As a child we dream……great dreams, dreams of fantasy and imagination of wonderful lands, strange creatures and amazing adventures. We can be anything we want and create a world where anything is possible.
A tiny pebble can be a magnificent jewel, a tree can be a castle where we fight off the onslaught from the ogre kings dragons.
There are no boundaries. Our imagination is free to create our reality for that moment and be totally happy in the world we have created.
As we grow our dreams and aspirations change but do not have to be less great. Dreams are beautiful. They motivate us, inspire us, move us to achieve the things in life which are important to us. O.k we may not be off fighting dragons but you can still dream as big as you want too. The bigger the better. Only by having the dream can you strive to achieve it and make it into your reality.
The saddest thing is when you are constantly told “it’s impossible” or “you’ll never be able to do that”.
The belief we held as children, that anything is possible, is slowly eroded away, replaced by limiting beliefs and the acceptance that in fact very little is possible to the majority of us. We have a path that we have to take because everyone thinks it’s the sensible and most stable way to go. Dreams are just for children or losers who never get anywhere. Well take heart, this is simply not true.
One of the most famous quotes of all times by Walt Disney “If you can dream it, you can do it” is not just a throw away comment to be scoffed at and derided.
A dream is like a bonfire. Ignite it, feed it and watch it grow to a thing of magnificent splendor, starve it or even worse throw a bucket of cold water on it and watch it fizzle out until there is nothing left but ashes.
To achieve your dream you first have to have it. It doesn’t matter what it is. It could be anything from being the best mom in the world to being a marine conservationist. It’s your dream and it’s what will give you pleasure. It is a commonly known fact that if you are happy you are more likely to make those around you happy too.
So if life has chipped away at you and your dreams have been dulled or even dismissed, here’s your chance to rekindle them. Give it a go, even just thinking about them will make you smile. Let that feeling back in, Start now and your path to achieving them will have begun.
