I am someone with a quick temper. I tend to react before thinking through my response to things. While this is not one of my best traits, in terms of chasing my dreams, it is.
Conan O’Brian once said, “Real life is about reacting quickly to the opportunity at hand, not the opportunity you envisioned. Not thinking and scheming for the future, but letting it happen.”. I absolutely love this. His take on reacting quickly is perfection.
Think about driving. When you are trying to pull out onto a busy street, sometimes if you hesitate you will miss your window for 5 more minutes. Many times in our lives we have to act quickly to take advantage of openings and opportunities.
When it comes to your dreams, you should always react quickly if you want them to become realities. Dreams will only be dreams if you never act on them. Stop thinking about them and go for it, then let everything fall into place.
Take control of your life. Be quick to act on your dreams and slow to speak. Remember, to go through the windows and doors that are open, because you never know when they will open again.
