DON’T LET THESE COMMON MYTHS KEEP YOU FROM LIVING YOUR DREAMS.
It takes a certain amount of courage to pursue one’s dreams. Part of that courage is the ability to dismiss many of the myths that often discourage people from daring to follow their dreams. Here are some of the more common myths.
Sticking with a real job is the only way to be secure. Long term jobs are not always as secure as they once were. Gone are the days of landing a secure job and retiring there like many of our parents did. Security has more to do with how you feel than it does with where you work. Living the life you know you should be living is the true path to a secure future.
People are always told that they will most likely fail if they pursue their dreams. While it’s true that failure is always possible, it’s passion that overcomes failure. Being passionate about living your dream will keep you working at it until you do succeed. Those who fail never had that persistent quality that makes others successful. The more passionate you are, the more likely you are to attain your dream.
You can always start tomorrow is a myth that kills many dreams. Tomorrow turns into more tomorrows and before you know it, it’s too late. If you don’t start today, you’ll probably never start. If you don’t start today, chances are tomorrow won’t be any different. Tomorrow will come with more reasons to postpone. There is no time like the present.
Sometimes people don’t follow their dreams because they are afraid other people will think they dumb. It takes courage to do something despite what other people think. It is usually our own thoughts that hold us back. Chances are that people won’t think you’re dumb and in fact many people will be envious of the courage you’ve shown in following your dreams.
If you have a dream, and you really believe in it, you can make it happen.
