Wake Up O’ You Sleepers!!
The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up. – Paul Valery
I LOVE this quote. At first I was quick to just skim over what I was reading. But when I went back to the quote, stopped and thought about what was said I was just struck with a sense of urgency.
Not a panic typed urgency but a realisation that this is life. This is my life. I only have one shot at it.
We can spend all day, daydreaming and then all night dreaming again. But the only way to make our dreams a reality is to just wake up. So many of us dream big and wonderful dreams, but that’s all we do. There will come a point in life when we need to wake up and start putting things into practice. Maybe it’s picking up that instrument once again and giving it another go? Maybe it’s applying again for that job you once got rejected from or maybe it’s practising the skill you had once been so passionate about. It could be anything. What is it that you need to do to get back on that horse? Don’t be scared of failure. Failing isn’t always a step back, it’s just an opportunity to try something again. To work harder and use another strategy. Failure is an opportunity to grow, learn and be strengthened.
The decision that you make today, no matter how insignificant it may seem at the time, will grow into something much greater. No matter the size of the seed that is sewed, it is still vital to the growth of the harvest.
I really want to encourage you guys to dream again. And not just dream. Practically make the choice to do whatever it is you need to do TODAY. Google something. Ring someone. Text someone. I don’t know… POST IT ON FACEBOOK… DO SOMETHING. Dreams need to be worked for and you’ve got way to much potential for it to just sit there!
I really want to share a song with you that I absolutely love. It encourages, motivates and moves me everytime I listen to it. I’m left thinking ‘Wow, there is so much more!’ I have an amazing friend who runs an Online magazine called LIOL. ( You should totally check her out) and not long ago a couple of our friends got together and used the amazing skill they have, to sing a cover to a song by ‘ALL The Sons & Daughters’, and of course, yes. It is about dreaming! I know you’ll love it too…
