As we get older, the idea of following our dreams can sometimes get really lost amongst the reality of mundane stuff. They say that a person is at their most creative and natural self between the ages of 10 and 13. think back to the ages and remember what you dreamed about. Perhaps you wanted to be a vet and work with animals or a full time artist creating artwork and doing what you love. Or maybe you wanted to be a journalist in a busy newsroom. If you didn’t have a particular career ambition at those ages, have a think about what hobbies you loved dearly. Maybe you loved to run cross-country, or maybe you kept a scrapbook religiously. Whatever it is you were doing, you were doing it because you enjoyed it.
If you have lost your way and are working in a dead end job or you just aren’t enjoying life, it’s worth thinking about following your dreams again. Push fear to one side and let your dreams power through. Here are some tips to help you not give up:
- Know what you want
A good start to pursuing those long-festering dreams is to know what you want to achieve. If you want to head back to school to gain a qualification, then do your research. Talk to people who already work in your desired profession and ask them how you should achieve your goal.
If you know exactly how much work you have to put in at the offset, you’ll be able to prepare yourself accordingly.
- Get organizing!
If moving to another country and living there full-time has always been a dream of yours, you need to to start organizing the logistics of that straight away.

- Take action
It’s no good just thinking about your dreams. If you want to make progress, you have to make stuff have. You have to take some action! It’s amazing how many people just sit back and expect things to come to them. Dreams take ambition and hard work to meet. You need to lay out a plan of action and take things on in steps. You don’t have to do everything at once; small steps are a good place to start. Make lists and try to tick at least one thing off every day. If you’re working in a full-time job at the same time as trying to achieve your goal, you’re going to have to work even harder. Be persistent though and do not give up!
- Make it fun
There’s no point in not having fun when you’re trying to reach your goals. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself that you feel like you can’t breathe. This is all about making yourself happy and following your passion. It will be tough at times but you need to just remind yourself why you’re doing it.
