Since dreams don’t have an expiration date, you should know that there actually are a lot of reasons not to give up on your dreams, reasons you should consider especially if you feel overwhelmed lately because you think that all your work is in vain. I love this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, who said that “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” You should never let anyone steal your dreams, because you never know what you can accomplish until you actually try and do something about it. Here are a few very important reasons not to give up on your dreams:
1. “It’s Better to Try and Fail than to Wonder What Might Have Been.”
In my opinion this is definitely the most important of the reasons not to give up on your dreams. I know some dreams can be pretty scary, especially if they require a lot of effort and hard work from you. You will have to face a lot of challenges in your path in order to reach your goals and I’m sure you have the strength to overcome them. Just don’t lose hope and keep on trying!
2. You Deserve to Fulfill Your Dreams
One of the things that should motivate you in pursuing your dreams, no matter what, is precisely the thought that you deserve to be happy and successful. You deserve to accomplish all your dreams, no matter how impossible they might seem sometimes. Well, you will have to put a lot of work in order to reach this objective but once again; nothing worth achieving is ever easy.
3. If You Work Hard Enough, You Will Succeed Someday
Helen Keller once said that “We can do anything we want to do, if we stick to it long enough.” and I have to agree with her. I believe that if you are willing to work hard enough, you will accomplish anything you have in mind. Maybe you won’t fulfill your dreams right now, but I’m sure you will succeed someday. Just commit to your dreams, no matter how long it will take you to experience success because big dreams are worth fighting for.
4. You Will Be Able to Enjoy the Small Victories
You can’t achieve a big dream at once, you’ll have to break down your goal into little pieces and you’ll have to take one small step at a time. By doing this, you’ll be able to enjoy a lot of small victories that you’ll encounter along the way. These small successes will motivate you to work hard enough and to be patient, so you’ll be able to fulfill your biggest dreams someday without losing hope.
5. Sometimes Success Can Be Right around the Corner
You’ll never know how close you are in reaching your goal unless you are willing to put a lot of effort in fulfilling it. Sometimes, success can be right around the corner, so don’t give up the fight, no matter how tired or even how exhausted you might feel. Keep on trying and don’t lose hope because sometimes we lose simply because we give up far too soon.
6. Set an Example
Another thing that should motivate you to always fulfill your dreams and never give up on achieving them, no matter how difficult would be the challenges you’ll have to face along the way is the fact that you should set an example to your loved ones through your behavior. You should think about this especially if you have kids or siblings who look up to you. Be a good example for them, be an inspiration!
7. You’ll Be Stronger
Don’t be scared to try to accomplish big dreams because you can learn a lot of things through hardship. Also, you shouldn’t be afraid to fail sometimes because failure can be the best teacher you’ll ever have. Every time you fail, you have the chance to learn from your mistakes so you’ll be able to avoid them in the future. Just pick yourself back up and notice how stronger you’ve become and how capable you are of achieving your biggest dream.
Remember - anything is possible if you are willing to work hard enough to get it, no matter how outrageous you think your dream is. Don’t lose hope and don’t give up the fight!
