Simply Live Your Dream
The best part of life is without a doubt the fact that you can be anyone or anything that you want to be. You can do anything, you can achieve anything, and you can become whatever you envision yourself becoming. No mountain is too high, and no valley is too low. As long as you believe, you can achieve. Well, and one more thing… you need to live your dream.
Originally, I had wanted to title this post Dream Your Dream. As I started writing, something just didn’t feel right about only dreaming our dreams. After trying to force thoughts out, I realized what was missing. I realized that whatever it is that you want in life, you have to do more than just dream your dream. You have to do more than just admire the thoughts that are in your head, and you have to do more than just think about how much fun it would be if you ever achieved your dream. Instead of just dreaming your dream, you need to actually live your dream.
For some reason, you and I both love the idea of being comfortable. We dream all day long, plan out every little detail about how we are going to achieve our dreams, and admire those who have already succeeded. But ask yourself a question. What are you doing to actually live your dream? What actions are you taking to execute on your dreams and to turn them into a reality?
Dreams are fun to have, but they are just going to remain a constant thought in your head unless you actually start to execute on them. This means getting over you fears and eliminating all excuses.
Like I said, I am right there with you. We all make excuses for why we can’t achieve our dreams. Either we don’t have the time, we don’t have the money, or we don’t think that we have enough experience to achieve our own dream. We simply sell ourselves short without even starting.
As long as you allow yourself to make excuses, then your dreams will only remain dreams instead of becoming a reality. You are never going to achieve anything in life if you are going to make excuses or follow somebody else. The person that you are admiring right now, they are always going to have one step ahead of you. They are going to be ahead of you for as long as you sit here and contemplate the idea of achieving your dream instead of actually executing. Be different, be unique, and be yourself.
It is not worth it to sit back and wonder what your life could be like. It is not worth it to live a normal and predictable status quo life. You are meant to live for much more than just an image that you have envisioned in your mind. You are meant to live whatever life that you want to create for yourself, and nothing less.
Success is not an equation. Success is about execution. You can sit and try to plan our every little detail of how you are going to achieve your dream, but they will remain only a dream until you learn to execute. Change is uncomfortable, but learn to love it. If what you are doing right now is not getting you closer to your dreams, then you will never achieve them unless you are willing to change. Change your mindset, take risks in life, and eliminate every last excuse. You simply need to live your dream and focus on achieving them.
The time is now. It is time to take the leap in your life, challenge yourself, and live your dream. Embrace failure, learn from it, and let it help you grow into a better person than you already are. Your dreams have been dreams for far too long. It is time that they become a reality. You are capable of whatever it is that you dream of. So start now, live your dream, and never give up.
