Have you ever heard of the quote, “Be careful what you wish for, you might end up getting it?” I feel it is the most ironic quotes of our times. It tells you that you will definitely achieve your dreams, but you will not be ready to pay the price for it. There is a price to be paid to bridge your wishes and reality, and we wish without thinking too much about that price to be paid.
When you desire something, you are making a deal with yourself not to be happy, until you get what you want. If what you desire is very big, you might put yourself in a position where you are pushing yourself harder to achieve what you want. Pushing yourself harder might come at the cost of your physical health, your relationships, your savings and most important – at the cost of your mental health.
Don’t worry; this blog is not going to ask you to dream any less. A guy like me is never going to advise anyone to dream anything less than intimidating dreams. Dream all you want, but be aware of the cost. The chapters in this blog are just reminders of some good practices that you already know; and following these practices will keep the cost of achieving our dreams as low as possible.
End of the day, that’s what we all want as entrepreneurs; you want the maximum returns (in terms of manifestation of our dreams), with the least effort possible. Without paying for it in irreversible damages. Without paying for it in health, relationships and security. And it’s possible. Many people have achieved their dreams without paying a stupid cost for it. Let’s achieve our dreams, but let’s not sell our eyes to buy a beautiful painting. If we are not careful enough, we might regret the cost we’ve paid, and not be in a position to enjoy what we have achieved.

Steve Jobs once said, “The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.” Now, there was a very high chance that I would have ignored all the inspirational quotes and videos from YouTube about entrepreneurship and success, but I didn’t. I didn’t ignore them because I’ve been lucky enough to have spent time with people who have dreamed big and achieved. And they achieved it right in front of my eyes.
Having big dreams, and making a deal with yourself to get what you want, can drive you insane. Almost.
If you are not yet an entrepreneur, believe me, it’s not for everyone.
Nearly every startup entrepreneur who has run a company for a few months, years or more would agree with the fact that you remain one step away from insanity, trying to manage everything and keeping your startup ship afloat. We stay at the edge of sanity. This blog is a set of notes that I wrote on my revisions and saved from my favourite blogs. Most of the notes are just notes and reminders to myself, to stay at the edge of sanity, but not fall off on the other side. Each note is a chapter in this blog. Each chapter talks about a small thought, which, if applied regularly, can have massive impacts on the speed and efficiency of the manifestation of our dreams.
I wouldn’t even need to convince you otherwise because most of what you are going to read about you probably already know it deep inside. If you have picked up this post or i have sent it to you personally, then we are all in the same boat. We are dreaming big, and we want to achieve big things. We have already made a deal with ourselves, and there is no way to escape this deal.
You are not gonna give up.
You are going to achieve success, at any cost. And in the process, let’s keep ourselves sane. Let’s achieve our dreams, and I will see you on the next post.
