How to follow your dreams + my bucket list

Let’s get started!

“Each of our dream is given to us, with all the strengths needed to make our dreams to come true.”

– Richard Bach-

I believe in dreams, I believe that it is possible to make them happen, whatever they are. They won’t magically come true, you have to work for them. Often you will have to work hard and tirelessly, as everything what is valuable in life, won’t come easily.

I know it doesn’t sound appealing, but I won’t lie to you.

“Following your dreams has its price. You may have to change your habits, go through tough times, experience disappointment. But it doesn’t really matter how high the price is. It will always be lower than the price of someone who never took the risk. One day she will look back and realise, that she has wasted her life.”

– Paulo Coelho-

A bit of science

If you are ready for the hard work, let’s start with the basics.

If you want to make your dreams to come true, you need to know what they are. It’s super important to write all of your dreams down! If you write things down, you increase possibility to make them happen by 42%. Can you believe? 42%!! That’s a lot! When you write your dreams down, you can also track what happens with them, how many of them you have ticked and basically, at what point you are.

To encourage you to do it, I wrote my own bucket list. Bucket list is actually what the list of dreams is called.

This is my list. It may change as some of my dreams may evaluate. I will update it when it happens. So here you can see what I’m up. Maybe this will inspire you to write your own Bucket List and do all the work necessary to make your travel dreams to come true.

Final words

You need to know that changing dreams into plans, most of the time, won’t happen over night (however that’s also possible and my Cuban trip is proof to that). Often you need to take one dream at a time, turn it into plans and plans into reality. I know that you may think, that turning travel plans into reality, involve breaking the bank. But that’s the myth. You don’t need to have a lot of money, you just need the knowledge of how to use them wisely and start small. Of course! You need money, but not millions from a wealthy uncle or your credit card. You can earn all of them through your hard work.

Planning and acting according to your plan is the key to success.
