Pursue Your Dreams – 7 Things to Keep in Mind and Do

You want to pursue your dreams. You have lots of dreams. Things you want to do. But somehow you are held back. In actual fact, no one is holding you back, you are the only one that is responsible for what you can and cannot do. So how do you pursue it then? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Go Create an Impact
You are a gift to the world. In you there are things the world would like to see, hear and feel from you. You are an artist regardless of what you do because the world wants your craft. Do not deny the world this craft.

In the day and age of the internet, you do not have an excuse of no money, no time and barriers. Everything you dream of, you can start with the internet. Start now.

2. The Union of Thinking and Doing
To create impact, the union of thinking and doing is a necessity. To pursue your dreams, don’t just think. You need to DO. That means to act upon what you have been thinking. Doing is easy. Thinking makes it hard. The more you think, the more resistance rears its head.

3. There Are No Formulas
People think those who achieve their dreams are special people who have a certain formula. Truth is when you pursue your dreams, sometimes formulas work. Sometimes they don’t. That’s how new formulas are created. That’s how you improve. Create your own formula to achieve your dreams.

4. Execution is Priceless
People tell you, ideas are important. But you already have an idea of what your dreams are. You want to pursue your dreams. Your dreams are your ideas. Ideas are worthless. An idea brought to life is priceless. If that is so, execute those ideas. Go and really pursue your dreams. To breathe life into an idea - Act. Execute. Seth Godin says, “Ship”.

5. Stop Asking Questions
There are no whys, maybes, perhaps. There is a time to ask questions. There is a time to stop. Now is the time to feel the fear and do it anyway. The more you do, the better you get. This website is an example of how I am pursing one of my dreams. Sure, it isn’t something big. A lot of people own websites and successful blogs, but it is a step in it. I did not sit and think and dream. I pursued my dream. It is a step in me wanting to share my experience. I did not ask if I will make a fool of myself. If I did, then so be it.

6. Doing Your Way to Perfection
Execution breeds excellence. Practice is the growth to perfection. The more you do, the better you become. Everything takes practice including pursuing your dreams. If you want to achieve your dreams, start. Then learn from the experience, and adjust.

7. Anxiety is Not Risk
People often tell you your dreams are too risky. Bullshit. Having a dream and not pursuing it is even riskier. What you feel is not risk. What you feel is anxiety. Anxiety is not risk. Risk can be calculated. Anxiety you cannot. You delay because you fear. You are afraid to pursue your dreams because you don’t know. You fear the unknown. You will only know when you do. It’s time, don’t you think? Do. Don’t talk. Go.
