I never dreamed about success; I worked for it.
– Estee Lauder
Meaning of this quote:
The wisdom is to realize that success is not final, It isn’t an end result. Rather It’s the by-product of your hard work. Dreaming about it alone does not produce any results unless you put it into the effort.
Every great thing starts with the dream, but, It can end within the dream as well with the lack of execution. Nothing happens on its own, great dreams take great execution.
Success isn’t the ultimate destination, but, to fulfill the goal is the one. Success is nothing more than the reflection of your process. Don’t let failure or success stop you from taking further steps, because In the end, to keep moving forward is what matters the most.
Don’t dream about success, Instead dream about the process that can enable you to achieve your dream results. Dreaming about success without any concrete planning or execution is nothing more than daydreaming.
Dreams don’t come true without the execution
Dreams are nothing more than fantasy when they are not translated into goals. It takes nothing to have a big vision, but, everything to make it a reality.
Anyone can turn their dreams into goals and goals into reality as long as they truly work for them. With a lack of effort, It will lead to nowhere.
Your dreams shouldn’t be about just succeeding, don’t let success be your primary goal. It’s really easy to give up when we only aim for success.
Don’t aim for producing great results, Instead aim for putting into great work and ultimately as a byproduct, It will lead to great results.
There are no alternatives for the work, nothing ever happened on their own, there is nothing like magic or overnight success either. It’s the result of pure hard work, perseverance, and planning.
Believe In hard work and hope for nothing
There is one great quote by Jim Rohn, “Don’t wish it was easier wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems wish for more skills.”
Wish for nothing, realize that there’s a great difference between dreaming and daydreaming. To hope for success without any planning and execution is nothing more than a wish. And realize that this way it is not going to come true unless you work for it with a realistic approach.
Taking the actions is primary, everything else is secondary. And thus, when there are no actions involved, every other thing is almost pointless and next to nothing.
Success and failure are a part of a journey, both teach valuable lessons, but, both aren’t the destination or end result. They work as an indicator for your process or journey.
The purpose of failure is to self-reflect, learn from it and try again, while success means to keep up the continue by aiming for the next milestone. Each has its own significance. Failure can also contribute equally as long as one is willing to learn from it.
In the end, it’s your own willingness to act that matters most. In the absence of courage, even the simplest of things can become complicated. It takes nothing to dream about something, but it takes lots of courage, determination, and hard work to turn it into a reality.
Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.
