“Follow your dreams.”
This is the classic line we hear from people when the topic of discussion is all about dreams and aspirations. On the contrary, we know for a fact that not everyone follows or heeds this kind of advice. Some would reason out all the hackneyed phrase they know. While others, they really haven’t figured out yet what they want in life.
Your utility bills pile up. Your boyfriend broke up with you. Then, you failed to advance in the interview round on the job you’re applying for. Bad and unfortunate things may happen to us every now and then, but that is a part and parcel of life. Despite the string of undesirable things that happen to us, one thing should remain. We need to hold on to what we are aspiring to have and become. We need to keep our dreams alive.
There are many good reasons why you should follow your dreams, and look for that silver lining behind the clouds of the doubt. If you came to a point that you are wallowing yourself in misery, the following points will help brighten up your perspective.
Here are some of the things that you can anticipate to happen if you will just hold on to your dream.
1. You Become An Inspiration to Others.
When you follow your dreams and aspirations in the hoping you will get there, despite the seeming odds, you inspire others to do just the same. Your faith will inspire them not to give up on their own dreams. If they failed at first or second attempts, you serve as the reason why they still need to give it another blow.
If came across an individual, who almost gave up on their dream, they will how persevering you are. They get motivated by it. They get inspired by you. If you will give them good counsel, they will pursue their aspirations still.
2. Pursuing Your Dreams Makes Your Life Worth Living.
If you keep the flame burning and follow your dreams, they will help you surmount your challenges, overcome hardships, and remove your obstacles. They will keep you focused and centered despite the manifold of adversities coming your way.
Dreams fuels up your zest for life. The difficulties and sticky points you will encounter in trying to reach them will, in the end, add color and meaning to everything. Without dreams and aspirations, our life will be gray and dull. You have no reason to labor yourself up. In that case, you are just existing but not living.
3. You Can Cross Paths With Other Who Shares the Same Dreams As You Have.
If you are so keen, motivated, burning with desire to follow your aspirations and the yearnings of your heart, you are likely to attract other individuals. These people share the same values and idealism that you have. For this reason, you are enlarging your network as make a connection to other like-minded individuals.
Before you even realize it, you would have surrounded yourself with achievers. By this measure, you’d be able to go further. Should a time come that it would be difficult for you to go on, the very same people will have your back on. They will give you that much-needed pat on the back and remind you of the core reasons why you need to get back on track.
4. Nobody Else Will Make Your Dreams Come True, Only You Can Do That.
Put this in mind whenever you feel discouraged. If you are not going to exert any effort to reach your goals and dreams, you will eventually find yourself doing it for someone else’s. There is the irony of that. In the first place, you initially determined what you want in life and formed a dream. Hence, who do you think should work things out so that your dream would become a reality, your mother? There is nobody else but you.
Labor yourself to get there if you need to. Find zest to keeping moving in that direction. When you know that you have that burning desire in you, it will fill you up no matter what the odds may throw your way.
5. It Is Your Ultimate Reason for Happiness
The journey to your dream may be full of hardships, sacrifices, and trials, much like everybody else’s. If you have identified your main reason why a dream of yours is indeed what you are yearning for, that means it is your ultimate happiness.
Getting your dreams and aspirations to become part of your reality will translate to your ultimate happiness and fulfillment. In the final analysis, this is what we all want. To be happy. Happiness is elusive only if you will not try to follow your dreams.
