Do not walk, Run towards your Dream!


There are some words which are difficult to define. For example- beauty, talent, love, affection, emotion, confidence, life etc. If a person looks beautiful to you, it does not mean that someone else is going to feel the same about that person. Someone’s talent looks small when he is competing with a person who is much more talented. Someone may love you a lot, but it looks really less when someone else loves you beyond your expectation. So it is not only difficult, but also impossible to measure these things.

When someone is happy, when someone has lots of people to love him or care for him, when someone is getting everything in life he desired; ask him he will complain that life is too short. When someone is alone, when someone is in pain, when someone is struggling for survival; ask him and he is going to say that life is too long. If we will calculate mathematically then each year is equals to 365 days, 8760 hours, 525600 minutes, 31536000 seconds. Yes the number is showing that one year has 31536000 moments in it. It also means, a person can smile up to 31536000 times, a person can kiss 31536000 times. So yes Life can be considered as too long if we will try to live in moments.

But now I just want you all to multiply that number 3153600 to your age. All ladies here comes a request for you all, please do not try to hide your age. So after getting the result, just think how many times life gave you a reason to smile? or how many times you have kissed to a person you love in these years?  How many achievements you have to proud of? How many times you have tried to make something really big in life? Yes I know you people are thinking that, “why we never realized that!”  Yes that’s what I am trying to say, “why we never realized that life is too short to bring a smile in your own face and to try bringing it in someone else’s face? Why we never realized that life is too short to love someone? Why we never realized that life is too short to even realize what life is in reality?” Because when a person is about to reach to the conclusion to the question “What life is all about”; Life leaves that person’s hand.

So how could be it possible to reach your dreams or I may say to achieve your dreams by walking towards it. You need to be really lucky to get there walking; and I believe luck is something which is not there with maximum people of this universe. So it will be really foolish of a person, if that person is going to think that he can reach there by walking.

Yes it is not an easy task to  make your dreams become true. But dear nothing good comes in this world so easily. Then how could dream be so cheap. If it would have been so chip, then it would not appear to us when our eyes were closed. It is just a glimpse shown to us by god, that what we can achieve in this birth, if we can give our heart, body and soul to make it possible.

What’s the point of having a talent of a writer in you, if you can’t autograph on your writing and gift it to a person to make him feel like he is on top of the world; what’s the point of having talent of a soccer player in you, if you can’t beat the goal keeper of opposition team in a world cup final to make people of your own country proud; what’s the point of being a human, if you can’t bring humanity to society; what’s the point of being a boxer if you can’t hit on the face of your opponent, at least if you can save your own face from him hitting on it; then also you will remain a winner in your own eyes.

So it’s very easy to dream with closed eyes. But to turn it in to reality, you have to run towards it. What if you will fall and you will not find any hands to help you get up; just get up by your own and again run. Run until you reach where you wanted to. What if you will get hurt; God has given you hands to wipe out not only tears from someone else’s eyes, but also from  your own eyes . So wipe out your tears and run so fast that, no one can realize that you are running towards your dream having tears in your eyes, pain in your body. But if you will walk towards it, then someday you are going to realize that may be one lifetime was also not enough to reach there. So instead of walking towards your dream, if you will run towards it, then at least you will get more chance to hit the bull’s eye.

So Run… Run and Run … until you reach your Dreams!! Believe me one day you are going to reach there for sure.

  1. absolutely wonderful! This is very inspirational. I appreciate you taking the time to share such inspiring thoughts. Great job, Arindam!

  2. “So wipe out your tears and run so fast that, no one can realize that you are running towards your dream having tears in your eyes, pain in your body. ”

    This is my favorite line.

    Thanks for writing about this very encouraging subject. :)

    • Thanks a lot Anastasia. I am glad that you found it as encouraging one.
      I just checked that clicking on your name, it is linking to your Facebook page rather than to your blog. So i think you must change the link to your blog, that will help others to reach your blog.

    • Thank you Abeera. :) I am glad that you found it motivating. But i think the biggest motivation for a person that person himself. If you have the ability, then why you need someone else to motivate you. Just go & catch all your dreams. It will take some time. But do not loose hope, and give it all the effort you can.
      Best wishes. Keep writing and keep dreaming. :)

  3. Sometimes our dreams are so special and important to us that we want to creep on them, snag them from behind so they won’t see us coming and run away. But you are right. You can’t swim in a tea cup of water, you need to jump into the deep end. Keep running toward your dreams. I’ll see you at the finish line my friend.

    • Thanks a lot Renee! It really made me smile, when i saw you mentioned me as your friend. May be i am the youngest friend of yours. :) As always thank you for these beautiful words.
      I would have added this line, ” You can’t swim in a tea cup of water, you need to jump into the deep end. “, in this post if you had mentioned this to me before posting this one. :)

      • Consider it posted now. And you know, I think you are my youngest ‘blogging’ friend. Please, please, do not say I am your oldest – dearest will work just fine. I can’t be the wisest because of Sir Charles, so….

      • No i am not going to say that! :) LOL
        you are my most most sweetest and dearest friend (I am not going to keep our friendship with in this blogging world, so i have not mentioned you as a blogging friend :) ).
        And again you made me laugh out loud by saying that you can’t be wisest due to Sir Charles. :) But i am not sure, if he considers me as a friend or not. I have to ask him someday about this one.

