Whether you want to be a rock star, a mom with a large family, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company or live on a farm and grow your own food… it’s your dream. You get to decide what your dreams are and whether you want to pursue them or admire them from afar.
Sometimes life gets in the way of our dreams and they don’t happen in the time frame that we’d prefer. Other times there are people in our lives that may not be supportive what we want to do with our lives. What you need to remember is that this your dream… not someone else’s. While it would be nice to be supported by family and friends it should not be a necessity for you.
The funny thing about dreams is that the only one who can make them come alive is you. It is your effort, your dedication, your passion that makes them your reality. We’ve heard the stories about people who have triumphed against all odds. They did so because there were determined to live their dreams.
If you are waiting for someone to support you or to approve of your dream then you are not ready to realize your dream. Sure you may make some effort towards it however one negative comment or a failure of any type will have you abandoning the dream. Giving up is always the easy way out but in the long run it’s what causes the most regrets.
You’ll find the only things you regret are the things you didn’t do. ~Zachary Scott
It is your dream. No one can take it away from you but you. As you decide to pursue your dreams go for it with all of the passion and energy that you have. That is something that you will never regret!
