“A man who is without a dream is like a ship without a rudder—a waif, a nothing, a no man.” This is one of the best quotations of Thomas Carlyle, a Scottish philosopher. Dreams stand as man’s goals in life. It serves as his purpose and inspires him to work hard and go through the challenges that life brings. Your dream may be the same or different with the others. To be rich, to visit a particular place, to have a wonderful home, a loving partner or a happy family… these are usually the greatest dreams of the many. If you want to make your dreams come true, you cannot get it through a genie in the lamp. It’s a myth. Here are the following tips for you to achieve it:
1. Dream a possible dream
Make sure that what you’re dreams can be achieved. It should be specific and can be projected. In what way it could be achieved? Is it through investing in a business or by pursuing a career?
Estimate a range of time that you could achieve it like 10 years from now… and how capable are you making it happen?
2. Work for it
The truth about dreams is that you cannot have it instantly like in a one snap.
It’s about taking a step to make it happen. Strive hard and exert double effort if necessary. Be committed to working for it. Always be patient and persistent.
3. Be motivated by it
Let it be the reason to work with gladness. Sometimes the way to achieve it is full of discouragement. Don’t get disappointed. Let it be the source of your strength. When there are times that you feel giving up, remind yourself that you’re not going to make it if you will fall back.
4. Learn to sacrifice
Sometimes, the way to get to the top needs sacrifices. It’s the one ingredient of success. Learning to sacrifice also develops characters to make you a good person. It makes you humble and makes you fully understand what’s all about being successful. You will never appreciate the beauty of achieving your dreams without sacrifices.
5. Always believe in it
Never doubt your ability to make your way to the top. Be optimistic. If you will always entertain negative thoughts and disbelief, the more you see it as an impossible dream.
6. Do it the right way
Some people prefer to do it in a wicked way seeing that they don’t have any chances of making it. Others want to do it in an instant. They would even cheat, rely on the sweepstakes, risk their lives or to kill.
Perhaps doing it could perfectly get what you want. But always remember that you reap what you sow. Never trade your values. You always have the options. Choose what is right.
To achieve your dreams truly needs a lot of investment… your time, money, effort and talents. Though it seems so hard to come true, but nothing will be achieved without trying.
