There’s No Rush! Following Your Dreams In The “Real World”

When you choose a certain career path in life you can thrive. After all, choosing your passions in life and following them to the bitter end is what makes us feel alive. When you talk about following your dreams, there are going to be naysayers. There will be people that tell you it's impossible, you “can't” do it, and they will give you an abundance of reasons why you won't get there. But this boils down to one thing, the fact that you've got to live in the “real world”. But as we've seen time and time again, it's possible to achieve your dreams despite your modest surroundings. But it does seem that if we are to achieve our dreams, we’ve still got to live in the real world somehow. What's the best way to get the balance right?

Taking Stock Of Your Financial Situation

The key to living in the real world but still following your dreams is about ensuring that you have very little in the way of expenditure. While you might not want to live life like a starving artist, if you are to make certain sacrifices so you can follow your dreams, you need to minimise your debt as much as possible. We can get a good idea of the position we’re in if we request a financial profile, which can enlighten us as to how much debt we have. While debt is one of those things that can hang over us for years, if we are to properly focus on achieving our dreams, maybe it's worth taking 12 months out to put that debt to bed?

Finding Yourself Something To “Fall Back Onto”

If you’ve got parents constantly disapproving of your career choice, and you are forever going back home, tail between your legs, one way to keep them at bay is to have something to fall back onto. The important thing when doing this is to find something that doesn't take up much of your time, emotionally or physically. It's purely a means to an end. But there are plenty of people out there that are able to put their skills to good use and do something on the side while still working to achieve their dream. A good example would be the abundance of writers out there that are looking to create their masterpiece- there are so many writers out there that work as bloggers, article writers, and copywriters! Having something to fall back onto admitting to yourself that you're never going to achieve what you want, it's just having a bit of common sense in your trajectory.

We all have to remember that when we’re looking to achieve our goals in life, that it's a work in progress. We can set ourselves deadlines, but this pressure may not give us the results we want. If you really want to do something in life, it doesn't matter how long it takes you to get there. Maybe this is something that we mistakenly do when we're younger because we think that we're going to get there in a couple of years. But there are so many examples out there are of people who started later in life, and not because they didn't have those dreams to begin with, they had to make other things a priority. There’s no rush! Follow your dreams!
