DON’T CAVE!

There’s a story about an old donkey that fell into a well. His master knew it would be difficult to retrieve him. He also knew the poor animal didn’t have much life left in him anyway, so he called his neighbors to help him bury the donkey alive. Each continued to shoveldirt over him to complete the task.

The old donkey wasn’t ready to give up, so with each shovel load dumped upon him, he’d shake it off and take a step up. Eventually he reached the top of the well. His perseverance paid off. He didn’t let the dirt overtake him.

There are many times in our lives when the burden seems too heavy and we begin to cave to the pressure. It’s not as easy as it sounds to merely go with the flow and step up and out of depression. Those feelings are real and can wring…

The Universe Doesn’t Give You What You Ask for with Your Thoughts; It Gives You What You Demand with Your Actions – Dr. Steve Maraboli

Our thoughts start the process, but it’s our actions that force the universe to respond – it’s only through taking action that we can bring our dreams into reality.  Know that the universe has already placed around you the tools required to construct your dream, but it has left all the responsibility of building it up to you.  It’s up to you to decide whether your dreams are worth the time, effort, and sacrifice required to make them real. 

Remember, everything you see around you every day at some point was just a dream in somebody’s mind.  Without their willingness to take action to try to develop their visions, your current world and way of life would look and function completely different. 

Chasing our dreams allows us the opportunity to make an impact in the world and to live our best life. Decide now that your dreams too deserve to be made real.  Develop a plan for bringing them to reality, trust in yourself and your abilities, then get to work.

No longer do you have to sentence your dreams to a life stuck wallowing in the purgatory of your mind.  Bring them out into the world, so that we may all benefit from their creation.
