Do you constantly utter these statements such as maybe, someday or if I had done or not done this?

These are clear signs that you have been attacked by a dream killer. Individuals who have done extraordinary things are ordinary people with extraordinary ambition.

They chose to be different, even in face of adversity. If you consider your limitations and cynical opinions from your close circle of friends, you will abandon your dreams.

By @Comic24Derick

Maybe you once shared a dream with one of your friends and you got a long list of people who have tried it before and failed. 

By the time you walk away, you feel guilt for sharing your ideas. Stay alert. Your associates might be the biggest dream killers.

Alone, you begin to convince yourself “I am not good enough,” “I can’t do it,” “I am poor to be great.” By now, the negative comments are becoming part of you. Self-doubt creeps in. And you are afraid to dream again.

You add procrastination to the equation, and you defer the dream because you think you are still young. Slowly, your imaginations vanish, and they become a wish. When life doesn’t match your dreams, you believe you have failed.

My life dreams

Without Jesse Owens, dreams could have had a completely different meaning. Surrounded by rampant racial bigotry, the American track and field athlete was motivated to defy the world, clinching four gold medals in the 1936 Olympic Games.

For his feat, he was recognized in his lifetime as “perhaps the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history.”

He went on to say: “We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.”

Dreams occur to everyone, and he was to become an athletics legend. And he did. His willpower was infectious and he translated it into a reality. Life will throw every negative thing at you from everywhere. 

Only a determined person can set goals. More effort is required when you are disadvantaged the same as Owens.

After his death, Jimmy Carter saluted him. “Perhaps no athlete better symbolized the human struggle against tyranny, poverty, and racial bigotry.” Even in death, your dreams will bring you fame.

Don’t be blinkered, be realistic

“All men dream, but not equally,” writer T. E. Lawrence wrote. “Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.”

While everyone is free to have a dream, some people have unlimited thoughts. They are big dreamers. At first, dreams are just imagination and ideas. 

The difference is in the implementation of the dream for it to become physical. Those who put their ideas into action will make it because and see it blossom into greater things.

There is no right or wrong dream

Your dreams might be too big, or scary to be accomplished in your lifetime. But all the same, keep dreaming that you will make it. 

When you plan to do something, critics will tell you otherwise. Self-doubt creeps in, and that is expected. However, a quote by an American actor sought to defy such thoughts.

“Dream as if you’ll live forever,” said James Dean. “Live as if you’ll die today.” In life, there are no special reasons or genuine reasons to suspend your plans. 

Ignore the negative voice and maintain the momentum. Dean outlived his statement above. He remains the only actor to be nominated twice posthumously.

The three ingredients

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act but also dream; not only plan but also believe.” – Anatole France.

For an idea to become a reality, you need to invest time, plan carefully on how you are going to achieve it. Preparation is important because it reveals practical timelines on how you can achieve it. 

This involves research, learning, and looking for a mentor if there is a need. In addition to planning, you need to trust that it can be done.

Fight your way to the top

Mike Tyson represents the epitome of modern-day dreamers. At a tender age, he punched his way to the boxing heavyweight title. 

“I’m a dreamer,” said Tyson, who still holds the record as the youngest boxer ever to clinch the title. “I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.”

At the onset of his career in 1985, aged only 18, Tyson was hungry for success. His subsequent fights, mostly knockouts, proved he dreamed beyond his age or background.

People who reach great heights are people with big hearts, a persevering attitude, and are willing to take a risk, even with their lives to become great. Along the way, you will falter, but your earlier determination keeps you going.

How are dream killers identified?

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?'” – George Bernard Shaw.

There are two kinds of dreamers: those who want to know the cause, reason, or purpose to fulfill their vision. The second group, represented by Shaw believed they can do it against the odds. 

This group consists of risk-takers. They are prepared to fail but move on. And they don’t need a cause to make a bold move.

There is safety in numbers

Yoko Ono attained fame through the support of her late husband, in addition to what John Lennon achieved with the Beatles. “A dream you dream alone is only a dream,” Ono said. “A dream you dream together is reality.”

Follow other dreamers

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” – Mark Twain.

There might be more pessimists in your life than positive thinkers. When someone downplays your idea, he is probably scared of it and doesn’t deserve your attention.

Know whom you share your plans with. It’s not everyone who will appreciate it and give you good advice. However, when you get a good listener, you must appreciate their input.
