Are You Sick and Tired Yet?
At some point you will without a doubt, have to get sick and tired of your reality. Whether it’s a good job that literally makes you ill or if you just simply are not happy with how your life has turned out thus far; it may be time for you to make some much needed changes. And you are going to have to get to a point where you understand that everyone else’s opinions are just that-their opinions. Also know that any decisions you make is for your happiness and peace of mind.
What’s In a Name?
Everything. Words carry much power. The reason I started this blog is so that the power of my words would encourage and inspire others to do something they thought was just a dream. With that said, it is important for you to begin calling yourself what it is you dream to become. And do not be afraid to say it aloud. ‘˜I am an author. I am a comedian. I am financially stable.” Calling yourself by the title reinforces your commitment to going after your dream; and in a way forces you to see it as a beginning of a new reality for yourself.
Starting At the Beginning
Here is where you will start to feel good about your decision to go after your dream. Because now it is time to do the research. Start by going to the library and checking out books on the subject you desire, as well as an online search. Also Google people in the field as their biographies will tell you what route they took which may in-turn, give you some ideas on what to do next.
Motivation Is Key
It is crucial that you keep yourself motivated. This may be hard to believe but all of your friends and family won’t be on team (insert your name here). The truth is they really want the best for you, and to them staying in a dead end job for 30 years is best as long as you are receiving a paycheck every two weeks. Obviously, the journey will have its ups and down. Something worth having never is easy to attain. But when meeting your goals slowly become not so important and you find staying stuck in your comfort zone easier, you should consider joining a group. You will be able to learn so much and motivate each other in the process. There are websites where you enter a zip code and the website will list meeting groups in your area based on hobbies, jobs, health, and a host of other interests.
The important thing is you are making an honest effort. You may find that this particular desire is not what you wanted after all. That is okay too, just refocus your energies and do it all over again.
