You may feel lost now, but with a little encouragement, you’ll be ready to chase your dreams.
Throughout our lives, we all have dreams. Whether our dreams and goals are something as small as getting that limited-time pastry at the shop down the street, or as big and lofty as starting an international business, there’s always something we want to achieve.
People and their dreams make the world go ‘round after all. Where would we be without the invention of the wheel, or Tim Berners-Lee, the guy who came up with the World Wide Web?
But, a lot of times, our dreams seem unrealistic, or we’re surrounded by people telling us that our dreams or our goals are impossible to achieve. I’m sure you’ve heard someone say “that will never work” or “get your head out of the clouds.” I know I’ve been told that one way or the other and it’s pretty discouraging.
You never want to truly give up on your dreams. It almost feels like you’re giving up on a part of yourself when you do. But when everyone around you keeps telling you that you can’t, it becomes easy to just call it quits. You go back to your mundane life of the daily grind with no hope of a better future.
Alright, so that sounds pretty grim. However, a day comes when you rediscover that spark you thought you lost and now you want to make all your dreams come true again! But after having that old spark stomped on so much, you’ve kind of forgotten what your plans were and how you were going to find success. You feel lost and you wonder “did I really have a plan for this?”
There’s the old adage “if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything.” While that may be true, sometimes our minds alone can’t do all of the heavy lifting alone.
So, here are some nuggets of wisdom from some other minds, in the form of inspirational quotes and motivational words, that can help you go from lost and demotivated to dreamer and doer once again.
