Chase Your Dreams

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Laozi

Dreams dare to exist before the path to their attainment is made clear.

Fear of failure is a mental obstacle. Those who overcome fear achieve success.

Fear of failure is overcome by humility, the laying down of pride. There is no need to succeed on the first attempt. Not even on the final attempt.

The journey is the reward. Take this journey without expectations.

Empty the mind of expectations so it can experience discoveries.

Like a child, when every encounter is new, there is no fear. This is why children learn the most and adults stick to what they know. In these young minds there is no expectation of failure; there is no fear of it. The expectations of the old are limitations; clinging to mildly successful methodologies as they feel safer than the unknown.

Be bold, chase your dreams. When failure comes, let it excite your mind with a fascination on how to improve your next attempt.

Discovery is the fuel of innovation. It is the token reward to continue.

There is no greater joy than to learn something new.

There is no greater regret than to not have tried.

Mistakes are guidance markers for the next attempt. Do not fear them.

Celebrating the successes of legends while forgetting their failures misleads young dreamers to believe that the pathway to success is without struggle.

Anything worth achieving was attained at great sacrifice. This is its value.

If it were too easy it would not be precious, it would not be desirable.

Chase your dreams and you will find your treasures. What is dreamed about is treasured.

Those who dream of far away places, treasure the journey. For what is near is not as desirable.

Those who dream of riches, treasure what is difficult to obtain. For what they have is not as desirable.

Those who dream of achievement, treasure struggle. For what they have achieved was too easy.

Some dreams are unobtainable. Such as mirages and the end of the rainbow. These dreams are best avoided.

Goals that are not clearly defined are best avoided.
