I wrote a post on my main blog about people telling others to be realistic about their dreams. Like I've always wanted to be a singer, and now an author. But, I've had many people tell me not to be unrealistic because there is a high chance I won't be able to do my dream job. Or the "you'll never make it!"
That is basically what my post was about and I was just wondering why people think that way. Because I think that you can do anything you set your mind to, anything, ANYTHING is possible and you can make your dreams come true.
I haven't gotten rude comments, or anything like that. But, I've gotten a few comments so far I haven't responded to because I'm not sure how to. See, I don't think if you sit and do nothing your dream will come true. I believe you have to work for it and know, truly and completely know in your heart that it will happen. And nor do I think it is wrong to have a day job until your dream can take off. What comments bothered me the most was this: "What's unrealistic is expecting to have the next textual blockbuster and expecting it to takecare of you financially. Sure, that can happen, but having things to fall back on is not a bad idea."
It was not a rude comment, but I don't know how to respond to this because....I don't think that way. I'm not mad at the person because I do understand that is how most people think and I really feel that is what holds people back: their thinking. From watching The Secret DVD I have learned that everything is about how you think. I know people say you shouldn't expect something to happen because you will only be disappointed. But, that is not true. If you truly want something whether it is money, or your dream job you have to expect it to happen. You have to know it will defintly happen for you. You have to truly and completely feel in your body and heart, you have to feel it with your whole being.
But, for most people a dream is just that...a dream. I do understand though that people don't think the way The Secret teaches you to. It's not their fault. It is the way our world is and the way we are brought up. I hope that one day that more people can begin thinking that way.
And I know this is my first update in probably three weeks. I've been busy writing either on my Xanga blog, or in my book. And tomorrow I'll be going to the Hershey library to sign up for the summer reading program. Can't wait for that. I'll try to update again tomorrow if I can.
