Instead of realizing their dreams, too many people never get started, too busy, instead listing all the reasons why they cannot achieve their dreams.
- I do not have enough money.
- I’m not talented.
- I do not have enough knowledge.
- I do not have enough experience.
- I have failed many times in the past.
- I’m not lucky.
- Who I am to dream of making such an impact.
- …and so on.
They defeat themselves before they even get started!
This is not what you deserve.
So, here are 10 reasons why YOU CAN achieve your dreams:
1. You can because it’s feels great!
“To be able to get out of bed and do what you love for the rest of the day is beyond words.” – John Schroeder
Your dream exists to turn your life into a masterpiece of joy and contribution. Doing what you love and living your life on your own terms are the best things you can do for yourself.
2. You can because it’s YOUR dream
Writer Richard Bach says, “You’re never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.”
The dream that is born inside your heart will never exist, if you do not have the power to make it come true. That’s a timeless truth.
Since you have thought about it, then you have an innate ability to achieve it.
It’s so unique that only you can make it true.
3. You can because it shapes your future
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
The world’s movers and shakers are those who believed in their dreams and persevered until they manifested what they have dreamt about.
Envision your dream and see by your heart’s eyes how it can change the world and have a huge impact on so many lives.
4. You can because you can land on the clouds
“I’m a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.” –Mike Tyson
When you work on your dreams, you will create your best life possible. Even if you cannot reach the stars, you will at least land on the clouds.
5. You can because you are hungry
“If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.” –Les Brown
Nothing will feed your hunger for making a difference more than pursuing your dream.
It will add meaning to your life and make your efforts worthwhile. It will make you wake up every morning with exhilaration and enthusiasm.
As Les Brown says, “You gotta be HUNGRY”
6. You can because you don’t want to die again
“When you cease to dream you cease to live.” –Malcolm Forbes
If you ignore the love and light in your heart, your soul will die of starvation.
Too many people are living, but very few are actually ALIVE!
Following a dream is the only way to start living. When you dream, you become alive. And I do not think you want to ignore your dream and die again.
7. You can because you are a pioneer
“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” –Oscar Wilde
You will face criticism, not because you are wrong, but because you are a pioneer.
People are not used to see dreamers who have crazy ideas to make the world a better place.
Most people are so stuck in the rut that they do not believe someone can get out, spread his/her wings and fly high in the sky.
8. You can because you deserve it
“Dreams are the touchstones of our character.” –Henry David Thoreau
You deserve to have a big dream and to become remarkable. If you do not leave your mark in the world, no one will remember you.
Living small makes you small and you are born to be great. You have a dream because you have a strong character that strives to live big and be big.
9. You can because there is a problem that only you can solve
“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.” –Edgar Cayce
You dream because you have a burning desire to solve a problem or fulfill a need that would make the world a better place.
You are our answer to our most difficult questions. You owe it to us and to the world.
10. You can because you’ve got the courage
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” –Walt Disney
All what your dream needs is courage that will nurture it and make it grow beyond all limitations. And you have this courage within you.
If you’re passionate about it, unleash it. No matter what you think or what other people think, YOU CAN.
You owe it to yourself and to the world.
It’s time to believe in the beauty of your dreams and show the world the promise and brilliance of your legacy.
