Believe in your vision even if others don’t understand.

While many people are living their dreams, there are also many who aren’t.

And there are several reasons why the latter happens.

  • People don’t know what they want, so can they ever live their dreams?
  • Expectations, from self or others, that keep them from fulfilling their dream. And that’s on the basis that they KNOW what they want.
  • Most aren’t prepared to go through the tests or trials before they get to live their dream.

Such tests or trials may simply be “noises”, again from self or others; fears of not knowing what will happen; or even a sense of responsibility or obligation towards the family.

Well-meaning family and friends will always sound alarm bells because they love you. They’d warn you about the pitfalls and dangers ahead.

But, more often than not, you’re the only one who knows your vision best and where that’s leading you. So, if nobody understands what you’re doing, and you know in the deepest part of your heart that it’s driving you, then keep at it.

Meditation and prayers have been my source of guidance and support. What’s yours?
