"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
Dream again; and make your dream- your passion that fuels your purpose to be positively present in life.
Do not let your dreams freeze under your inefficiencies. Go for it! Stop thinking if you can do; or cannot. Unlock your potential and give it a try hundred times- before you decide to give-up. What is your motivation for starting on this journey; that you think will fulfill your passion?
There will be several reasons- quiet enough to make you stuck- at any moment. But find 'one strong reason' that will open all the gates of doubt. Let "confidence in yourself" rise high, and meet the sky!
Don't put your passion for approval from others. You will never receive welcoming results. Nobody else can understand the depth of your interest! Value your 'pick' and have respect for your decision.
Your passion will remain just any ordinary dream; until you take actions. Start doing; without just thinking about it anymore!
"If you believe it will work out, you'll see opportunities. If you believe it won't, you will see obstacles."
- Wayne Dyer
"I have my own experiences about people having "conventional" thoughts about one choosing to follow their dream/passion- and working towards
it! " You will be given hundreds of reasons- to believe that- if your dream is not lucrative; it's a mere waste of time and money. But who told them that; you are putting your passion over money?
Are you, really?
If so; then you are sure going to either stay stuck forever, or may never feel satisfied with what you do, or how much you earn; because your heart wants to do something else!
Money is important in life; but it can never bring you the expected happiness. You will wonder, wander and may also feel lost- while trying to find a "monetary" reason; behind you following you dream and passion.
"I remember; my family and close ones judging my capabilities; as well as trying to weigh it's monetary advantages and disadvantages, when I began my journey as a writer." The first thing- they used to advice me was," find a job for yourself (as I was a stay at home mom), as writing will not pay you."
I guess they were not wrong! We are humans, and very first need to everything in life - is money. If we are financially satisfied; dreams and passions can be acquired.
"But I have a different perspective towards following my dream or passion-even though it may not pay me! I would rather earn my livelihood by doing a job; while still continue doing; what I want to do badly-and that is, writing!"
"I respect my passion, and can never compare it to anything else!"
'Writing' gives me a reason to feel happy, confident, peaceful and most importantly; a purpose! A purpose that is enough, to feel great about- when it receives appreciations, and when people can relate to it; when I get to know that- my words inspired someone's life! Great deal of satisfaction and pride, I guess!
Sometimes many of us (like me) do or follow our heart- without much thinking about the Ws (why, what, when, where & who); and many even end up being famous or successful. Who doesn't want to be known? But glad, they followed their passion and worked hard for it.
Stop comparing, calculating or creating plans and thinking about purposes! Go for it, and do it- even if it sounds crazy or unnecessary thing for others.
