Break your glass ceiling


Nobody is too old to set another goal or to have a new dream. All that matters is to believe in that dream and work everyday to make it come true. As Walt Disney said: “If you can dream it, you can do it”; as simple as that! This is possible if people only truly believe in their dreams and spare no effort to make them a reality someday. However, what stops people from having a dream is their fear of failure. This is not a fair excuse that one can have for if one doesn’t make mistakes, he learns nothing new.

Not to blame those scared to fail in achieving their dreams, but probably they wonder how a dream could come true?! The answer is you are what you think and you achieve what you believe in. Thus, if you have faith in your dreams, then definitely you will hold on them and strive to get them the breath of life. Perhaps, all they have to think of is that not all storms come to disrupt their life, some come to clear their path instead. They have to remember that before they can make their dreams come true, they must first have one!

Having a dream to chase is not a common belief to many people! Some only prefer to live the moment and do not even care about the future and what they would do the day after. It is good to keep your life simple and stress-free, but not to the extent that you do not bother to plan for what you want to do on the next day! Possibly, what concerns them more is how to make a good living and enjoy life. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

In fact, life is worthless without having a dream that one believes in and fights for. Dreams add a different flavour to life as it becomes challenging and thought-provoking, but rewarding of course. As Albert Einstein said, “Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all the facts”. Always the little of persistence results in getting more achievements and whatever looks a failure and disappointing might suddenly turn into a commendable victory.

If you thought that you failed in achieving a dream, change your ways of doing things, but not your principles. Likewise, trees usually change their leaves and not their roots. It has been said that a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, but an optimist sees an opportunity in every difficulty. There is nothing impossible to do regardless how difficult it is; you just got to roll the dice and make it happen.

Successful people always keep trying till they get it right; that is what we all should do when things don’t go right from the first shot. The road to success and making dreams come true is never an easy one; it is paved by challenges and struggles. Nobody is too old, too bad, too late and too sick to start from scratch once again. All what you need is to have more of self-confidence and believe in your dreams that are achievable ones.

To those who believe in themselves and like to celebrate their dreams shall never say die no matter what challenges come across their way. The journey to success is always full of obstacles; just keep moving as the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Martin Luther King advised, “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” Hence, one has to put his foot on the dream-making track and start the journey.
