What’s your dream? I’m not trying to inspire you just for the sake of adrenaline. I’m seriously asking you to name your dream.
You may want a specific job or hope to travel the world. You may want to be the best soccer mom there ever was. Learn a language, go skydiving, raise a million dollars for your favourite charity.
My dreams are very lofty. I have many of them and I’ve never been afraid to say them aloud. Here are a few of my dreams:
1. Write a novel (that gets published).
2. Earn a PhD in Political Science.
3. Make an impact as a human rights advocate.
These are not small goals and they will take a great deal of effort to bring to fruition. But, if past experience tells me anything about my capacity to realize my goals I have a decent chance of success.
Here are a few goals I’ve already accomplished:
1. Acquiring a Master’s of Arts degree in Constitutional Politics
2. Having an academic paper published.
3. Becoming a writer that survives by doing what she loves.
Not one of these accomplishments came easy. But I’ve been discovering that if I can dream it, I can also make it come true.
Think about your life goals. Write them down. Tell someone who can be excited for you. I don’t care if your goals are to run a country, a marathon, or a household. You can do anything if you can dream it.
