How Can We Make Our Dreams A Reality?
Are They Only Dreams?
Each and everyone of us have some sort or dream in life and possibly a goal that we want to accomplish, but how much effort do we put forth in achieving that dream or goal we have?
The question here is, "how can we make our dreams a reality?" It is very possible for any dream or goal in life to come true if you stick to that goal and go over and beyond to reach for that dream.
I always had a dream to live near the shore, close enough that the beach and Ocean were minutes away.
Years ago, and in fact most of my married life, my wife and I tried so hard to get close to the Ocean and Bay, but back then no matter how hard I tried to achieve our dream, one thing was holding us back and it was my addiction to alcohol, sad to say.
I never realize this until I became sober in October of 2009. Once I started to change my life around things began to start happening for the good. My life with alcohol addiction not only stopped us from achieving our dreams and making that dream a reality, but my addiction almost caused me to lose our marriage as well.
At that point in my life our dreams would never become a reality because I didn't put forth my all, because alcohol kind of took first place in my life before all else.
Making Our Dream A Reality
Here Is How You Make Your Dreams a Reality
Once I realize that drinking alcohol every single day was holding me up from making our dream come true, I knew that something had to be done to get sober, and start all over again trying my hardest to make my wife and I happy as we were getting older everyday. The clock is ticking, and as we all know, life is too short to waste time and your life on an addiction of any kind, and in my case it was my addiction alcohol.
Once I saw that sobriety was great, and I felt great, I started to think clearly and I was ready to make that dream that we have had for all those years become a reality. This would be the gift to myself and my wife of 32 years, . the gift of sobriety
I have learned over the years that nothing will happen good in life without good hard work on our part, and my part of hard work was to get and stay sober for the rest of my life.
Determination in ones life to make that dream of yours come true is a huge part.
Positive Attitudes are another way to help in achieving that dream.
Willingness is also something that will help, meaning are you willing to give to get?
Strong Desire is needed to make that dream a reality.
Never Give Up until you have achieved that dream or goal in life.
Have you had a dream or goal you wanted to achieve?
Achieving Your Dreams
How Much Are You Willing To Give To Get?
In my case, I gave up something that was a huge part of my life for many years, and that was . I worked hard to get and stay sober and in the long run it paid off, because I am now living my dream with my wife, and living that dream clean and sober. my addiction to alcohol
I not saying things will not go your way, or your dreams won't come true and become a reality because you maybe addicted to alcohol or drugs, but (in my case) that was how it worked out. I gave in to my demons and my life change 100%. It didn't change overnight, but in about one year after I got sober things started to look up for my wife and I.
I truly believe it took that long because of the fact that just maybe God wanted to see just how I would handle sobriety, and if I would relapse and go back to my old ways. God helped me, and gave me the strength to get and stay sober. Now I had to prove that I wouldn't not relapse, and believe me there were times things didn't go the way I wanted them to go, and the first thing that came to mind was to have a drink and fix everything. Drinking fixes NOTHING!
Thank God I was more powerful than my past demons and simply said, "do Not Have that drink!" Drinking will never solve anything, although when we do drink we think we are the smartest person in the world and have the answer to everything. Not the case my dear friends! I learned that the hard way.
If you are willing to do anything it takes to make your dreams a reality, and have a continued Positive Attitude knowing you can and will make that dream come true, it will happen, you can count on it. You have to work hard and stick with what you want to accomplish and not quit until you have achieved that dream or goal in your life. Never quit!
