In order to achieve the dreams of your desire, you must give up something to achieve it. There is a price for everything. When you have given it, you know what has been put at stake to get it. When you put forth the effort, it moves you one step closer to your goal.
It could be hard work that you put into motion. Knowing that you didn’t work hard for nothing drives your determination.
It could also be paying for a service like schooling. Knowing that you paid with your hard earned money gives your efforts a cause for something greater.
When you have sacrificed a portion of yourself to get somewhere better in life you know you have deserved it and that it made you a stronger independent person because of it.
How do you know if your dreams are being fulfilled?
Sometimes it’s good to look at what you’re working for. It’s important to know where all of your time and energy have been going towards and whether if it is making a difference. Evaluate your progress to see if it is taking you where you originally intended. If not, then ask if that is a good thing or a bad thing.
Have your sacrifices paid off or held you back? If you’ve made any progress at all then it has paid off. If it hasn’t then you might be heading somewhere you didn’t originally intend.
Always look at where you’re going. Is it a better place or a dreadful one? What can you do to get back on track again?
If your dreams are that important to you, maintain that vision in the forefront of your mind. Keep it alive with physical reminders like notes on your mirror or pictures on your wall that display your vision.
Remember what it takes to achieve anything. Effort, action, sacrifice, a vision, believing in it, and a purpose behind it all.
You are worthy of your dreams. Now go out and get them!
