There are lot of times when we hear people ask us to do our best and we start chasing our dreams. There are lot of stories of people not giving up in life and following their ambition steadily. Here it is mostly patience that makes them win and not being obsessed with dreams. In our act of thinking about dreams too much, we sometimes become so frustrated that we struggle to achieve our goals. And yes, being obsessed with achieving our goals can be exhausting. Now we will see how to handle such situations smartly.
Don’t compare yourself with others
You might have seen several people accomplishing in life. It may even give a picture of them chasing their dreams. But remember that everyone’s journey is unique. What worked for Sunil may not work for Prabhakar. So when you see someone achieving in life, just congratulate them and do your best in achieving your dream in a serene and steady manner.
Know what you want in life
This is one of the fundamental aspects regarding chasing your dreams. When we are not sure about what we want in life, there is no point in being disappointed when dreams don’t fructify. If you are sure of what you want in life, your life process will be smooth, and it won’t be as overwhelming as chasing the wrong dream.
Follow your dreams but don’t chase it aggressively
Follow is a less strenuous process compared to chasing. It wont also cause much stress to you. As said earlier, if you are clear in what you want in life, pursuing your dreams wont be a difficult task at all.
Create a to-do list
Build a to-do list so that you understand your priorities well. Once you have a firm grasp of your priorities, you won’t get that feeling that makes you feel as though suffocated. Learn to master the virtue patience. Here again, patience seems to be an unattainable virtue when we give so much hype to it. It is just that flowing with life is also patience, and one day you would be astonished at your tenacity.
Having fire in the belly is different from being obsessed with dreams
It is always welcome to have the passion to succeed in life. However, the problem is that it should not go overboard as said earlier in this post. In fact, a wise person knows that it needs a powerful sense of goal-setting and determination to achieve his/her goal.
We have to trust in the journey of life and believe that there is a process for nature to make things happen. If we are impatient and confused, we may not be able to see it. But definitely when you relax and stop aggressively chasing your dreams, you will realize that there is a page in history you alone can write.
