If you’re a person who has been waiting for the right time to take a step towards the fulfillment of your dreams, you need to stop. Why wait for the perfect day and time to start pursuing your dreams when you can begin today? You don’t always have to run for big things, start low and small and keep growing along the way.
It is normal to be anxious to go after something that you’ve always dreamt of, but that shouldn’t stop you. Starting early doesn’t mean making a huge change all at once in your life. It means to start small, take fewer and littler steps along the way as you keep learning and growing. Every human being owes it to themselves to go after their dreams.
If you try and fail, at least you’d know that you tried. But if you didn’t even try to fulfill your dreams, you’ll always live with a regret in your heart. It’d always have you thinking how different your life would’ve been had you chased after your dreams and fulfilled them. Your true potential is so vast and remarkable, don’t let your fear of failure outweigh it. If you keep sitting and dreaming about your goal, who’d work towards it?
It is not bad to dream, but there’s nothing worse than romanticizing your dreams to an extent where you forget to actually take action on them. You can go after your dream today, whatever it is, big or small, hard or not, you can start chasing after it today.
If you’re stopping because of how young or old you are, you need to put that thought in a box and throw it away. Along the way, there will be people who’d encourage you, but so will there be those who’d discourage you, who’d try to pull you down and make you want to quit. The latter would make you feel disheartened and doubtful sometimes, even if you try to ignore them. It’s then that you need to remember that every person has self doubts, even the most successful people and even those persons whom you look up to.
As hard as it is, you have to ignore your fears and doubts and get started working towards the achievement of your dreams. If you let your fears overpower your dreams, you’ll always lament over it in the future. You need to keep moving, leaving your worries, fears and doubts behind and meeting newer challenges along the way and overcoming them too. This is exactly what you tell your friends and loved ones to do when they’re having their doubts, so it’s now time for you to tell yourself the same. It’s time for you to push yourself and start working towards your dreams for yourself.
You starting today doesn’t mean you giving up on all that you have right now, be it a good job, be it a balanced life or sorted relationships. It means that you need to make space and time for your dreams and that you have to balance it out. You can have the same life that you have right now and still pursue your dreams, if you have it in you to manage and balance things out.
Rejection and failure are the greatest steps towards your dreams, they don’t just teach you lessons, they also signify that you’re trying. Keep chasing after you dreams even when you fail, even when you want to quit, even when you’re discouraged by what others say and even when the future seems a little blurry. It’s all going to be worth the hardships in the end.
