I wrote a post last night and put it up on Facebook to share, but after a few minutes my wife and I talked it over and I decided to re-work it because it didn’t actually reflect how I felt. Writing is difficult for me when my heart is not completely in it, and I feel that you as readers deserve my undivided attention. Netflix was on my mind and I was not feeling too great as I have been sick for the past few days, but I’m back to talk about how I really feel.
Go on and take a chance! It is easy to spend your whole life chasing dreams, but that’s what sleep is for. If you want to live your dreams, then spend your life in bed. If you want to make your dreams a reality, then get out and get to work!
I have always been one to imagine things and come up with elaborate ideas, but nothing has really come to fruition because I stop and say “Well what if this works out?” I have a lot of talent and skills that I have developed over the years (“nun-chuck skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills…”) and yet I stop myself from moving anywhere with them. I am sick and tired of being my own wall, and yet I keep on doing the same thing over and over again! I am afraid of success, because I understand that with it comes responsibility and I am afraid of that.
Are any of you afraid of success, or even of failure? What keeps you back from making your dreams a reality? What is stopping you from doing what you want to do?
I always assumed that I never knew what I wanted to do for a career until last night. After writing the original post I thought “This doesn’t feel right. It doesn’t feel like me.” I was talking about how I still didn’t know what I wanted to do, but after thinking about it I can stand up proudly and say that I know exactly what I want.
I want this blog to be a success. I want to be able to make a wonderful income off of a project that my wife and I decided to start a couple months into our relationship. I want to build something from the ground up and see it grow and flourish, and yet I’ve been halting my progress by focusing on other things that have not made me as happy as writing posts on here! I want to help people and desire to build a community of love and friendship through a medium that I am familiar with. I can’t do that if my focus is elsewhere, so this is my promise to you.
I promise to work hard at making my dream a reality. I promise to continue writing because I love to write. I promise that even when things are going wrong, I’ll send a prayer to the Heavens and look to the future with faith.
What have you promised others or yourself but haven’t followed through with it? Are there ideas that you have swirling around in your head and have never seen the light of day? What is stopping you from going forward?
Take a chance! Jump into the deep end! I’ll let you know how the waters are, and then we can move forward with our dreams together.
