Following your passion and dreams is what life is all about, but sometimes the journey can be hard. Why? Because following your passion and dreams means taking responsibility for your path in life. And so our tendency can be to want to ‘get it right’ on the first try and not make any mistakes. Unfortunately, this is not realistic. Because when you try to control a situation, it is usually out of fear, which you may not be aware that you have. And when we do things based on fear, it usually produces poor results that are far less than what we are truly capable of. That said, here are some of the most common mistakes we can make when following our passion and how to avoid them!..
1.The Perfection Trap
When you are pursuing your dreams, you want to try to avoid making grandiose plans. You don’t have to find the one perfect passion, but instead, you need just to follow the clues in front of you. Step back and look at what you can do today, and then pick what excites you. When you’ve completed that, look around you and take the next step that interests you.
As you start on your journey to following your passion, look at the options that you currently have available, and then notice which one holds the most interest for you, then do that. You don’t want to try to force things, If you feel overwhelmed, take a break. Lie down and relax, and when you start to feel better, ideas will emerge.
Worrying about what will happen in the future doesn’t help. If anything, it will make what you are worrying about occur. Worrying about what’s ahead will stop you in your tracks, and you’ll never end up following your passion. Try to avoid thinking bad thoughts. Ask yourself more productive questions and guide your thoughts to what can go right.
4.Making Fear Your Enemy
When you follow your heart and go after your dreams, you will have to let go of your fears so you can soar even higher. Don’t let fear scare you, instead take it as a sign that you’re on the right path. If you want to follow your passion you have to feel your fear fully.
Yes always remember..
Stop asking permission to be your Best Self. Instead, pull up the anchor, follow your passion and set sail towards the life of your dreams”..
