As you begin to knock at the door of adulthood, you will definitely be faced with the dreaded question either to either settle down or keep pursuing your dreams to actualization.
It’s quite challenging because you are faced with responsibilities that can’t be ignored, this happens everyday! Right or wrong? It’s true!
While you try to solve your everyday problems, you are also tasked to keep fighting for your dreams and to keep your ideas alive.
The way to go is not to be too hard on yourself, it’s harmful to become too rigid with yourself, you need to be flexible and adapt to a healthy lifestyle and mindset when the going becomes very tough and you are brought to your our lowest point in the struggle.
Here are 3 ways to sure and proven ways to achieve your dreams in the most difficult situations.
1. What inspires you? Believe in that totally
It’s okay to feel lost sometimes, it’s fine to feel all hope is lost, but you don’t need to put pressure on yourself to think that you need to accomplish something big to become a big name in the society.
Your dreams should not be about attaining fame or glory in order to be important, it’s about finding something that gives you a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Let your hobbies inspire you, be around people that motivate you to be your best and make you happy. Once you understand what fulfills you, you will find something to believe in.
2. Don’t create rooms for fears
Your fears are meant to hold you back. Tie you down and halt your progress in life. If you want to achieve your dreams in life, you must adapt to a healthy mindset that embraces the unknown. The fear of the unknown is what keeps many behind and down, and this restricts their movement in life. Rather than running away from them, you embrace them and turn them into stepping stones to higher heights. Challenges will definitely come, some of these challenges are not friendly, but they are not there to destroy you, they are there to make you.
3. Dream, but wake up to pursue them to actualization
It’s common to see people having great dreams and ideas, but it’s also very common to see them having those lofty visions and ideas as mere and passive ones. Don’t allow your dreams to just exist in the head, dream, but wake up to pursue them to actualization. Be focused and take action one step at a time.
You don’t need to accumulate large decisions to make big things happen. Instead, make your dreams approachable by dividing them up into small goals you can work towards fulfilling.
Dreams are like babies, once they are birthed, you need to start nurturing them, remember, you don’t give birth to child today and expect the child to become a full blown man immediately, it takes time, persistence and nurturing to get to a certain level. Success doesn’t happen overnight, it’s going to be a long, arduous process, but it’ll be worth it when you look back and see all the wisdom and valuable experiences you’ve accumulated in the process.
Final thoughts: we live in a world where anyone can become anything so long as due process is followed. The 3 ways above are sure ways to go.
