16 Reasons Why It’s So Important To Follow Your Dreams

A Dream, a vision, a goal, a desire, these are all things most of us know we need when we are working towards success but have somewhere along the line, forgotten why it is so important we follow them through.

 

So I have created this list….. Well, lets call it a reminder of why it is so important to follow your dreams.

 

The 16 Reasons Why It Is So Important To Follow Your Dreams

 

1. The secret of living is giving, if you follow your dreams then you will have something worth sharing with others, hope, inspiration and a meaning to live, and that to me, is a great contribution.

2. Chasing your dreams will develop your courage. Courage is your fuel to achieve amazing success in life, follow your dreams and exercise courage. In sure enough time you will be unstoppable.

3. There is a reason why as kids we loved magic and dreams. Stop chasing your dreams and you will forget how it feels to live hopeful and young.

4. Great dreamers grow to be independent, learning that they can make a difference all by themselves.

5. Dreams can distract you from the negative events in life. You will weigh up what is more important, your dreams or the drama. Drama seems obsolete when you are passionate about following your dreams.

6. It gives you something to share and inspire your kids with, you have led by example that anything is possible when you put your mind to it.

7. Through accomplishing your dreams you will come to appreciate the experience of failure and know that failure is just part of success and that it wasn’t really all that bad as it was all worth it in the end.

8. Regret is a terrible thing, and a dream is powerful enough to bring you regret if you don’t take the chance to at least follow it.

9. Because you are never too old to dream. Age means nothing when we know what we want.

10. You become an interesting person, you show others you have meaning, direction and purpose.

11. The unknown of following your dreams may spark a little fear, this is okay though because a little fear is known to make you feel more alive.

12. It is fun proving the world wrong, so why would you follow the status quo?

13. The more you chase and accomplish your dreams the more the lines of the boundaries that the world puts in front of us fade, as we learn that any and everything is possible.

14. When you accomplish your dream, you are the first to see it happen. You can share your accomplishments with the rest of the world but you where there in the front row on a single chair to experience the magic that unfolded.

15. Your dreams have no limits, you are the creator of your dreams, big or small. When this is understood, you are able to design a way to favour you plan and accomplish your end goal.

16. A dream is strong enough to define you, once accomplished you prove to others they have no say in who you can and can’t be.

    I bought the rhino & unicorn t-shirt from Threadless years ago. I bought it at a time when I was struggling to pursue my own passion and I loved it. After I wrote a book about transforming a dream into an action plan with tangible goals and experienced success, I look at the t-shirt and the little rhino seems sort of sad. I wish he was inspired by a big poster of a very fit picture of himself.

    As the Rhino chases the dream to be a Unicorn he will realize that he is happy being the best Rhino he can be; and learn how to be just that. As Jim Rohn said… Success doesn’t always come in achieving a particular goal, but who you become and the skills you’ve gained in the process of chasing your goals. They will lead you to be better prepared for the opportunities that will inevitably present themselves to you.

    I had dreams and chased them. Those dreams did not come to fruition. I no longer have any faith in having or chasing dreams. Nothing but disappointment and pain.

      “had” “chased” ?
      Sounds like you have given up. It doesn’t mean your dreams aren’t possible it just means you gave up. A lot of successful people felt pain and disappointment many times but because of their resilience the pain is a distant memory and their dreams are now their reality to enjoy for the rest of their lives.

These words are such a killer! You hear them from other people, and you even use them. If you’re in sales or you have a business and you need to get sales, using those critical filler words, um or uh, will kill you and your business. Do you think people will trust you more because you use the words um or uh in sales? Sure, you may get some people to buy from you that have very low awareness, but when you run into someone who is a high income earner and he’s your big ticket to the big commission…you’re going to run into trouble.

For most people, when the clock strikes 5pm it’s quitting time. When you work a second job, it’s time to refocus and prepare for working for the rest of the night.

When you have a part-time work from home job and a nine to five, it can be difficult to keep up with your responsibilities and find the right balance between fulfilling your commitment to both jobs without losing your mind.
