The world offers too many options today, and it is hard to stay true to yourself. Someone is selling you a dream wherever you turn your head. In these conditions the one can ask himself not only how, but is it possible to chase your dreams, or even…
Should I Follow My Dreams?
Yes, you should!
While growing up, we get confused and brainwashed by our dreamless society and dream killing system. Very few people are living a dream life because they realized that dreams are for free, and no one can take them away from them. Moreover, the best things we got in this world are free! Our thoughts, our hopes, our minds, our souls, our bodies. All we have to do is to breathe life into our dreams, and keep on breathing and chase them until they realize.
And I assure you they will!
Resolve right now to kill all of doubting questions such as should I, can I, is it possible, etc. These doubts will do you no god; moreover, they will only cause even more uncertainty. Be aware at all time that you should, you can, and it is possible!
Like Nike Says, Just Do It
There is no right time or the perfect moment. If you are thinking about it this very moment it means you should dive in, take a leap, go all in! And never lock back.
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” Joseph Campbell
Of course, the fear will is always there, but there is a great pleasure in beating the fear. You will be amazed at what new powers you will discover once you decide to stop asking those questions and just do it. The blessings on the other side of fear and doubt are too good to be described in words, they must be lived!
But if you need more than -Just do it!- continue to read.
How To Chase and Accomplish Your Dreams?
The answer can be found in paragraphs from above. However, these few tips from below can help you to stay on the right road while chasing your dreams until you accomplish them.
1. Set a Goal and Create a Plan
A dream is somewhere in the air, it is invisible, and it doesn’t have power until we put it on the paper and decide to convert it into a goal and plan to achieve that goal.
The procedure is simple. Take a pen and paper and write it down. For additional help, you can see my post about goals.
2. Build Faith in You, in Your Dream
It can be challenging to have faith in something which is not here yet. Many people told me that it is impossible, but I assure you it is possible. Faith is an emotion which can be developed if not already existing.
“I believe we can talk things into existence.” Jay-Z
The secret for development of the emotion of faith hides in a principle of autosuggestion. When you become able to say to yourself in a strong affirmative voice “I am doing this” or “I have that” you will do it or have it. Until then, you can repeat those affirmations as long as it takes to develop a strong feeling of faith in your abilities.
It will work for everyone who is brave enough to try.
3. Persistence Pays Off
We don’t say “chasing dreams” for no reason. If you stop and give up, they will run away from you.
Once I heard a wise man talking about the persistence and that it is just another word for faith. When I thought about my past experiences, I saw the truth in that statement. To build confidence in your dreams, you will have to be persistent. To be persistent in your dreams requires a significant amount of faith.
In the end, persistence pays off!
4. Invest in Yourself
How will you ever realize your dream if you don’t study if you don’t learn if you are not willing to invest time and work in it?
“Dreams seldom materialize on their own.” Dian Fossey
Many people make a mistake wishing for their dreams to realize. They think “as long as I wish I will have it.” False! It will drive you mad. You will have to work for it, read books, go to seminars, listen to the programs, do whatever you have to do to fuel the desire to accomplish your dream.
For all my life I am a fan of sports. And what we can see many times in sports is a great sacrifice. Those who are willing to sacrifice the most they always achieve their dreams. Others who are not willing to put in all they have, they only get a glimpse of their ideas in reality.
5. Start in the Morning
One more sports example. Kobe Bryant was often found early in the morning (sometimes 3 am) shooting the ball on the court. To win the NBA title was more than a dream to him, it was an obsession.
All great dream-chasers work on their dreams all day long, and they start as soon as they wake up. I found a big difference in my results since I began with a morning ritual.
You Will Have To Keep Your Dreams Alive
As you see, to keep it alive you will have to make a lot of sacrifices. You will have to adapt your life to your dream and not your dream to your life.
To recapitulate, you will have to set goals, have faith, be persistent, work hard and invest in your self, start from the morning and finish in the evening, and above all, just do it!
One more important suggestion is to IGNORE the NAYSAYERS.
There will be many, many people who will try to pull you down. Just ignore them! In many cases, they will be the people who are closest to you as friends and family.
Listen to yourself, listen to your hart. If you have to, decide to stay alone for a while. Those who love you will come back to you.

All it takes is just six minutes a day! Actually, it takes more than six minutes a day. However, if you can concentrate on your dream for full six minutes, you will stay on the right track, and eventually, you will achieve the success.
