Your dreams

There is a reason why you have the dreams that you have. Your dreams are yours so that you’ll be compelled to follow them.

The pain you feel when you’re prevented from following your dreams has the same purpose as any other pain. It is meant to get your attention and encourage you to correct the situation.

The joy you feel when following a dream is also there for a reason. That joy serves to keep you in pursuit of that dream.

Your dreams are not there to frustrate you. Your dreams encourage you to more fully become the best that you can be.

Your dreams may not seem reasonable or practical or realistic, based on your current circumstances. Keep in mind, though, that those dreams exist to encourage you to reach beyond the circumstances of the moment.

As you follow those dreams, you’ll discover and develop new skills, passion, and knowledge that can carry you far. Follow your dreams, and fully become who you are.

— Ralph Marston
