Why Do You Need To Just “Go Ahead” On What You Want

We all have a lot of goals and dreams we want to achieve in our life. Goals and dreams that we’ve been aiming for and dreaming for a long time. Maybe some of us have dreams that we were dreaming of since we were a child.

I have goals and dreams that I’ve been aiming for and dreaming for a long time. They are still on my list, some have no progress and some have progressed now.

There are times I question myself if some of those things are something I totally want. There are times I get afraid of something whether it is real or not, I’m just plain afraid of it. There are times where I want things to be perfect at first which is absurd, at least for me. Ironic isn’t it? There are times I just don’t know. I don’t know what to do.

The truth is reaching for our goals and dreams is difficult. It is difficult in the sense that there are real and unreal things going out for you. There will be distractions, sacrifices, and other unimaginative things that will happen.

I am still far from my goals and dreams in life but there is something I discovered that helped me tremendously to move forward. That is to embrace the meaning of “Go Ahead”.

Allow me to share it with you.

The “Go Ahead”

The saying “Go Ahead” is not just going forward. It is more than that. Over the years I’ve struggled to make progress on my goals and dreams. I don’t have the confidence to work on it. I don’t have the knowledge to work on it. I am not changing anything. I am not changing myself.

Through many setbacks and inspirational posts, videos, and people I’ve learned a lot! Things that helped me where I am right now. It’s amazing how life will allow you to experience setbacks or send different posts, videos, and people on different phases of your life to help you move forward.

Martin Luther King Jr. said, if you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to move forward.

Jim Rohn said, if you want a better future, you start, today. If you want better habits, you start, today. If you want to be financially independent, you start saving, today.

Most of the time we get afraid because of the unknown. We don’t how things will go through. We don’t how what other people will say. We don’t know if it’s safe or not. It’s scary! Does reaching our goals and dreams supposed to be a straight line? I don’t think so.

That’s life. Reaching for our goals and dreams isn’t a straight line. It will consist of a lot of turnaround, ups, and downs to go from point A to point B. But the most important thing is you start moving regardless if you fly, run, walk or crawl. Just move forward, today. That is what I meant by Go Ahead.

You Go Ahead regardless of how hard the situation is. You Go Ahead towards your goals and dreams. You Go Ahead and make progress, today.

Bringing It All Together

Maybe life isn’t that hard. Maybe life isn’t binary. Maybe life is how we define it. We can see hard things as easy things. We can see easy things as hard. We can see how we reach our goals and dreams as something difficult or motivating.

Whatever you want to see life is all in you. Regardless of how you reach your goals and dreams is all in you. In the core of it is your ability to Go Ahead. You Go Ahead despite any situations life gave to you.

Go Ahead day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year. And you’ll be surprised at how you’ve progressed already.

If you didn’t move today, where will you be tomorrow?

If you moved today, where will you be tomorrow?

Remember that technique or knowledge is just potential power. It will only be powerful if we take action, if we Go Ahead and use that action, today.

I wish you all the best. Go Ahead.

May you reach your dreams.
