Dream Big

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”

As a child what did you ever dream of being? Was it an actor, singer, rapper, writer, astronaut, dancer, president? What was the one thing that you knew in your heart you wanted to do with your life? For me I always wanted to have my own business. I didn’t want to work for anyone,  and have to work a “nine-to-five” schedule. I wanted freedom. Freedom to live my life the way I wanted and how I wanted, and in the process make tons of money. This dream was big, and to the average person beliefs, its unattainable. Most of us including myself,  did the normal thing, the mom and dad plan. Graduate high school, go to college, and find a steady job, and just exist. Let’s not just exist, let’s dream beyond the norm, and not only dream, but pursue those dreams with all our soul.

“You have to Dream Hard, Wish Big, and Chase after Your goals, because No One else is going to do it for You”

For me wanting my own business was a dream, and the faith I had in myself was so little I tossed the idea aside. I didn’t think I had what it took to become successful. I took my dream,  put it on a shelf, walked away and never looked back.  And for many years the only thing I was doing  in this world, was existing. I wasn’t living and I wasn’t happy. Dreams are scary, I’d be lying if I said they weren’t. Dreams are shaky, whether or not they will come true, is even scarier. However, nothing is impossible, and everything is possible.  Believe in your dreams and fight for your dreams, and your already half way there.


You want to be successful with your dreams, and goals. You will  have to  sacrifice, work hard, have faith, be patient, struggle with uncertainty, and sometimes failure. Most importantly you will have to fight for them. You will have to fight fear, self doubt, non believers, family, friends. Then on the other side there’s your dreams coming true.  So dream big, the scarier the better. And let nothing stand in your way of being the person you’ve always wanted to be. ” Every morning you have two choices, continue to sleep with your dreams, or wake up and chase them.” Which one will you choose tomorrow?
