Hey everyone, I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday. I was working really hard to get a video edited so it could be posted today. I love editing, but I also really love writing, so I hate when I don’t get a chance to do both throughout the day.
Even though it’s only Wednesday, this week has carried a lot of ups and downs for me. A lot of work issues, a lot of personal issues and then just some residual emotions about the thing that I’m going to tell you on Friday…
Anywho, today I just wanted to touch on something that has occurred to me lately. There is a huge uphill battle that you face when you’re trying to decide whether to pursue your dreams or not. There are so many factors that you take into count and then there is standards of “reality” and “society”. It takes a whole lot of guts to really put down your foot and take that first leap.
Since that portion of your journey is so difficult, you’d think that the next part is going to be easy. Nope. There are going to be things you have to do such as quitting your job, telling your family, telling your friends, staying motivated and just being confident in general. There may be some push-back from people in your close circle because they’re either jealous or genuinely concerned that you don’t know what you’re getting yourself into. Either way, it’s important to remain confident in your decision and motivated to do your best. I think that if everyone stayed 100% confident and motivated then everyone would get to live their dreams. That is easier said than done.
Quitting your job is probably going to be one of the most difficult ones for you. Even if you hate your job, you know that you will have a steady paycheck if you continue to work there. You know what you’re expected to do everyday. You know your boss’s quirks and what your co-workers are like. It’s a huge leap of faith to just believe that everything will workout somehow. That is so hard, but usually necessary when pursuing your real interests.
Even if you get past all of that, sometimes, you’re going to have doubts. It’s only natural to wonder if you’ll even be good at this new pursuit, or if people will think you’re a bum for quitting your job, or even if you’ve made a huge mistake. Doubting is good in this circumstance, it means you’re questioning and thinking. Your mind is working and you haven’t given up yet. This is when you have to keep pushing through the trial and errors and just keep your dream in mind.
Those are all of the thoughts I have right now. It’s just something I hadn’t thought about before. But the road to your destiny isn’t freshly paved. In fact, it’s not a road at all. It’s a forest full of trees and you have to go in the direction that is pulling you. Sometimes, you don’t get to be in control of everything. I hate that part.
