When Did You Abandon Your Dream? (Part II)
In Part 1 of this blog series, we talked about abandoning your dreams and what often causes this to happen. We left off the post talking about excuses and how those excuses hold us back from doing what we truly dream of doing.
In this 2nd part of this post, we will explore just a small bit about what to actually do to get back on track. Certainly, there must be some solution, right? Absolutely. Resorting that the next 20, 30, 40 years of your life need to remain stagnant is absurd. It’s time to discuss change. There’s a lot of angles to take about where to go next, but to keep this post short, we’ll start with finding your dream to begin with. A common question is “how do I know what I should be doing?” or “how can I find my dream”?
I would advocate that it can literally start with a blank piece of paper. Rather than starting off with distractions or suggestions from others, start out from nothing. Clear your mind, and then begin digging into what really drives and motivates you. Write it down. What interests or pursuits do you enjoy in your free time. Separate your hobbies, and leave them aside. Netflix, BBQ chips, and Mario Kart are not going to help, those are free-time hobbies, not career endeavors.
Jot down everything that comes to your mind. Who or what influences you? What brands do you gravitate towards? All of these things ultimately shape your behavior, interests, and pursuits in your life.
From there, you will need to map to what career opportunities could lie within all of those items you listed on that paper. I guarantee you, you will be surprised by how many options you have that connect directly to something you are interested in pursuing. I get super-psyched about this stage — I know, I’m a nerd, but seriously, the thought that you could bounce out of an awful job doing something you loathe, and find something that excites you each day to purse…that’s amazing!
