Can you really Live Your Dream?
Many doubt themselves and fear not accomplishing their Dream- they think if the people closest to me haven’t accomplished theirs, Can I really Live My Dream?
Who said that following your dreams would be easy? Hey, it has taken me 4 years to get to some parts of mine and I still have further to go! Why? Success is a journey and not a destination. Too often many get caught up in the whirlwind of “it’s supposed to happen for me right now”. They get discouraged, then quit and go back to what is easy. This becomes the quicksand they find themselves stuck in months and years down the road questioning themselves, “Can I really live my Dream”. There is a saying, “if you do what is easy your life will be hard and if you do what is hard your life will be easy”. I took this to heart and adopted it as part of my life’s philosophy. My life then became easier, not because it was easy but because I didn’t avoid the difficult changes or challenges. This helped me to become stronger over time.
Did I take some risks along the way? Yes! Did I get scared along the way? Yes! Did I face setbacks along the way? Of course! Achieving your dream is never easy! The difference between you and someone who rolls from one accomplishment to the next is called “active patience”. Yes, I am creating some new phrases. Why not, words are at our command. My dream has always been to be a world renowned influential speaker and voice of impact for life change and growth across the world, whether it be in business or personal.
That’s what Champion Up is all about. Creating change outside of the box of mediocrity. We push beyond our own set limitations. So, let’s get back to “active patience” that I mentioned earlier. It means that you are patient with delays, detours or even stops. This will happen as some changes are unpredictable. But you never have to turn your engine off. Catch my drift!! You stay active in the driver’s seat of your life and you keep “growing forward” even in the midst of challenges. This is how a vision or a Dream is achieved. Yes, you can really live your Dream.
I am going to challenge your thinking. Not everyone “deserves” to have their dream. Why? They have to earn it through action, action and action! They can’t sleep on it. This type of dream needs one to be awake and alert. Some people may try to convince you to be fearful about life, taking risks and of course going after a dream. These will be some of the closest people to you such as friends, relatives or spouses. Ignore their fears BECAUSE their fears are not yours. Each human has a brain of their own. Don’t waste yours letting others think for you! Do not be afraid of your dream even if someone else is afraid of theirs. You can really live your dream if you are willing to take action on it! It’s time to Champion Up to your dream and CHANGE it into a reality!
