11 inspirational quotes about dreams and why they matter

quotes-about-dreams-1Today I have some inspirational quotes about dreams for you, dear reader.

Dreams are so important, wouldn’t you agree?

Those dreams we have, particularly when we’re young, about what we could be as individuals and what our lives could be too.

Dreams are undervalued:

How many young people are discouraged from pursuing their dreams?

Maybe you’ve had this experience. You go to your careers officer in High School and you explain that your ambition is to be an actor, a football player, a photographer or whatever. They listen politely and then they tell you to be ‘more realistic’.

The received wisdom is always along the lines of “Oh, football is a tough profession; you might not make it. Have you thought about becoming an electrician?

For football you can substitute music, acting, theatre, writing or any number of jobs people dream about building their lives around.

In short, youthful dreams are undervalued and they’re often crushed before they can even see the light of day. How sad is that?

It’s true, you might not make it, of course, but it’s better to try and fail than to spend the rest of your life wondering what might have been.

Dreams matter:

The beauty of being young is that for most people, you have plenty of time to try things, make a few mistakes and learn from your experiences until eventually, you find that thing that works for you and where you can really make a difference.

We only get one life, so we have to live it on our own terms.

We need a vision of what our own lives could be and then we have to live life with passion and enthusiasm in pursuit of our dreams, making the most of every minute.

Quotes-About-Dreams-2Life is short:

Life is short, so we cannot afford to live our lives based on someone else’s idea of what will work for us.

We must identify what it is we want in life and then we have to go out there and get it if we can. And we have to keep on trying and refining our approach as we go.

Never let other people discourage you. And never accept an answer unless it’s the one you want.

Remember this; always trust your own instincts.

If you feel you can do it then have a go. It doesn’t matter whether other people think you can do it, as long as you believe you can do it.

Of course, the converse applies as well. If it feels wrong to you then that’s probably true too.

So, here are 11 inspirational quotes about dreams to help you think about today’s underlying message.
