I probably have a collection of at least 30 quotes and images that say some version of the same thing. To sum them all up, we must take action towards what we want if we truly expect for our dreams to come true. Goals must be achieved or they won't mean much to you at all. We must work for what we want rather than sitting around and waiting for that lucky day to come upon us. If we don't move forward, we're always in the same place. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
But it is true. Every single version of this statement, no matter how it is phrased, talks about putting our goals into action. Making the necessary moves or taking the crucial steps that will draw us one step closer to the goals we set for ourselves.
I have, of course, been guilty of sitting around and waiting for things to happen, but as I get older and learn from my experiences, I learn each day that we can't wait for anything or anyone to call us up, offer us our dreams, or sweep us off our feet... without putting in some form of legwork in the meantime. I've quickly learned that if I want something to happen, then I need to take the necessary steps in the direction of that dream. Oftentimes, the universe finds a way of helping us out along the path and drawing the right people to us. From what I know so far, as long as we take a few tiny steps each day, we can really only be moving forward!
