Everybody has a dream or goal, but for most these remain just that – dreams or goals. If you don’t take any action or risk, how do you expect to fulfill these dreams?
So many people will always have these “wants” but will just continue with the status quo. You have to try to have a chance of succeeding. If you don’t succeed and decide not to pursue that dream anymore at least you won’t look back with regret. A new dream may even arise from the attempt.
It is not always as simple as this, although I wish it were. Some dreams are easier to reach than others, and as with love, the timing has to be right and a bit luck plays a part.
Are you ok financially, do you have family and moral support? Do you have the personality or temperament to achieve the dream? These are just some of the questions you need to ask yourself. So many talk about wanting to do that start up and make millions but how many will actually take the risk? How many have the personality to deal with the issues, the ups and downs associated with starting a new company.
For me, I have never been closer to my dream – to make TV shows or movies. I would also love to act, but that may be a bit of a stretch 🙂
After working at major broadcaster on the business side I am half way there. I understand the business, have the contacts but need to make the transition to the content and creative side. Not easy but I am closer than I have ever been before to reaching this dream. I know I need to try, what’s the worse that could happen?
I have never believed in taking the easy route, which has sometimes gotten me in trouble. I have never been an “all talk, no action” type of person. I have regretted some decisions, but believe in having to accept the consequences of my actions and decisions, which I do. Fortunately I have the support of my wife and family which makes it so much easier to take the chance. It is never easy, quite scary, but I am always up to the challenge.
Be the master of your own destiny, do not be afraid to dream, and be less afraid to act in order to achieve your dream:
