Chase Your Dreams…

“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing– and keeping the unknown always beyond you.” – Georgia O’Keefe

Why do I keep writing? Why do successful people keep at it? Why do billionaires don’t retire on tropical islands? Why doesn’t it all end when your dream comes true? Why doesn’t it come a time when there’s nothing left to wish for?

Because, simply put, it’s all a long, long journey. One word at a time, one step at a time, one little goal at a time. It’s all about becoming, not obtaining.

This world, and everything in it, belongs to those who believe in their dreams. To those who chase those dreams to the ends of the world. To those who run after their destiny and keep on running, no matter what.

So what if others don’t believe in your dream? If they keep telling you to be reasonable and find something else to do?

So what if others tell you that you dream too big?

So what if no one sees it? No one believes in you?

So what if you’re not there yet? If it seems like an impossible journey?

So what if you don’t have the resources, the time, or the talent?

So what?

You can do what you want, be want you want, achieve any goal, create anything into existence.

Because dreams do come true, if only you are willing to sacrifice. If you are willing to put in the effort, to do what others won’t, to give up comfort, sleep, social relations.

Dreams do come true, if only you’re willing to do whatever it takes to make them come true.

  1. I agree. There was one part about are you willing to sacrifice everything and the truth is I’m not. I’m not willing to sacrifice reading with my kids or hanging out with my husband. But it just means that my dream has to be one that fits in with my personal life. ❤️

  2. I was listening to a podcast today who was guest hosting a woman who made a living at writing. She said that writing doesn’t make you happy. Because you think it’ll make you happy to publish your first book but then you want to publish another book. And then you want to have a best seller… and so on. There is always some new peak to reach to make you feel happy. Just more confirmation that happiness doesn’t come from success, because how success is defined keeps changing.
