Always chase your dreams instead of running from your fears.


Everyone is blessed with the ability to dream. However, very few people are determined enough to go out there and fulfill those dreams. Ultimately, how steadfast one is in the pursuit of their dreams is what sets successful men apart from the not-so-successful ones.

It really is all about the mindset. After all, why is it that only a handful of people manage to live their dream life when everyone, without exception, has an aspiration about where they would like to see themselves in the future? Arguably the first and foremost reason is the former’s determination. They do not just settle for sublime dreams, but actually back themselves to live those dreams. They are well aware of how difficult the journey can get, but that never deters them from undertaking it.

Aside from an obvious lack of resolve, most people have no idea of how to deal with failure, or the fear of failing. All their self-belief goes out of the window the moment they become aware of the obstacles they might have to face en route to seeing their dreams come to fruition. It is almost as if they have this utopian concept of success wherein they are supposed to achieve their dreams without running into any roadblocks along the way. It goes without saying that such ideas deflate their confidence and sap them of the willingness they need to keep moving forward.

Let’s face it, you can’t succeed without failing. Fearing failure is as good as fearing success itself, and the harder you attempt to avoid failing, the less likely you are to succeed. In fact, you have lost half the battle the moment you start focusing on running from your fears instead of pursuing your dreams. It is, therefore, important to be persistent and fearless in the quest of our goals in life.

There are a lot of quotes about the importance of not giving up on one’s dreams. One such quote goes as follows: “Always chase your dreams instead of running from your fears.”
