“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”. –Harriet Tubman
Have you ever dreamed of accomplishing something that made you excited about life? Every time you think of the dream your heart starts to skip a beat or your mind starts to explode with ideas of what could be? Maybe you dream of changing the world, traveling all over the country, building your dream house or owning your own business one day. We all have dreams or have had dreams about the beautiful possibilities that can one day become reality, but what are we doing today to make that dream become reality? Sometimes we can be so consumed with life and responsibilities that we let the little dreamer part of ourselves die. The little dreamer part of ourselves that gets us excited to wake up in the morning, the little dreamer inside of us that causes us to not settle for less when we know we deserve so much more.
Dreaming is powerful. It’s gives us the opportunity to explore the possibilities of the future without costing us anything. Our dreams can become beautiful pictures of reality if we have the courage to pursue them. God created us with the ability to dream and He has given each of us a dream that will be the driving force we need to carry out His purposes for us in this world. Although dreaming is free, it does not come without the cost of hard work and sacrifice. In order to see our dreams become a reality we have to be willing to put in the work everyday. It’s easy to talk about the dreams we have but actually putting in the working and accomplishing the dream is where many people stay stuck.
I want to share with you some tips of why going after your dreams is important:
1. Dreams are a driving force
When we really began to pursue our dreams they become the driving force behind everything we do. There are times in life when we feel like giving up but when you think of the dreams in your heart and the possibilities of what could happen if you accomplish it, this will keep you going and motivated through life. Our dreams give us something greater to live for. Some of the dreams we have are not just about us but about impacting people. God uses the dreams that He places in our heart to impact the world around us in some way, shape or form. The dreams in us helps us to live our purpose.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” –Eleanor Roosevelt
2. Dreams keep you growing
The more we dream the more we grow, because we realize that in order to see our dream become reality we can’t stay the same or carry the same mindset. There are parts of our dreams that will be uncomfortable, there will be times where we have to step out, take risk, times where we’re misunderstood and feel like giving up. The process in reaching our dream will force us to grow. Have you ever made up a scenario in your mind of how something will happen, and it didn’t end up going the way you expected it to go? That’s what this process of growth and seeing our dreams come to past will look like.
3. Dreams create the reality we see
When we dream and really began to put in the work, we are changing our reality and our future. When we can consistently put in the work everyday and take things one step at a time everyday this is getting us one step closer to our dream. Overtime what we have been dreaming about begins to come true.
“Miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears.”
I just want to encourage you to go after your dreams, allow the dreamer in you to awaken. Life is to short to live in regret. You only get one life so take the risk and go after what you want. Thanks for reading!
