Not going after your dream is spiritual suicide.
It was fear that stopped me from taking my first steps.
It was fear that prevented me from committing to a path that I knew was going to be incredibly lonely but worthwhile. What I couldn’t say for a long time is “I can do that.” However, now I say “It’s possible.”
It’s possible to accomplish this dream.
It’s possible to be what I know I can be.
Will I have to change in order to accomplish this?
Yes. I will have to do things I have never done in order to become the man I want to be.
You can become comfortable. You can become stagnant. You heart can beat with less passion. But when this happens, expect normality.Expect nothing short of mediocrity.
If that’s where you want to live then fine…but for me, when I am looking into my heart and trying to find what I want to do with myself…there is no room for mediocrity.
It’s the small steps that climb mountains. It’s the daily efforts that are unseen by everyone that make all the difference in the world. Champions are made in the routine. The war is between you and yourself. Only you are responsible for the greatest amount of dedication you can bring forth. You have to give it your absolute all. You have to put your heart and soul towards it.
Bring forth your greatest asset – your spirit
Behind every fear is the person you want to be. But fear can paralyze us all. It can stop us from accomplishing what we ache to achieve. When fear is greater than our desire to see something succeed, we will never change. We will remain in tar. Your spirit will begin to flicker and soften.
Fear is a liar.
Fear will tell you no more than anything else in this world. Fear, the strongest type, comes from within. You can answer to it or you can be a slave to it. You can use it to motivate yourself or you can let it destroy your life drip by drip. Do not think for a second that the constant dripping of fear onto your dream is insignificant. An uncontrolled drip over time can put a hole in you.
It’s spiritual suicide to not go after the dream that has continued to remain strong in your mind despite the failures. You must answer the call. You must because you can. Without it, the dream will die with you and the world will never see what you could have truly offered it.
Take that dream out of your head and create it. Make it happen. You will be the happiest you have ever been.
