Henry David Thoreau quotes:
“Do not give up on your dreams and aspirations. For if you do, you may exist but you have ceased to live”.
What a powerful quote!
I believe we have all dreamed and had hopes at one or many stages of our life. However, due to circumstances and life experiences, we may have let them go believing they can never come to pass or worse, that we are somehow undeserving of it. Some dream big, so big that it can be laughable and others dream modestly. I wonder if there are any benefits in dreaming small? Are our dreams not supposed to scare us?
We are responsible for steering our dreams in the right direction. We need to put in the hard graft – it will not happen any other way.
Perhaps we need to become more knowledgeable in the area we wish to work in, begin to network with like minded people or take up voluntary work. The list really is endless.
Are you willing to do what is required to fulfill your dreams and aspirations? It is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day running of our lives and lose sight of the bigger picture. The bigger picture is what keeps us moving forward when life seems bleak, when we are no longer fulfilled in our jobs, when we have outgrown relationships, when we see parts of our character that we know need to be changed.
A few questions for you to consider:
1. Where would you like to be in 10-15 years time?
2. What do you need to put in place today to be nearer to your dream tomorrow?
Take the plunge and put pen to paper – you never know where it may lead to.
