We all have dreams… but what does it take to REALLY pursue them? And what are any of us willing to give up in order to live our lives in a truly extraordinary manner? Comfort, perhaps? Or going against the vision others may have of us? And what’s the ultimate consequence for NOT going for it?
I don’t really want to find out how I will feel at the end of my life if I haven’t pursued my dreams to the nth degree. That doesn’t mean my dreams can’t change along the way… and they are certainly not subject to anyone else’s approval or measuring stick. But to be in pursuit of something (or many things) that makes me feel so fulfilled - complete, even - that is my personal goal.
As extraordinary Canadian athlete Clara Hughes has said: “If you dream and you allow yourself to dream, you can do anything. And that’s what this Olympic medal represents.”
What dreams are you striving toward? What represents Olympic gold in your life?
