Going For Your Gold

Posted by [email protected] on August 5, 2016 at 7:00 AM

As we anticipate the upcoming Olympics, it occurrs to me that all these professional athletics from around the world were not dream chasers but dream catchers. Yes, I’m sure their journey in capturing their dreams was long, hard and well worth the heartaches. But, they never gave up on pursuing their dreams. 

We all have dreams of becoming the best we know we can be. Does it matter whether or not you have put your dreams on hold? Have you given up on your dream because someone else convinced you that your dream was not worth pursing? Did you give up on your dream because you did not believe that you would be successful? Whatever the reason, is that a legitimate reason for not pursing your dream? I hope that your answer is a loud “NO”.

I truly believe that there is no good reason not to pursue your dreams. Why? It is simple; if you never put forth the effort to pursue your dream, you will never know if you would have been successful or not in pursing your dream. “It is never too late to be who you were meant to be”-George Eliot. I live by this quote. This quote inspires me to keep my dreams as a front focus. There have been many challenges, roadblocks, naysayers, and haters, which have attempted to get in my way of pursuing those dreams. Yet, I have not allowed those negative elements to define my destiny. So, I challenge you to do the same. Let go of anything or anyone (including yourself) that is not contributing to the success of your dreams. Allow your dreams to come to light! Be motivated, excited, and giddy and most of all determined to make your dreams come true. Be a risk taker! Remember you are going for the gold! But, if you don’t make the gold, be willing to accept that bronze. After all, that bronze is still evidence of a dream come true. I’m so inspired by these athletics and I hope that you will be inspired as well.
