Why Dreams Are Lost

When we were little, we all had a lot of dreams and visions. We dreamed of doing great things in life and going a lot of places. Some of us dreamed of becoming successful business men/women, some dreamed of becoming musicians, some dreamed of becoming models, fashion designers and many other things.

The sad truth is that a lot of people that have such wild dreams never get to see those dreams come into actualization. This is because when people get dreams and new ideas of things to achieve, they just sit down hoping and wishing that it would someday come to pass without making any physical effort to make it happen.

I hear a lot of people say everyday of how they want to do this and that, how they want to be so successful and all; but majority of them just say it and wish it and it ends there. They don’t actually sit down to think of the steps that can be taken to see that their dream comes to pass.

When you have a dream about something you want to achieve in the future, the only way it can come to pass is if you stand up and put in the effort and work towards achieving that goal. Meet people that have experience or knowledge on the sphere you’re trying to pursue and get advice from them. Write down what you want to achieve and think out strategic ways and tasks to attain your goal. Talk to knowledgeable people about it, make research on it. Deliberately seek the company of people that will push you to pursue your dreams. Don't listen to negative thoughts and words from people.

Don’t just sit around praying and hoping that God will somehow make a way. Don’t go around with that mindset of “If it is God’s will then He will make it happen”. It won’t happen like magic, you have to put in effort and work hard for it.

Some people who have actually sat down and sketched a plan still end up achieving nothing because they think they don’t have the resources to start up something (like a business). The truth is that every successful business man/woman you hear of today was once a small business owner. You don’t have to start out with a very huge capital, you could start with something small and then grow and expand from there.  There is no shortcut to success, you have to put in effort and work and pass through process in order to get there.

Don't be scared of failure. Failure is just another stepping stone to success.

  1. The only way dreams can come true is when you can predict the future...but no one can, so we have to take life one step at a time. Though I agree that we have to show working to achieve our dreams - Walter
