If you are like me then you are not happy with any vision of your life aside from the one that exhibits world class success as well as the achievement of all of your dreams. It has always vexed me how so many individuals can knowingly accept lives of mediocrity which are soon to be forgotten once they are gone. I want to have an impact that is remembered for ages to come. Today I would like to answer a simple question for you: Why most people don’t chase their dreams.
Fear and uncertainty tend to be the motivating factor in why most people don't achieve all that they have to potential to. Many people fear failure and some even fear success; They fear that they won't be able to handle the stress and burdens that come along with reaching world class success. Another thing that stops individuals from moving in the direction of their dreams is the uncertainty of it all. The well trodden path set out by society is easy to follow. However, this is the same path that the mediocre crowd of the modern day follow and as we all know: those who follow the crowd often get lost in it. To be truly individual you need to break away from that crowd and forge your own path into the darkness of uncertainty. Embrace your fear and push on regardless of how uncertain you may be. Doing this will take the courage of a thousand lions and the ambition of one hundred pioneers but it will be worth it.
Some people muster up the courage to chase their dreams thinking that it will be an easy journey. They are soon proven wrong by numerous hardships. When these hardships stack up against them they do the only reasonable thing: they give up. In order to be successful you must be unreasonable, don’t be bound by common sense. Throughout the quest for achieving your dreams you will be tested in ways which you never thought possible, your limits will be pushed and every one of your weaknesses will be exposed .The only thing you can do is push forward knowing that things each step will move you closer to realizing your grand vision.
“To hell with circumstances, I create opportunities”. You can’t always control your circumstances but you surely can control how you react to them. The proper reaction to any circumstance is to make the best of it. No matter how bleak things look, you must find a way. Where you are now does not define you; Visualize where you want to be in a year or so and take the proper action to get there. You have to potential to achieve just as much as anybody else on this earth; After all, we all get 24 hours in each of our days.
Most of the population is not hungry for success. However, they have one thing which dreamers like you and I do not: they are content. Contentedness with mediocrity causes stagnation which is why so many people fail to move forwards in their lives. Staying hungry and foolish is truly the only thing which will provide you with the motivation necessary to make use of all of your potential. Another mistake which many dreamers make is spreading themselves too thin and not having to focus to make any significant progress towards their dreams. You must simplify your focus onto a few essential tasks which you execute with stunning intensity. When you spread your focus out over many task you become dull and unprogressive. Nearly all dreamers possess the trait of ambition. This is a wonderful thing but it often causes over ambition which leads back to being spread too thin. Don’t get me wrong, you should be as ambitious as possible! But you must only focus on a few of your goals at a time otherwise you will stall out.
All in all there are numerous reasons why people live a life of mediocrity. I pray that you have the sense (or nonsense rather) to pursue your dreams with a fervent passion that is unyielding even when presented with the hardships thrusted upon us by life. There is nothing more noble than a person putting everything they have into their passion. Do not be stifled by the mediocre crowd that surrounds you, find dreamers to connect with and you shall prosper, that is all for today.
