Have you ever question what do you want to do in life that makes you happy for YOURSELF? If you haven’t please do it. I assure you once you have a straight cut simple goal of what exactly you want in life, things get easier and you will be more optimistic.
Who are the dream stealers exactly? Dream stealers are the people who make you believe that you’ll never reach your dreams. They’re the people that encourage you to play it safe: to get a nice safe job, to marry the first nice person you meet, to vacation near your location and for that, mine would be only around Asia. Anything beyond Asia, people try to stop me to go further. Does this sound a lot like your parents or close friends/cousins or maybe your spouse? That’s not surprising because family members are often the top offenders when it comes to dream stealing.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to brainwash you to say your family members are always at wrong. What I’m trying to tell you instead is that they did that for a reason. MOST of the time people who are close to you stop you from doing something normal and beyond comfort zone because of 2 reason.
For the concerned dream stealers it is often people who love you so much that they can’t stand to see you FAIL. Notice this failure is always a big NO NO in our family reputation.They want you to have a nice, safe, and SECURE life. They truly have your best wishes at heart but don’t understand that for you to be happy you have to reach for your dreams. Got it? I bet there are already some people in your mind. 😀
And then there are the jealous dream stealers who are the people that life has passed by. They gave up any opportunity to live THEIR dreams and they can’t stand to see you succeed where they failed. Sounds familiar? Know and identify this people.
So do you have cheerleaders or do you have dream stealers in you life? It is more difficult when you’re emotionally and financially tied down. Usually a partner or parents who question your decision to pursue further studies or to work on a job that have high level of security are RISKY. As mention at my previous post. The word ‘safe’ is now the new at risk. CLICK HERE.Pursuing your dreams is a lot easier when the people that you care about simply offer you encouragement and wish you Godspeed.
SO moral of the story, GO AFTER YOUR DREAMS. Before making any rational decision making when you apply something new or something out of your comfort zone, don’t get those close to you change that decision. People usually condemned things that they don’t understand. It occurs to me before but I know what I want. So go out there and be YOU.
How to accelerate your dreams? First shut up keep your mouth shut! Really simple as that.Most dreams get stolen because we share our dreams with the wrong people. We hope that they’ll be as excited as we are about what we hope to accomplish with our lives, but too often we’re disappointed and they steal our dreams. Two share your success and not your failures. Everytime you succeed it makes you believe in your dream a little bit more and gives you that much more confidence. And when you share your successes with the dream stealers, it takes away their power. Don’t share your failures because then the dream stealers take that as validation of their opinion that you’ll never succeed. Lastly, plan exactly how to defense your dreams. Be honest and that is usually the more powerful comeback.
With that I hope you make the right decision making and go out there and be a DREAM CHASER. Love Mimi
