Mal wieder bin ich etwas am ausprobieren und überlege meine Posts wieder in Englisch zu schreiben. Das hängt auch etwas mit dem neuen Projekt zusammen, von dem ich hier (hoffentlich) bald berichten kann. Fingers crossed
A few days ago, I made an Insta Story (in German) about how excited I am to be a part of this (still so) secret project. (click here to get to my account). Once I am allowed to reveal the big project, you will totally be able to draw the connection to the blogpost I am about to write. I am so excited to share this with you and I hope you find it as exciting as I do!
Even though you don’t know much about this project right now, I believe that this post will be helpful for everybody who wants to rock 2018! … (and not get stuck in 2017. Lest hier, warum ich noch manchmal im Jahr 2016 feststecke)
In today’s blogpost I will be talking about how you always have to keep working for your dreams so you can make them a reality rather sooner than later.
I know, I know, I know. Dreams don’t work unless you do is one of these quotes that you read basically everywhere. Everyone is using it. Maybe you have read it so often that you have already gotten sick of it. Personally, I have found myself in the situation of not being able to make at least one of my dreams become a reality for the longest time. I worked really hard for those dreams. But nah. My life, faith or wathever was just working against it. I felt defeated, discouraged and actually really sad. Everyone seemed to be making one dream after another become a reality. And then there was me. You know that feeling, when you start feeling like a failure? That is how I felt. Those quotes are lies! They are not true! …. that is what I thought.
Now look at me. I am one of those people telling you about how those quotes are actually true asf. The moment I became the confirmation for this secret project everything started to make sense. All the dreams that didn’t come true before, now I know why!
I totally get it. Understanding why certain dreams don’t happen in reality is hard – especially if you have put your heart and soul into it. We don’t understand it, because in that moment we tend to only see what didn’t happen. We only see one small puzzle piece of the big puzzle that is called our life. If we were able to widen our gaze and see the bigger picture, we wouldn’t dwell on that one puzzle piece not fitting into our puzzle. We wouldn’t mind that one dream not coming true. That doesn’t mean that your dreams weren’t big enough, that you didn’t work hard enough or that it just was a really unrealistic dream. No! It simple means that this wouldn’t have led you to where you are supposed to be going in life. This dream was just leading you nowhere.
I have to admit: I hate when people tell me that. Especially when I am still kind of licking my wounds and being sad about saying goodbye to a heartfelt dream. But damn, it is so f* true
Long story short: No matter how often you fail. No matter how discourage you feel. Keep on working for your dreams. If one dream fails, take on the next dream of yours. Develop new dreams. Just because one dream didn’t become a reality doesn’t mean the others won’t as well. But if you stop working for your dreams because of one failure, you will totally regret it later on in your life.
Look at me: if I would’ve given up after my failed dreams, I wouldn’t be talking to you about this secret project.
Always keep in mind:
Dreams actually don’t work unless you do.
Maybe it is the wrong dream you’re working on right now. You just don’t know it yet. That is ok. Life will tell you at some point and redirect you.
You probably won’t understand it right away and hate the fact that your dream will never become a reality.
Try to see it as a way of life giving you a better direction and a new perspective.
And most importantly: don’t give up working for your other dreams or new dreams. Because: dreams don’t work unless you do! At some point they will become a reality.
