Chase Your Dream Today

Are you chasing after your biggest goals in life? If you aren’t, what fears are stopping you? It is easy to be intimidated by questions like these. It is even easier to push these crucial thoughts to the back of your mind while telling yourself you will deal with it later.  But when does “later” actually come? Considering how short and fragile life is, there is no point spending your days doing things that don’t excite and inspire you. Pursuing your dream today may help you find your greatest passion.

The way I see it, the first step to finding your passion is to find yourself. Real change only happens when you muster the strength to look yourself in the mirror and accept what you’re afraid of. Not too long ago, I was so afraid of failure that I spent all my time and energy trying to avoid it. I didn’t know it at the time but this habit allowed my fears to grow, become stronger, and eventually dictate my actions. I stopped chasing my dreams because I was so afraid I would never reach them. Over time, I have come to learn this important lesson: If I fall short of a goal, I always learn something about myself. It is only through failure that we can adapt and grow.

None of us have it all figured out, so why do we spend so much time pretending that we do? We are all wrong sometimes. We are all bad at certain things when we first try them. If we viewed failures as opportunities to learn, grow and become better, then we would see the truth that we have the potential to be great at anything we choose. Do your daily actions help you get closer to achieving your biggest goals?

If you feel lost, the first step to finding your path is to try to improve each day at something that’s important to you. A little bit of effort goes a long way when it comes to growing as an individual. With your mindset in the right place, it becomes second nature to learn from failure and become a better version of you. When the ego takes a backseat, we see the world so much more clearly. When we are more aware of what we’re afraid of, it’s really not so scary!

Every single human being has limitless potential. The littlest spark of effort can ignite a flame of passion that we didn’t realize we had within us. I found my purpose and you can too. I found the people and passions that add meaning to my life, and I put effort in each day to improve those areas of my life.

You have the power to turn your dream into your reality. If you have a vision of what you want to achieve, go make it happen! If you don’t know what you want yet, be patient. Keep working on being the best person you can be and improving each day…very soon you will see the answer sitting right in front of you. The pursuit of your dream is a path that only you can determine. Take a step in the right direction today!
