31 Days to a Dream: Commit to your Dream

there is a difference between interest and commitmentDreaming is easy but bringing your dreams to life will be a challenge. If you’re not committed enough, you will fail miserably. You need to commit to your dream if you have any chance at making it happen.

Your dream can come true as long as it’s fed with determination and self drive.


Accept the challenges

You need to acknowledge and accept that there will be challenges involved with bringing your dream to life. There will be ups and downs but if it is something that you really want, you need to remain focused and committed. It’s easy to feel a sense of despair when things don’t go your way but be strong when the situation is shaky. Keep your head up through the difficulties.

Remember that how you handle the difficult times will determine how you will handle your dream as a whole. If this is something that is really in you, you will be willing to find a way to make it work. If one way doesn’t work then by all means try another. Keep at it until your dream becomes a reality.

Be determined

The #1 reason dreams remain only dreams is a lack of commitment. Think of all the benefits and satisfaction you will derive from making your dream come true.

Don’t be a quitter. Don’t give up on your dream. Working toward your dream makes life worthwhile and more fulfilling.  Be committed enough to work tirelessly until you get to wherever your dream needs to be.


Commit to your dream

commitDecide you want your dream more than you are afraid of it. Decide this dream, whatever it is, is the most important thing in your life. It will take sacrifice. It won’t come easily. If you are truly committed to making your dream happen, you will.

They key to making your dream happen is to stay committed. Be patient enough when things seem to move at a snail’s pace. Even the best wine is brewed longer so why not have the same mentality on something that means the world to you, your dream?

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.
