Recently I’ve been thinking about why some goals fail to be materialized. Then I remembered something that my dad told me, which he also probably got from some other YouTube video that he watched. He said something like this:

“You need to have a dream after dream”

For example a dream could be to get a job at Google. Or become a doctor. But when you accomplish that, what’s next? A lot of people accomplish their goal and have no fire to go further and become better.

Hell, maybe for some, they can’t ever go even after the little rung goal because they just don’t grasp the reason for it all. They fail to see the big picture.

So I think that’s why, like all things in life, you have to start with a good foundation of why you want to accomplish what you want to accomplish. To do this, you need to have a dream after dream. An overarching goal that’s big, ambitious, and meaningful.

For example:

  • I want to become a doctor to reduce the pain of people who are struggling from health problems. Everyone deserves a chance to be healthy and live a long, prosperous life.
  • I want to be a musician so that people can find comfort and understanding through my songs. Life is hard without some fun tunes.

  • I want to become a teacher plant a passion for learning which will fuel the next generation of the world’s greatest thinkers.

The two greatest things that I have trouble always being consistent in working on is playing music and learning Japanese. Maybe reframing it in the dream after dream framework will help me be more consistent.

  • I want to write and play music so others can relax and be merry when they listen to me!
  • I want to learn Japanese to learn about the Japanese people and fully grasp the nativities of Japanese culture!
