Successful or not, we’ve all got one thing in common in life: there’s something we’re not happy with. There’s something we regret. There is something between us and our dreams. Then how can it be that some people are "living the dream?"
I think it’s as easy as moving past the regrets – find a way around, over, or through them, and get your dream. Who’s living your life? Who gets to decide what’s possible, and what’s impossible? It’s YOU! At the end of the day, there are few things that are actually impossible; just things that require a lot of sacrifice to attain. You want A? You’re going to have to do B, C, D, and E first. Are you up to the task? How badly do you want it?
Stop finding reasons that your dreams won’t work, and instead start finding ways in which they will. If you get stuck, don’t get discouraged; just go into a holding pattern. The way forward will emerge soon enough. There’s always a way forward. Want to accelerate your progress toward your dream? Start listening to people who are already living your dream. They weren’t born into that lifestyle! They were just like you once, and had to find a way into their dream. Stop listening to people who tell you it can’t be done.
There’s an old expression – "Whether you believe you can do it, or believe you can’t, you’re right." There’s no faster way to destroy a dream than to live in the mode of fear and regret. Cast those voices out and believe in your dream. You’ll be surprised how many opportunities you’ll find to advance it. Live life today. Don’t wait to start living – enjoy life now. Celebrate the moment. Anticipate the future. Dream.
