Are you like me and have a dream that you never fully pursued once you reached adulthood? Did having kids and getting married cause you to put your dreams on the back burner? I know I’ve been guilty of allowing that to happen with me and the dreams I had growing up. While watching the movie GREATER I was reminded just how much dedication and work goes into making a dream a reality. I wanted to give you some tips to inspire you to be a Dream Chaser.
Brandon was told on more than one occasion that he couldn’t be a famous football player. He was informed he wasn’t strong enough. He worked hard and showed up for every practice. His determination paid off because he did end up playing football and becoming one of the greatest players on the field.
GREATER is the kind of movie that will inspire almost anyone to want to make their dreams a reality. Instead of merely being satisfied with just sleeping through your dreams you’ll become a full-fledged active dream chaser. This movie has the ability to remind you that this world is full of people who are quick to give you reasons for doubting yourself or discourage you from trying due to possible failure.
I’m here to remind you that anyone is capable of doing anything they set their mind to. Here are some tips to help you finish your dream chasing race. After all, don’t you think it would be better to experience something with all of your five senses?
Tips to Dream Chasing
Create an inspirational board.
On your inspirational board put your favorite quote(s) that will inspire you to keep going even when the chips are stacked against you. Fill it with all of the things you want to gain from your achieving your dream.
My personal quote would be:
Some of the images I would add would be of teens who look rough around the edges, but yet are proudly holding a high school diploma. I’d also have to have images of teens affectionately working with a horse.
Remember 10 minutes a Day Makes a Difference
I know 10 minutes a day doesn’t sound like a lot of time. However, once you start investing at least 10 minutes a day into something consecutively you start to long to add in more time if it’s something you're passionate about. You’ll be able to see that if you can make time for those ten minutes that you can find time in other areas of your life. Most people do not realize how much time they actually waste in a day.
I’m trying to show my kids how much time they lose in a day by having them live life on a stricter schedule lately. I remind them that “time is money.” I also tell them that “time is love.” There has to be the time in our lives to pursue both of those areas.
It Doesn’t ALL Have to Be Done by You
If your dream requires the help of others, then find a way to make it happen. I’ve found that in our society there is always somebody else who shares a desire to do the same thing. Maybe they’ve already started it. You could possibly join forces to make their current project bigger and not have to work as hard to make it happen. Or you could look for grants or organizations that sponsor the kind of project you have in mind to finish. The point is that there is always someone willing to help. It may be in the most unlikely of places that you find the supporters you need.
The overall consensuses are we all have it within ourselves to be dream chasers who turn them into realities. If you want something bad enough nothing will stand in your way and your excuses will fall to the wayside. I hope these tips gave you something to consider in order to pursue your dreams.
