5 Reasons to Never Give Up on Your Dreams
By Mr. Self-Development
You were born for a very specific reason! Everything that exists has a purpose. My laptop has a purpose, my car has a purpose, my socks have a purpose, my dog “Bananas” has a purpose, and more importantly you have a purpose.
You came to planet Earth to accomplish a specific mission. Maybe it’s to entertain, or to inspire, or to be an amazing parent, or to act, or to cook, or to paint, or to lead a country, or any other thing, but you came here for a specific reason. It would be an insult to your creator for you to leave this planet without fulfilling that mission.
Don’t settle for a life of quiet desperation, when you were born for greatness. Don’t live among the chickens, when your birthright is to soar like an eagle.
5 Reasons to Never Give Up on Your Dreams:
1. You Only Live Once
“When they back the ‘hearse’ up to the front door, they are not making a practice run.” – Van Crouch
You only get one bite at the apple; make sure you live your life with no regrets. Most people are living ‘way’ beneath their skills, talents, and abilities. They are so much more than what they have become.
It’s critical that you make the most of every minute. Die empty, having given all that you are to the world; because you only live once.
2. There’s No Point in Being Realistic
“Nothing great has ever been achieved by being realistic.” – Mr. Self-Development
Go after the impossible. Set your sights on what you want to accomplish and don’t relent until you arrive at your intended destination.
I like what Will Smith said, in terms of staying “focused” on your dream until you get there. He said, “having a ‘Plan B’ only distracts you from ‘Plan A’…” Commit to accomplish your dream, save realism for the average and the mundane. Don’t settle for less, when it’s possible for you to have the best.
“When you become certain that nothing is impossible for you, you will attain everything you desire.” – Wayne Dyer
3. You Have Time to Fulfill Your Dreams
I’ve told this story before, but I’ll tell it again…because I think it’s a good story…there was a guy who wanted to become a doctor, but was unwilling to go back to school for eight years. When asked by his friend why he wasn’t going to fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor he said, “I would love to become a doctor, but I would have to go back to school for eight years, and in eight years I’m going to be 40 years old! His wise friend responded, “Well, how old will you be in eight years if you don’t go back to school?”
The time is going to pass, let it pass with you accomplishing your dreams. Maybe it takes you a little longer to succeed. Maybe you’ll succeed at 90 when someone else succeeded at 9. Either way, when you’re 90 it won’t matter, as long as you succeeded.
4. You Deserve to be Happy and Successful
You will never be fulfilled until you do what you were created to do. There’s nothing like the joy of living your dream. If not you, then who? If not now, then when?
It will certainly take work, nothing worth achieving is ever easy, but it’s always worth it. As the famous quote goes, no journey is too great, when one finds what he seeks.
Dedicate your life to fulfilling your dream …in its entirety; your dream should include a happy family and amazing health.
5. You Will Eventually Succeed
“We can do anything we want to do, if we stick to it long enough.” Helen Keller
If you dedicate yourself to your dominant talents, you will eventually experience success. We’re all born a diamond in the rough; we just need to be uncovered. We get uncovered from focused and consistent action.
Consider lions; although natural born hunters, they must spend years practicing in order to become experts. It will probably take you many years and many long nights to succeed, but if you keep at it, and if you stay focused, you will eventually succeed.
