Most of us have been told to follow our dreams at one time or another, but most of us never actually do it, not seriously anyway. For so many of us, dreams are just that – dreams – they aren’t things we can actually achieve, not when we have kids to look after, work to do, chores and so on and so on. The thing is, it doesn’t matter how much money you have or how amazing your home is if you’re not truly happy with your life, and how can you be truly happy if you don’t follow your dreams? You can’t, right?
Need to be convinced? Check out these very important reasons why you should start following your dream right now.
Dreams Make Life Worth Living
Dreams are the things that you really want in life, which means they are the things that keep you going, that give you meaning and make you truly happy to be alive. When you follow your dreams you greet each new morning with enthusiasm instead of wishing you could hide in bed all day, without our dreams, we aren’t really, fully living.
Dreams Can Be a Source of Success
A lot of people think that following their dreams means giving up on ever being financially secure or even wealthy, and definitely not having nice things, especially if their dream isn’t to reach the top of the corporate ladder or something equally sensible, but you know what? It is possible to follow your dreams and make a decent living along the way, plenty of people, people like Elon Musk, Steve Jobs and Richard Branson have done just that, so why not you? Yes, it won’t always be easy and it may not work out in the end, but maybe it will and isn’t it worth finding out?
Dreams Can Help You to Inspire Others
Being an inspiration to others is a very worthy thing to be, and following your dreams is one of the best ways you could ever possibly inspire people. You will inspire them to think bigger, think about what they truly want and go after what really matters to them. What could be better than that?
Dreams Can Make You Happy
Doing what you love, whether it be taking singing classes so you can appear in Broadway shows, caring for sick and abandoned animals or training as a life coach so you can help other people, is a good way of ensuring that your working life is as stress-free and joyful as possible. When you are doing exactly what you want to do in the way you want to do it, the days pass quickly and happily and you are far less likely to suffer from stress, anxiety or situational depression.
Dreams are a Once Time Thing
You only live once (probably) so it makes sense to do what you want to do, to follow your passion and spend every day grateful for your lifestyle, doesn’t it? Following your dreams will help you to do exactly that and it’s unlikely you’ll ever regret doing so!
You in? Make those dreams come true!
