Following YOUR Dreams - What it Takes!

Following your dreams. What does it really take? Why are some people more successful at making their dreams come true? I think one of the many keys to reaching those goals and dreams is courage. It's being willing to really KNOW what you want for your life and having the courage to take action. Courage is not the absence of fear but feeling any fear and taking the action anyway. Dreams require action and courage ! What action do you need to take toward your dreams? Have the courage to take one step this week and move closer to your dreams. I found this article and thought it was so great I wanted to share it with you. It reminds us of what "courage" is all about !!

Reaching Your Dream Takes Courage

Courage is admitting that you're afraid and facing that fear directly. It's being strong enough to ask for help and humble enough to accept it.

Courage is standing up for what you believe in without worrying about the opinions of others. It's following your own heart, living your own life, and settling for nothing less than the best for yourself.

Courage is daring to take a first step, a big leap, or a different path. It's attempting to do something that no one has done before and all others thought impossible.

Courage is keeping heart in the face of disappointment and looking at defeat not as an end but as a new beginning. It's believing that things will ultimately get better even as they get worse.

Courage is being responsible for your own actions and admitting your own mistakes without placing blame on others. It's relying not on others for your success, but on your own skills and efforts.

Courage is refusing to quit even when you're intimidated by impossibility. It's choosing a goal, sticking with it, and finding solutions to the problems.

Courage is thinking big, aiming high, and shooting far. It's taking a dream and doing anything, risking everything, and stopping at nothing to it make it a reality.

Thanks to Dale Smith Thomas and Carolyn Kent for sharing their insight and wisdom!
