Being with your perfect husband or wife? Having the perfect family? Living on the beach or up in the mountains?
Working three days a week? Losing fifty pounds? Having a pain-free life? Creating a cardboard arcade? World peace?
Whatever it is …
Are you pursuing your dreams?
I hope so, because I can’t imagine a world without dreamseekers.
Not only that, but your health depends on it.
Pursue Dreams to Be Healthy
Your dreams are a reflection of who you are.
Being true to yourself gives your mind levity and allows you to go to sleep each night, knowing you showed up today exactly as you were meant to.
Following your dreams is a necessity to a healthy life, allowing the stress of a conformed life to fall to the wayside.
We all know of a person, perhaps a family man, with a wife and kids at home to support, struggling to make ends meet, who died in his 40’s of a heart attack.
Was it worth it? Hustling just to make another dollar? Yes, if this victim was pursuing his dreams.
But I’d bet that he conformed to society’s pressures and was not the type that should be working as much as he did.
Because your dreams talk to your heart too. They tell you that your efforts are exactly in the right place and will be rewarded for your courage by your dreams manifesting in reality.
Enter: Caine and His Arcade
Caine is a 9 year old boy who created a cardboard arcade in East Los Angeles.
He didn’t have very many customers (count: zero) in the beginning of his dream pursuit.
But he continued to build: arcade soccer, claw machines, with tickets, fun passes, prizes, and all the rest.
And finally, his dream became a reality.
Watch the ten minute video below.
I hope it inspires you to remember your dreams. Life’s too short to forget them.
What do you dream of?
