We all have goals and aspirations that we’ve set for ourselves to one day hopefully reach. Those goals are what pushes us everyday to work harder to continue our journey no matter how bumpy the road to success can get sometimes. I’ve always been a huge believer in the ”Work hard. Dream big.” philosophy and can’t imagine myself settling for a hint less than the dreams that keep me up so late at night, but still make me shiver of excitement in my sleep.
I’m only human and sometimes my crazy ”let’s change the world” ambitions, easily cloud my judgment and get in the way of what I should be doing at the moment. I start loosing focus on my short term goals as I get ahead of myself with how I can be the next Michelle Obama of the blogging world instead of concentrating on my upcoming finals which is FYI my current mood, haha.
Now, I truly believe that there’s no such thing as setting standards too high or having dreams too big. I think if my dreams don’t scare me enough to make every inch of my body shiver than they’re simply not big enough for me. I see my life as a pursuit of what sets my soul on fire, but I’ve learned the hard way that it has to kindle with a spark before inflaming into the full colossal explosion.
As I found myself focussing too much on the end goal instead of the present commitments, I realized that it only dragged me down to think so unrealistically and abroadly. It’s smarter to think that the road to success has to be a step by step process to the bigger and brighter aims. The hardest part of the journey is to stay patient and to never lose hope. Even in the dim light, our ambitions are the source of clarity that guide us like a flashlight through the darkest of caves. Yet the path is ours to trace. Just have faith and trust the process.
