According to the title of a popular motivational magazine manual, there are no UN-achievers, but please don’t mention that to the people who are already failing at their dream. He or she might be apt to bust your beak for you. And no matter how much I encourage people to take their dream seriously, I can’t lie and say there are no UN-achievers.
Sorry, but there are a lot of people who will end up not achieving their dream. Sometimes men and women never take their dream seriously. Some have doodled their time away at home waiting for the right time to achieve their dream, and others are stuck in a job or career trying to fit in.
The truth is, few people know what they want; most people never realize if their dream is born within them or borrowed from another. I’ve spoken to many individuals who admit that their current pursuit is something their parents or a close relationship desires for them. Most people never find dedicated time to pursue their inner passion.
I am approaching the heart of this post with two of these passions; both are simple. The first is to help you realize that passion is the best answer to the distress. The best place to build your well of blessings is the place you’re hurting the most. The second is if you don’t like your present situation you can change your approach and follow through with your passion for becoming an achiever.
The following seven factors will help you recognize the things that are holding you back from achieving your dream and how you can remove them:
1. Looking For Someone To Approve Your Dreams
One of the stumbling blocks people face in achieving their dream is thinking that their dream is too good to be true and feel they need approval before they can pursue such a dream. But the truth is, you don’t need anyone’s approval. No, not even the Gatekeepers!
Chances are, people will envy you, some will sneer at you, and others won’t even care when you’re in the pursuit of your passion. And they are right because your dream does not require the approval of everyone you love.
“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.” – Christopher Reeve
2. Not Giving Your Dreams Immediate Attention
Most of the time, we think our dream is temporary or only a fad, and we often take some time before we take action toward achieving it.
Can I be sincere with you for a moment? The best thing you can do toward achieving your dream is to start now, move quickly, start with anything, no matter how small it is. Every day you will be making progress, and it never stops until you achieve that goal.
3. Not Dedicating A Little Focus To Your Dreams
Dedicating your total focus to your dream will keep you creative, passionate, and persistent. It will reduce the focus on the unnecessary activities of your day. In fact, passive people might start finding your presence uncomfortable and will often look for somewhere else to feed their lazy and sluggish walk through life.
In a real sense, devoting total focus to your dream will help you fast track the process toward becoming an achiever.
4. Not Building Your Daily Agenda Around Your Dream
Someone once wrote: “Today’s work lies behind tomorrow’s success.” If you want to achieve your dream in your lifetime quickly, you must develop the momentum to schedule everyday activities around your dream accordingly.
Ask yourself, ‘What could you do today to move one step closer toward achieving your dream?’ Write it down and take the appropriate action.
5. Not Building The Right Relationship Connected To Your Dream
Dexter writes, “The successful person associates with those who support his dream.” Believe it! You must begin to associate yourself with people who share the same vision with you, don’t try to do it alone.
Mention your dream in a phone conversation, affirm it to friends who you think are important and would do anything to see you achieving such a goal. Be bold in declaring your dream in your day to day living.
6. Thinking You Don’t Have What It Takes To Launch Your Dream
Most of the time, the stumbling block that holds people back from achieving their dream is for people to think that they don’t have what it takes right now to launch an exceptional desire.
The truth is, you already have all you need, you just have to start feeding and fueling it until it becomes an obsession. Your obsession will be the magnet that will pull others toward you to help participate in your dream.
“Your success depends mainly upon what you think of yourself and whether you believe in yourself.” – William J. H. Boetcker
7. Thinking You Don’t Need A Geographical Change
The question is, do you dream about being somewhere else? Where? And why aren’t you moving toward it? You might think you currently don’t have the resources required to achieve such a goal, but the truth is, a leap of faith is required for you to do anything that must be done to keep moving forward.
You must develop a genuine passion for your dream and take a step toward achieving it in your day to day living. Though you might not see any immediate reward, keep moving until you sail into the land of harmony and finally achieve your dream.
