"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." - Walt Disney
We all had a dream when we were small, didn't we? But how many of us have really followed our dreams and made them come true?
There're a couple of common reasons why people don't follow their dreams. Some blame it on reality, saying that their dreams are not down-to-earth and won't help them to make a living; some blame it on their capability, saying that they don't have enough time, energy or money to equip themselves with the skills needed. I have to be realistic too, that for some people, money could be a great restriction. Yet, not all of the people who choose not to follow their dreams have that limitation. What limits them is their fearful mind.
People are fear of the unknown and the uncertainty; they're fear of stepping out of their comfort zone and doing what others aren't doing. They want to make sure everything's right and ready. They want to be absolutely certain about everything first.
Recently I've visited an art exhibition held by a local institution. There were a lot of inspiring works painted by young artists. I was especially impressed by this one:
Inside all of those cans are the dreams this girl has over the time. One by one, the dreams just "expires" like canned goods as time passes. The girl's dreams have never come true, and she just looks at them expire. All her dreams have been lost and there's nothing she can do to chase back those times.
Are you storing your dreams somewhere but not doing anything about them? If your answer is yes, please dig them out before it's too late. You don't need to wait for the best condition to do what's right for you. If you keep waiting for the perfect time to do the thing you want to do, you may end up missing all the valuable chances.
Don’t wait. The time will never be just right. - Napoleon Hill
