Follow Your Dreams

The future is not something we enter.
The future is something we create.

My dreams have always been the fuel for my success.  Without my dreams there could never have been any meaningful and lasting success in my life.  And, some say I have been very successful ~ depending on how you measure success.

I firmly believe that behind every successful person there is a dream fulfilled.  That all enlightened people have come to their enhanced state of happiness through achieving at least one of their dreams.  There must always be something in your life that motivates, drives, excites, and captivates you, otherwise you are not living, you are just existing.  Or, you may as well be living in a doorway on a sheet of cardboard.

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential….. these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.  ~  Confucius

My dreams became the goals that pushed me to believe in the impossible, to make interesting and unexpected changes in my life, to get out of my comfort zone and take unimagined risks.

Sometimes we choose to ignore or forget what it is that we really love, want, need, and desire.  We let ourselves be guided and driven by other people’s’ expectations.  We think my parents will never support my ideas, and, my wife will never allow me to do this…..

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, courage, and hard work.  Colin Powell

Really successful people never forget what they love to do, what they want, what they need, what they desire and lust after.  Fortunate men and women learn to follow their own path and make the right choices ~ no matter how crazy or unpopular those choices might appear to others, especially parents and partners.

Think about this; If money was not an issue, what kind of life and work would you choose to have.  Would you choose to live, or would you choose to just exist?  If you aim to be perfect, if you aim to please everyone all of the time, then you will be very disappointed.

Some say that behind every successful person there is a dream fulfilled.  And, that we should create plans, solutions, and strategies to achieve our wildest dreams.  All I know is that today I live an enlightened life that others don’t even dare to dream about.

Sometimes, the Magic happens.

  2. In my younger years I followed my dreams daily! Now that I’m older I have lost sight of them, however, once retirement comes look out!

    2. No reason to wait for retirement. Formulate them now and begin to watch them manifest.

      1. Already started! Went to Alaska 3 years ago and going to Hawaii in 2 more years! Just wish I could do it more often!

  3. Dreaming is a pinnacle of success only in conjunction with hard work. In fact it is the only thing that gives work a higher meaning. Unfortunately, I all to often see our children exposed to forced servitude without linking it to a dream. Great article, it made me think and motivated me for my day of dream fulfillment.

      1. I’ve been following quite a few healing folks and those with your experiences have given me so much to ponder on. And to change with. It is incredible to know mom’s illness is healing me.


  5. I’m a realist, but I never let ‘common sense’ hold me back from Adventure.

  6. Let’s not forget what Goya commented; Fantasy deserted by common sense creates horrible monsters; is she connected with it, and then she’s the mother of all Arts.
