15 Kick-Ass Quotes to Inspire You to Reach Your Dreams

Do you secretly fantasize about all the amazing things you’d love to achieve one day?

The beginning of a new year feels like a blank page, waiting to be filled with wonderful adventures. Dreaming about the perfect job, a fantasy wedding or the trip of a lifetime may feel like a luxury, or something that only kids do. But having a vision about your ideal life has more power than you’d think. Dreams drive you and give you purpose. They give you the motivation you need to build healthy habits and overcome obstacles in your way. Dreams can also make you see the world from a new point of view, because what you focus on, grows.

Although countless of experts emphasize the importance of goal setting to actually achieve your dreams – and rightfully so – you shouldn’t underestimate the magic of dreaming itself. Because like John Lennon famously said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” Sometimes, having a fixed goal and tight strategy in mind can make you feel like a failure when things don’t go as planned. When you’re chronically ill, for example, it might be easier on the heart to be flexible about how and when you reach a (modified) version of your dreams.

No matter which hopes, desires and ambition you wish to fulfill, let these 15 kick-ass quotes inspire you to go after your dreams.
