“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” by Walt Disney
Dream life. What is your dream life? Why do you classify it as such? What are you doing towards that dream life? Are you truly living up to your potential? Are your current daily activities leading ultimately to your dream life? Everyday questions that we must ask ourselves, especially when someone close to you who was full of dreams passes away.
Most of us spend so much energy, and time into things that will not yield any benefits to us in the pursuit of a dream life. If you start counting the hours spent into a job that is not fulfilling or a relationship that is sucking away our happiness, you’d probably be impressed by how much could be used towards your goals. Many times this happens because we are afraid of taking chances and pursue our dreams. Several reasons for it would be:
- Lack of resources.
- Lack of time.
- Lack of commitment.
- Fear of judgement (your own and others).
- Fear of failure.
The least valid for me in this list is the fear of failure as it stops you from even starting. If you do not start to work towards your objectives/dreams, you will never know if you would be successful in that road or not. So what you failed? Should that stop you? Hell NO. However, that is not what happens to many people. The fear of failure becomes this big monster that engulfs you and makes it hard to pursuit the dreams; it keeps you grounded to the current unhappy life. Do not get me wrong, fear is a good thing, otherwise it would mean that your objective was too small and easy. You need to know what type of fear is beneficial for you. When you fail, you can restart and spot the mistakes done in the first round. The second round can be much better and productive because you have now prior knowledge. Embrace fear, do not let it swallow you.
For such a long time I was afraid of starting my own personal projects because I was afraid of what people would think if I failed. Today I can say how silly I was for thinking that way and although some are going in the wrong way, I could not be much happier. At least I started, and have improved so much. I learned of ways to deal with my fear, and can now approach it better than before. Take a step back when you feeling afraid, analyze the causes, ways of tackling them, and move on. It does not matter if you will fail, the important thing is that you start TODAY!
Here are a few articles that I hope they will help you and you will enjoy them as much as I did:
Start working towards your DREAMS and do not give up. Life can end in a blink of an eye.
Until next time, my Hungry People.
