“Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” – Napoleon Hill

Take a deep breath and leap for the stars. Give some time to yourself and get what you have always wanted. Don’t let anything hold you back. Not everyone realises their dreams. Does that mean you should give up hope? Not at all. Victory comes to those who work hard for it. If you want your dream to become a reality, you have to pursue it. Here is how you can do it:

1. Dream

It might seem a redundant statement, but it is not. Most people don’t even know what their dream is. Do you want to be a singer? Or an explorer? Do you want to reach to the top of whatever profession you are in? What is it that your heart desires the most? Unless you understand what your dream is, you can’t achieve it. When you dream, make sure you dream something realistic. For example, learning how to fly wouldn’t be a feasible dream to follow.

2. Find a Mentor

Although I agree that you might be strong enough to follow your dream, it is best to get a guru- a mentor would guide you in the right direction. Since it’s your dream, you can’t expect the other one to be as passionate about it as you are. But having a mentor is a big motivational factor. And you don’t really have to go far to find a mentor. Who knows, it might be a friend or a relative. Anyone who helps you realize your dreams is a mentor.

3. Break your boundaries

Each person builds up boundaries around himself. These boundaries might relate to hatred or fear, but they don’t let people open up with others. Break your barriers and think free. Prepare to go an extra mile to realise your dream. If you always wanted to be an explorer, take a one-month break and go to wild places. That one month would let you know if you really want to be an explorer or not. But for that, you need to break your barriers. If you stay in your day job, working 5 days a week, you’ll never be able to realise what you’re capable of doing. I’m not saying you should quit your job, but at least give a chance to your dreams. Take just a month off and see if your dream is really worth pursuing.

4. Avoid criticism

Just keep in mind that you can’t make everyone happy. No matter what you do, there are people who will find faults in you. So be prepared for some criticism and don’t let that bring you down. Try to think who is holding you back. Your parents? Friends? Relatives? Whoever it is, they don’t know you completely. Nobody knows you more than yourself. You are the only one who knows about your inner fears and desires. Only you can make the best decision for yourself. So if your heart and mind say that you should pursue your dream, just do it. Don’t pay attention to criticism. All great people face criticism. Who knows, your dream might make you famous some day.

5. Face your fears

What is your biggest fear? Be ready to face it, because the journey to success is never easy. At some point or the other, you would have to face your fears and move ahead. Get ready to face challenges in your journey. At some point or the other, you would have to face challenges in your journey to success. And it is not always advancements. You will have to face setbacks too. If you are too afraid to face your fears, you aren’t ready to pursue your dreams.

6. Enjoy the ride

The journey to success is a bumpy ride, so make sure you enjoy every moment of it. Don’t let your setbacks pull you down. When achieve success, you will reflect back on those moments. Make sure you face those moments with courage, so when you reflect on them later, you can feel proud of yourself.

7. After success

Once you achieve your dream, do not stagnate. You need new inspirations and dreams to carry on your life. If you stop your journey, you will just stagnate. So make sure you keep moving. After realising your dream, get another dream and chase it.

Why do you need a new dream anyway? You see, life is not about one big success; it is about a series of successes… and failures. You became successful now, so get ready for another success, another journey, and more failures in that journey.

Are you following your dreams? Dreams are great, but they stay dreams unless you wake up and act on them. If you are not willing to move a muscle for realising your dreams, they’ll always stay dreams. Are you ready to be successful? Then stop waiting. Get ready to achieve what you’ve been dreaming for.
