What is your Life Dream? And remember, once you have an idea; it’s important to be specific and focus in on specific details if possible. What would a typical day look like when you're living your dream?"
“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.” Margaret Mead
Keanu Reeves, known for his resilience, provides the answer when asked how he rebounds from epic failures like his film "47 Ronin." Three simple words: "You keep going." It's a reminder that accepting challenges and taking them on is the path to success.
Mr. Reeves sometimes known as “The One” or “Neo” had a simple answer which may have taken me a number of paragraphs to explain and Keanu only needed 3 words, “you keep going...” He had the same response for follow up questions about other hardships and challenges; he gave the same answer over and over again; “you keep going, and you keep going...”
"Every struggle in your life has shaped you into the person you are today. Be thankful for the hard times, they can only make you stronger." Keanu Reeves
So, what would you do if all your basic needs were met? Take a moment to dream big. What's your life's purpose? Your dream should be larger than life itself, and jotting it down can make it tangible. Remember the 10,000-hour rule, popularized by Malcolm Gladwell. It takes time and effort to become a master in any field, so be patient with yourself.
“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.” Soren Kierkegaard
Bjork's example can serve as inspiration. She found her calling through music that gave her goosebumps. If something in life gives you those good kind of goosebumps, it could be a clue. As you explore your passion, consider your childhood dreams. They might hold the key to your future happiness. Remember that action comes before inspiration. Start now; don't wait for perfect conditions. You can make your dream a reality. So, dream big, believe in yourself, and remember that you are unique and important. Take care and remember to be kind to yourself.
“Art is about trying to find the good in people, and making the world a more compassionate place.” Keanu Reeves
