If You Don’t Build Your Dreams, Somebody Else Will

Do you dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur? What are you doing about it? If you don’t do anything, nothing will come out of it. You won’t reach your goals.

You must take action today. Urgency is a big factor in success. Even successful entrepreneurs recognize this. In fact, they know that if they don’t act now, somebody else will do it.

If you let the chance pass of not building your dreams right away, you’d see somebody building theirs.

My first thoughts when I read the quote above, “should have been, would have been, could have been.” These questions represent the regret we would feel when we don’t do anything about our dreams. I think the feeling of regret is worse than the feeling of failing.

When you fail, you know you have tried to do something, but regret creates a need to turn back time to grab that one chance. But truth is, nobody can turn back time.

So take the opportunity once it presents itself, or better yet, make that opportunity for yourself in order to reach your goals.

It may seem easier to just let others build their dreams. Chasing your dreams and achieving your goals are harder, but that is where success lies. Could you imagine a modern world where Thomas Edison stopped trying to perfect a light bulb?

Making things happen for yourself does not just give you a gratifying feeling, it gives your life a purpose, a direction, and the strong desire to keep moving forward. The world only moves forward, so why should you remain stuck?
