Why You Need To Follow Your Dreams

Follow your dreams – A lot of us have dreams, vision, what we want from life but because we are stuck up with the pressure to be who we are really not, we lose sight of our personal goals, and abandon our dreams.

I have followed a lot of people in recent times. People who motivate me a lot with their life experiences. Young Nigerians who built a big brand for themselves out of almost nothing.

Hold on.

This is not a post about life experiences really (because if we go that route a lot of us have stories to tell), but my point is, it is okay to lack motivation, to be locked between a 9-5 that’s stretching you beyond your normal self, it is okay to feel less confident about your capabilities, but there is no JOY in this world as doing what you love and following your dreams to find your PURPOSE in life.

Start somewhere, anywhere, anyhow, take feedback from people, leverage your skills and talent and use it as a stepping stone to greater heights.


It is fine if people do not believe in your dreams, because if you look out for gratification in people, gratification to follow your dreams, you will be left hanging in the lush.

You know why?

Because people will let you see one million reasons why you should not follow your DREAMS.


When you start, even if it’s from the bottom, it is your life and there is nothing as special and valuable as starting a brand from the scratch – the OVATION when everything makes sense will ‘WOW’ you beyond your very imagination.

Live your life for you and follow your dreams!

Because at the end of the day, God will ask you when you DIE, that what did you do with the ‘TALENT’ he gave to YOU!

What will you then say at that TIME?

    Thank you.

    It also takes a lot of persistence to keep on dreaming and achieving in this part of the world. No matter how hard we try to mask it, the environment isn’t the perfect place to fly. I, for one think that it takes a lot of maturity to keep on pushing. Mental maturity, maybe.

    I really hope that every hardworking, persistent dreamer soars.

    Great post!
