Following our dreams keeps our souls alive. It’s our very essence of life that instills hope. But sometimes it can be such a cliché’.
Everyone always says, “Follow your dreams!” But not everyone does it. Life interjects, bills pile up, and sometimes we feel as if change is impossible because of past or current circumstances. However, there are a number of reasons to follow your dreams, to break the trend, and to live the life you’ve always wanted. Here are some great tips and what true dream seekers do:
1. They make life worth living.
Your dreams are what can get you through even the worst days. If you are struggling, your dreams are your reason to keep going. They are why you wake up in the morning and try again. They are what makes your entire life worth living. Without our dreams, we are nothing.
2. Associate with other dream seekers.
When you are motivated and excited about pursuing your dreams, you’ll attract other people who have the same values and interests. The more you surround yourself with high achievers, the further you’ll go. Then, when times get tough, and it’s hard to keep going, your friends will motivate you to continue achieving. For me personally, I’ve had to let go my feelings of disappointment and frustration when my friends just didn’t seem to “get me” or the dream I am chasing. It’s near impossible for someone to support you and what you want to accomplish if they are not doing it themselves. Let those people go and surround yourself with like-minded individuals.
3. You can be an inspiration to others.
If you decide to go and follow your dreams, you will give hope to others who want to do the same. You can serve as their example and their reason why they should give it a try. You can help them, coach them, and encourage them to keep going.
4. You can provide for your family.
When you are this motivated, it’s very hard to fail. If you are very set on your dreams, and you make sure that you can make an income along the way, you’ll be able to provide for your family. Some dreams take longer than others to achieve, but that’s what makes the end goal so worth it.
5. Working in a job you hate makes the days go slowly.
Why should you work in a job you’re not passionate about? You’ll count the clock, you won’t do as well, and you’ll dread waking up in the morning. Instead, pursue your dreams! Get excited about your day, and enjoy the process of doing what you love.
6. Because no one is going to follow them for you.
Let’s face it: no one else is going to pursue your dreams for you. Everyone has their own dreams and their own goals for what they want to achieve in life. If you don’t go for it, no one else will.
7. So that you can finally be happy.
Life without dreams is like a garden without flowers. Search far and wide for yours, and make a promise to yourself that you will start pursuing them. Once you get on the path towards your goal, you will notice a distinct change in how you feel.
8. To prove them wrong.
All of us have been around people who told us our dreams weren’t possible. Let that add fuel to your fire. Think about all the people who said it would never happen, and go out and prove them wrong.
9. It will make YOU proud.
It’s a meaning to life, an accomplishment you won and best of all you will be proud of yourself! Your confidence will rise, and you’ll enjoy the excitement and the adrenaline that comes with doing something you’ve always wanted to do.
10. You only live once.
Life is short. So why spend them doing something we don’t love? It’s time to make a decision to go for it and live life to the fullest. We all deserve that! So ask yourself this question…Am I satisfied with the contentment of mediocrity? Or are you ready to step up, take a deep breath and go for the gusto? Never give up on what’s important…don’t worry about the time it takes to reach your goal. Time passes and each day you become a better version of yourself.
