Everyone on this planet has stuff they want to do and things they want to achieve.
“I want to be successful, have a good career and make loads of money”
“I want to travel the world and experience different cultures”
“I want more time to do the things I love, maybe even make some money from them”
We all have dreams and aspirations, things that we are someday going to achieve.
The problem with someday is that, just like tomorrow, it never comes.
We expect the chance of a promotion just because we work hard. We expect that we will someday have the money to travel. We expect that we will eventually have the time to work on our hobbies.
We live in a world where people are becoming more and more expectant, that one day the stars will align and that it will be easy to follow through on their dreams.
The truth is that you are entitled to nothing.
You are entitled to nothing.
It doesn’t matter how bad you want it to happen, how much you think you deserve it, or how long you’ve been waiting.
The only way you are going to realise those dreams is by acting, and acting NOW.
There will be things blocking your way and things you will need to adjust for, but that’s life. Go and learn what those things are and work on solving them, because life will NEVER throw you a bone and just magically let things happen.
The traffic lights of life will never all be green. There will always be things that aren’t perfect or ideal. But unless you disregard that and act on your dreams, that will never change.
Life favors the bold and if you don’t act, your dreams will follow you to the grave.
“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!” – Richard Branson
