Dream Chasers

I used to be afraid of my dreams. I thought they were unattainable and they overwhelmed me very often. I wanted to achieve so much, but I was caught up on how others would view me in the development stages. I didn’t want to look like a failure if it didn’t work out. I thought that success had to be instant, and that it all had to be achieved at a young age.

Then I woke up.

I realized that our talents must be utilized. Even if we do not fully pursue the paths that our talents could lay out for us, the least we could do is find out how to pass it along to someone else. God gives us these gifts for a reason, and when I realized that, my fear of not fully utilizing them dissipated. I’m able to strive after something great because I know that dreams are a lot stronger than excuses. I do not want to be that man reminiscing about what I COULD HAVE done. I want to tell my kids that I achieved greatness, or I helped someone else achieve it. You have to chase your dreams regardless of how ridiculous they seem, or how unattainable they appear. Life is about challenges and overcoming them. The satisfaction of succeeding, is far more powerful than giving up because of the fear of failure. So chase your dreams.

I would love for you guys t like, comment, follow.

What Inspires you?

I often wonder what it is that keeps me going. What makes me wake up every morning and take a step forward, even though everything seems to try to push me backwards? Life, the world. Those keep me going. The fact that to the world I am so small, but my impact can be so big. I am but a tiny organism to this spherical mass, but it is all all here for me to see.

So many experiences to be made in this lifetime, each day may seem long, but in reality this life is only a split-second on the true spectrum of time and who am I to waste it and not make the most of it?

That is why I am inspired. There is so much to live for and so many reasons to move forward, sure there is corruption, sure there are hardships, but persevering through that makes you truly discover how amazing life and this planet is. Forget the strains of society, the adversities you face because of the economy, forget the daily issues and work towards something that will make you say, I made it and I love my life.

I’ve had many reasons to say f*ck it and just give up and quit, but through it all I am still here trying to strive towards greatness, and through each setback, I’ve remained positive, sure I have my bad days, who doesn’t?

But the point is..I’m Inspired. Inspired to lead others towards greatness, inspired to achieve dreams that I thought were futile. Never let time or expectations stop the flow of love that you have for a certain craft or anything for that matter. Recognize your flaws, and Make them your strengths. They say the only limitations that you have are the ones that you place upon yourself, once you are able to defeat your internal enemy, is when you achieve greatness.
