All Things Are Difficult Before They Are Easy

Thomas Fuller was right when he said, “All things are difficult before they are easy.” I have always believed that we can achieve our dreams. Whatever your dreams are, whatever you are trying really hard to achieve in your life, it is going to be difficult before it gets easy. Do not give up. Do not tell yourself that you can’t get it done. You can. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. Believe in your talent. Believe in your ability to get things done. Do not throw your dreams away. Put it in front of you. If you want to achieve your goals in your life, you must keep your dreams in your heart. You must sing it every day. You must live it every day. You must water it every day.

“If you want to achieve your dreams, you must keep them in your heart.”

If you ignore your dreams, they will ignore you. But if you nurture them, they will never leave you. It is important to nurture your dreams. It is not going to be easy. But if others can do it, you can do it. Your dreams are not impossible. They are possible. If your dreams are not happening right now, don’t give up. Because giving up your dream is not the solution to your situation. Nurture your dreams. If you want your dreams to die, ignore them. But if you want your dreams to live, you must nurture them. You must work them. You must live them. You must write them down. You must visit them every day. If not, they will not survive this hostile world we live in.

“It is your responsibility to make your dreams come true. If you don’t , who will?”

Your dreams will survive if you don’t ignore them. It is your responsibility to grow them. But you can’t grow your dreams if you don’t care for them. If you want them to survive, you have got to care for them. If you love your dreams, do not ignore them. No matter how hard, no matter how tough, stick with them. In the words of Sam Glenn, “You have to take responsibility for your life; if you don’t, who will?” Yes, he is right. You are responsible for making your dreams come true. If you don’t do it for yourself, who will? If you don’t take responsibility for your future, who will? If you don’t stick with your dreams, who will?

“Do not fail yourself.”

Are You Following Your Inner Moonlight?

Do you have a dream? What are you doing here on earth? What is your mission? Do you know where you are going? Do you know how you are going to get there?

If you have an inner moonlight, you must not hide it. You must nurture it. You must live it. You must follow it. You must work it. As Allen Ginsberg once said, “Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” If you want to pass your examination, you must follow your inner moonlight. You must do your own thing. Do not allow anything to stop you from following your inner moonlight. Yes, sometimes it is hard to do, but if you have the courage to follow it, you will accomplish your dreams.

“A purposeless life is a meaningless life. And a meaningless life is a fruitless life. And a fruitless life is a hopeless life.”

Remember, your dream is not going to happen by accident. If you want it to happen, you must do your part. You must take action. You must listen to yourself. You must not allow people to talk you out of your dream. It is your dream. To keep it, you must protect it from negative thoughts. Do not let negative thoughts stand in your way. Do not ignore yourself. You have what it takes to succeed in your life. You have what it takes to live a better life. But you have got to listen to your inner moonlight. You have got to listen to your inner self. Do not listen to other people who are trying to talk you out of your life.

Don’t listen to them. Do not listen to negative people. If you want to make your dream happen, you must follow the dream in your heart. It is there for a purpose. And you must follow that purpose to the gate of heaven. You must nurture it. You must not hide your purpose. Because a purposeless life is a meaningless life. And a meaningless life is a fruitless life. And a fruitless life is a hopeless life. Do not be scared. You can always change your life. The choice is yours.
