A lot of people are stuck with hopes and dreams. It’s so much to look forward to. If this is you, don’t worry! Here’s a great guide to giving up on your dreams in three easy steps.
1. Accept Where You Are
Sometimes people aren’t happy with where they are. They want to become better, want to do more, want to make a bigger impact in the world. If this is you, I’m here to help.
First, you should always accept where you are. I don’t mean be happy with who you are or be content. That’s just normal. I mean accept your current circumstance as your future circumstance.
After all you don’t want to be like the guy who just sat around all day that became the the guy who runs triathlons. Who needs improvement? Accept where you are. In fact, if this is too much to absorb for you, why not take a nap and come back later.
2. Be Okay with What You Have
Perhaps you are one of those people that struggle with wanting to make a nice deck to enjoy in the summer or you want to create a small studio in your house to enjoy making music with the kids. This is folly.
Instead you need to be fine with what you have. Again, this isn’t about being content. Anyone can say “I’m happy with what I have, but I would also enjoy a fun project.” It’s much better to sit on the couch all day and say, “this is nice.”
Putting effort and creativity into your life and your surroundings is only going to make you follow up on your dreams. Give it up before you find out how much joy you have in improving your world.
3. Take It Easy
You know what they say: The early bird is super tired. Or something. Anyway, who needs all that hard work? Why do something creative, productive and fun, when you can just sit back and watch life pass you by?
After all, if you sit and do nothing, then you have nothing to show for it. But if you use your time to make something new, work on a project, or start up a hobby, then you’ll have something that you can be worried about someone else taking credit for. Who needs that.
One of the best ways to give up on your dreams is take it easy. Sure, hard work produces results, but taking it easy… probably does something. Whatever.
Hopes and Dreams
If you want to see your hopes and dreams become a reality, it requires effort, planning, and sacrifice. It’s easier to give up.
Sure, it doesn’t give you anything, but when has following your hopes and dreams given you anything more than satisfaction of a job well done, enjoyment of learning and growing, new things you created to be proud of and admire, personal growth, a sense of purpose, knowledge of the value you bring, better skills, amazing outlooks, the thrill of discovery…
