|Inspirational Quote - Dream beautiful dreams and then... from Lexiphilia|
When I heard those words, I thought, Yeah... that is so true. While I think it's important to have dreams, I also believe it's important to realize that, for all but the very lucky, or sadly, the very corrupt, anything we hope to accomplish takes work. I read about so many shop owners and entrepreneurs and start-ups that fail because they hold on too tightly to "the dream" and forget about taking care of business along the way. They get discouraged and many give up when their dreams don't come true right away, but the reality is that not everyone has what it takes to push themselves day in and day out to make those dreams come true. It'd be great if the attainment of dreams were a guarantee, but in the meantime, is it more important to put all of your energy into chasing your dreams, or to make the most of your reality through persistence, dedication, and hard work? I know I can count on myself, so if my dreams are achieved, I'll know hard work got me there... and I like that thought! How about you? Will you chase your dreams - or work to make them come true?!?
