The Gap between Dreams and Reality
We all dream. This amazing feeling when we go to bed knowing that we will be able to now cut off from the real world and start thinking of ways to turn our desires into a reality is a space we wish we could stay in forever. However, what is the gap between desiring and turning the desires into a reality? Have you ever observed an ant? When on the mission to climb a wall, it falls down ninety nine times, yet it continues and finally climbs it all on the hundredth try. I personally like the perseverance of the ant. It inspires and gives me a lifetime goal of never feeling defeated.
Too many people in this world give up even before they can spell a setback. If you want to conquer your fears and achieve something in life, the ant’s path is exactly the path you should chase when on a task. You may fail several times and might feel things aren’t working but the truth is while what you expect might not be working however there are many other elements that are in one way or another working without you being aware. The challenge here lies in continuing. Every time you fail, you need to find the glitches and an absolute fresh way that leads to your due success.
On the way to that glory, you will discover a different version of yourself – unfathomable and unstoppable. The ups and downs will teach you how to remain in the face of unimaginable adversities. That being said, you should ensure that you are on the right path and truly working to make your dreams a reality. In my journey of working with hundreds of thousands of people here are a few points that you should keep in mind when you’re on such an endeavour in life.
Have realistic goals set
One lofty goal often has several small tasks and goals within it. In order to fulfil that, you’ll have to undertake those small tasks too. At every moment, you should live in the present and understand the need of the hour. Know the resources you need to make the small goal a reality.
Along with this, the small tasks may also have some unrealistic elements. Get away from them. They waste much of your precious time and give nothing in return.
Work harder than anyone else
Nothing in life comes easy. Things move in the direction of our vision when we put an extra-ordinary effort. The way you use each moment of your precious time will decide your victory in every endeavour of life. Remember, be the hardest working person in any room you are placed in because there are no substitutes to hard work.
One of the biggest things that sets people apart is their ability to learn from their past mistakes. A lot of people in today’s time know that they are going to fail however very few know the importance of not repeating their mistakes and learning from their past failure. Failure is a great teacher, one who is eager for you to learn. So the next time you fail, pause and see that you aren’t repeating that which has already happened.
Laugh out loud in the face of challenge
People often succumb under the pressure of challenges. The truth is everyone at all points will face challenges. The magnitude of the challenges has nothing to do with you worrying over them. Instead, facing each challenge with a smile and peace of mind can do wonders for you. Never let the problem overpower you – this is a secret that will help you overcome obstacles no matter how big. Your situation will resolve before you realize.
It doesn’t matter how much we apply to our everyday life. Often if we master it and just do that consistently, our life can shape up quite differently. So rise up, let your sun shine out there and be the finest version of yourself! Nothing can stop a person with firm determination and true grit.
