Making your dreams a reality can be like pushing crap uphill. Although I have not literally pushed crap uphill, I can imagine just how un-pretty it would be, similar to chasing your dreams (which is definitely not a picture of perfection).
When you’re younger it’s easy to believe that those who achieve their dreams are “lucky” or “talented”. But as you get older you realise success comes down to much more than just talent or luck.
What have you achieved in 2015?
As 2015 comes to a close, I’ve been thinking about the things that I achieved this year. I self-published my first book, I discovered that I LOVE making animation videos, I got to guest post on Tiny Buddha, I made a positive difference in people’s lives through my job as a Weight Watchers coach and did some cool freelance writing work.
But, I’ve still extremely far from where I want to be. As much as I like working as a weight loss coach, I want to be freelancing full-time. I want to be able to work from anywhere (yes, I know at this stage it’s cliche. I don’t care!). I’ve made progress towards that this year. But it’s been slow.
It’s easy to get discouraged when it comes to chasing your dreams. “Success porn” is everywhere, especially the overnight variety. It’s easy to have unrealistic expectations. The new OCD (Obsessive Comparison Disorder) kicks in, you wonder why it seems that everyone is able to reach their dreams, except you!
In today’s video I share two things to remember when it comes to making your dreams a reality.
Bring on 2016! And let’s keep taking steps towards our dreams!
In the comments I’d love to hear what your dream is and what steps you took this year to help make it a reality. Let’s all inspire each other!
Have an awesome Christmas and New Year celebration.
See you in 2016 (holy crap!).
