Perhaps, your dream is to become a speaker, entrepreneur or educator. Somehow, things didn’t work out that way. You say to yourself, maybe it wasn’t meant to be. Instead of becoming what you wanted, you became what you didn’t want. So you gave up on your dreams. There is a popular quote that says, if you don’t have dreams, you will continue to work for those who do.
When I got into my business, my sponsor told me that “this business is 80%mental and 20% physical. He then told me that I would quit on him before he quit on me. I thought about that statement. I realized that dreams don’t fail, People do. It’s amazing how we quit our business and say it failed me. I think it is more noble to say I failed instead of my business failed. If someone is succeeding in the same business you’re failing in, it’s not the business. It’s you!
We give up on our business, we give up on our marriage, we give up on life. Is there anything we don’t give up on? We must get rid of the “I will try it for a month to see what happens mentality”. Our dreams don’t fail us we fail our dreams. It is always easy to blame something or someone other than ourselves. This is because we don’t have the courage to admit we failed. In the past, I joined many business programs to support my dreams. I made lots of mistakes and quit. I did not regard the value that was offered to me. Today, it’s a different story.
In conclusion, dreams don’t fail, people do. We are the ones responsible for fulfilling our dreams. They will not get realized without our effort. When it’s all said and done, the person responsible for any failure is you. Leaders accept success and failure. Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream. So should you.
