Never Give Up on Your Dreams and Goals in Life

What are your hopes and dreams? Have you set clearly defined goals you want to accomplish? Those life goals that you set for yourself will drive your passions.  If you know what drives you to succeed, then you will do whatever is necessary to try to meet that goal.

Henry Ford once said, “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.”

If we keep our eyes on the prize and when times get tough, we can remember why we are tackling it in the first place. There is a saying that God gives us dreams a size too big so that we can grow in them. I like that.

If we live for our dreams, we learn to live in such a way that we believe we can accomplish anything. We don’t need to feel disheartened if things don’t work out as we planned.

Even Thomas Edison, the American scientist and inventor failed several times before he got it right. Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

That is a great philosophy to have. Experience teaches us lessons in life. We grow in our mistakes and we learn what works and what doesn’t. If we fail and make the same mistake again, perhaps it’s because there was another lesson we needed to learn.

Edison is one of the greatest inventors in history. Holding over 1,000 U.S. patents, Thomas Edison is most known for the electric light bulb. Yet he also influenced life in his day and still does long after his death. Edison died in 1931 yet his name is synonymous with electricity.

If you have dreams that you hold dearly, don’t give up on them.

J.K. Rowling said in her Harry Potter book The Sorcerer’s Stone, “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

Set some goals. Give yourself deadlines to meet those goals. Every step you take gets you closer. Inch by inch and mile by mile, you are closer today than you were yesterday.
