Dreams, Distractions & Determination!

Just when you start following your dreams, you will often be confused and distracted on the journey by very many things, which you will feel will be more attractive than your original dream or you will be thrown to Square one again and again by the umpteen no of failures that will meet you on the way.

At every step you will be offered with options to choose from, you will be showered with advises from people around you or you will be triggered to change your path(either because people envy you being focused on your dream, or because they feel you are on the wrong path) or you will encounter options by virtue of the property of life to offer options at every stage of life, to confuse us.

Just remember those who made their dreams happen were those who stayed focused on their dream/vision no matter what, until it happened and materialized ignoring or putting up with the obstacles that people around them set up for them.

Take the example of Abraham Lincoln who fought to eliminate racism from America or think of Mahatma Gandhi who fought for the freedom of a billion Indians or think of Thomas Alva Edison who invented bulb, these people ensured they just believed in their vision/dream as though it had already happened and they were only waiting for the final product to come into existence as their imagination had repeatedly shown it to them.

The rejections, failures, resistance, set-backs, lack of resources, discouraging factors all go on to become the elements of taste to the final recipe of success, they add to the galore of the final triumph of your belief over all the factors that once looked convincing enough to result in otherwise.

By the time you read these lines you were already visualizing a few dreams on your mind, a few visions were taking visual form on your mind, they are things you really want to work for. It's time you jot them down, wipe away the dust from them and set an action plan for them and set out on a journey to make them happen.

You can always come back to this page later to ensure you re-orient and remind yourself about this again and again till your dreams are a reality. But for now there is just one thing I want you to know and that is START:
