Never Let Anyone Steal Your Dreams

by Andy Pitt on April 20, 2011

Never let anyone steal your dreams. If we are not supposed to live our dreams, then why dream at all? Unfortunately, most of us have been brought up with a fake notion of having to be “realistic”. However, what we do not realize is that everything that is real around us has been derived from dreams. So if this is the case, why do we continue to convince ourselves and our loved ones to be realistic, or at least what we perceive as realistic, instead of living our dreams?

Yes, the one answer that you will always get is that life is expensive, and therefore, what is more important is that you go out, get a job, and earn a living. Rather leave dreams for the night when you are sleeping, right? Is this truly what we were meant to do with our lives?

I want you to take a step back in time when you had your first “reality” check. All of a sudden, life was not so promising anymore, was it? As you remember this, take a closer look at what happened on that day and many occasions afterwards. You will realize that all of those “reality checks” came from people who really cared about you. How many times did they tell you to stop daydreaming and to face reality? A lot of them would tell you that the type of dream you are looking to live would almost be impossible simply because of the challenges and competition that would get in your way. Then there were those that felt that you had to live their dreams simply because they couldn’t live their own.

It is amazing how we are always told to watch out for our enemies, because those are the ones that do not want to see us succeed in life, and will do anything to steal our dreams in order to stop us from stepping ahead of them. Who would have ever thought that the actual culprits were our loved ones. The truth is that they only did this because they cared. Their intentions were to help us. They did not realize that what they were really doing was destroying our souls.

Never let anyone steal your dreams. If you look around, you will see a huge array of the most amazing things that humans have accomplished. It is understandable how one might have believed that these accomplishments are impossible to achieve; yet, here they are, beautiful and real. Think about it; every one of these amazing accomplishments came from ideas, and ideas in essence are dreams. If every one of those people decided not to accomplish their dreams simply because people around them convents them that it was impossible, where would we be today?
