What to do if you are discouraged about your dreams

This year in 2022, I made it my mission to follow my dreams.

That means, I will work on things that bring me joy, and pursue and create, even if there is a possibility that it I may be wasting my time.

I have been consistently blogging for three weeks now, and honestly, I am already doubting myself. I feel like, no matter how much I would love to make blogging a full time job, the blogging world is too saturated.

Sometimes, I think I should just go for real estate so I don’t waste my time.

I just wanted to be able to make a living by doing things that bring me joy. I quit my entire life and everything I worked towards, I am almost thirty, and I’m out here trying to work towards dreams that are not guaranteed.

Am I wasting my time? Is it not worth it?

I’m not sure and I don’t have the answer to that. But as I am writing this, I realize that three weeks is not enough to start getting discouraged. I know that for sure. People spend years and years working hard for what they love.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are not guaranteed. But I am not willing to go to a nine to five and work doing things I truly hate, or things that don’t fulfill me.

I really am not willing to go back. I don’t want to go to plan b. I need plan A to work. I love writing blogs everyday, I love to talk about fashion and beauty. It gets me so excited.

If you are feeling discouraged because of your dreams, just keep going. At least go all in for one year and see where it goes. Give it your 100% for one year. If you gain no traction, maybe re-evaluate.

If you do, maybe you have potential to grow and be everything you want to be.

Some things you can do to track your growth are:

1. Write down your milestones

2. Write down each attainable goal.

3. Write down your achievements

With each moment you achieve, if you write them down, you are able to see your progress. If you don’t, you forget everything you have achieved and where you came from.

Be patient. Remember all your previous successes did not flourish overnight or within one day, why would this one? Give yourself time. Sometimes all you need is time.

Be consistent. Try not to miss a day. Whatever you are working towards, don’t miss a day of practice, or auditions, or working. Treat it like it is already a full time job. Regardless of what income it may bring.

Understand the industry. Is it normal to not get responses quickly? Take the time to get to know the experiences of successful people and how they got to the top.

Don’t settle. Life is so much more when you stop settling for what comes easier, and start going for what fulfills you and gives you drive.

At the end of the day. You truly have one life to live, and you need to be okay with how you choose to live it.
