When you listen to a motivational speech or read a self-help book, you would often find phrases like -
"Follow your dreams"
"Don't stop dreaming until it comes true"
I find these sentences incomplete. I strongly believe that "Dreams won't work unless you do". Most of us get so busy in dreaming our future lives that we often forget that we would have to work hard to achieve what we are dreaming about.
Have you ever caught yourself daydreaming?
Lets be honest here for a minute,
Do you just make plans for the future?
Bring those plans into action to reach one step closer to your goal?
Most importantly are you a DREAMER or a DO-ER?
The dreamers stare at the sky busy creating their future plans and goals while wearing rosy tinted glasses. They talk about it endlessly, with their best friend or their mother and make vision boards which makes them feel good about themselves.
While this helps in keeping people on track and remind them back and again about their goals when things go downhill, they become so occupied in their own world that they fail to realize : "dreams don't come true just because you dream them."
You have to get your lazy ass out of your bed and your mind away from wandering again. You need to work hard and not get carried away again. You need to know the importance of time and forget what procrastination is.
Because while you're here making your vision board as pretty as possible and then watching T.V because you feel that you're now tired of too much work, there is someone out there in the world who is working that extra hour to improve on their skills.
Because while you're here laying down on the grass spending hours contemplating life, there is someone who is burning the midnight oil and working hard.
Because while you're here bragging about your goals to your mates in the bar and sipping cocktails, there is someone who is having a productive conversation and increasing their network.
I'll ask you the same question yet again: Are you a dreamer or a doer?
It's hard work that creates change. It's the hard work that make things happen.
