MOVE TOWARDS YOUR DREAM
CATHERINE S. ANICETE
When children want something from their parents, they ask for it either through a request or a demand. And sometimes as young as they are, they can already devise a strategy in order to force their parents to give what they want. Some children would throw tantrums when the parents do not approve of their wish and still insist of doing so until they get what they want. Some children transform into actors and give their best performance to their parents so as to gain their favor and be able to acquire what they are yearning for. Children somehow learn that through their own approaches, they are able to reach their goals. Though most of the time they are very persistent even without knowing the consequences of their actions.
Many of us have life goals that are either short or long term goals. These goals are our personal objectives in attaining what we want in life. As mature individuals, we make plans that would help us accomplish our goals that we have already set in our life. These plans are not just any ordinary plans but these are intelligent procedures that we have devised to make sure that we achieve our goals in the timeline that we have set.
As we work on our dreams, these are the things that we care about, we make certain that we do everything in our power to achieve them and making sure that we do not affront anybody in doing so.
Once we are confident enough on the dreams that we have in mind, it is already automatic that we have a vision in life that helps to push in achieving them. But being pushed towards our goals is not enough. Rather, the vision that we have set should pull us to move forward in achieving our dreams and when this happens, we can passionately work on them and as we do that, our work in achieving our dreams will feel effortless.
