“When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are.
Anything your heart desires will come to you.”
These profound words, sung by Jiminy Cricket in the Disney movie Pinocchio, are familiar to many of us, but many of us brush them off as impossible.
Perhaps they are, but that should never stop us from dreaming. Because, what if dreams do come true?
We all dream big dreams. Dreaming is an important part of our lives. It gives us hope of better things to come, for ourselves and for those close to us. It’s also an easy exercise. Fantasising about the good things in life is limited only by our imagination. Turning those dreams into reality however, often involves pain, sacrifice and even failure.
When you have a heartfelt desire to accomplish or attain something, its important to turn those thoughts, those wishes, those dreams, into action.
Decide how you’re going to accomplish your dream, establish a plan and begin. Don’t wait for the perfect time, it will never come. Start today.
As you are moving forward, try not to over-analyse your strategy, or the desired result. If you over-think your plan, you will become frustrated. One step at a time works best.
Another no-no is comparing yourself to others. There will always be someone who has accomplished more than you. No matter. Focus on your own creative dreams, utilising your own strengths and the power within.
Don’t get too caught up in the outcome either. When you dream big, you may not get everything your heart desires. But the end result will still be much better than where you were when you started.
Dare to dream. And dream big. Because, if you don’t have dreams, your dreams can never come true!
Life is a journey
