Whatever It Takes - Following Your Dreams
When you have a vision for your life, a vision that consumes your thoughts and idle moments, you have to understand that it's bigger than you. That your purpose and gifts are supposed to be used in a specific way that will make the world and/or marketplace better. It doesn't matter if multiple people are doing what you aspire to do or a few, your gift will always make room for you. If you're sitting here reading this, and you're thinking to yourself what you aspire to do and ways you could do it, then DO IT. You're the only way standing in your way.
Oftentimes, we think that things have to be perfect to begin. That we have to have all of our ducks in a row to start and be succesful. But let me let you in on something, that's not true. Nothing will ever be perfect, and it will never be the right time. There's no such thing. You have to decide within yourself "the time" to do something. The longer you wait, the longer you postpone your happiness.
There are so many people who have huge dreams and aspirations, but very few people actually follow through and pursue them. Think of your hero or ideal. IF you know there history, you know that they had their share of struggles, rejections, no's, and closed doors. You know that it wasn't always easy and that they had to overcome things and situations to get where they want to be now. And you also probably know that that they had to start somewhere, from the bottom most likely and build themselves up to where they are now.
If you have a dream, you have to have a "whatever it takes" mentality. You have to understand that if you want different for yourself, you have to move differently, think differently and be a different type of person. You have to understand that you will sacrifice, get discouraged, derailed and unfocused, but no matter what, you have to keep going.
Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes. Whatever it takes.
Keep saying it until you believe it and develop a go-getter mentality.
To follow your dreams is to say that you believe in yourself and believe you are an investment that will pay off. Things will not manifest over night but keep going and pushing and your gifts will begin to make room for you. You owe it to yourself to reach your full potential and to be all that you can be. Life goes by in a blink of an eye and you don't get a second chance. You can either boss up and be the boss or be bossed around, the choice is yours.
You have everything you need to be succesful. It's up to you to take those skills and use them to the best of your advantage. There are so many people who are ok with mediocrity in their career, life and love, but if your're someone who dreams big, plans big, and wants more, you owe it to yourself to follow your dreams. Someone is counting on you, someone needs what you bring to the table to be better.
Follow your dreams, at all cost. Let no one or no situation deter you, whatever it takes to get there (with dignity and class of course). Understand and know that if you have the guts to go after your dreams, then you will win big!
