Never Ever Give Up, Your Dreams Are Closer Than You Think!
Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Lauren Frahn of LaurenFrahn.com.
We all love to dream – do you?
We all want our dreams to come true – do you?
We all are tempted to give up on our dreams – have you?
On the path to our dreams and successes, the road may not always be freshly-paved and smooth. There are going to be bumps along the way, but you mustn’t get sidetracked.
Do not make a U-Turn if your dream is still many miles ahead of you.
Choose to STAY THE COURSE…
“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson -
If I had given up all of the times an obstacle presented itself to me, I can assure you I would not have made it very far.
If you hit a roadblock on the way to your goals and dreams, call in the construction crew of your mind to re-strategize and apply the lesson that you have learned, because there ALWAYS is one, demolish the obstacle with your newly designed plan…and get right on moving again.
One of my biggest drives is my “desire to inspire”. Whether it be through a positive quote or word of advice (what I have trademarked as my “Words Beneath Wings”) or whether by example, there are few things that compare to the feeling that I get when I am able to help MOTIVATE, ENCOURAGE, or INSPIRE someone to ACHIEVE something that they set out to…to bring a DREAM to life.
Anyone who knows me knows that I surround myself with positive affirmations and inspirational quotes and messages…Try this! I will start with something that I have had to practice many times in my life and something that I believe with all of my heart is necessary in order to succeed….and that is to NEVER GIVE UP…Do this!
The only one that can make a roadblock to your dreams a permanent one is…Y-O-U.
Never settle for that option.
Believe with ALL of your heart that you have the ability to do ANYTHING…because you do…and can and WILL make it happen….
“Each of us has much more hidden inside us than we have had a chance to explore. Unless we create an environment that enables us to discover the limits of our potential, we will never know what we have inside of us.” Muhammad Yunus-
From No to Yes.
A “no” is not a “never”.
It is a signal for you to dust yourself off and TRY AGAIN.
A “no” is only a finality if you allow it to be. Find a way to turn that no into a YES and bring your dreams to life.
Does it take time and effort? Ohhhhhhhhh, youuuuuu betcha!
Is it worth it?? I can’t answer that for you, but for me, it is a resounding ABSOLUTELY! I refuse to settle for less than my best….and neither should you…
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas Edison-
We only get one life and it is up to us to do what we want with it….so why not live the life of your dreams?
What’s that? You can’t? Remove that doubt, because OH YES YOU CAN!
You are the only one who can create limits for yourself.
There is unlimited opportunity and an unlimited YOU. Remember, nothing is impossible…nothing!!
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined!” Henry David Thoreau-
Your dreams are YOU!
DREAM. INSPIRE. MOTIVATE. ENCOURAGE.
Stay motivated! Lauren Christine Frahn.
