Following your dreams isn’t an easy path, and it isn’t a path that everyone can take. It involves sacrifice, determination, patience, challenges, mistakes, failures, the ability to bounce back over and over, and a belief in yourself and your dreams that borders on obsessive.
According to Dictionary.com, a dream is:
- a succession of images, thoughts, or emotions passing through the mind during sleep.
- the sleeping state in which this occurs.
- an object seen in a dream.
- an involuntary vision occurring to a person when awake.
- a vision voluntarily indulged in while awake; daydream; reverie.
You must dare to dream before you can follow them.
Dreams may not necessarily be practical, but that doesn’t mean they can’t happen with the right strategy.
Your dreams have to call to you, and the calling may feel uncomfortable, but you find yourself unable to refuse.
Dreams aren’t the same as temptations and desires. Temptations are external things meant to satisfy an internal need, whereas dreams come from within you, pure and spontaneous, meant to fulfill a universal purpose.
Following your dreams isn’t a one time thing. It’s a path you walk every day as you look up at that star, seemingly out of reach, yet compelling you forward all the same.
So dream on.
