If you want success, ‘Don’t be unapologetic about your ambitions’

When you have designed your dreams and are ready to work for your dreams you get very enthusiastic and you start sharing your dream with everybody you meet in your friend circle, relations and others. You should actually not disclose your dream to anybody. Why? It loses energy. People start reacting and their comments affect you. However, if you already have, then don’t be apologetic to it.

Now it is better for you to work on your dream silently and let your success alone make the noise. Naysayers will also try to deflate your dreams. Don’t let anybody steal your dreams. Eat it, sleep it, drink it, get obsessed with it, the more you focus on it your dream expands.

Your burning desire should be so intense that the question of whether it will happen or not changes to when it will happen. End that uncertainty whether it will happen or not. Only those dreams become a reality which are full of burning desire. Visualize it, live in the eyes of your mind like a pregnant would-be mother, visualizes her child in the actual world. She starts knitting gloves, socks, head cap for her little child even before he comes in this world. She buys cribs and other paraphernalia for her coming child. She doesn’t have even an iota of doubt in her mind about her dream of becoming a reality.

Then why people have doubt about your dreams not becoming a reality. It is because they have not decided finally about realizing their dreams.

Your dreams were included in your ticket to this life.

Once a passenger boarded a sea liner for a long journey of 6 days. He didn’t have enough money to buy the ticket with food. So he thought that he will buy the ticket without food charges and buy some peanuts from outside to save the money. So he bought some peanuts from the market as his food for the 6 days and after buying the ticket at the port boarded the sea liner carrying peanuts packets stealthily with him so that people or Captain may not see them. He went straight to his cabin and, during his journey, hardly came out for anything except two-three times at night. 

When the sea liner reached the destination he tried to escape quickly out of the liner but the captain was standing at the gate to bid farewell to all passengers. So the captain accosted him, “Goodbye, do come again. By the way, where were you, I didn’t see you aboard for all the six days. Not even in the dining hall.” The passenger sheepishly told him that he didn’t have enough money for buying food on the sea liner and for the sake of saving money he had brought peanuts with him and so he didn’t go to the dining hall for all the six days. The captain laughed and told him,” You should have talked to me at least once, I would have told you that the dining charges were included in the price of the ticket”.

Robert Schuller says that dreams come from heaven. So your dream is God-given to you and it was meant for you only. You took birth with the dream included in your life. So it is your own thing. You have already paid for it. Won’t you like to avail the facility which you have already paid for? You should claim it like your birthright otherwise you will have to repent like the person in the sea liner. 

You are on a journey on this sea liner(your life here is like a guest in this world).

Why you want to live your life with peanuts(mediocrity, despair)

when you have paid for gourmet foods(dream included with this life).

Just come out of your cabin(conformity box thinking) and 

ask the captain about food( learn from successful people about how to succeed), 

Take(self serve) your gourmet food in the plates(take action for realizing your dream) and 

have your gourmet food(fruits of success) 

on the sea liner(in the world). 

Above is your story, in short,  on this planet. 

Have faith in your creator and start working for your dream today only.

Victor Frankl, an Austrian neurologist, and psychiatrist as well as a survivor of Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, Kaufering and Türkheim; Nazi concentration camps, has said,

“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life… Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it .”

Decide today, what is your dream, and work on it to realize it before you are handed over your return ticket to your creator.
