This photo caught my eye one morning whilst I was walking through the underground walkway at Perth Railway Station. There are a series of photos along with statements made by these subjects displayed on the walls of this walkway for the public to view and read.
The one above of Tony particularly stood out for me. I guess we all have dreams and those dreams can change over the space of a lifetime, however, many of them are also forgotten or just not acted on. Time waits for no-one and before you know it we reach an age where, like Tony, our dreams are replaced by regrets.
So how can we go about ensuring our dreams become reality? Firstly, we need to determine whether we can make our dream a reality. The best way to do this is to share our dream with others but ensure you keep your filter on as some people can be quite negative about things they can't see or imagine themselves, so choose who you decide to share with.
Work on a plan. Without a plan, dreams tend to be forgotten. Often the best dreams take time to crystalize, Ensure that you don't rush your planning and be realistic about what you can achieve. Sort out your priorities and always remain flexible.
Take action. If this step becomes a problem, work out why and if need be, find a mentor or share your plan with others who will keep you accountable. Personally, procrastination is my biggest challenge to overcome whenever I am faced with acting on my dreams. Finding someone who can keep you accountable is invaluable.
