LIVE YOUR DREAM
Inspire Yourself in 2020
“Dreams give us purpose. They inspire us to go further, work harder, and reach for the stars.”
“When you cease to dream, you cease to live.” –Malcolm Forbes
I think everyone should have a dream. Personally, I have a handful of dreams I’m working toward all the time. Dreams are the reasons we wake up in the morning. They’re the passions we’re fighting to realize! Right now, I have two big dreams.
I dream that one day my patients will all have perfect teeth.
Nothing would make me happier than to never have a patient come in with cavities, gum disease, or toothaches ever again. I want to teach my patients to take such good care of their teeth that they only need to come in for routine cleanings. This would be the end of a journey. My mission as a dentist is to teach people how to take care of their teeth. Healthy teeth wouldn’t put me out of a job; it would literally be a dream come true!
I dream that I can be a bodybuilder when I’m 90 years old.
My husband thinks my second dream is pretty crazy, but it’s my dream! I want to be in such great health that I could be a bodybuilder when I’m 90. I’m not saying I will be a bodybuilder, but I am working to be at that level of good health for the rest of my life. It’s not easy, but it’s worth the hard work. I’ve been going to the gym regularly and doing more cardio. Honestly, I hate doing cardio, but it’s to help realize my dream, so I aim to do a little more every day. I know my dreams sound outlandish, but that’s the point. When it comes to dreams, I believe in dreaming big — rainbow big! I know they sound a little ridiculous when I say them, but dreams should make you excited. Thinking of your dreams should feel like being a kid on Christmas morning. No one gets out of bed for a little dream. I wouldn’t be able to drag myself to the gym in the morning if my dream was just to lose 5 pounds. But to be a bodybuilder when I’m almost 100? That’s a reason to hit the gym every day. Another important thing to remember about dreams is that you can’t give up on them. A lot of people give up on their dreams because they don’t come true. They fail to realize that their dreams just haven’t come true yet. No
dream worth having comes easy. Colin Powell, former United States national security advisor, once said, “A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.” Work hard for your dreams, and don’t make the mistake of giving up on them too early. Dreams give us purpose. They inspire us to go further, work harder, and reach for the stars. Everyone should have a dream they’re excited about, if not two or three! As we start 2020, instead of New Year’s resolutions, why not write down your dreams instead? They can be as big as you can imagine, and they should make you excited about the future.
