How to Fulfill Your Dreams

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

What does it take to fulfill a dream? As a recent college graduate, you may be envisioning the long hours you spent buried in physics books while sitting on a hard-wooden library chair, hands fiercely scribbling notes in anticipation of the next exam. Perhaps you recall the months it took to complete your portfolio while you agonized over how to breathe life into your presentation. The aroma of coffee wafting through the room may still bring you back to the late nights you spent perched on a worn couch studying for finals, flipping through pages and study guides with your highlighter, intent on not missing anything. These memories represent hard work, time you put in to earn your degree and prepare for your future. This was the first step in fulfilling your dreams and now it’s time to ask, “what’s next?”


Life’s a Journey

If life were a road trip, it would certainly be an interesting one. It can be the road trip where your data runs out, Google Maps stops working and you end up on the wrong freeway or, it can be a journey with a clear destination that’s easy to see and exciting to reach. As you consider what your dreams and goals are, where you want to go and what you want to accomplish, it’s important to think about the things that will make your journey easier or what will make it possible for you to ultimately achieve your dreams.

On the road of life, unlimited data may not be so important but having a clear direction is. When you think about your future, watch the movie of your life. Where do you see yourself? What are you surrounded by? What makes you happy? These answer to these questions is the key to realizing the dreams you have for your life because a life, is far more than a career.
