Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. – Langston Hughes
Everyone has a dream. A vision. Something they felt that they should be doing all their lives.
And yet, there is the demand for your time. The demand for your energy. The demand for your attention.
You’ll be swamped by other things in life. And your dreams take a back seat.
It is frustrating for not able to do it.
Must we live our lives like this? To admire those who can chase their dreams, while beating ourselves up for not being able to follow ours.
We can break this cycle. We are as worthy as others in achieving our dreams.
First, we must determine the priority in our lives. Does our dream have priority in the midst of our other commitments in life?
If yes, put your dreams into schedule. If nothing is scheduled, nothing is done.
How about your energy? A person’s energy is limited. No one person can be master of all trades.
Don’t waste your energy unnecessarily. Choose your activities wisely.
Does ADHD sound familiar to you? Bombarded with advertisement on TV, newsfeed in Facebook, cat pictures on Instagram, how could one be possibly be sane in a chaotic world.
How do you keep focused? To keep concentrated in your dreams?
Cut out the non-essential. Learn to meditate. It isn’t so much as to what you have in your plate as to how much you have consciously choose to leave the others out.
Raise your chance, raise your fighting chance, in achieving your goals. It is all about increasing the probabilities of success.
How would you choose to chase after your dreams? How do you manage your time, your energy, your attention?
