“As soon as you begin to pursue a dream, your life wakes up and everything has meaning.” Barbara Sher
It is never too late to follow your dream. Many of us are comfortable with our career and life but deep inside we have a passion to pursue a dream. It is the passion that keeps you believing that it’s possible but it’s being comfortable and fearful keeps you paralyze. Do not allow your fear to cripple you in that you never achieve your deepest passion. For some it’s not fear that holds you back but how do you manage the responsibilities that are so dependent upon you. That’s when you must build a bridge to transition into you achieving your dream. It was John Legend that wrote music at night after work and performed on weekends until he was able to fully transition into a full time artist. You too can do the same but remember it will take lots of hard work, grit and determination but in the end it will be worth it. No matter what you do if you are not fulfilling your God given dream then you will never reach the total highest expression of yourself nor fulfill your purpose. You can’t sit around waiting for your dream to come to you, you have to be the aggressor and go after it. You have to make the necessary changes in your life to position you to achieve your dream. If you keep doing the same thing and expect different results that is insanity. Many of us get caught in this trap of thinking that if we just dream but never make the necessary changes that will lead to fulfill their dream. I encourage you to take the step of faith and make those changes. Sometimes those changes consist of investing the tools you need to prepare and position yourself. For example, if you need to take a class or attend a seminar such as investment will position you and is a step in the right direction. You have to consistently take steps in the right direction towards your dream and not allowing anything or anyone to hinder your consistent effort and progress then you will eventually fulfill your dream.
