Do you have a big dream that doesn’t let you sleep at night at times? Do you want to achieve that desire of yours that fuels your soul? If your answer to these two questions is a ‘YES’, and you have still not started going towards your dreams then you need to read this at least once. Twice or more if you like it. 🙂
What do we do when we have a burning desire to achieve something in life? Well, we just decide purposefully and start doing it! Yes, it’s that simple! We have to actually just start doing what we wish to do in life, especially when it is your art that is trying to find its way to come out in this world. You will have to take that FIRST STEP, because no one is going to take that for you and even if someone is there to push you, it is still going to be you who would have to take that step towards your dreams.
Start from wherever you are, start with whatever you have…
Do you know that when you desire to be someone or do something, the biggest resource that you need is YOU YOURSELF? The presence of that dream in your life is proof enough that it is supposed to become a part of your reality, and when you do not limit yourself in your mind regarding anything, you will get there. So many people worry about the resources and mostly on the absence of those and citing this as an excuse, they never start out. Start from wherever you are at this moment. If you have that dream, then you must be having something related to it around you or inside you that you can use at any given point of time. Search for it, identify it and use it to create what you want to create. Take baby steps if need be, but do initiate the process. You just need to give a movement, and then the momentum of your initial movement will take care of itself.
Perfection is an illusion, don’t let it come in between you and your dreams…
You must have heard this statement and let us tell you, perfection really is an illusion. What is perfect for you may not be perfect for someone else. Perfection is so subjective that you may work all your life and still not reach someone else’s level of perfection. And if this is the case, then why do we need to stop ourselves from taking the required steps that would take us closer to our dreams and desires. You will start and then you will be practicing your work or art daily, and that is how you will get better and even best. This is what your goal should be if excelling at something is what you need, but please do not stop yourself from being the best only because you are afraid that you are not perfect.
Fortune favors the bold!
Your luck, your destiny will only favor you when you will go after what you want. Being bold is what is needed to achieve anything in life. You cannot just sit there and sulk that you do not get what you want if you never get out of your bed. If you want to lose weight, you will have to get up and get that body moving, there is no other way. If you want to write a book, you would have to fill those pages with words that come out of your mind, heart, and soul; those pages are not going to magically get words onto them.
World-famous author Lewis Carroll had rightly said,
” In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.”
Before you end up doing that, is it not better that you take that chance when you still have the time and energy and everything right now. There is no better moment than the present moment to start something that is close to your heart. So friends, please get up and get going and get those dreams and make them your reality. All the very best to all of you. 🙂
