from Worldwide Success

 

Success requires a lot of hard work.  But many people spend their entire lives working hard and never reach the success that they seek.  Why?  Because many times they get caught in a never ending loop of working just to make ends meet, and they never take the time to step out of that loop to ask themselves this very fundamental question:  Are you working just to get by or are you working on a dream?

In modern times it is quite common for people to get caught in the traps of consumerism, buying things that are not really all that important, accumulating debt, and then working day in and day out just to try to keep up with this never ending spiral.  But to reach success, you need to get out of this loop.  You need to start working on your dream.

I happen to love Bruce Springsteen’s song called Working on a Dream, which you can listen to by clicking here, or you can read the lyrics here.  Here is a verse that I think summarizes quite well the journey of success:

“I’m working on a dream

Though sometimes it feels so far away

I’m working on a dream

And how it will be mine someday”

It is so true that dreams sometime feel so far away.  But those with the drive, determination and conviction that those dreams will be theirs someday, are constantly working towards taking incremental steps, no matter how small, towards those dreams.

Stop for a moment and think about your dreams.  Then ask yourself: If I keep doing what I am doing right now, will I be making progress towards reaching my dream?  If the answer is yes, you are living the success journey, no matter how far you may be from that dream.  If the answer is no, you need to make a change immediately.  You need to use your creativity to figure out how you can start working towards reaching your dream.

Once you start working on a dream, your whole perspective in life will change.  You will be more energized, more motivated, more creative, and consequently more successful.  The secret to success is to not only work hard, but also to work on the right things – and is there anything better to work on than your dreams?

The next time someone asks you what you are working on, how about this for an answer:  “I’m working on a dream”.
