Why don’t people pursue their dreams?

What is YOUR fear? Why don’t you pursue your dream?

??? Question for you today:

If you had a million dollars – what would you do? Which dream would you fulfill???

I think money is a big factor why some people don’t pursue their dream. People want security.

My experience:

If my first goal in life would have been security, I wouldn’t have done all the things I did. If my goal was security I would have stayed in my secure job as a teacher.
I wouldn’t have left my secure income, I wouldn’t have left my friends, I wouldn’t have left the place I lived, I wouldn’t have sold my car …….

Instead: I would still teach at a school, I would have my own flat or house, I would have my secure income, I would have my friends around, I would have a nice car: all in all: a secure life.

Instead I chose a different life: little income, living with three other people, small rented room, friends all over the place, 17 year old car (my sister gave me back my car as a present – which I had sold to her a few years ago – I am very thankful for this actually), and and and………..

It’s not the most secure life to be honest, BUT I reached a lot of my dreams and I am very grateful for this.
If I didn’t have the courage to take steps into the unknown I would have never experienced all the beautiful things I experienced and I would have never met such beautiful people and I probably would have never grown that much.

It takes a lot of energy, a lot of effort to reach your dream, but it’t worth it!
Just start with the first step and everything else will follow!

Colour your dream!

  1. That is inspirational to read the things you have given up to follow your dream. I hope you keep inspiring others to do the same 😊

  2. Wonderful post! You are a great person to help others achieve their goals because you understand the difficulties AND the rewards.
    I don’t believe living your dream is about loss, just a difference in priorities. I am sure you will help others feel confident to make these changes. Your sister is fantastic gifting back your car – incredibly supportive.
