3 Simple Things (Yes, simple!) That Kill Aspirations (Dreams)

By Jerry Olasakinju      

Everyone has got a dream or aspiration they are pursuing. That's a beautiful thing in itself, because if you are not dreaming, you are not growing! As Carol Burnett puts it, "when you have a dream, you've got to grab it and never let go."

                                 3 Simple Things That Kill A lot of Dreams

Here are three simple things that can sabotage any of your lofty dreams:

Apparent lack of clarity: As a dreamer, you must be able to see and envision clearly what you want to achieve with your dream. If you can't see it vividly in your imagination, chances are that you don't actually know what you are dreaming about. So, get clear on the goals you want to pursue. Outline the appropriate strategies that will make those goals attainable. Then pursue it with the vigor of a bull!

Bandwagon Approach: It is almost impossible to succeed if you always follow the crowd. Avoid getting sidetracked by a bandwagon approach, which necessitates that you must do what the other people are doing. We are all not going to be tech entrepreneurs or astronauts, pursue the goals that suit your personality and temperament.

Indecision: You cannot remain forever indecisive if you truly want to achieve all your lofty aspirations. Take hard and thought-through decisions and stand by them. Work hard to bring those decisions into reality. Pursue your goals with a fervor of a person who knows no fear. 

If you can patiently consider the points raised above, you will discover that you can actually rectify your dreams, no matter how long you have been laboriously working on them.

Let your dreams take a flight!
