When we’re young, we’re encouraged to dream and use our imaginations. For awhile, we’re told that we can be or do anything we want, as long as we don’t give up. We grow up believing anything is possible, but, once we finish school and enter the working world, that encouragement changes.
Now that we’re older, we begin receiving new messages. People expect us to give up on those dreams and conform. We’re supposed to be more realistic and look for steady jobs, so we can support the families that we’re also expected to start. Practical concerns chase away those dreams and we have to settle for a job we never really wanted.
There is a bright side to all of this, however. It’s never too late. Maybe your dreams have changed or maybe you have had the same dreams all your life. What your dream is doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you begin pursuing it now and you devote all of your energy to making it come true. You may not be happy today and you’ll be just as miserable, if you keep going the way you have been. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. It just takes a willingness to change and the perseverance to see it through.
