Pack up unfulfilled dreams for next year

When everything falls apart in one’s life, only dreams remain. Here one has to remember that only your dreams motivate you to put your life back together and stay ambitious.


If dreams die, life will be a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. Therefore, dreams must be free to fly high and not caged. As Walt Disney says, “If you can dream it, you can do it”.


Though some people might wonder if all their dreams could come true! Perhaps yes; if they seriously believe in their dreams and chase them, so they turn out to reality someday. However, there are, unfortunately, people who don’t believe in their dreams or never have one even. What matters to them is only living the moment. Rather, what concerns them more is the way of making a good living and enjoying life.


People get what they most think of and achieve what they believe in. Thus, if you have faith in your dreams, then certainly you will hold on to them and strive to make it a reality. However, sometimes the dreams that come true are the dreams you never even knew you had.


Some people would assume that what they have in mind is only thoughts and ideas, which most likely are shaped as dreams. But dreams always start with just a simple thought.


Achievers never turn back on challenges. There are always difficulties on your journey towards success. Just keep your hope alive and move forward as the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Challenges are opportunities to test your patience and persistence to chase your dreams.


Little persistence results in getting more achievements and whatever looks like a failure and disappointment might suddenly turn into victory. If you even thought that you failed in achieving your dreams, change your way of doing things, but not your principles. Trees shed leaves, but not their roots. It has been said that a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, but an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.


Hence, never surrender no matter how long it will take. It may take months or years. Just believe that your dreams are possible. As we come closer to logging out of 2022, take stock of your life and pack up your remaining dreams and plans for the next year. 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.


There is nothing impossible to do; you just roll the dice to make your dreams happen. Successful people always keep trying until they get it right. That is what we all should do when things don’t go right from the first shot.


Nobody is too old, too bad, too late and too sick to start from scratch once again. All you need is to have more self-confidence and believe in your dreams that are achievable.


Life, overall, is worthless without a dream to believe in and fight for. Dreams add a flavour to life as it becomes challenging and thought-provoking, but rewarding of course.
