to prayer. I really needed it.
When you’re making progress toward a goal, it’s so important to surround yourself with positive people in your life. If you can, try to find time to spend your life with the ones that are friendly and kind. We all need support and people who are negative are not usually very supportive. Try to look for the good in everyone – surround yourself with positive happy people, and it will help you to succeed. The people you choose to associate with are so important.
When you get a clear vision of what you want to accomplish in life – start focusing on it. It doesn’t have to be big, and it doesn’t have to be something that is overwhelming. Telling people about your dreams is an important step, but be careful who you share your dreams with. Just pick something and learn about it, discover more about it and work your way toward it. For instance, if you’re interested in learning how to sing better, get a voice teacher. Start taking lessons, pick a song and sing it! Little by little you will get there. We all follow something – your dreams should be your choice! So find a dream you choose and follow it till you get there.
