Many people give up on their dreams because they are “too busy” or allow negative people to stop them in their tracks. I personally believe that regardless of your age, background and what’s going on in your life; ANYONE can make that step towards pursuing their dream, no matter how big or small. If someone really has the desire to achieve something and has the self-belief that they can make it happen, then no one and nothing in this world can take another person’s aspirations from them or stand in their way. Granted, a few sacrifices may need to be made, but if it’s really worth it, you’ll know in your heart that you’re doing the right thing because you’ll eventually be living the dream.A beautiful quote from Gail Devers, 3-time Olympic Gold Champion says:
Will I ever stop dreaming as an adult? Dreaming is what keeps me and millions of people going, so the answer is no. And as for those negative people and situations which have stopped us dreamers in our tracks, they only make us stronger because they throw in the test on how determined and dedicated we are to fulfilling our aspirations. Whilst I appreciate not all dreams become a reality (that’s life!), I am confident that we always end up where we’re meant to be in the end because as the Dalai Lama puts it “not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck” - it may just take you somewhere else much more rewarding.
The YouTube video below features the new song from British urban hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks, entitled ‘Dreamers’. With lyrics like “I can find my place in my dreams”, “we aim higher” and “we’re the believers”, this song aims to inspire anyone who listens to it to keep on pursuing their own aspirations because life’s too short.
Happy Shimmies :)
