One of the things we are super passionate about is dreaming. Dreaming about a world where poverty does not exist. Where all people are seen as equal. Where people can feel safe and secure in their homes and countries. Where all people have access to food, healthcare, sanitation and education.
We dream of the day when all ordinary people step out and pursue their wildest desires and passions. When ordinary people do extraordinary things to help others. When ordinary people join together to change the world with the simplest of actions. When ordinary people believe that they can.
Today is the day to start:
You may think that a million other people have the same dream... but how many of those have stepped out and actually done them? Be confident in what you are capable of achieving. The hardest part is that very first step. Let today be the day you take it with confidence in YOU!
We all need our people, our tribe, our village. When the going gets tough and you are having trouble motivating yourself, get those people around you! You need people that will support you, encourage you and keep you accountable. It’s easy enough to say you’ve had enough (...trust me, those days will come) and you’re ready to quit, but that’s where you need those people that are not afraid to give you a hard but honest word to call you up.
You cannot succeed without failure. There is no hard and fast rule to success, except for perseverance. In fact, failure should be “not doing anything”. By stepping out and taking plans to action. that already IS success. Do NOT let the thought of failure scare you into not starting, for how will you know unless you give it a go? At the end of the day, do you want to regret having tried and “failed” or regret that you never did anything about making your dreams reality?
Your dreams are achievable. They are within reach! This quote by Muhammad Ali sums it up perfectly:
"Impossible is just a word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."
