Dreams can come true IF you know the secret.
So…wanna know the secret?
How Can Dreams Come True?
It’s in this quote from Mark Twain:
Dreams can come true, but there is a secret. They are realized through the magic of persistence, determination, commitment, passion, practice, focus, and hard work. They happen a step at a time manifested over years, not weeks.
According to Twain, the secret to success requires:
Persistence. No matter what obstacles you face – and you will face obstacles – you endure and push through. The dream must be worth persisting through the challenges.
Determination. No matter how hard it is or how long it takes, you are determined to make it happen.
Commitment. A dream isn’t worth much if you’re not fully committed to it. Again, no matter how hard it is or how long it takes, you are committed.
Passion. You have a deep belief in your dream. You live by conviction. You tell others about your dream. You can’t help it! That’s the passion required to make your dreams come true.
Practice. As cliche as the saying is, practice makes perfect. Without practice, how can a dream become reality? And if practice isn’t required, is it really a dream?
Focus. Many things can distract us from achieving our dreams. Other tasks, tempting shortcuts, or an alternative dream that doesn’t require as much work.
Hard work. The best things in life often come with the most work. As much as we may want an easy and instant path, life just doesn’t work that way. If you really want to pursue your dreams, you have to be willing to put in the sweat equity.
All these actions are easy to do. Yet they are also easy not to do. And that’s why so few people achieve their dreams. But now you know the secret to success. And when you think about it, it really isn’t a secret at all. It just requires a little bit of time and hard work.
