Let your dreams LEAD you

Mark Villarosa - Online Entrepreneur

When I was a teenager…

My dreams were of me onstage, playing music, there were smiling faces of people, I would play my guitar and sing and I made lots of people happy.

I also dreamt of adventure. Driving a car and a motorcycle with the wind in my hair.

Travelling to new places, meeting new people and making new friends.

Those were the dreams I had.

It took me many, many years of soul searching and personal self-development before I found my way back to living the dreams my boyhood self had.

As children, many of us were taught to suppress our natural belief that we could be whatever we dreamed to be, often by well-meaning people who just wanted the best for us.

But in wishing to protect us from falling and getting hurt, may have also clipped our wings and grounded us.

What were your dreams?

What or Who did you want to become?

The dreams we have, especially when we’re young are the essence of who we really are, and who we’re meant to be.

Don’t ever give up on your dreams.

Stay close to them in any way you can.

Dreams are a language our souls use to communicate our deepest and highest purpose in life.

If you have dreams that keep coming back to nudge you every so often?

Listen to them.

That’s your soul trying to remind you, who you really are.

Fight for your Dreams✊

Me playing guitar at 6 years old

One day when I was a young boy…I was practising playing the guitar and having fun with it when my Grandfather came up and said to me…

“Don’t waste your time with that. Study hard, there’s no money being a musician, get good grades so you can get a good job”. 

Although he meant well, I only realised later on in my life how much what he said affected me as a young boy and my confidence in expressing my true self.

So, later in life, to please my loved ones I went to University, graduated and went down the corporate route, specialising in sales & marketing and in fairness my financial situation and professional status kept on rising.

But the more focused and successful I was in my corporate career, the more my soul felt…”sick”.

Like there was a big emptiness & sadness in my heart…

I also felt strangely guilty – as if I had abandoned that little boy who loved to play music. 


 I spent many years feeling guilty, confused and sad about this – before I finally worked out that music and expression was always inside of me, just waiting to be let out and set free again.

I think a lot of people have this experience when they’re young, when someone, maybe a parent or teacher, advises them to take a practical route in studying hard and getting a ‘good job’.

But what most people find later on in life, is that just having a job that pays the bills isn’t what makes them truly happy,

It’s being able to express themselves freely and sharing whatever natural talents they have with others, that creates real self-fulfilment.

Wherever you are in your life’s journey, it’s never too late to do that.

Don’t give up on your dreams🙏 fight to defend them if you have to, they are who you really are.

Even negative feelings like pain, guilt and regret can help us find and discover the right path to reach them by showing us things we need to learn about ourselves…things no one can teach us, and only time and overcoming challenges can reveal best.

The best version of you and the life of your dreams might be the result of a combination of things you have yet to discover about yourself. 

You may have to go through some dark and tough times to reach the other side…but believe me, it will be worth the journey when you arrive.

The Inspiring Story of a Slave✊

Roman Colosseum

One of the reasons I love Rome is my fascination with the Colosseum, Gladiators & Spartacus. 

Spartacus was a Gladiator and a slave. 

His passion for freedom was so strong it allowed him not only to escape…but to grow his small band of 70 Gladiators into an army of 120,000 rebel slaves that nearly toppled Rome. 

Although he was eventually defeated, it’s still an awe-inspiring testimony to the power of what passion can do. 

 As I stood there in the Colosseum, I thought about how Spartacus must’ve felt, shackled, beaten, overwhelmed and chained and how defeated and hopeless it must’ve felt to him at the start. 


And yet, despite the impossible odds, he won his freedom and the ultimate glory which was to live and die on his own terms

I believe we all have access to that same power to do the same in our lives. 

No matter how shackled, beaten, overwhelmed, hopeless or defeated we may feel at times, there is always that possibility for us to change our circumstances. 

And I think as Spartacus has shown, it all starts with a burning passion.  

Look at your life and dig deep to recognise what that is for you. 

Being aware of what truly sets you on fire is the start of building something meaningful around it. 

Your dreams and your passion could be the foundation of a business or a change you want to happen in your life.

Or it could just be something that makes you happy which you can share as a gift with others, by showing them how to enjoy it too. 

Whatever your passion is, nurture its flame🔥You never know who you might be inspiring because of your light. 

Even a single🕯candle can start a chain that lights a hundred thousand more. 

I hope my Roman Colosseum experience has inspired you as much as it inspired me!
