Follow Your Dreams – 6 Undisputed Reasons Why You Should Start Now

by Misbaudeen Adeshina


Have you ever heard the quote: “Follow your Dreams“. I’m pretty sure we all have. It reminds me of the saying, “If you don’t learn to what your potential is, you may always remain an aspiring student.”

If you do follow your dream, there is absolutely no guarantee that you will be successful and if you do, perhaps that potential will, and most likely will fill you with joy.

You may believe that it takes a lot of time and energy to follow your dreams. The good news is that this is only true to a certain extent.

It may take you a long time before you finally achieve your dreams. As long as you are willing to persevere, there is absolutely nothing that can stop you from making your dreams come true.

You can do it! You can build the life that you’ve always wanted.

But you’ve got to be willing to keep going until you have reached your goals. That’s where the challenge comes in. If you quit trying to make your dreams come true, you’re giving up before you even begin.

So I would like to offer this piece of advice. Continue dreaming, but quit trying so that one day when you wake up, you can say to yourself, “I did it!”

Now you may be asking, “Why would I want to wait one day longer?” Why wait one day to follow my dreams? Why not make it part of your daily ritual to read a chapter of a book written by someone you admire? Or to attend an event that is designed to help you achieve your dreams?

There is always something that will help you reach your goal, even when it seems impossible.


6 Reasons why you should Follow Your Dreams

Here are some reasons why you should start following your dreams and actualize them.


Your Reasons Are Valid

Your reasons why you should follow your dream are as valid as the reasons that anyone else might have for following their own.

As a matter of fact, they might even be more valid. That is because your goals and dreams are the very things that you strive to become or do better than others.

Following your dreams will get you a much better and more meaningful life for all in that single process.

The most important thing is to have the courage to follow your dreams. In other words, don’t ever sit on the edge of your goal. It doesn’t matter if you never dreamed of becoming a millionaire; never stop long enough to think that you might actually get there.

You need to keep going no matter what. And it is important to keep going with all the strength that you can muster.

Life is short

There are too many people who act like life is too short, they think that because they live so long they have accomplished everything they possibly can, and they should just quit.

I don’t believe in that at all, life is short, and there are lots of opportunities out there for you to pursue.

If you truly do want to follow your dream and make it come true, then there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t. The key here is believing that you can achieve it and knowing what it is that you need to do in order to achieve it.

I believe that the secret to being successful is to follow your dream and living as though you already have achieved it.

In order for this to work, you will need to set some goals for yourself. When you set those goals, you need to write them down and keep them in a place where you can see them every day.

Also, when you start a creative project or something you want to do from the inside out, you will need to be aware of the price tag on success.

Yes, success is expensive, but if you live life with the price tag attached to your success, then you will never live life fully.

Most importantly you must stay connected to your dream because without it you will never really live the life you want.

My suggestion is to start following your dream and also making a living from the work that you create, it will only take you a year or two to achieve both of these things, but the important part is that you have to take action. You must make decisions to follow your dream.


Stay Focus

Dreams help you focus on what is important to you and on making changes in your life that will make a difference.

As you look at your life, do you think all of the things you’ve been working on are important? Are there any major or minor things holding you back from living the life you dream about?

Dreams can give you the answers you seek to help you with the issues in your life.


Follow your dreams to achieve happiness. Because your goals and dreams are exactly what you want to be or accomplish, which gives you an intense sense of purpose and meaning.

Your dreams are something you truly are extremely passionate about. By following your dreams, you will become a much happier and better person overall in that one simple step.

Why follow your past when you can actually do what you love, and much better?

When you follow your dreams, your subconscious mind will start connecting those dreams with various positive aspects of life.

Whenever you are thinking about your dream, you will constantly be thinking about the various steps you need to take to get there.

As you follow your dream, as you think about your future, your past, and anything else that crosses your mind, you will discover incredible possibilities that can lead to happiness in your life.

Just one example – When you were five years old, you started to get really interested in horses. After a while, you started to understand why it’s important to learn how to ride a horse, and how to go on treks, trail rides, and so forth.

The more you did research about horses, the more you came to realize that there are many times throughout your life where you will use horses for transportation, for leisure, and even for training.

This is exactly how pursuing your dream life will make you happy. Your future will be exactly as you envision it.

You can begin by just pursuing one small goal here or there until you feel that your whole life is filled with fun and excitement, and you begin to wonder why you haven’t done this sooner. Chances are, you already have!

Pursuing your goals will help you enjoy your current situation and build the kind of happy life you’ve always wanted.


Become a Better Person

One of the reasons why you should follow your dreams is because it will bring you closer to your inner happiness and fulfillment.

When you are looking at your Dreams, what do you see? The person who is always trying their hardest, the person who has the attitude of never giving up, the person who works hard and knows that they will fail but never give up on their dreams.

Do you see the person who posses all these traits? Yes, you do! And if you don’t then you should start doing it right now.

One of the most important reasons why you should follow your dreams would be because you will be able to live a better life and become a better person.

If you have always wanted to be rich, then by all means pursue it.

If you have always wanted to be a great athlete, then train every day and get tough.

If you have always wanted to be a great painter, but never found the courage, then learn the art.

Pursuing your dreams will provide you with enough joy and fulfillment to make it worth your while.

Following your dream will give you lasting happiness. We all know that life isn’t fair, but when it comes to dreams, we are given the opportunity to choose our destiny and make the most of it.

So many people waste their whole lives working for someone else, building a house for someone else, doing things for someone else only to have to wake up one day and say “Why did I waste so much time here?”

Wouldn’t you love to wake up every morning and know that you are making your dream into your reality? Now you can! Dream bigger, and make your dreams become your reality.


Financial Security

They always say that the journey is the reward, but the most obvious reward when you follow your dreams is financial security.

By following your own dreams, you will not only start following the path towards financial security but you will also start to pursue the path towards personal happiness.

Why? Well, financial security will allow you to spend your life with ease. With this, you can buy a house, afford education for your children and even start to follow your passions.



Dreams are more real than we think. You have probably heard the saying, “what really lies beneath the surface?” If you want to discover what lies beneath the surface, you have to look deep inside yourself and ask yourself, “What do I love to do?”

Once you figure out what it is that you love to do, it is very likely that you can figure out how to turn that into a profitable profession.

And if you have the determination to follow your dreams, you can turn that into an incredibly successful life.

What are the reasons why you think you should follow your dreams? Share the reasons with us and let’s stay motivated.
