I have a dream of starting and owning my own media company someday. Well, actually I have a lot of dreams, but this just being one of them.
I want to start a media company that focuses primarily on self-improvement – a company that helps others to overcome the challenges they are facing in life. One that tells a story and gives encouragement to all.
In this company, I want to work with people like me; survivors, warriors, individuals who have hit rock bottom, who have overcome endless internal challenges, and who are no living their best life yet. Above all else, I just want to work with those who want to help and inspire change.
How cool would this be?
Think of it as a television network or a YouTube channel dedicated to sharing stories and advice to help others. The best part is that it’s no bullshit. It’s straight-up quality advice from those who have once been in similar positions as the audience.
No Dream Is Too Big To Achieve
When I think about this dream of mine, I feel this sense of excitement. I could cry tears of happiness just thinking about the day this dream is going to come to fruition.
Some may think that this dream is silly and foolish. Others might think that this already exists or that it’s a waste to try and build something as big as I envision it out to be in my head. But to me, that’s the beauty of dreaming. There are no limitations. The only limitations are the ones that exist within our minds.
Think about these scenarios for a moment.
Before the Wright brothers conducted their first successful flight on December 17th, 1903, do you think many individuals at that time thought it would ever be possible to fly through the air hundreds of feet above the ground?
When Karl Benz developed the first gasoline-powered automobile in 1880, do you think that many individuals at that time thought there would be a day when the automobile would sit in the driveways of nearly every home? How about the fact that some of them run solely on electricity and are now self-driving?
How about when 21-year-old Philo Taylor Farnsworth invented the first electronic television in 1927. Do you think many at the time thought most households would one day have more than one? Or that they would be seen in color? Or that they would be high-definition and look as though you were actually witnessing something for yourself?
How about before any of these things. Think back to July 4th, 1776 when America gained its independence. Do you think that anybody living at the time thought a car, a plane, or a television would ever be possible?
Day in and day out, humans continue to evolve and create new realities. Why not make your dreams a reality too?
How Long Does It Take To Achieve Your Dreams?
The point is, there is no dream that is too big to achieve. Each and every single day, there are hundreds of thousands of individuals across the world who are taking steps towards achieving their dreams.
All of these individuals have one thing in common; they have no idea when these dreams are going to be fulfilled. They just have a vision that they believe in and are willing to work as long and hard as they need to in order to see that vision through.
That’s the thing about dreams. While there is no dream that is ever too big to achieve, none of us also know how long it’s going to take to see our dreams through. What might take one individual a month or a year to accomplish could take another individual a few years or a decade to achieve. We just simply never know. Everybody has different skills, different circumstances that they are dealing with in life, and different lives as a whole. There is no definitive time it’s going to take you to achieve your dreams.
This isn’t meant to discourage you in any way possible. Actually, it’s meant to encourage you. It’s meant to help you look within, look at what it is that you truly want – like so much so that you’re willing to fight for with all of your might, and then to go out and give your dreams everything you got.
You are going to encounter challenges and obstacles along the way. That’s just the nature of growth and learning what you don’t already know. But don’t let these challenges stop you. Learn from them, grow from them, and use them as a way to go from who you were yesterday into who you want to become tomorrow.
Act On Your Dreams
Nothing is ever going to come through unless you take action. Take action on your dreams right now!
I can’t tell you how many times I have sat on my dreams because I didn’t have the right story, I didn’t have the proper equipment, I didn’t have enough time, I could go on and on.
Guess what didn’t happen as a result?
I never got closer to achieving my dreams.
There is never a right time to get started on your dreams. There is always going to be something missing, something you are lacking, or something that could be better. As long as you continue to allow these different variables to stop you, you will never get closer to your dreams.
Act on your dreams. Start before you’re ready. Get your feet wet, gain experience, grow and try new things as you progress, and just get started. Getting started is the only proven way you are ever going to achieve anything in life.
What’s The Next Best Thing?
As always, ask yourself “What’s the next best thing that I can do?” You may not have the perfect answer, but taking that next step is always going to be better than holding off and waiting for that perfect answer to come to you.
