Let Yourself Dream Again




A gentle reminder today that your adversaries do not have the final say on your success or what happens to you during your lifetime. Often times you'll notice that just as you're finally on the road to achieving your dreams, someone will try to distract or discourage you. Try to remember who the comments are coming from, the negative ones will never come from the mouths of those who are achieving wild success and experiencing joy in their own life.

I hope this inspires someone today. Nothing pains me more than seeing someone muster up the courage to achieve something great in their life and having that dream squashed by someone who hasn't even achieved the kind of success they'd like in their own life. 

Remember that others like to keep those close to them at their level. If you are moving on up, don't be surprised if you feel a struggle to not get dragged down by unmotivated daydreamers who refuse to put feet to their faith and take action. Sometimes it's uncomfortable but we must leave others behind if we truly want to move to bigger and better things. Like rocks in a backpack; discouraging friends, colleagues, strangers and even family members can weigh us down but only if we let them!

Classy women often walk alone. Read this quote from a post I wrote last fall. It's a good reminder that if you feel alone at times on your journey to achieving your dreams or fulfilling your calling, you're on the right track. After all, going out on a limb is where all the best fruit is!

Have you ever had others try to squash your dreams? Were you able to push through and silence your nay-sayers?

  3. Karla, you most certainly managed to inspire me. I was just having this type of situation the other day with a friend who decided not to take a PhD (although a year ago she really wanted to) and talking bad of the perspectives of career if one does not enter the industry right away. Of course, I felt kind of stupid for pursuing my dream and staying in the academia, but then again one should follow one's dreams. You make it sound so much worth it... And today I feel much less stupid :-) Thank you

  4. Karla I can so relate to this. But I read somewhere that "the higher up the mountain you go, the less people you can take with you as the path gets narrower". It makes perfect sense. Now I am happy to walk up the mountain with just Hubs.
    I was told years ago by a coach that a life without a dream is just an existence. I think it's true to a degree ;-)

  5. @Kelly- I just know there is a dream inside you, deep down. It's just a matter of time and you'll be chasing it down! Hugs.

    @Dorina-You're Welcome! Thank you for sharing your thoughts and current situation with me. I'm so glad the post was timely. Never feel stupid for pursuing your dreams, they are worth it! :)

    Thanks @Kate! I'm glad you found it inspiring. :)

    @Vanessa-Oh, I love that quote! You and I sound a lot alike! While I have friends that set goals and are dreamers, I love having the support of my hubby and achieving our dreams together. I like to think of us as Team Davis. :D Yes, there is such a difference between truly living with passion and just merely existing.
