As a child, I dreamed that I would become rich and travel to the cozy cities of Europe. But, being in the center of Barcelona, I did not feel the peculiarity of the moment. Everything happened consistently and even logically. My journey, which began in a small village, continued in the capital in an unexpected way for many. And all because I was not afraid to dream.
Successful graduation from school and passing the exams allowed me to enter a good university. Programming was surprisingly easy. Each profile exam ended with an excellent mark. The teachers were happy, but I began to doubt. The dreams I dreamed of as a child has vanished. I stopped thinking about traveling the world and, instead, filled out my resume and chose the future with the highest salary. Having got on the 'right' path, I got into the system with my own rules and with my ceiling. I realized that I was going in the wrong place and did not want to be in that place.
Growing up, they say to us: “Stop dreaming and live in the real world”. But the fact is that reality is not what surrounds us. We create reality for ourselves. Thinking, actions and ideas affect the perception of the world. The world is much more malleable than it seems. It has everything you need. We just have to take it.
“You believed you could do anything, anywhere, and become whoever you want when you grow up. And then they learned that all this is prohibited. You have been told that you need to grow up and stop dreaming, that you need to behave wisely and not set too high goals for yourself” – from the book ‘Be the Best Version of Yourself’.
It all started with the dream of finding a job as a programmer. I was 18. Then I realized that tomorrow's success is the result of today's efforts, and I used three summer months to develop my skills and already reached my goal in the winter. I was not too smart. I just wanted it and took it.
Every morning we are given a chance to become better and it would be foolish to miss it. Many people dream all their lives about things that are achieved by simple discipline. What are you dreaming about? Maybe you only need to take one step.
“Anxiety and doubts are overcome only by action, and the missed chance will remind you of yourself all your life” – from the article ‘The Moment's Thanks to Which You Live’.
Dream. The higher your bar, the higher you will be. You have to be able to dream. Many things about happiness are imposed on us. After all, it is very difficult to find true desires when it's easier to take someone else's. I also did this, and I still catch myself that some things that previously seemed desirable have become uninteresting. But those goals that have long been present in my life, every day I value more and more, because they are the real desires. Waking up and realizing that this is how you would like to live this day is priceless. Our life is getting shorter every minute, and isn't it given to us for happiness?
As you dream, remember to live in the present. After all, John Lennon was not mistaken when he said that life is what happens to you when you make plans for the future. After all, dreams are not goals, but rather landmarks. If everything went according to plan, life would be unbearably boring.
Life is just a moment. And only we can make it better. This way, moment by moment, life will find meaning on the way to the dream. If we do everything right, then at some point we will understand that dreams have come true, and every day brings joy. What is the right thing to do? Make a decision by listening to two voices: logic and intuition. Doubts arise at the moment of their disagreement with each other, but when they repeat something in unison, know that this is what you need. We should dream, live, and be ourselves. Everything is possible. Future is determined by the moments when it is difficult. Life will throw up obstacles to test how ready we are to master what we want. Life is ready to give you everything you need. If we are ready to take it, we should only go and get it.
