If you could do what you most wanted, your deepest desire and be guaranteed success, what would that be?
Believe me, I know that sometimes life can be stressful, mundane and can become a matter of survival rather than living. Those big dreams that came so easily when we were kids get put away, labelled as unrealistic or too difficult to even think about. But here are 4 reasons to pull them out again and dust them off.
- When you know where you want to go, the path will appear
There is a scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade which is a great metaphor, where he needs to cross a chasm. He has step off a cliff, seemingly into thin air as there is a magic bridge which will only appear after he takes a leap of faith. Sometimes you have to start taking action and moving forward towards your goal before the path to it becomes clear. When you keep your goal in the forefront of your mind, (instead of buried and “written-off”) you will look for and notice the opportunities to move towards it instead of only seeing the barriers and the reasons not to try.
- If you don’t follow your passions, you probably won’t be the only one missing out.
If your dream involves connecting with or helping other people, anyone who would have benefited from what you have to offer will miss out if you don’t pursue it. Even a dream as seemingly “selfish” as wanting to own a beautiful home can affect other people. When you are happy, and in an environment which allows you to feel inspired and refreshed, that can only be a good thing for everyone you come into contact with.
- The journey may not be easy, but it will be amazing
Ever noticed that when you are doing something that you love, or working towards something that you feel passionate about, time flies and you can work for hours without feeling tired? When you do what you love, your energy multiplies and chances are you will connect with others on a whole new level, inspire people and change lives.
