Never Give Up on Your Dreams

What are your dreams, your vision, what would you really like to achieve in this life? The first step is to know exactly what you want. Whatever your dream is, write it down and get focused. After you have done that, write out all the reasons WHY it’s important to achieve this dream. The next step is to list the benefits you will receive by achieving it. Then put together a plan of success; your dream now becomes a goal. After all, a goal is simply a dream with a plan.

Now the question is, how bad do you want it? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to make this dream happen? If you want to have true success, it’s going to take a 100% commitment. You must never look back and never give up, persistence and consistent work ethic are vital.

Pursuing your dreams comes along with many blessings and benefits, and I would like to give you some reasons why you should never give up on them. Every subject is part of success and you have to go through them in order to have your dreams come true.

1) Failure

Failure is part of success. Unfortunately, most people do not pursue their dreams because of fear of failure. But we have to fail in order to succeed, this is how we learn and grow.

Let me encourage you to read biographies of successful people. You will find every single one of them has experienced failure. Michael Jordan said it best, “I missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games, 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot… and missed. I failed over and over and over again in my life, that is why I succeed.”

If we can learn anything from all successful people, it would be to never give up on our dreams because we have fear of failure.

2) Persistence

The road to success is always under construction and I promise that you will go through difficulties, obstacles, and challenges. All of this is part of building your character.

Persistence is something that can only be learned through tough times. If we never fall down, we could never learn how to get back up. And every time we get back up, we become stronger and more capable of achieving our goals.

The word “quit“ should never come out of your mouth again, persist until you succeed.

3) Enjoy the journey

When you have big dreams, you are going to have small successes along the way. Make sure you celebrate your successes and celebrate life. By doing this, the small victories that you have help push you through to the next goal.

Before long, you will find that your dreams are coming to reality.

On the road to success, there are so many blessings; enjoy the ride.

4) Success is very close

What amazes me most is that so often people are on the verge of achieving their dreams and then they give up. If they only knew how close they really were!

Sometimes all it takes is one more phone call, one more week of determination and commitment, or just one more late night working on your passions.

No matter what, never give up. So often, people surrender far too soon. We truly can’t see what the future holds for us, but we can keep working daily to achieve our dreams.

5) We are setting an example

For those of you who have children or grandchildren, whether you realize it or not, they are watching you. You are setting an example. It’s up to you and it’s your choice to decide if that example is going to be good or bad.

Do we want our children to say that we gave up on our dreams or that we lived our life with a passion to achieve them? We can set the example for future generations—what a great legacy to leave behind!

You have a dream, how bad do you want it? Going forward, make a 100% commitment that you are never looking back and you are going to make those dreams come true.

Have a super fantastic week!
