Follow Your Dreams
Dreams are the fuel for your success. Without them there can never be any meaningful and lasting success in your life. Like a car engine without high-quality fuel you risk living a life that never quite gets started.
Behind every successful person there is as dream fulfilled. I have coached dozens of successful person and all have come to their success through achieving at least one of their dreams. It may have been a dream from their childhood or a dream that appeared later in their life, but there is always at least one dream linked to their achievements – something that motivated, drove, excited and captivated them. This dream becomes the goal that pushes you to believe in the impossible, to make unexpected life changes, to step out of your comfort zone and to take unimagined risks.
As adults we often choose to ignore or forget what we really love. e let ourselves be driven by other people’s guidance and expectations. I can speak from painful experience: at school I love Geography but followed others’ advice and studied Economics at university. I became an accountant rather than following my own career dreams. Have you made a similar choice in your life? Sometimes it is only with hindsight that you realise you were not following your own path.
Successful people never forget what they love to do and are passionate about. They quickly learn to follow their own path and to make the right choices, no matter how crazy or unpopular theyr might appear to others. Just look at Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, who quit studying at prestigious university to pursue his dreams.
