Dreams: don’t let fear stop you.

Dreams. They’re aspirations of accomplishments that we want to make throughout our lifetime. Personally, I think dreams are a gift. They are there to keep you moving forward in life. They’re there to keep you motivated. They’re something to look towards. They’re a hope for the future. Everyone has a dream, whether it’s almost impossible or in the near future.

“Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.”
— A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Dreams themselves have no limit. The brain’s imagination always astounds me with the dreams that it can make up for the body holding it.

However, I think that there is a catch to dreams. Dreams are endless, flightless, and infinite. My dreams make me feel like I’m attached to thousands of helium filled balloons being carried wherever the wind takes me. But just like a balloon, eventually the helium starts to escape, and they slowly make their way towards the ground once again.

I think it’s healthy to dream. If you don’t have a dream or have any aspirations in life, I honestly don’t know how you’re getting through life at all. If you don’t have one, I suggest you go and search the world for a dream. It makes you feel lighter than air.

I also think that when you’re dreaming, you have to also remember that you live in this reality, not a dream.

It’s one thing to dream, go after that dream, and achieve that dream. It’s another to continuously obsess over an unrealistic dream that will one day crush your dreams. You can’t spend a decade of your life thinking that one day this magnificent dream is going to just come true. This will break your heart. Nobody, especially me, wants your heart to break over a lost dream.

Think about it realistically. Is this dream plausible? Can you make this dream really happen? If you put in enough effort, will you achieve your goal? Are you willing to put in the blood, sweat, and tears that this dream is going to take from you?

Dreams are not something that are just handed to you. Sure, there are people out there who miraculously got what they wanted or dreamed just by being in the right place at the right time. However, this isn’t realistic. This happens to maybe one in a hundred million people.

To achieve your dream, you have to work for it. Probably for years before it can be accomplished.

I have dreams that I think about on a daily basis. I’ve dreamed about this one since my first memory as a child. My problem is, I have never gone after it. I’m not afraid to admit I’ve been to scared of failure. If I fail at my dream, what else is there to dream about?

The thing is, I have to realize that whether or not my dream becomes a success or not, there will always be another dream. You only have one life, don’t sit around thinking about the “what ifs” and put your life and dreams into action. I say, if you have a dream, go for it. If there is something holding you back, let go of it. Let yourself dream. Let yourself live out your dream in whatever way you deem necessary.

I’ve been struggling with my dream a lot lately, and this post was more of just a venting of my emotions towards my dream. However, I think that maybe it will motivate you to continue with yours.

Don’t let fear stop you from achieving your dream.
