31 Days to a Dream: Believe in your Dream

dream silhouetteYou know that dream you’ve been tossing around in your head? Do you believe in it?


Can you  say with 100% certainty that this dream – this goal you’ve got – is something you want to commit yourself to? Really commit yourself to?

I can tell you that, if you are wishy washy about this dream – if you aren’t quite convinced this is what you want to spend the next several years of your life working on achieving – then you won’t make it.

You need to believe in yourself and in your ability to do this thing, but you also need to know – beyond the shadow of a doubt – that it’s what you want.

When you are old and gray and sitting in your rocker, thinking back over your life, will you say, “That dream was a good one. I’m glad I took the plunge.”

Or will you look back upon your life and say, “I wish I had spent that time some other way.”

just-believe-in-your-dreamssThere are many options out there – many, many possibilities. Every day we are swimming in an ocean of options, with no end to the possibilities before us. Somehow, out of all those wonderful options, we need to reach out and pluck one – just one – off that tree.

Have you chosen wisely? Have you waded through the muck, pushed aside the possibilities that aren’t quite ripe, and grabbed hold of THE dream that is just perfect for you?

You’ll need to do that. Because you won’t work for anything less than perfection.

Believe in your dream. With all your soul.

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.
