Follow Your Dreams

As I begun to “put pen to paper” (so glad I don’t have to go down that road anymore, as my handwriting is quite illegible, so much so, that my Mother, thought I would make a good doctor).

A little earlier, I read on my PNA desk pad, “Always invest in your dreams” So, why don’t we do just that – invest in our dreams…. I would not blame you if you felt that the whole business of having dreams for your needs and wants, let alone seeing them come into your life, is a lot of idle nonsense.

But never lose sight of the fact that because you do not believe in something – that does not make it untrue or impossible to reach. But rather it is how you see something to be – not how it actually is…. Let me give you an example. You read what is written here and say to yourself, this is a lot of garbage! Somebody else reads it, says its worthwhile trying, persists and sees a dream come true. What is the difference between these two different points of view? Simply put; how each person viewed the message in what they read.

Having put that out way then, let’s consider PNA’s wise words, “Always Invest in Your Dreams”.

Imagine at the end of the year you received an unexpected performance bonus of R1, 000,000 – wow, what a break! You now have a large sum of money for which you had no previous plans. Wisely, you decide to take only R200, 000 of the money to use for some things in your bucket list and invest the rest.

Now, if you are like me, you have not ever had to think of how and where you must invest this size of windfall and get the best return with security. For this reason I’m going to leave you with the exercise of deciding what the best thing would be for your nest egg.

I don’t have to be a rocket scientist to realize, especially if you’ve got a grain of sense in your crown, that you are going to give this exercise, a great deal of thought. Once done, you will keep a close eye on the gain you are expecting from your investment.

Dreams are no different. I would think that all people have dreams about the kind of person they would like to be, but not all people have taken the time to squeeze these dreams into some form of particular order. However, a few have focused on what they want and condensed this into a way forward, which they follow with a passion, this ‘few’ will probably be about 1% of the world’s population! Only 1% has treated their dreams as investment capital – capital that must be invested wisely.

So why not join the 1%?

You want to?

I will wrap this up next week, promise. It’s just that I did make a decision to limit these postings to +- 500 words, but once I get started the words just fly by and before I know it, I’m up to a 1,000 words plus!! So, please bear with me again, until next week for the very challenging end to Following Your Dream.
