Reaching for Your Dreams is the Key to True Happiness

The Summer Olympics start is just a few days in London this year.

This got me thinking about dreams – not the “middle of the night while you’re sound asleep” dreams – but the “I’ve wanted to do this since I was a kid” dreams. Sadly and far too often, these are the things that got put away when we became adults so we could focus on life and our responsibilities.

Those who have the honor of competing in the Olympics are the ones who did things differently than so many of us. They had dreams. They focused on their dreams. They had encouragement to keep reaching for their dreams and they have the happiness of knowing that they DID what they dreamed of as a child. We could learn a little about happiness from the Olympic athletes.

To help you to re-ignite the power of your dreams on your life (and the happiness that you can have by doing this), I have included some encouraging quotes for you today. Read these quotes, while thinking about what you dreamed of doing when you were a child. I also encourage you to pull those dreams you had off of the dusty shelf and give them a second chance. I wish happiness for you today – and I know that your dreams hold the key to YOUR happiness. Reach for them today.

~ Hard work isn’t hard when you focus on your dreams!

‎~ If all of a sudden, you find yourself working hard and not realizing it… keep going! You have just discovered the secret of successful people!

~ Don’t let anyone stop you from pursuing what you want to achieve. Life will test you to see how serious you are about pursuing a particular path. Sooner or later, you will face negative feedback; don’t let anyone crush your dream…

~ Today I choose to: accept possibility, embrace challenges, be consistent, stay humble, take responsibility, choose happiness, have confidence, & claim victory now!
