“Follow your dreams!”
I’d like to argue the above quote is one of the most common expressions shared in life. And pretty damn good advice!
Because what is life without experiencing love, joy, and success?
An empty vast of time in which we just await death. Unfulfilling and lonely.
Okay so, follow your dreams. But how?
That’s the thing, there is no one way. And that’s a frustrating fact for many that need help getting started on the journey. But it’s also a beautiful thing if you really think about it.
Because not all dreams are alike. So it would make sense, for example,that someone who desires to own a gelato shop and an aspiring fashion designer would have different steps to take to making their dream come true.
But what is true in all cases of those trying to make their dreams reality is that YOU HAVE TO DO THE WORK. It’s really not enough to just talk about it. May seem pretty common sense, I know, but you’d be surprised how hard it is for those that are:
- crippled with doubt
- afraid of failure
- afraid of success
- mentally unstable
- lacking resources
You get the point. So it takes them a little longer to get to working on their goals. I imagine that there will come a day for them where they get too restless and fed up of not living the life they wish to live. Or, even better, they get the right inspiration/epiphany/ realization at the right time that sets them in motion.
And it’s okay to be experiencing all those things listed above, but you have to find a way through it. Because nothing will come to fruition without actual effort.
Remember, it’s not a race. It sure feels like it sometimes. Some are born running to the finish line, and others choose to take the scenic route. Just get there.
