Dreams are simply a concept, and a psychologically controversial one at that. Theories like Sigmund Freud’s suggest that dreams have latent content also known as a deeper meaning. Given that hypothesis, it is implied they can give us insight to what our desires truly are. It is irrevocable to surpass your longings; they also give us an innate and an intrinsic drive that is irreplaceable and contributes to higher achievements. Contrasting theories relayed are that dreams simply are just your brains attempt at interpreting external stimuli.
Having visions, goals, desires and that thereof give us the opportunity to accomplish true contentment. When we are young life is magical and I believe it is because we find sheer joy in that we see anything as possible; we are not afraid to dream and believe in the unbelievable. As we progress through the stages of life and adapt to our occasionally pessimistic surroundings, we lose the courage to dream in the not so common solicitations we are faced with on an everyday basis. Sometimes individuals have a hard time coping with failure even though in reality it is a stepping stone in the process to victory. When we face our fears head on all we need is a little faith which is a notion we can only grasp from our dreams. Some may even encourage keeping your jejune ways to not see reality in a darker light.
If people didn’t follow their dreams, then we must consider the concept that our world would most certainly not have progressed economically, socially, or industrially as it has. One example that we see every day is the desire to live the American dream. Without perseverance, hard work, and a desire to accomplish then people like John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, John Dejoria, and etc. would have never made such huge contributions to society. So many in our world start from the bottom, the literal gutters of society, and by believing in themselves and others they can accomplish the unthinkable.
I believe dreams are two sided; they give us inspiration and sometimes even clarify what we want to do with our lives. However, all things are derived from emotion and our experiences. Things that we go through on a day to day basis may alter the rest of our lives; things such as love, habitual anger, or depression. Watching scenarios may alter our perspective on how to behave in situations and influence our dreams.
There are really so many notions that contribute to the idea that dreams fuel our soul. By following our visions we can inspire others around us and make the world an altogether better place. If everyone walked the path of their dreams there would be no hatred and misery going to work, people would want to accomplish their best due to the fact that they would ultimately just be enjoying their desires.
Sometimes even just defying others perceptions of you may be enough to push you to undertake the incomprehensible in your eyes. Our lives are short and everyone has different levels of importance; for some it may be an extrinsic motivation making others proud and receiving reward, while others significant meaning may only involve self-approval. Either way life is about being happy not trying to justify misery so whether it is becoming the next president, a teacher, or a lawyer you should never give up no matter how high the stakes.
The cure to anxiety or depression can be found in so many things. I believe love is one of the main contributing factors though, loving people, loving work, loving nature, you can find love in anything and it can make you happy which in turn relays emotions you find in your sleep. To follow your dreams is to change your life, your outlook no matter the reason. It will lead you to new experiences; show you your capabilities (especially the ones you were unaware of).
The importance of dreams and desires can be translated to mean one thing… inspiration. You will laugh more, smile more, and maybe the food will just taste a little bit better. Life is a competition even if you don’t view it as one and when we follow our dreams you have just a little bit better chance at becoming a better you. There is an unbreakable connection to life and desire; no matter what the yearning is do not ignore it, it will only become greater, just give in. Give in to the dream.
