Beware of Dream Killers

Along the path, through our whole lifetime, we are going to encounter people who are going to say that we can’t do something, they will laugh at our dreams, they will criticize us, they will underestimate our abilities, and they will try to stop us from achieving our goals. These people are dream killers, they will try to convince you that your dreams are impossible, and you’re going to prove them wrong!

 

“Don't ever let someone tell you, you can't do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they're gonna tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.” - Will Smith (Pursuit of Hapyness) #dream #killers

 

It is not something personal with you, in fact, it has nothing to do with you, but it is something personal with themselves. These people have become dream killers because in some way, someone has made them believe that dreams are impossible to achieve. Another dream killer has made the same fine work with them before, and convinced them that their dreams are impossible, it made them believe that they can’t do it, and they believed it, and so they gave up on their dreams.

But who are these dream killers? In fact, a dream killer it is not only a person but an experience, a feeling, an emotion. Negative people, non-believers, haters, doubters, negative emotions, negative thoughts, fears, doubts, failure, lack of confidence, all of these are dream killers, and if we are not careful they will convince us that we cannot do it, and in that moment we will give up all we have ever dreamed of.

 

 

 

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” – Mark Twain

 

 

 

Therefore, how can you deal with these dream killers? – First, you will have to know that their reality does not have to be your reality. What these people tell you is their own vision, their own perspective about life, their own beliefs, but the truth is you create your own life, and that is all that matters. Second, you can use their negativity and transform it. But, how? Well, you can use it as motivation. You can use it as a powerful fuel, that will explode your heart, making you run with courage and confidence in the direction of your dreams.

Use it as a way to demonstrate them that they were wrong, because at the end, our experience can create miracles in someone else’s life. Therefore, use the sword which they use to try to kill your dreams in their favor, and cut the veil they have in their own eyes. Free them from the ropes that are stopping them from achieving their own dreams. Because if you make your dreams become a reality, perhaps, you can convince them that they can do it too.

 

 

 

“When people seek to undermine your dreams, predict your doom or criticize you, remember that they are telling you their story, not yours.” – Cynthia Occelli

 

 

 

All these dream killers that I mentioned before will try to stop you, they will talk, they will confuse you, but you don’t have to listen to them, but you have to listen to your own heart. If every time you close your eyes, and you think about your dream, your heart sets on fire, then go out and make them happen. You will never regret trying, but you will regret not trying. The truth is if other people could do it, we can do it. Surround yourself with successful people, learn from their mistakes, improve yourself, work hard, and above all always believe one very important thing: That no matter what the dream killers tell you, what matters is what you believe and if you believe you can do it, if you believe in your dream, if you believe in yourself, you will achieve every dream that you propose.

 

 

 

 

Listen to your own heart, pursue your dreams with confidence, create your own reality, have faith, believe in yourself, and courageously make the impossible possible, and prove all the dream killers that they were wrong!

Take the First Step

In order to reach our destination, we must begin the journey by taking the first step. Any victory depends on that first step. It is the first action, the first move, the first try, what can lead us to the place where we want to get. That first step makes everything possible and our following actions make it all come true.

 "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." - Lao Tzu

 

Let’s analyse this: Everyone wants to win the jackpot, but how many of us actually goes and buy the ticket? The truth is that only a few of us do that, but why? The reason is simple: Our thoughts and beliefs creates boundaries between our dreams and our reality. We dream but believe they are impossible or too difficult to become a reality, so we give up even before trying.

If you believe that the chances of winning are almost zero it is very likely that you are not going to buy the ticket, so you are not even going to try, or you will try, and if you don’t win, you will use that as a way to prove that you were right about that winning was impossible, and you will finally give up. You can see here that the first step is crucial as it determines everything.

 

 

 

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” – Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

 

But why the first step is so crucial? How is it possible that it can determine everything? Simple. There are two different outcomes that makes the first step so vital: If we decide to not take that first step, we decide to lose by default. But if we take that first step, it means that we are in the correct way to make our dreams become a reality. If we continue to move forward, step by step, not giving up, overcoming adversity, with perseverance, commitment and faith, it is likely that we reach the desired destination.

Therefore, the first step will be to buy the ticket. What I mean here is that we have to believe in our dreams and go out and make them happen. In order to make your dreams and goals become a reality, you will have to take the first action that will get you closer to the place where you want to be. The first step will determine whether your dream will remain a dream or if it will become true.

 

 

 

“Take the first step, and your mind will mobilize all its forces to your aid. But the first essential is that you begin. Once the battle is startled, all that is within and without you will come to your assistance.” – Robert Collier

 

 

 

No dream will become a reality if we do not take actions. It is beautiful to dream, but what is hard is to take actions to make them a reality. You are not going to win the jackpot if you don’t buy the ticket, that is to say, you are not going to get to the place where you want to be, or get what you want to have if you don’t take the first step. It is our decision to act what creates our destiny and it is our inaction what leaves everything to chance.

If you want to be a doctor, an engineer, a lawyer, a graphic designer, or whatever you want to be, you will have to take the first step and enrol in the university. If you want to learn a new language, you will have to take the first step and look for a course in your city or online. If you want to lose weight you will have to take the first step and make the decision to change your diet. If you hate your job and you want another, you will have to take the first step and find another one. If you want to be a professional athlete, you will have to go and train. If you want to quit smoking, you will have to decide to smoke less cigarettes a day or not buy any more cigarettes. There is always a first step that makes what we wish and dream more real.

 

 

 

 “The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one.” – Mark Twain

 

 

 

It is the first step what get us closer to our dream, and it is our perseverance and commitment to make it happen what makes it all possible. Every single person who has been successful at doing or getting something has once decided to take the first step and then work until they succeeded.  So, what is your dream? What do you want to do? Who do you want to be? What do you want to get? Where do you want to get? If you know the answers to those questions it means that the moment to start is right now. The key is to do step by step what we should do in order to achieve what we want. We have to make the decision to take the first step and start changing our lives.

 

 

My question now is: Have you taken the first step? If you have done it, congratulations! You are one step closer to your goal, keep moving and don’t give up, and if you haven’t done it yet, go ahead and fearlessly take the first step
