Definition: Success means finding a way of earning a living from doing the activity that you most love. If you wake up every day doing what you like to do, then you have achieved your dream(s).
Doing the right thing to pursue your dreams and taking the first steps towards it can be very threatening, but if you have to courage to step into this journey, here is what you can expect from it. A lot of things are going to change, so be prepared for it.
1). Don’t let the fear in the house. Fear has nothing to do with pursuing your dreams, so you want it out as soon as possible. However, being scared is part of the process and you want to work with it, not against it.
2). You will have to step out of your comfort zone. It’s an inevitable step in this journey you are loving so much already. Nothing happens if you don’t make it happen, so what are you waiting for? Nobody has ever conquered the world without making a sacrifice, and that is why at first it may seem hard getting out of your comfort zone. Then you will start loving it!
3). You will want to try something you’re more familiar with. At times, it happens to feel way too overwhelmed about the situation and you will just want to get back to your old job having an annoying boss and not very friendly colleagues. But then you will realize this is what you have been hiding all of your life, so why go back to it?
4). Insecurity can take over. That is of course, if you let it. Here is when you should listen to your intuition to see what is the next step you should take. Don’t rush things out, and don’t panic.
5). You will definitely meet new people. This is probably the most important aspect of doing what you love. You will meet new people and build new relationships over the time. This will give you the possibility of building the business you love and the career you’ve always dreamt of.
6). Some friends will go, others will come in. You have to get used with this. The only constant in life is change, so changing your friends is part of the equation. I wrote about breaking relationships here, too. Some of your friends may not be ready to go along with you in this journey, they may feel uncomfortable and threaten by this change you are ready to make, so don’t worry about losing them. It means they were supposed to get out from your life at some point.
7). You are going to love it. And love it so much, that you will ask yourself why you didn’t make this change sooner. But now that you are ready to take the bull by the horns, nothing can stop you from bringing you dreams to reality!
So what are you waiting for? No matter what your dreams are, take the first step now to make them reality!
