Reasons Why Having Dreams and Goals is Important in Life

There is a saying by the Brazilian lyricist, and novelist known as Paulo Coelho that says “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: The fear of failure”

Dreams are necessary. Without dreams, there will be no ambition to chase. There will be no goal to reach. We will all be nothing without dreams. One of my favorite rappers Meek Mill has an album that goes by the name “Dreams Worth More Than Money” yes, the title says it all.


Not having dreams is like chasing a traceless murder.

It’s like following an invisible shadow. It’s a dreadful house chase. We must know what we want to do and follow that ambition. We can’t achieve anything in life without goals, we need to dream.

Most people do have dreams. Big ones and small ones. Even the most successful people had dreams and that’s what has made them what they are today. Dreaming is essential for a human being. Without dreams, you will lose interest in life and finally hate living life. You will be bored and tired of the same monotonous routines of your daily life and will not even find interest in the most exciting things.

Only with dreams, you will find a purpose to live life. You will start working hard towards the dream and will never lose interest, unlike the opposite. You will never tire and always be motivated. This is the best way to become successful.


With dreams comes responsibility. It’s just not enough to dream and forget about that dream. Many people dream, but only some wake up and work for it. It’s essential to work hard for your dreams. Without this hard work, a dream will only remain a desire in the subconscious mind and will never be achieved.

In today’s post, we will see (and already have read up above) the importance of dreams, the effects people you hang up with every day can bring to you and your life.

As everybody knows dreams are crucial. Do you know what happens when one lives without one? I am damn sure you can mention a lot of things that can happen to someone living without having dreams or some say goals.

And I honestly don’t know if there are people in the 21st-century world we live in has no goals they have set to achieve in a certain period. If can be found, may be going through some brain incapability or some sort of brain disorder that makes them less efficient to have one. Lol.

Uhm, I don’t want to talk more about this but if anyone with all the senses is still there with no dreams or ambition to go after something they deadly want to see come true, I  would like to encourage you to get out of your comfort zone. Wake up,  and go get it, you got this.

Do you know that ignoring what your gut is telling you could lead to countless depression episodes, anxiety, and stress in the future? Maybe you didn’t know but now you know.

Having dreams or/ goals saves you from so much stress that you could go through in the future. You cannot see it today, but I tell you, if you ain’t doing what you should be doing in the present, the price you will have to pay tomorrow will be high and maybe you won’t afford to pay and be your fall. Who knows?

What does life really feel like when you don’t have dreams for yourself? Horrible. Look, life has no difference with that moment you eat Popeyes biscuits without any drink in your hand and it is stuck in the throat. Suffocating, right?

If you don’t have a dream

•You can never enjoy the luxuries of life or all that life has to offer.
•You will never feel that ecstatic feeling of achievement.
•You will never get pride in what you do and what you have achieved.

All these things are necessary for human beings and without these feelings, there’s no ambition.

If you don’t have motivation, you will be a failure in life. i) You will not be able to achieve those goals and will lead a miserable life. ii) You will never enjoy the “good” of life and you will never feel happy. iii) You will be a failure and be nothing in life. Refuse that.

Dreaming helps you to get an attitude of doing better or constant improvement. Constant improvement is very important. We must go the extra mile to reach our goals.

Failures may come but an attitude to keep moving on and trying to improve is thoroughly achieved by dreams. Dreams are the fuel that keeps energizing you to go further. Even if there are many obstacles in life, you tend to keep moving further and trying to be better than who you are.

Constant and never-ending improvement is very vital in progressing in life. It enhances your personality and also whatever you want to progress in. It helps you learn from your mistakes. Steady progression will help in slowly achieving a big goal.

Dreams also help in aiming for bigger goals. Dreaming for big goals is very crucial and they can even be dreams that change the course of your entire life. It decides your occupation and your inner desires.

For teenagers and kids, it helps in becoming more studious and makes you more inclined towards studying. It helps you achieve any goal that you want to achieve. It’s almost the most essential thing in one’s life.

So, dreams make a life. They motivate, inspire, and improve, not only that, but they also help you in achieving any goal that you want to achieve. Without dreams, we will be nowhere!

Can’t forget to say this. The people you surround yourself with are extremely important. Don’t hang around people that tell you that you can’t do it, it is not going to happen, that dream is too big for you. Do yourself a favor; find some different people, but people who will fan your flame.

People that will put their faith in yours and say, “If you believe, count me in. I’m believing with you” always. Don’t go plant your roots in places that don’t support your growth. Don’t mix up with people that only want to see you fail. Don’t mix up with people who don’t motivate you to go that extra mile for you to see your dream come true.

Just imagine; you have friends who don’t go in the same direction as you. You do this, they do that. You say that they say this. Ain’t any different as the tribe of Shinar that has agreed and tried to build the tower to reach heaven but God confounds their speech so that they can never understand each other. Do you know what happened? They didn’t get to the finish.

Once you have a dream, your surroundings matter most. If your surrounding is not friendly to your dream, it’s okay to cut off everything and anyone that you think slows you down toward your destiny. You sure don’t need anything that will be an obstacle for you not to see sunshine tomorrow.

What does it mean to you to live the life of your dreams? The life you see when your eyes are closed?

What to do after dreaming

Everything you create or acquire begins in the form of desire. In order to act, you must have a purpose (dream). If you want to act successfully in all but the most mundane affairs, you must embrace that purpose with a burning desire. Many people think they want to be successful, but since they don’t back that thought with an intense drive, they never achieve success.

Cultivate your desire. Feed it with thoughts of yourself enjoying whatever it is you seek.
It’s like stoking the furnace of a steam engine. You need to build up enough pressure to carry yourself over hills. If your desire doesn’t burn hotly enough, you will find yourself stalled and rolling backward. The secret to action is a red-hot desire.

The bottom line

There should be people in your life that inspire you – that challenge you. That makes you strive to do better. When you are connected to someone that is blessed, you respect them, you admire them, you learn from them, and importantly, serve them.

The more blessed they are, the more blessed you are going to be. Eventually, you going to be like the people you are connected to.

It’s never too late to dream. You are wrong if you think it is too late already. It’s never too late to dream and don’t just dream, you have to put in work.

Dream all you want, don’t limit yourself while you are dreaming. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Believe. Believe in your dreams. Yes, if you can dream it you can live it.

No matter where you are from, your dreams are valid. Don’t ever confuse what you think with what people think. You have to live your life, not theirs. You have this one life as a gift to prove everyone that doubts you wrong; that you are capable of making anything you put your mind to come true.

The wrecking ball is in your hand, strike every negativity that comes your way and conquer. You are the champion and nothing else.

Go get it Champ. Best of luck 🙂
