Is this what you had in your mind when you once had a dream? It’s a single decision. Dreams don’t die.
If you ever have the chance to address a room full of 3rd graders, ask each of them to tell you their dreams. Children always have dreams. They always understand what it is they want to be. And they’ll tell you happily what those dreams are. Now what’s the difference between you, a forty or fifty or even sixty year old and one of those 3rd graders?
I will say the difference; Life happened!
Life always happens. Life brings with it joy and heartbreak, successes and failures, victories and defeats, setbacks and disappointments. You name it, Life will bring it. And for most of us we think there is nothing we can do about it. The reason we believe there is nothing we can do about it is because of how we manage the various curve balls Life throw at us. Do those struggles or successes violate you or motivate you to go harder and further to attain your dreams?
Good things can ruin your dreams. I will say it again. Great things kill your dreams. Marriage is great, yes? Across this planet women and men are considered”successful” if they’re married. It’s considered an accomplishment. And as wonderful as marriage is, it is a big dream killer. How many young ladies, full of enthusiasm and dreams have had that enthusiasm drained from her and her dreams evaporate like water vapor? Hold that thought about ethanol. Millions of girls are in what is deemed successful marriages but they aren’t living their dreams. Many men are in successful marriages and are not living their dreams.
How many have gotten very good, high paying jobs and when they look at their dreams they are but a distant memory. They’re like something in an alternate universe. Believe it or not, it is frequently the great things that keep us from being Great. When Life is going”great” we have a tendency to become complacent. We tend to shore through Life. A comfortable life is perhaps among the most destructive dream killers. You work, you get paid, you have the ability to pay your bills, but you have a bunch of debt. Manageable debt but you are able to make the payments on time and you live comfortably. Life is good. But it is NOT great.
It brings you joy. It gives you satisfaction. There are no regrets when you are living it. You living a excellent life isn’t on borrowed money. Your dreams will make way for you to live in your own terms, not according to the conditions set by the bank or credit card company.
Now, do not forget that vapor? You see when water dries up, it doesn’t mean it no longer exists. It simply exists in a different form. But, that form can change back into water. We see this all the time in nature. We have all heard about rain. Consider everything in your Life that has pushed your dreams aside. Whatever those events or things or experiences are, let us call them, Evaporation. This is the procedure in the water cycle which changes water molecules into vapor. However there is another process called Condensation. That’s the process that changes that vapor back into a liquid.
Your dreams don’t die. With the right energy, your dreams can be revived. It takes just a decision. It takes only you making up your mind that no matter what Life has thrown or will throw at you, you may pursue your dreams. You won’t ever attain that terrific life without a dream. It is the creative vehicle that takes you from a mediocre life to one of Greatness. But it takes a single choice. Not many. Just 1 decision. Change your Mind, and observe how Life unfolds around you. Dreams don’t die. So at forty, fifty, sixty or whatever your age, make up your mind you will pursue your own dreams. Stop looking at your age. When water is formed again from moisture, it’s not”old” water. In fact water we drink and bathe with has been in existence for centuries. Stop worrying about your age. Live the rest of your Life on your terms. Do so now! Austin Wildlife Removal
