Achieving your dreams is never easy. Sometimes, you have to overcome trials before you can finally say “I did it!” It’s just like a game where every level gets more difficult and you need to face the monster at the end of every stage to get the red flag and move forward to the next stage. That’s how it goes when we are pursuing our dreams– we take the first step, we move forward to the next level, we climb the mountain higher, we get wounded, we lose and we fight again.
But just like the game, from the very start we are already given extra lives so that when we fail or lose during our first attempt, we can still survive and continue the game. That’s how we should fight for our dreams. We are always given a second, even a third chance, and sometimes we can still accumulate more lives as we continue our journey. It’s just a matter of taking the opportunity to follow our dreams. It’s just a matter of what choice you will make– whether you continue or you give up. The choice is up to you.
Keep in mind that failure is never a defeat in itself and that the only defeat is REGRET. It’s okay to feel afraid to fail again; it’s normal, you’re only human. Even the bravest people feel afraid. But what’s important is that you don’t let fear hold you back, that you don’t let it limit yourself. Conquer your fears and know that you can do more than you can possibly imagine. You just have to take it one step at a time, and know that it doesn’t matter how long it will take– what matters is that you are not stepping backward.
You also have to know that you should never compare yourself to others. Their journey is different from yours. You have your own capabilities to make your dreams come true. And when you fail, do not give others the opportunity to bring you down. They do not know what you have gone through to get to where you are right now, and you don’t owe them any explanation. Just continue the journey and prove them that they are wrong!
So today, if you have a dream, be thankful because you have one– that means you know what you want to achieve in life. Be thankful as well because you have a chance to achieve that dream, so don’t waste any opportunity. Hold the vision, trust the process. Take the risk, endure any obstacle, fight for your dream.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
