“Achieving A Dream Without Action Is Hallucination”
राह संघर्ष की जो चलता है,
वो ही संसार को बदलता है,
जिसने रातों से जंग जीती है,
सूर्य बनकर वही निकलता है।
Growing up, I have been told to follow my dreams and shoot for the stars. My parents have always been very motivating and influential. They have taught me to strive to do my best and have great determination to make things happen. One of my favorite inspirational quotes is by Michael Jordan: “Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” This quote implies that there are people who want and wish for things, and then there are others who go out and do something in order to make it happen.
I want to be successful. – is a wish.
I will be successful. – is believing in yourself. But until and unless you don’t work for it, you are nothing, just a daydreamer. To move beyond wishful thinking-and produce tangible results-requires specific goals and a well-crafted action plan. Such people know they want to go somewhere, but the destination is vague and the road map is non-existent.
“अगर मन ही मन में ख़्वाब देख-देख कर आज तरक़्क़ी कर रहे होते, तो हर दूसरा इंसान अंबानी होता सहाब।”
Goals are no longer vague or wishful thinking. But you still need the roadmap to get there. This is no place for trial-and-error or a disconnected series of random efforts.
Life is not a bed of roses afterall, twists and turns will come but that is not the end.
No matter how the week has turned out for you, keep working for it. Work for what your heart desires and what makes you truly happy. Don’t just live happiness in an imaginary world in your head. Take small actions everyday that will bring you closer to realizing your purpose Even if others tell you your dream is silly or impossible, don’t listen to them for even a second. No dream is impossible, if you have the *will* to make it happen.
When we have a dream, a deep desire, there is a reason for it and so we must work for it everyday. Don’t wait for the tomorrow to come, don’t wait for the miracles to happen. It is you who *wanted* to achieve it, now it should be you, who in the end *HAS TO* attain it.
If you really want your dream to become a reality, you need to decide that you want your dream to happen,you want it to become a reality. For real. Believe it will and can happen. For real. This is the magic sauce that will help propel your dream into reality. And you need to view your mistakes as lessons and not an excuse to give up!
Now, I’ll leave you with this quote-
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
— Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
