‘Vishwas, I decided to go on with my dreams,’ he wrote.
I smiled & thought about it for a while. How many people would have actually uttered these words in their lifetimes?
I bet the number would be abysmal. ‘This is the best line I have read in a long time! Congratulations! By deciding to follow your dreams, you have already won half the battle,’ I replied earnestly.
The same person had written to me weeks ago that he was getting depressed because of rejections. Back then, I had advised, ‘It’s part of the game. Learn & move on, you will be successful eventually. But work on your weaknesses.’
Today after many weeks, he had gained his confidence. ‘I read your articles on LinkedIn. You always inspire me. Thanks for that,’ he wrote
‘My words may have been a catalyst. But the real deal is already inside you. You only have to believe in yourself, but be smart about things,’ I told him.
I see so many who are afraid to follow their dreams. But they have immense potential. You only have one life. There is no point in doing something that you don’t love.
Dare to take risks & follow your dreams. But be practical, be streetsmart & focus on flawless execution. Perhaps one day, you can boldly say, ‘I decided to go on with my dreams!’
