“Dreams at first seem impossible, then seem improbable, and finally, when we commit ourselves, become inevitable.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
When we’re growing up, we were often asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. Some might remember saying things like teacher, ballerina, doctor, firefighter, police officer, etc. As we got older we changed our minds to more down to earth dreams and goals. Ultimately, we settled on a choice as we started in our 20’s, even if we settle on nothing.
Some of us may set goals based on what we’re passionate about or what we’re talented at doing. This could be sports or the arts(music, writing, painting). To follow these goals is risky. It’s a crap shoot if we’re going to be successful or not. Others follow ambitious goals like being a doctor, lawyer, or big business owner, but we soon realize we’ve bitten off more than we can chew.
There’s another group of us who are either working towards a dream or were at our dream job and something happens that stops us in our tracks. This could be job loss, an accident or illness, or any number of things. When this happens we tend to lose faith in our dreams and goals. Eventually we give up.
No matter how old you are or what you’ve done(or not done) in life, you can always start over again with new dreams and goals. Maybe you need to finish high school or take a couple college classes. Maybe you need to (re)discover what you’re passionate about in life. Whatever you need to do to accomplish your goal or dream – do it.
Thought for the day: To close with a quote, “Hoping for the best, prepared for the worst, and unsurprised by anything in between.” ~ Maya Angelou
