You need to look at life with the perspective, that nothing is impossible. Nothing at all. That's why big dreams are so important. With the right mindset, you should be on your way. Never mind the odds. Life consists of one miracle after another, believe it or not. You have to admit, that you've been lucky many times before. The bigger your dream, the luckier you get. Once you've accomplished just a fraction of what you were dreaming about, your motivation will know no bounds.
If your dreams don't scare you, they are not big enough. You were born with a mission. It's up to each individual to figure out the best way, how to fulfill that mission. Everybody's mission is unique. All that is needed to discover that mission is by listening to what excites you. This is it! This is me! Your enthusiasm will automatically deal with any doubts or fears. This is what living your life is all about. Pursuing your goal in life will give you the feeling, that life has deep meaning and then happiness is all yours. You deserve it!
Sometimes your dreams may not seem realistic. Don't ever worry about that. You don't have to be brilliant to achieve extraordinary success. Persistence and focus are the only requirements, not education or intelligence. Just go for it! You'll be surprised how talented you really are. You'll find out how little of your potential had really been crystal clear so far. You're an undiscovered gold mine!
