Be Passionate about your Dreams
Updated: Oct 11, 2019
The road you walk may be long and it may be hard so you have got to know what it is that you are walking for and what you want to walk toward. You have to start with passion for your dreams so that your passion can sustain you throughout the entire journey.
Along that path there will be challenges, I can guarantee that. People will say one thing and do another. They will pick you up, put you down and throw you about and wonder still, why you choose to walk that path alone. Lady Luck might be on your side one day and disappear the next; you just don’t know. You just don’t know what life will throw at you. It’s unpredictable, it’s constantly changing, it can be easy, it can be hard and it can be whatever you want it to be. Life doesn’t play fair. What you have to know and believe is that you can handle it and that you can rise to the challenges when they come. That you can learn, you can develop and that you can grow. You can keep on moving because you have your purpose and your passion to help you bring your dreams into realities.
Believe and understand that experiences are there to be learnt from; they are there to teach you and to help you to move forward. They are not there to be used as weapons against you. Don’t do that to yourself; don’t hurt yourself with the past. The past is a learning tool, a springboard for you to improve from. It can help you to see how far you have come.
We can get so consumed by the past that we forget to live in the moment. We forget to look for beauty in the moment. When you start to look for something beautiful, something positive then you find it. You find it because you are asking your mind to start looking out for it, to start noticing, and then when you find it, you can develop appreciation. Appreciation for that moment.
I wonder how many of us don’t notice the possibilities around us. We carry so much negative energy around us that it distorts the landscape, it distorts people. What if we began training ourselves to find one positive thing a day or one positive element in every situation? What if we increased it to two positive things a day and took a moment to exercise appreciation? How many of us would start to change our outlook on life, our approaches? What if we decided to see problems as challenges? As ways to exercise and stretch our resourceful natures, to develop as human beings into our best selves and therefore develop our dreams. What if we become strategists that only looked to the past for learning and propelled ourselves into the future thinking, we can handle it and we can handle it well? I think that we would have more solutions, more positivity, more optimism, more adventure in our spirit and more courage to develop our personal potential and bring our dreams into fruition.
