We all have dreams which we intend to follow and achieve. We lose ourselves in the midst of many things that follow up. The goals are left far behind with passage of time.
As we grow up in our lives our goals start piling up. It can range from achieving a small thing to a humongous task. The motivation and inspiration we have to achieve a goal dies with time if not nurtured carefully.
When I was a kid I wanted to swim. I wanted to go swiftly in the pool like my other friends. I was good as an athlete so I had thought I would learn this sooner than later. I initially was excited to achieve this dream of mine. I also worked towards it but lost the path somewhere. Sadly I have not been able to swim till date. This doesn't deter me from pulling myself up from swimming one fine day! I will keep trying.
Well what are the reasons for not meeting our own goals we have set. When we look back we will see complacency, procrastination, not giving enough time for ourselves to achieve them as some of the reasons for failing.
There are dreams which we achieve perfectly the way we have thought.
When I was in my high school I had a dream of topping my school. I was just an average student who was fun loving and loved playing. Being what I was, it was a Herculean task for me to achieve. I was inspired that anything is possible with will power. I backed myself to pull of a wonder. I started working early towards it. I spent time daily on it. It was a success story at the end of it. I did top my school in 10th grade and I am glad my dream was achieved.
However, there have been many dreams of mine which haven't gone my way and I inspire myself by remembering "You cannot fail unless you quit"
There are many times when you look back n feel 'Maybe only if I tried a little harder, it would have been possible' and there are many times when nothing clicks. My close friend rightly reminds me 'Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies'
There would have been many dreams(goals) in your lives which would have died unknowingly. Go give life to it and embark on the journey of achieving them.
I would conclude by quoting
"A man without a goal is like a ship without a rudder"
