To have dreams is the first step toward making them realities.Once you have dared to dream, I believe you MUST pursue that dream. If you do not pursue your dreams they will consume you; the knowledge that you had a dream but did not pursue it is killing knowledge. Consider it absolutely necessary to go after your dreams.
Jose Ortega y Gasset said “Human life, by its very nature, has to be dedicated to something.”You cannot gain on your goal with an attitude that you will pursue it only if it is convenient, or as long as there are no hassles,or no hoops to jump through. Life is not that kind of party. It is a rough go out there.
Go after your dream with a sense of entitlement. Know that you have the power to achieve it and that you deserve it. Be willing to get up into life’s face, grab it by the collar and say “Give it UP! It’s my dream.”
You have to focus on yourself and sell yourself on your ability to perform, to achieve your objectives and to deserve them. Tell yourself when you review your goals each day that you deserve them. Say to yourself, “I’m capable, talented; I’m committed. I DESERVE my goals.”
