I truly believe it’s so important to follow your dreams. We have dreams and aspirations for a reason. They are there to inspire us, to show us what can be possible if we desire them enough to aim for them and work for them.
We all have different ideas of what a fabulous and fulfilled life is and that’s the beauty of this world. We all have something unique to offer. The world is crying out for that something special that only you have. After all, life would be extremely boring if we were all the same.
I personally believe that you owe it to not only yourself, but also to everyone else to design a life you are completely in love with.
Just imagine if everybody decided to sit back and ignore their dreams. Our favourite songs wouldn’t exist, there wouldn’t be the incredible variety of shops available to us and our bookshelves would be empty. A world without all of those small businesses and Etsy and Not on the High Street.
The world would be a very boring and dull place. And no-one likes boring and dull. Life is so much better when there is an abundance of imagination and creativity.
Imagine if JK Rowling didn’t have the perseverance to continue with her dream of putting Harry Potter out into the world. She could have given in when so many publishing companies refused to publish her work, but she didn’t. Instead, she was determined that somehow, some way she would realise her dream. And that’s just what she did.
Imagine if Martin Luther King never spoke out about his dream? That incredible speech would never have been spoken and taken it’s rightful place in history.
Our dreams can impact everyone around us and you may not even begin to imagine their importance until you act on them. It may not be until you begin to fully realise your dreams that you understand the incredible effects they have on others around you, maybe even people you’ve never met before.
You have an unquestionable ability to inspire and motivate through your actions. It may take time for you to get there, a lot of hard work, determination and vision. But you WILL get there.
Sometimes, it’s just taking that first step to set you on the right path. By choosing a different path, one that really brings you alive, you can prove to everyone that it can be done. You can follow your dreams with all your heart until you can pin them down and accomplish things you didn’t think were possible.
Be the one who dares to shine. You will be so glad you did.
