Starting a Business

Build Your Own Dreams, Or Else Someone Else Will Hire You To Build Theirs


The wealthiest man in the world (Bill Gates) was a college drop, who has about a million engineers working under him. Success doesn’t come easy. You don’t achieve your goals just because you were lucky. You either have a plan set for yourselves or it is someone else’s plan you’ll be a part of. If you don’t work on building your dream someone will hire you to build theirs.

You need to have a vision, and you need to have goals to turn your vision into reality. There is no point rubbing yourself in a 9 to 5 job, even if it pays you well enough. You need to find a job which inspires you, helps you grow. You need to focus on something that will add value to your life and vision. There is nothing wrong with helping other people to live their dream, but it should never be on the expense of your own dream.

We may be interested in a lot of things, and we may even do it according to our convenience. But commitment is what is required to pull ourselves out of the comfort zone. Is it not the time to climb out of that zone and to live the life you want, and to take the steps that are needed to live the life that excites you? You need to start now, leaving behind your unfulfilling life and step into your greatness. To live the life of abundance you need to start from the beginning- start from a dream. Before any dream can come true, it must first be imagined. Take time to fantasize, think about your goals. Think about how your skillful and talented you are, explore your thoughts. Think and think, till you get obsessed with it, because liking what you do isn’t enough. Obsession is the driving force that will make to get up and run towards your goal.

Before investing a great deal of money and time into a new venture, you need to be clear about all the effects and consequences. You basically have to have a plan, a blueprint. You should be clear about what you want to do and how effective your plan is going to be. You may have to take risks, but you should be brave enough to handle the situation if things go south. Invest your time and money carefully and wisely. But don’t be afraid to give up the good, to go for the great.

Pursue your own passion, not someone else’s.
Make. Your. Dream. Come. True.
