Know your purpose, live your dream and never brag to people about it.

You have this dream every day. You imagine this dream and it makes you happy because it is a dream that will change your life for the better.

Do not deny yourself the opportunity to live your dream – life can be what you make of it.

As you wake up in the morning, you begin meditating on the dream and you see the dream become a reality. After a few minutes, fears enter your mind and tell you that the dream is not achievable.

Your experience quickly reminds you of the things you have tried before, and have failed at.

It taps you on the shoulder and says: If you have failed before, what will make you succeed this time? Turn around and tell it you failed, because it was not the time to achieve.

Dreams die the day you stop dreaming. If you fail to achieve, it does not mean it is the end; rather another opportunity to try with new, innovative ideas.

If you start thinking about the people who have failed before, you think you will fail too. You are not them, and you do not think alike.

Everything starts with a dream, all the things you see and touch. Your car, the house you stay in, the laptop you use at work, the cell phone in your pocket – all were someone’s dream. You do not realise it, because you bought it to use, but do not forget about how it was designed or made.

There are no promises that your dream will be easy to achieve. A dream is a risk, you can achieve it or you can fail. But there will always be something that you will learn.

You will experience new things and open doors which you never thought you would open. Those doors will open new opportunities for you and your life will never be the same.

A vehicle drives through potholes and has to overcome speed humps, but it still reaches its desired destination with the driver in charge.

The driver might brag and tell people how fast he drove, but the car will keep quiet and will not tell anyone how fast it is or complain about the long trip. It will keep quiet, because its purpose is to transport people.

Know your purpose in life, live your dream and do not brag about it.
