Live with your dreams. Think about your dreams every day. Work hard and smart to make your dreams come true. Don’t just dream, but make it happen. Believe in your dreams. Don’t let people kill your dreams. If you want your dreams to come true, you must nurture them. You must feed them.

No matter how scary, always follow your dream. It is not enough to talk about your dream. You must work to make it happen. Dreaming is not enough. It is not enough. It is not good for you. It is not good for your family. It is not good for the world. It yields nothing. It brings nothing. It changes nothing. You must act. You must work.

According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, “To live without duties is obscene.” To live your life well is to pursue why you are here. If you don’t know what you want to do with yourself, ask great people who can help you. But remember, “No one can help you if you are not ready to help yourself.” If you want people to help you find your purpose, you must first help yourself. If not, no one can do it for you. P.T. Barnum said, “The best kind of charity is to help those who are willing to help themselves.” To make your dreams happen, you must decide to make things work.

How To Get To Where You Need To Go

You don’t like where you are now. You don’t like what you are doing right now, right where you are. Don’t be scared to leave. Change is scary. It is going to cost you your comfort zone. And if you want to grow in your life, you must change yourself.

If what you are doing right now is not getting closer to where you want to go, change it. Don’t waste your time on it. You must trust yourself. In the words of Natalie Goldberg, “Trust in what you love, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.” Follow what you love to do. Don’t be scared to face it. Don’t talk yourself out of your own dream. Don’t permit people to talk you out of your dream. It is your dream, not theirs. To make it come true, to get to where you want to go, you must hold your dream, work on it, live it, nurture it, and maintain it. Do you trust yourself?
