6 Healthy Foods to Feed Your Hungry Dreams


1. A story

Nothing nourishes your dreams like feeding your mind and senses. Even if all you have is five minutes you can read, watch, and listen to a story that will inspire and motivate you even longer than the time you spent listening, reading, or watching.

2. Frustration and failure

It might taste bitter to you and your dreams but frustration and failure contain essential vitamins and nutrients that will strengthen, motivate, and create perseverance.

3. A worthwhile purpose

Just like you, your dreams need purpose to live. And not just any purpose; a noble purpose, an authentic purpose, a worthwhile purpose.

Purposes that are rooted in earning as much money as possible or in garnering fame cannot sustain a dream for long.

Dreams need purposes such as to help others, whether they be strangers or your loved ones, or to leave a legacy.

4. Criticism

Criticism is just as bitter as frustration and failure, and because of this you’ll want to shield your dreams from it.

You and your dreams need to instead feed off of criticism. Sometimes critics have decent advice worth noting, and other times they spew out criticism that is so infuriating that you want to keep moving and working harder to “show them.”

Give your dreams a little bit of the criticism to chew on once and awhile. If they really don’t like it, they can always spit it out.

5. Time

Every single day, even if it’s just for 10 minutes, work on your dream. Don’t let yourself get distracted or let “life” get in the way. You can’t neglect your dreams, because they will quickly die and begin to haunt you.

6. Success

You’ll often feed success to your dreams in different sizes. Sometimes it’ll be a meal, sometimes a giant banquet, and most often it’ll be a little snack. Even though it’s a little treat, it will energize you and your dreams so don’t overlook it.
