All of us have dreams of our own isn't it? Even when we were young at the time that we can't still decide of what we want to be in our future someday, our parents or guardians made us think of something we wanted to achieve. However through time when our mind and decisions are becoming more firm, logical and reasonable enough to justify the person we want to be in the near future then it is up to ourselves to choose among all possible opportunities to achieve that goal. It is true that we can dream big because it's free but a dream might become a reality for us if we are persistent enough to put it into success the only question is how are we going to make it?
Before we set up our goals and make a plan on how to achieve it, I highly recommend to think about your hobbies and talent first and from those talents and hobbies try to start dreaming big and then set your goals. Now in setting your goals make sure to set the main goal first and focus on that so that your time and attention will not be divided.
Afterwards the goals will not instantly become a reality if you will just stock it in your dreams isn't it? that's why we have to set up a plan and when I said plan then we should make a good one so that it will be easier for us to slowly push through and finally meet our success. A little bit of advice, try to make a single plan, don't make plan B,C,D and so on just focus on one plan then fill it up with overwhelming strategy intended for possible problems or hindrances a long the way, the reason for this is for you to become more focus to your plan. Think about it, why do we have to restart planning or make another one in which we will go back from scratch if we can just stick to one plan and upon encountering problems we can just modified it or apply a different kind of strategy so that we will not go back from the very beginning. In that sense not only we can reduce the cost but also the time we need to spend in reaching what we ought to achieve.
In making our dreams into reality, we have to ask ourselves to when we are going to achieve it, are we going to start it right away or we still have to wait for the right time as what others says? For me it is better to start as early as possible we just have to make sure that we have the guts to suffer for the cost, remember dreaming big is free but achieving it and make it into reality is not. Hence it is very important to know how much you will need to support your plan.
Achieving your dreams is not easy for there are factors either within or outside us which will try to keep us away from our success and if it happens that we're too weak to overcome this factors then success is not possible. Some of the hindrances we may encounter are the following;
Pessimist people, these people always degrade you, they might judge you negatively to pull you down or lower your confidence and if it affects you so much then it might have a big effect in your concentration or in your consistency along the way.
Relatives, you may agree or not but not all relatives of yours will give their full support in you, sometimes those people you expect to have faith in you were actually the very first one that will judge and discourage you.
Friends, admit or not, not all of our friends are true friends, sometimes because we don't want to feel out of place every time we are with them we just go with the flow and choose to be the person they want us to be than grabbing a good opportunity to be successful.
Rejections, perhaps all of us has already an experience about this and we all know that there are still lots of rejections yet to come and the impact of this is a gradual lose of hope and confidence.
Fear, fear is an emotion innate in humans and it is therefore considered as hindrance in proceeding into a bright future because when someone is scared about something would he be courageous enough to face it? or he will just let it pass?
Doubt , within ourselves even how much we tried to push through and even how optimistic person we are, still there are times that we will doubt ourselves and sometimes our self doubt is far more greater than doubt of the others unto us.
Those things mentioned above are just some of the obstacles that we might encounter a long our way into the peak of what we want to be. Remember, the higher we climb then the harder and greater the problems will be but also keep in mind, a single problem has a million of ways to solve so why stop dreaming and pushing through if we can just find a million ways not to give up? All we have to do is to think and choose the right decisions and success is just on the other side of the river.
