You Have A Dream
Did you once have that burning desire as a kid, to become something great?
Every Life Is Another Opportunity...
Okay, so you are older now and your dreams have shifted from wanting to become a pirate, a princess, etc. To wanting to become an influencer, an athlete, an accountant, a police officer, a serviceworker and so on. Whatever it is, no dream is too big or too small, regardless of what your circle of trust wants for your future.
You can be anything you want in the world!
- Parents worldwide
But in reality...
You can’t be anything...
I hate to be the one to tell you this, but your parents were wrong- because noone was born with talents in EVERYTHING.
Some people are just really good at finding their passions...
Eg. You can work really hard at being a singer, but if you don’t have a good voice, that’s just not the way to go for you. And that’s okay, because you have other talents to find.
You can’t become anything- it’s not in your cards. Maybe that doesn’t sound glamourous, but it’s the truth. Instead they should have told you to find your passion and work hard for it!
Why You Give Up
You need to realize that noone should be able to take your dreams away from you.
From personal experience, your biggest passion can fade in 3 ways:
- Time goes by and you lose interest because your interests change throughout time.
- Outside factors will change the picture that you drew in your head, that discourages you.
- You don’t believe in yourself
If you lose interest and no longer want to pursue a passion you thought you wanted, that’s fair. We grow older and we change. Our dreams, priorities, our thoughts and our lives, all change throughout time.
Outside factors is everyone and everything that you have no control over. In this case, take notes of what people say and what has changed so you are prepared. But whatever you do, don’t give up!
now let us have a look at number 3...
You may have barriers.
A backpack full of dark memories that follows you whereever you go. Maybe it bothers you that it still hurts you after so many years, when your mind wanders off to that place again. You know... the place in your life where you were lied to, betrayed, used or abused. That really hurt, trust me, I know. Though, I want you to realize that the longer you keep those thoughts and that scenario alive, the longer you will be affected by it, but noone and nothing should ever have that kind of power over you. If someone or something is out of your life, make sure it is not standing in your way anymore!
Put them in the box of memories that you pull out when you need motivation to follow your dreams and aspirations- and then put them back again.
Believe that you are more than your past, you respect yourself and a final cliché: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
So How Do You Find It?
Your dreams are never too big, too stupid or too much work! Best of all- you will feel good about both failing and succeeding in your passions, because you tried.
Allowing yourself to keep moving forward regardless of the outcome.
It’s simple really. Pick up a pen or your smartphone’s notepad and write things that you have always wanted to try. Anything you write down, may well be an unexplored passion to you- big or small, short-term or long-term, they all matter.
Then one by one, you go for one of these “passions”. You try it out and have a feel for it. When you try a couple, you take a feel inside yourself and whatever feels right, will be right.
Good luck with your dreams!
