“Going back to your childhood is one way to make your adult life more prosperous.” – Ivy Prosper
When I talk about going back to your childhood I’m referring to the way we all used to think. We all had such confidence and belief in ourselves and in our dreams. When I speak to young people and pose the question of “What do you want to be when you grow up?” the eagerness and the excitement that shines in their eyes is amazing. I’m sure if the same were asked of us as adults we wouldn’t be so eager to answer the question.
Children are not afraid to pursue something. They are not afraid to say “My dream is to….” As we get older we become so easily tainted and jaded from life experiences, failures and distractions. The key is to remember that all of our experiences are what make us better equipped to receive our dreams. When we fail, we should see that as opportunities to learn what not to do next time.
Don’t be afraid to dream. Approach your life just as you did when you were a child. If there is something you want to do take the time to figure out what needs to be done in order to achieve it.
Start your 2013 by dreaming a dream the way you did as a child.
