People often make the mistake of letting their dreams remain just that: dreams. Dreams they have at night but then neglect in the morning. Dreams they hardly dare speak of lest they don’t come true. Little bits of fantasy doomed to remain that way. But they don’t have to! Of course, there are some dreams, like becoming a neon flying tiger that fights crime with Batman every night, that will likely never come true.

But there are also thousands of dreams that are not early as impossible as we think them to be, and could be could, in fact, be fulfilled with a little planning and work, and sometimes just the courage to do something different than you have in the past.

How to Celebrate Make Your Dream Come True Day

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Mark Twain

The absolute best way to celebrate Make Your Dream Come True Day is to, of course, think of a dream you’ve been dreaming for a while, and then find a way to make it come true. Mind you, it may not be easy, and fulfilling this dream will likely not be done overnight, but you owe it to yourself to do something for you in your life, to prove to yourself that you really can, and that the routine of everyday life has not defeated you.

There are lots of ways you can go about making one of your dreams come true, but the first step is to have a general plan.

Has your dream always been to go on a European vacation for a full two months and experience the romance of couch surfing in foreign countries while sampling the local foods and wines? There is no reason you can’t do that. Take some time on this special day o calculate how much it would cost for you to do this, and then calculate how much money you can afford to set aside every month, and how long it will take you to get as much as you need. And then start right away, no more procrastination or excuses.

The same goes for the dream of being, say, a black belt in kung fu, or any other martial art, for that matter. Research nearby clubs, read some reviews, and sign up today. Three or four or five years may seem like a long time to achieve a goal, but as acclaimed motivational speaker Earl Nightingale said: “Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.”

Another way to celebrate this date is by watching one of the many films that will inspire you to go out there and make your dreams come true. One of our favorites is The Pursuit of Happyness. This film features Will Smith. He plays a single father who is struggling to raise his toddler after becoming homeless. It is a film that will make you laugh and cry while motivating you to pursue your own dreams, no matter how tough times get. Other films that we think are great motivators include Patch Adams, Gorillas in the Mist, Field Dreams, and Last Holiday. There are plenty of others as well. All you need to do is a quick search online and you will see plenty of great recommendations. 

We also feel that Make Your Dream Come True Day is a great day to encourage others to make their dreams come true as well. Sometimes all it takes is a gentle push from someone else to make you go out and pursue something. A lot of people are lacking in confidence, and they need someone else to believe in them so that they can believe in themselves. Wouldn’t it be great if you were the person to give a loved one a push that helps them to live their best life by chasing what they truly want? Or, if you and someone you know have similar goals, why not try to pursue your dreams together?
