Everyone has a dream and as the saying goes, every dream is valid. In fact we are always surrounded by people who’ve made it to the heights of their dreams in life. But often the thought of “they are special, lucky or their timing was perfect”tend to cripple the motivation we get from their achievements. However, the only secret that make these dream achievers different from we, is the mind-set.
Yes! It’s that simple. The moment you master the art of controlling what you think, that becomes the end of your fears. Fear is the most dangerously known dream-killer in the whole world. We don’t go for what we wanna achieve because of fear. Not that we don’t have what is required in terms of ability, skills or opportunity. It’s all but because of this one and horrifying fantasy called fear. Fear of failure, fear of how people will say, fear of setbacks, fear of pain and so on.
…So how do we deal with such fears? … Simple;
#1. Be completely sold to your dream
This means you’ve got to start living your dream. Simply differentiate between dreaming and real life and transform your dream into real life. An ideal way to begin is by surrounding yourself with those already in it and have achieved some millage in the areas of your interest. Also, read and listen-to what you want to achieve in life, do it as often as possible. In fact make your dream to be part of your real life. Confess, follow and always do it.
#2. Keep the main thing the main thing.
The phrase is simple as it is. Make a priority list and highlight the most important of things to do. You may want to achieve many things in life, but not all of them at once, so do the necessary as much as your dream is concerned. Focus, is the keyword here, avoid distractions that may mislead your attention.
#3. If you are not doing the right thing, you are simply doing the wrong thing.
Get it? It’s that automatic. If you wanna gauge yourself, just mind how you spent your time. If the summery of that doesn’t match your objectives in life, you simply are either on the wrong truck or you are no-longer working on your dream. Energy is energy whether you are doing the right thing or the wrong thing. In fact you should spend more time thinking positively concerning your dreams in life and off-course least amount of time on the negatives if need be.
