We all have dreams for our life. Why is it that some of us turn our dreams into reality and some of us just keep dreaming? Why do some of us find the motivation to make our dreams come true and others just give up? I believe we are all capable of getting what we want from our lives. I also think we all have the potential to grow into somebody that we are proud of being. I think what sets a person apart is they believe they can or they believe they can’t.
I find it very sad when I see somebody with a vision of what their life could be, yet they think they can’t ever obtain the life they are suppose to have. This person somehow has never been taught to believe in themselves and now gets cheated out of the life they should have had. This is where really effective parenting is so very essential. We also need to help those not so effectively parented reach for the sky as well. We need to not give up on our dreams, ourselves and each other.
Dreams can become our wonderful reality if we create a plan with the correct steps. Think about every other goal that you have met and the plan that was made up of baby steps. I promise you that if you have a dream and want it to become your reality all you have to do is trust yourself and take the steps that turn dreams into reality. The first step is having the faith and trust inside yourself to believe that you can do it. Never lose sight of the already wonderful you and think of your plan as just adding to that wonderful person!!!!!!!!!!!!
