Did you know that pursuing your dreams takes daily commitment? It would be nice to think that you could decide on Monday to do something and on Wednesday you’d still feel just as motivated and excited as you did but, that’s not how I’ve found real life to work. It takes deciding every. single. day. to relentlessly pursue your goals. You will face opposition; not everyone will “get” your idea; the weather can be poor causing you to just “feel moody”… Who knows all the “whys and wherefores” of difficulties we face, but I think it’s important to know that opposition doesn’t necessarily mean you are on the wrong track. In fact, at times, it can mean just the opposite! When a baby eagle is born it must peck its way out of its shell – this action prepares it for survival, if it doesn’t do this – if someone steps in to help – that bird will likely not make it…. So I encourage you to embrace any opposition you might be experiencing today and…
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
This inspiring quote by Henry David Thoreau really encourages me to take heart and carry on forging a path towards the future I believe is ahead of me, despite where I might be today. And, to enjoy myself on the journey!!
I hope you find encouragement too!
