We all have our own dreams but some grow to exceed them whilst others falter on the way. Why? For the most part our dreams are attainable. Unless you set them Everest high. Crazy stories have been heard! Finding a cure for cancer is possible, becoming a billionaire is not as odd as it used to be – it’s just a matter of putting in the work.
So I ask you, when are you going to grasp your dreams? Do you always want to work for someone else? Do you want to change the world? Do you want to be a leader? Whatever you want to be, the time to start is now! Rome wasn’t built over night and neither will your success but every brick you set brings you one step closer.
Embrace the risk and take a chance or risk watching life from the sidelines while others make something of this world.
Do you think that Michael Jordan never embraced risk or failed? Of course he embraced risk and of course he failed here and there, and that is why he was, and is, the greatest basketball player of all time – “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”
When the alarm clock goes off tomorrow do your really think Sir Richard Branson hits the snooze? No! Do you think he creates excuses to remain dormant? No! He analysis the situation and looks for solutions. His love for becoming a better person and creating a better world overrides everything else.
You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing and falling over.”
So the next time you try to come up with an excuse for not doing something, take this all into account, and understand that nothing is unachievable unless you make it be.
