Don’t let them take your dreams away

Motivation Mondays

never let anyone take your dreams away.

This week I want to speak on value and how it can get you in the place you need to be. Let’s start with a simple definition which is “A person’s principles or standards of behavior; one’s judgment of what is important in life.”

What YOU value and what YOU believe is important, and you don’t need anyone’s approval for it. Only for yourself, it is key to know that what you are doing is right to you and this is regardless of anyone’s thoughts.

Stick to your guts and keep going after whatever it is you desire. “Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.”

Let Me Share a quick story…

I will tell you a story of my friend Monty Roberts.

As he was a kid, his father as a horse trainer was moving from stable to stable, from ranch to ranch, training horses. Thus, the boy‘s school career was constantly interrupted.
One day, when he was a senior, teacher asked him to write about what he wanted to be when he grew up. He did not hesitate a minute and wrote seven-page paper about his aim to be an owner of a horse ranch, he wrote many details and drew a location of buildings and stables and even a detailed house plan.

Two days later he received his paper back with letter „F“ on the front page. After class he came to teacher and asked: „Why did I receive an F?“. The teacher responded: „This dreams is so unrealistic for a boy like you, who has no money, no resources and who comes from itinerant family. There is no possibility that you will reach your great goals one day.“ Then the teacher offered to rewrite the paper with more realistic attitude.

The boy went home and asked his father, how he should act. The father answered: “This decision is very important for you. So you have to make your own mind on this“.

After several days the boy brought the same paper to his teacher. No changes were made. He said: “Keep the ‘F’ and I will keep my dream“.

Now Monty Roberts owns a 4,000-square-foot house in the middle of  a 200-acre horse ranch and he still has that school paper, which now is framed over the fireplace.

Remember, you have to follow your heart, never give up, move on with determination and persistence,  and never let anyone take your dreams away.

As well as to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.


“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
