Take Action Now to Follow A Dream

It is magnificent to know you really can take action now and follow a dream. Some people have beautiful china closets full of gorgeous, precious dishes that look at, dust and admire, but never use. I look at those people with amazement. Often many hours were devoted to finding just the right china pattern, picking out the perfect china closet and to arranging the dishes on the beautiful shelves. The china was put on the shelves to be admired and never used. There are other people who also have beautiful china closets full of gorgeous, precious china dishes that come out of the china closet and make it to the dining room table a couple of times each year. The people in the first group are like people who are reluctant to take TAN aka action now to achieve their dreams. The people in the second group are people understand that there is a time and place for everything.

Take a moment now to look at your life, think about your dreams. How are you treating your dream, what are you doing with them? What has been your history when dealing with your dreams. Has your habit been to sit back and treat your dreams as precious untouchable things that sit in the china closet of your mind? Or, are you a person who tends to take action now and to treats your dreams as things that must be used, worked and acted upon? There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. No matter what your answer is, answer honestly. Once you have asked the question and answered honestly, you will know your place in the universe.

Once you know what your place in the universe is you are able to either stay there and be happy in the knowledge that you are where you are supposed to be or you can begin to take action now to move to where you want to be. Most people have heard the expression, “It’s not the destination, it’s the journey that matters.” I disagree. Both things matter, both are crucially important when it comes to achieving your dreams. Your dream, achieving your dream is the destination. All the things you do along the way in order to achieve your dream are the journey. A journey is not important if you have no destination. At the same time, if you are wandering about with no destination in sight, the journey while entertaining may prove to be to be a waste of time. Success comes when the destination and journey are linked together.

Dream your dream, even if it is a seemingly impossible dream. But, don’t stop with the dreaming the impossible dream. Instead, take action now, move forward toward achieving your dream. Your dreams are precious and a treasure, but they something you need to use every day. Your dreams should not sit on a shelf to be admired from afar, never touched, lived or experienced.

In conclusion, it is magnificent to know you really can take action now and follow a dream. So, the question for you this magnificent day is are your dreams real or are they china in a closet?

  • Yes! I recently revived my personal dream. I came to the realization that I am worthy of it. I see other people doing what I want to do and I DECIDED that I can achieve my dream, and that it has nothing to do with anyone else giving me permission or making it happen for me. It's about believing in myself and then doing the work from that mindset. And I feel excited!

  • Oh, I use my China and crystal. Now I need to use that same principle to follow my dreams. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • Even a small step toward your dream is better than doing nothing. I wouldn't even know what to do with fine china. LOL

  • Love the comparison to fine china. Go for it, chip it if necessary!

  • Dreams are just reality that hasnt happened yet!

  • I love this post! You can hope & dream & wish for things....but unless you have a plan and actually take the steps it takes (and often it's years of baby steps chugging along), then all your dreams will be is just that...a dream.

  • This is something so important for all of us to remember. Following our dreams requires more than just dreaming the day away...it requires action!

  • I am always dreaming and try hard to follow them

  • I'm working hard at accomplishing one of my dreams - i graduate college next spring!

  • my dream is and always has been for my son to live a happy and healthy life
