Never Give Up On Your Dreams

Often when I meet young adults, I'm struck by their drive and optimism about the future. Why is it that most of us have given up on our dreams? Is it because we have experienced the harsh reality of life, or simply that we are unwilling to make the effort?

In this post we'll examine what it takes to realize your dreams. I'll point out typical challenges you are likely to face along the way and suggest how to overcome them.

We all have dreams. May it be to get rich, become successful or travel around the world. Others dream of starting a family, living a healthy lifestyle or becoming enlightened.

Whatever your dreams may be, they are personal and important to you. If you don't feel like sharing them with anyone, keep them to yourself, or just tell selected individuals.

How To Realize Your Dreams

Without a well-thought-out plan, it's almost impossible to realize your dreams. Find out how others have achieved similar goals and never stop fine-tuning your strategies. Search online and read books for ideas and inspiration.

Next, you have to perfect your skills. For example, if your dream of becoming a successful painter, you have to learn the techniques from art teachers and established painters. Then, you have to practice and receive constructive feedback from your mentors. This is the most natural way to hone your skills. Over time, you will develop your own techniques and style.

Don't fool yourself and think that you can perfect your skills and truly deepen your understanding, without professional guidance.

What is more, you have to make persistent effort until you realize your dreams. This is the hardest part. If you give up, your dreams become nothing more than wishful thinking.

It may take you 6 months or even 25 years to achieve your dreams. Making persistent effort means to continue even though you have run out of motivation and the shore is not yet in sight.

Cultivate patience and endurance. Take on the mindset of a fighter.

Whenever your motivation is really low, it can be helpful to take a break; for a day, a week, a month or longer. Simple activities such as exercise and day trips may do the trick, or perhaps you need a long holiday and a complete change of scenery. Find out what works for you. Whatever refreshes your mind is wholesome.

Surround yourself with positive, supportive and like-minded people.

Moreover, don't be hard on yourself and recognize every bit of progress.

Make your dreams the most important thing in your life. The key to success is never to give up, simply keep at it.

Common Challenges

There are many a challenge waiting along the way. So, it's vital to focus on your dreams and not to be discouraged and overwhelmed by negativity.

It's natural to have doubt in your own abilities, especially when you never seem to get past certain obstacles or thresholds. Don't obsess about it. Instead, work on your skills, perfect them and continue to make persistent effort.

An even greater challenge is dealing with the negativity from family, friends and colleagues. Some of them may envy your drive and persistent efforts, while others may doubt that you will ever succeed.

Don't listen to anyone who tells you that you won't make it, or that you don't have what it takes. They may also point out that you are overdoing it and that you are weird. Again, don't take in what these people have to say.

Follow your dreams and do what is right for you.

There is nothing quite as satisfying as succeeding after years of struggle...

Never give up!
