Chase your dreams
Chase your dreams. What you do when you wake up is your choice!
When you wake up in the morning, you have two choices.
You can go back to sleep, or you can wake up and chase your dreams.
What do I mean by this?
You see, the challenge is that most people live their life in a trance.
I’m not talking about waking up in the morning. I’m talking about waking up from the trance because this is what I see that most people do.
It’s almost as most people have been hypnotized on who they are and who they aren’t. And it’s like they’re hypnotized on what they deserve to have and what they don’t deserve to have it.
It’s almost like people are hypnotized to what kind of a life is possible and what’s impossible.
Now remember this: what you believe to be true is true for you.
See, when I grew up, I was hypnotized to believe that making money was difficult, that a better life would take a lot of hard work.
I was hypnotized to believe that you have to get a good education, work hard, save money, and then when you turn 65, you can retire rich. I realized very quickly that none of this is true and you know what?
It’s also not our nature to do this. Think about it.
No baby is born thinking that it has to work for somebody else and absolutely no child grows up thinking, oh I need to become a great employee.
What do children say when you ask them who do you want to be when you grow up?
What do they say?
They say things like a firefighter, or an astronaut, or they say, you know what? I want to travel the world. I want to go to Australia or something like this.
I mean, talk to a kid that is maybe six to eight years old, right? Before they’re being hypnotized by school, and by others, and ask them what they want to become.
As children, we have all of these dreams but then others tell us, oh no. You can’t do this. And we carry this over as adults.
Often as adults, we have all these dreams.
We have dreams of building a family. Having these dreams of spending time with them. Having these dreams of traveling, of really enjoying life. Isn’t that the truth?
We have all of these great goals but then life happens, and when life happens, often we lose track of these long-term goals.
Then you look up in six weeks, or in six months, or in six years, and you have made no progress. None. You never moved and at some point, you think to yourself, maybe I can’t.
And so, you give up, let it fade, and you settle.
No! Don’t do that.
Embed that long-term goal in your mind.
Then think, write and talk about it. Hang it up on your wall. But most importantly, do something about it.
Do something about it every day. Do something that moves you towards that goal that keeps that goal alive, and inside, and in focus, and however small or insignificant that step might seem, take it.
Do it. Do that little piece. Keep that goal alive. Make it happen.
That goal isn’t going to achieve itself. It’s all on you.
Our gravestone has a day. A day when you were born and a day when you die, and there’s there is a dash in between, and that dash defines what your legacy is.
It’s time to wake up.
Wake up because when you wake up in the morning, you have these two choices.
You can go back to sleep and by sleep, I mean go back to your saddling in or you wake up and chase those dreams and this is what I want for you. Chase those dreams. Keep them alive.
Wake up. Live your life.
Is this helpful? A little bit of motivation here because I think this is also for me personally.
I like listening to motivational speeches and videos because sometimes we need it. Sometimes we can fall into this trend.
This is where I hope that this motivates you.
