Dream On… Dream Big…

Dreams are what motivate you to work hard in life. They give you a direction to follow and a goal to achieve. A human being who does not dream is a machine. We at QNET believe that one should not compromise with his/her dreams; instead they should strive as hard as they can in order to achieve their dreams. Here is what Pooja Shahani has to say about dreams,

A Dream is an inspiring picture of the future that energizes your mind, will and emotions, empowering you to do everything you can to achieve it. A dream worth pursuing is a picture and blueprint of a person’s purpose and potential. 

 

Sharon Hull,”A dream is the seed of possibility planted in the soul of a human being which calls him to pursue a unique path to the realization of his purpose”.

Five most common reasons that people have trouble identifying their dreams :-

  1. SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DISCOURAGED FROM DREAMING by OTHERS

Many people have had their dreams knocked right out of them! The world is filled with dream crushers & idea killers. Some people who aren’t pursuing any dreams of their own don’t like to see others pursuing theirs. Other people’s success makes them feel inadequate or insecure.
Perhaps others have dragged you down in life. They’ve discouraged you from dreaming. Maybe they resented the fact that you wanted to move up or to do something significant with your life or maybe they were trying to protect you from pain or disappointment.
Either way, if you’ve been discouraged from dreaming, take heart. It’s never too late to start dreaming and pursuing your dreams!

   2. SOME PEOPLE ARE HINDERED BY PAST DISAPPOINTMENTS AND HURTS

 

Disappointment is the gap that exists between expectation and reality. All of us have encountered that gap. We’ve had unexpectedly bad experiences. We’ve had to live with our unfulfilled desires and we’ve had our hopes dashed. Disappointments can be highly damaging to us.

Failure is the price we must pay to achieve success. Some people must face failure repeatedly before they move forward in the pursuit of their dreams.

Margaret Thatcher,former British Prime Minister,”You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it”. We need to remember that and make sure we don’t give up the fight too soon.

 

   3.  SOME PEOPLE GET IN THE HABIT OF SETTLING FOR AVERAGE

 

“The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for”. Dreams require a person to stretch, to go beyond average. You can’t reach for a dream and remain safely mediocre at the same time. The two are incompatible. 

When we are too uninspired to dream, when we settle for average, we may be tempted to blame it on others, on our circumstances, on the system. But the truth is that mediocrity is always a personal choice.

People who don’t possess compelling dreams are in danger of having their lives merely slip away. Their days can become mundane, and then they become like their days.

If you feel that your life is closer to average than you desire, you need to do more dreaming. Nothing helps to break someone out of a rut like a worthwhile dream.

 4. SOME PEOPLE LACK THE CONFIDENCE NEEDED TO PURSUE THEIR DREAMS

 

It takes confidence to talk about a dream and even more to pursue it. And sometimes confidence separates the people who dream and pursue those dreams from those who don’t. In other words, the more confidence you have in yourself , the less likely you are to give up trying to get what you want.

Dreams are fragile. And they are at greatest risk when they are new to you, when people you love and respect don’t approve of them, and when you have no past record of success to give you confidence. But confidence based on reality is necessary to strive for your dream. Such confidence can only be gained through self knowledge.

Judith Bardwick,”Real confidence comes from knowing and accepting yourself – your strengths and your limitations – in contrast to depending on the affirmation of others, from the outside”.

 

 5. SOME PEOPLE LACK THE IMAGINATION TO DREAM

 

Imagination is the soil that brings a dream to life! If you come from a discouraging background, or you don’t think of yourself as an especially imaginative person, don’t lose hope. You can still discover and develop a dream. GOD has put that ability in all of us!

Dale Turner,”Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or conditions, there still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born. Its never too late to dream”. ”

 

This shows us why many people are afraid to dream and how others try to stop them from achieving their dreams. QNET always tries to motivate its members to achieve what they want in life and pursues them to dream big… ALWAYS! You cannot be successful if you don’t dream.
