Day (196) – Precious

%inspirational quotes

Right? Isn’t that right? What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?

We are brought up being told that we can do anything we want with our lives. Become an astronaut, a firefighter, a jet pilot, a professional baseball player. But over time, our dreams are stifled by those dream stoppers: the people who tell us no…but most importantly…ourselves.

We tell ourselves no we can’t all day. We can’t do this and we can’t do that. We shouldn’t do this and we should be playing it safe instead. When we were kids…we were superheroes. We were saving the world, we were dreaming big, we were jumping as high as we can. Over time…we began to think superheroes didn’t really exist, that the world was beyond saving, that dreams were expensive, and that touching the sky was impossible. None of these…are impossible.

The most successful people in the world believe in one thing: themselves. They believe that if they can put their mind to something, and play all of their  chips, they have given themselves a great opportunity to make a dream happen. We can be anything we want to be, but you have to be willing to make the sacrifices. You have to give to receive…it is simply a natural law. You have to let go…to grow.

Be a superhero today. For your kids, for your friends…but most importantly, yourself.


Keep the dreams alive,


Evan Sanders

    As I wrestle with trying to make my dream a reality or following a more ‘responsible’ path, this post has reminded me to hold on tight to my vision. My first reblog, and deservedly so! :)

    I love, love, love this post! I have been in a retreat this week about having the courage to be my authentic self and during the retreat I came to fully embrace a really important decision I made that was to allow me to live my life big from my soul. Without consciously knowing it I have been my own superhero for the last two years. I love thinking of myself in that way.

    “You have to let go…to grow”. So true, it’s just so difficult to know when you should let go. All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. ~Havelock Ellis

    These encouraging reminders are just what I need these days! And, I love the photograph!

    We do let our dreams fade and dimish as time goes by. But all we need is a little kick in the pants to be reminded of what we really want. We really can do anything we set our minds to, but it isn’t easy, and that is what bogs people down. You have to be able to DO THE WORK!

  13. April 19, 2012

    That’s exactly the point.

    “Keep the dreams alive”. Thanks or this reminder. Great blog.

    Love it!!! I’m putting my cape on right now.

    The biggest fear is to lose what we already have. When we think of living our dream it usually involves risk. And that risk often is losing what we already have. Because the pain of loss is greater than the reward of gain we stick to our safety zone. Courage is the way forward. We need to ask ourselves often: ‘In what ways am I being courageous?’ Love your post Evan. :)

    Good point today, Evan. Keep the faith!
