Dreamers are often referred to as romantic, impractical people but I call them beautiful human beings because dreamers change the world.
GUEST EDITOR Kerrie Friend
A dreamer feels a burning in their heart and reaches beyond their comfort zone to believe what may seem impossible to everyone else and make it possible. I’m not talking about wishers they only talk I’m talking about dreamers, the ones that do!
A dreamer accepts that failure is a part of the process to a dream fulfilled and while sometimes incredibly slow continues to see the dream in their heart and never let’s go. Dreamers have purpose, passion, perseverance and tenacity.
Is it time you got your dream going again? Have you let go of yours? That still small voice within you urging you on towards your dream is there for a reason. Reignite it.
Waiting for your dream to fall into your lap never happens, that’s a wish. Dreams require effort and work. You’ll need determination (the act of making or arriving at a decision, being resolute or firm in purpose). Be decisive about your dreams and plans, set mini-goals along the way to fulfilment.
Trust what’s in your heart and go for it. Expect the best and enjoy the journey towards your dream. And don’t be fooled that if it gets too hard it’s not right. Sometimes we’ve got to learn something that’s imperative for our future success. Don’t try and understand everything about your trial because later on it more than likely will make sense.
Most people living their dream will tell you they put their plan into action but things happened very differently from how they first set out. Yet when they look back they realize it was for the best.
All dreams require action, listen to your heart and don’t quit. Believe in yourself and your dream but don’t think just because you have a dream everyone else will support it. Unfortunately, some of our biggest deserters can be our family and friends.
Most successful people I know are so thankful they listened to their heart and not the opinion of others. Our dreams will always be tested for authenticity but if we know that we know that we know what our dream is nothing or no one will deter us.
Here are some helpful tips to keep your dreams going.
- Take time to write them out with specific time frames for achievement.
- Include mini-goals, keep your home clean, keep a to-do list that assists your dream (daily/ weekly/ monthly/yearly).
- Write a budget to support your dream, exercise, and reward your victories along the way.
- Keep a smile on your face; don’t forsake still living your life while you chase your dream and finally encourage others dreams along the way to fulfilling yours.
- Helping others always helps our soul prosper.
- Your dream matters, not just to you but to the world.
