Ask: “Who is this for?”
Do you want to live a dream to gain approval from others? Do you want to do it because YOU really want it for yourself? Your dream doesn’t need anyone else’s approval, it is all about YOUR life, not theirs.
Wanting approval for a dream poses a threat: What if others don’t approve? Do you make them happy or yourself happy? Have a dream because it is something you truly want to do; something that is important and gives meaning to your life because you deem it so.
Obviously, approval from others is nice. But if others don’t approve of the lifestyle you choose, then don’t let it make a difference to you
Have the courage to be yourself and live the life you deem appropriate and not the life others deem fit for you.
Your dream is something special
It should excite you, fill you with a burning passion and a determination to achieve it. If you’re lukewarm about it then chances are you won’t give it your best shot.
It should be something that you absolutely, definitely and positively HAVE to achieve. Failing to achieve it simply isn’t an option because it will make you seriously miserable and unhappy if you don’t get what you want.
It is vital that you have this commitment to your dream because a wishy-washy approach just won’t cut the mustard. Think. Plan. Write it all down. Set goals. Then take action each and every day to take you closer to your dream.
Time for me to sign off. Please don’t just read this article and then move on to something else. TAKE ACTION. Use the tips to help you identify what it is you want from life.
Remember the question:
“What, exactly, do you want to do with your life?”
Only you can provide the precise answers.