  4. A post that inspires you to run and reach for your dreams. I agree, life is too short. In a way, it can be even unfair. Just when we are getting where we want to be , just when we are at the top of the world, just when we have the love we always wanted, we are called to part this world. I wish I learned to live life to the fullest sooner, to love more, give more when I was younger. I know it’s never too late to make the most of my existence and so despite of the difficulties in life, I chose to enjoy what I can now with my family so I don’t have much regrets when the time comes. As for you Bro, truly live your life. Run and grab those dreams as soon as you can, and when you do enjoy them with the people who helped you reach them.
    Thanks for this words, “Celebrate this season with, colors of joy happiness, success, determination, love, care & support of your family. For me life itself is the biggest reason to celebrate.” Happy holidays to you and your family.

    • Yes it’s never late to realize these things. What a beautiful comment you gave. You made my day. And thanks a lot bro for these wishes. You are a wonderful person. Just be what you are.
      Happy holidays to you and your family. Live together, smile together and celebrate together!! :)

  5. The paragraph that begins with “What’s the point..” is so very true, Arindam. As always, you astonish me with your clear wisdom at an age when most are busy trying to while their time away in a pub or with a video game. A happy post to read on a Monday!

    • Thanks a lot Priya for these nice words. :)
      But i have a confession that i also go to pubs and i used to play video game a lot; although not to that extent as other people of my gen do. But one thing for sure i always try my best to never get carried away with those stuffs. :)

  6. Great post Arindam. You are one talented writer. I enjoyed reading this. Now I want to close my eyes and start dreaming…

    For this one, “But now I just want you all to multiply that number 3153600 to your age.” – I will just stick with the formula haha (no, I am not that old, just don’t wanna multiply it with my age)

    Happy Holidays! :)

    • Thanks a lot Arvee. As always you are too kind. :)
      It does n’t really matter if you multiply it with your age or not, until you have the realization that how many moments you have passed through life. :)
      Lastly i will not mind if you will close your eyes and start dreaming. Happy dreaming…..

  7. I needed to hear this. You words were the perfect message at the perfect time. Thanks for listening to your heart and writing it down. God does indeed know what we need, and uses many ways to deliver it. Thank you.

    • Thanks a lot Barb! :)
      Nice to see you in my blog! And i am glad that you liked this post.
      I also believe, “God does indeed know what we need, and uses many ways to deliver it.” Although i believe it, still i am waiting to experience it. :) After reading your comment, i am having a feeling that something good happened with you. So congrats for that and best wishes to you!!

  8. Arindam, this is such a great post. I especially love how you pointed out that a person would have to be very lucky to reach his goals by walking there – so run! I agree that we should each try to make the best use of our natural talents – otherwise we are doing the world a disservice by keeping something great from other people. Thank you for sharing your inspiration with the world.

    • Thanks a lot Christal! :) Nice to see you again.
      You defined the concept of the whole post in few lines. And i am going to agree completely with you on this one. I also believe we all are here to do a specific job. God has given us something at which we are really good. But it’s up to us, if we can find it in us or not. The realization of goal of our lives is the most important thing.
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this one. I really appreciate it. :)

  9. Beautiful post, and a topic well worth pondering. I especially enjoyed this line, “what’s the point of being a human, if you can’t bring humanity to society.” So true! I think if we all slowed down, just a bit, these things would come more naturally to us. But so many of us rush through life that we fail to take the time to question what we’re doing, and how it’s impacting those around us. You took the time, with this post, and it was wonderful to read.

    • Thanks a lot Melissa! And again you….. catch that line only, and mentioned it. For this only, i always keep waiting for your comments on my posts, to just see if you can catch my most favorite line of that post or not! And to my belief you always do. So thank you for that.

      And i really feel proud that, i know a person like you who always bring humanity to the society. You are a wonderful person, just be what you are. And i am very much sure you will be! :)

  10. Yeah I believe everyone should reach for their dreams too, it’s really disheartening when people tell you their dreams but then say it will never happen. Like one woman in my career class dreams of being a chef, and I encouraged her to go for it and that she’d be great at it, but she seems to think it’s unlikely to happen. I think it’s great to at least try and go after your dream or incorporate it in some way into your life.

    • Thanks a lot Brittany. :) You are absolutely right, but every person has different perception, so everyone has there way of living. We are no one to judge anyone right or wrong. Still i want everyone to live a life giving dream the highest priority.
      Thanks for visit. It’s all my pleasure to see you in my blog. :)

  11. A very thought provoking post. We all too often inhibit ourselves from reaching our dreams. Nothing is so big that we can’t get there. And yes, we shouldn’t wait, but go for it – or run for it – today, now. There is one danger with this idea, though, and that is that we might only be running toward future goals and forget to live in the moment. As you so eloquently points out life is but one moment after the other – and each of them hold infinite joy and possibilities. Live, smile, love in the moment – while running towards your dreams.

    • Thanks a lot for summarizing the whole post so beautifully. :)
      These are the thoughts which helped me to write this post. And i am really happy that you mentioned them in your comment.

  12. Awesome one. It is so apt for all of us:) Very inspiring :) Thank you for sharing such great thoughts on your blog :) All your posts reflect the clarity of your mind :) So keep it up and keep writing :D
