Whatever you want to achieve in life…follow your dream.  Remember to think big, and you will be able to transform your life.

Nothing can stop, you but your own mind. Napoleon Hill, in his seminal work, Think and Grow Rich stated: “What the mind can conceive, it can achieve. ” It all starts with having the desire to make it happen.

Martin Luther King said, “I have a Dream” and he carried it on…

So, what is your contribution to this world?   How can you become a better person?  What is your dream?

Imagine it! Cherish it!  See it in your mind and feel it in your heart!

If you face obstacles, do not dismay. Do not allow people to discourage you.

Surround yourself with people who believe in you and your dream and cheer you up.

People who “coach” you through tough times, and cherish your wins. Even small win counts!

Achieving a dream is a process (just like the grieving process); it may take time, but it does not matter. Start taking the first step today.

Even if you are facing a crisis, a difficult time, or a loss. You can still dream for a better life because…there is life after a loss, and it is precious.

So, what do you need to follow your dream?  I have found these values to be of great help:

  • Desire (to make it happen!)
  • Believe in yourself
  • Perseverance
  • Self-discipline
  • Self-confidence
  • Having a high intention (something bigger than you)
  • Resilience during challenging times
  • Being optimistic
  • Being flexible
  • Being fearless

So, do not wait for better times to pursue your dream. The time is now!

Your life is finite, and you do not want to waste more time in dreaming what you wish you could be, do, or give.

Do it now with love, care, and…meaning.

Remember…Your Life has Meaning!
