More Than Just a Dream
Find out why you’re never too old to pursue your passion.
What is a dream? By definition, a dream is a cherished aspiration, ambition or ideal. Dreams are what give us hope. They give us something to believe in and to look forward to. Without a dream, a goal, or passion, where are we heading? Be it about our careers or personal missions in life, believing in something that we want to achieve brings a certain amount of zest and enthusiasm for life.
All our lives, from when we are young to when we become adults, we are presented with this often repeated question in its various forms: “What do you dream of becoming when you grow up?” As children, the possibilities were endless, the sky was the limit and our belief in our ability to reach our dreams was unwavering. Though we may not keep those dreams with us for the entirety of our lives as we grow and evolve – naturally our experiences evoke new passions and inspire new dreams along the way – each new dream we develop gives us something to reach for, to aspire to, it gives us purpose.
Simply put, dreams are the visualisations of our goals and the driving source of motivation for our souls. Our dreams and aspirations are what awaken our passions and fill our lives with purpose. If you allow it, a dream will energise your mind, your will, and your emotions, to empower you to do everything you can to achieve it. Dreams are tied to who we want to be, what we want to do and what we would like to experience, they fill us with a positive perspective on life because they give us great hope for the endless possibilities within our reach.
“If you can dream it, you can do it”
– Walt Disney
However, as fulfilling and positive as pursuing our dreams might be, doing so can also invite an uncertainty into our minds through fear; an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger or pain. In this case, it’s not a physical pain or danger but rather an emotional one. We fear failure and sometimes the fear of failure can eclipse our motivation to succeed. Fear is part of our human nature, but if we allow it to overcome and overpower our dreams, it can sabotage our chances for accomplishing our goals, reaching our dreams and pursuing our passions. Many people put their dreams on the back-burner due to the overwhelming feeling of fear, but the truth is, anything is possible when you put your mind to it.
“If you can dream it, you can do it”, Walt Disney once said; a man whose success story follows a young boy growing up in a poor family, to later becoming one of the most notorious self-made success stories in the world.

Nadine Jewellery founder and creative director, Nadine’s story is the perfect example of the endless possibilities that come with pursuing your dreams. As an ex-banker who was successful in her banking career, although it wasn’t easy leaving a profession she excelled at and was familiar with, she took a deep breath and a leap of faith and discovered that dreams really do come true when you pursue your passions, follow your heart and devote your time and efforts to fulfilling your purpose. You’re never too old or too young to pursue your passion. Start here, start now, and whatever you do, keep your hope.
