We all have dreams, deep inside... those moments when we take a voyage in our imagination, into a world where everything was possible, a world where fear is a strange concept, limits are non-existent and we are at peace with ourselves.
How come our biggest dreams don't come true? The answer is not a profound revelation from the east, culled from wisdom of the ancients. It is so simple; you begin to wonder why it skipped you all these years.
Sometimes we actually wake up and take one giant leap for mankind. Then we plummet back to earth, lick our wounds, and convince ourselves that it is not feasible and promptly go back to sleep. Sometimes we give it a second or third shot, before we say goodbye and return to Status Quo Avenue. Well, we gave our best shot...
The only way our dreams can come true, is when we start doing something about it. Start with a baby step, one tiny step after another. With time, you will be amazed by how far you had gone. The more steps you take in the direction of your dreams, the bolder you become. Soon you start seeing shafts of light at the end of the tunnel. The closer you get, the more feasible it becomes.
Gradually, your fears begin to ebb away. Taking the first step is a scary business. You can determine the magnitude and direction of that first step. Some folks take the bull by the horn, quit their day jobs, and go for it. Others keep their day jobs, and moonlight as sun down, till they get to the point they can comfortably fire their boss. For others still, it means a change of career.
