You Are Not Going to Make It! Stop Following your Dreams: A Motivational Speech

It doesn't matter if you are trying to make it in Hollywood, make it to that big office with a view, make it down to your high-school weight. The fact is you will not make it. Did you hear me? You will not make it unless you MAKE it! What does that mean? People tell you to follow your dreams. Don't listen to that noise. If you are following your dreams, answer me this: Where are they going?

Understand that your dreams are just an idea, an idyllic view of what your life could be. Dreams without action and without goals are just fantasy and no one ever fantasizes themselves to where they want to be in life. Stop following your dreams and start following the path that takes you to where dreams become reality. I say to take a path, but sometimes there won't be one and you will have to build a road. Brick by brick you build and you build until you have created the reality that you once dreamed of. Decide to be the person who builds their dream into reality, not the person who stands still following a dream that's going nowhere.

So again, what does it mean to say "You won't make it unless you MAKE it?" Think about this, if you are hungry do you walk into the kitchen looking for a sandwich or do you reach for the bread and make one? If you want something you have everything you need to make it but if you don't put the pieces together it wont happen. Same thing goes for success in life. You are surrounded by all the ingredients you need to make your dreams reality but they are not going to put themselves together for you. You have to do the work. Some people are intimidated by hard work. Some people are scared to build the future they want. People get stuck on the what ifs. What if I fail? What if I don't do it right? These people choose the safety of a mediocre life over the risk of working for something better. Don't be this person. Don't tell yourself that you won't make it so you shouldn't try. Tell yourself that you can make it, but only if you choose to and if you put everything into it. If you want a better life then build it. Don't chase your dreams. Turn them into the blueprint of your reality.

Stop Listening to Those Who are Selling You Failure

I guarantee that someone in your life has told you to give up, to not try, to take the easy path. Someone has told you that you are not good enough, not strong enough, not smart enough.

Whether it's your parents, your friends or your enemies, there is no shortage of people in life who will tell you to not go after your goals because THEY don't think you will make it. What do you think?

If you feel something inside you urging you toward greatness, listen to that. That voice inside you that tells you to reach for the stars knows you better than anyone else and knows what you can accomplish.



Why would you listen to someone who doesn't know you as well as you know yourself? People who tell you that you will fail are not basing their assessment on you but on themselves. Fear of failure is what holds people back, and unfortunately, they project it onto others.

This projection comes in two varieties. There are those who care about you and don't want to see you fall. Their m…
