How To Make Your Dreams Come True (Part 1)

By Johnspeak Uwangue (Motivational Speaker, Talent Manager and Coach)

Do you have dreams? How many of your dreams have you achieved? If you haven’t achieved any, then, how do you intend to achieve them?

Dreams can be very sweet and sometimes too good to be actualized, but the truth is, any dream can come true. As I sat to think, it occurred to me that there are many of our dreams that are yet to be actualized thus, the reason for this series teaching to help us bring our dreams and visions to reality.

In actualizing of any dreams, a lot of forces are required and today’s part will focus on the force of CONFIDENCE.

For instance, history will never forget the man called Winston Churchill. Churchill was a man who had a great dream, and was able to live his dreams through confidence.

While Churchill was in school in Harrow at age sixteen, Churchill’s response to a classmate’s query about his future was bold. “I can see a vast changes coming over a now peaceful world,” said the teenage Churchill, “great upheavals, terrible struggles, wars such as one cannot imagine; and I tell you London will be in danger, London will be attacked and I shall be very prominence in the defense of London… in the high position I shall occupy, it will fall to me to save the capital, to save the empire.” What a dream!

Growing up, Churchill was merely an average student. He was clumsy. But that didn’t stop his dreams. His long term goal was to enter politics where he’d actualize his dreams. He was so confident that his dreams could be actualized that he decided to make a name for himself first by joining the army. In 1899, Churchill resigned from the army to pursue his political career. He ran for a seat in parliament and lost. Later that year when war broke out in South Africa, Churchill went there to cover it as a correspondent for the morning post. Two weeks later, as he traveled with troops on an armored train, rebels attacked and derailed it. Churchill took charge and rallied the troops. He helped to clear the rails allowing the locomotive and the tenders to escape with the wounded. Then he went back to try to help the troop’s commander only to be captured. He was taken to a temporary prison in Pretoria.

But Churchill refused to give in to defeat because his dreams were at stake. He climbed over the prison wall and hopped a freight train. When he arrived at Durban, he found that he had become a national hero and an international celebrity. After returning to England, he ran again for parliament where he’d once lost and won. In 1940, he was chosen to be prime minister after Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was forced out from office.

After Europe fell to the Nazis, Great Britain stood against them for two years with Churchill as their leader. He defiled Hitler and continually rallied people of the nation despite repeated bombings from the Germans.

He saw it as a young man and confidently went for it until he became it. Confidence is what’s needed to pursue ones dreams despite all odds.

The question is, how can we build confidence to begin the actualization of our dreams? Let me quickly highlight four useful tips that we can use to build confidence.

1. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

The first and greatest obstacle to success for most people is their unbelief in themselves. The lack of trust in oneself can kill confidence thereby leading to continuous procrastination and fear.

2. BELIEVE YOU CAN BECOME IT

You can become whatsoever you want to if you can only believe it. Believing that you can become anything in life will trigger the confidence you need to stand up and take steps.

3. PRACTICE EXCELLENCE

A life of excellence will give you confidence to pursue your dreams. For instance, the excellence of a product will determine the confidence that will be applied to promoting it. For instance, having an authority in your field to give a thumb up to your idea or product will increase your confidence to take it to anywhere. That’s what excellence does to confidence. It boosts it.

4. KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO.

What can you do? Is a question if answered properly can help lift anyone into the realm of the unimaginable? Sometime ago, after waiting for the manager of a media outfit to request from him a slot on radio for my motivational program, he came and hit me with this question that sometimes requires a one minute answer. He asked me “young man, what can you do to help our audience?” and after giving him a one minute answer with clarity, he gave me 20 minutes weekly for a whole year without demanding for a fee. I knew what I could do and that gave me the confidence to approach him.

I strongly believe that these tips will help you to build confidence and take those steps to bring it to reality.

How To Make Your Dreams Come True (Part 2)

Growing up as a lad, I’ve always been known as a dreamer. I dreamt about anything; dreamt of speaking on television, radio, and being a celebrity in life and I also dreamt of having so much money to do whatever I want and many more. In fact, I dreamt about anything good and luxurious that you can think of.

As I began to grow older, I started to work and research out ways to make my childhood dreams come true and also created new ones. I am a big dreamer and I just love to dream because I’ve learnt how to make them come true. I’ve also been told several times that dreams don’t come true in Africa but in recent times, I’ve seen most of my childhood dreams come true.

While in my fourth year in the university, my dream of speaking on radio came to pass without paying a dime for it. What an experience it was to host a radio program for one year. And one year after my graduation, my childhood dream of speaking on television came to pass when I was asked to anchor the motivation and entrepreneurship segment on a television program in my state. Speaking on television made me a celebrity in my home state (Benin City, Edo state, Nigeria) thereby bringing another of my childhood dream of becoming a star to pass.

Now, whenever I hear people argue that it’s impossible or very difficult for dreams to come true in Africa I just laugh and remind myself of the proverb “the labour of so many wearies them because they know not the “how” to go into the city.” (Paraphrase).

Our dreams can come true if we understand the POWER OF FOCUS. Focus is what provides direction for the actualization of any dream. Without focus, the actualization of our dreams may be impossible. I agree with the martyred missionary Jim Elliot who said “wherever you are, be all there.” Focus does not come naturally to us so wrote John C. Maxwell. So the question is, how can we build focus?

Here are my two tips on how we can build focus.

- Be Dead to Alternatives

An American Poet Williams Matthews once wrote “the first law of success in this day, when so many things are clamoring for our attention, is concentration – to bend all the energies to one point and go directly to that point, looking neither to the left or to the right.”

Most times, alternatives act as our comfort zones that stop us from pursuing our dreams. To be dead to alternatives is to be a one eyed visionary person. It is to pursue our dreams one at a time.

- Know What You Want

It will be a waste of time, energy and resources to attempt to achieve something you do not know. According to John C. Maxwell, “the mind doesn’t reach towards achievement until it has a clear objective.” Know what you want to achieve and stay put on the path that leads to its fulfillment.

SUCCEED YOU MUST.

Nice thread.
But when you are focused on a particular goal neglecting alternatives, some other motivational speakers will term you "tunnel visioned" grin

Napoleon hill advised one to burn all bridges and follow your dream, but many years later Warren Buffet said "do not test the depth of the river with both feet".

My point is life is more complex than compassed journeys.
People will achieve their goals by being daring, some will ruin their life with same.
Some will achieve their goals by pragmatism, some will be condemned as failed pessimists by same.


Sometimes I think Destiny is inevitable, and man just toils for nothing.
