Are You Living Your Dreams or Living Your Fears?



Many people are not doing what they want t.o. do, they're doing the things they're afraid not t.o, do.

Think about i.t . We fear the consequences of failure. We think about how others will react t.o. our failure. The best way t.o. guarantee that you will not fail is t.o. not try.

Living your dreams can be risky. There's always the possibility of failure. But, there's, also the possibility of success, right?

You can achieve anything that you desire in life if you are willing t.o. do what i.t. takes t.o. achieve i.t.

Tony Robbins puts i.t. this way, โ€œThe thing thatโ€™s keeping you from getting what you want is the story you keep telling yourself.โ€

If you want to live the life of your dreams you need to focus on the present, keep your eyes on the future, and leave the past behind.

Are you living your dreams? Do you consider yourself successful?

To me, the definition of success is very personal and not measured in dollars and cents. I know I can look myself in the mirror and say, I have done the best that I can by tackling every obstacle and challenge, head-on.

if you try there is a 50% chance you will fail
if you do not try here is a 100% chance you will fail

there is a world of difference between insanity and stupidity

Great post. I am neither rich or famous, nor do I care to be. My tag line for years has been "Living my dream." I've been truly blessed to be able to live my life the way I feel is right for me rather than trying to live a life others think I should live.

The beauty and terror of technology (especially social media) is that we can (and all too often do) live our entire lives in *real time*. We spend every bit of our waking hours absorbing, processing and reacting to a relentless bombardment of information. As a result, few of us even bother to *dream big* any more. Fixated on our screens, we squander the physical, intellectual and emotion resources necessary to build and follow through with our ambitions.

So what to do? Personally, I have reduced social media time by over 50% (primarily by no longer opening either Facebook or Instagram), focusing instead on setting and implementing personal near-term and long-term goals. One (marginally) positive consequence of the Pandemic for me has been reduced travel and social interaction, thus freeing-up even more time for introspection and personal development.

If we can force ourselves to take a few steps down the proverbial *journey of 1,000 miles* we often surprise ourselves at how diligently we stay the course.

I pass my opportunities by because I assume I'll fail, or because I believe there's no chance I'll be successful. Comes from a lifetime of ingrained beliefs, no doubt.

I also do not open up communication with many men on this site for the same reason ... they couldn't possibly be interested in talking to me.

Sigh.

My dreams were ruined when I married my first husband, I will never get to do what I always wanted to do now. But life is what it is and we just have to make the best of it as we can. I know I have a dream that I hope will be coming true very soon. I hope you enjoy your evening..

This is a fantastic post, I sometimes wonder about that too.
I don't believe I will become rich and or famous, and I'm okay with that, there are too many naked pics of me out there. But seriously, I do feel that I've accomplished many of the things I set out to do. I also plan on doing more, and there's no reason why I can't do them.

Living my dream most of the time. There are always potholes and speed bumps in life. And sometimes one does have to do some things they don't necessarily want to do but they do it so they can do what they want. I expect that I will never accomplish everything I dream of because I firmly believe that I should always have 10 items on my bucket list and when I do accomplish one, I add one. I wouldn't trade my life with anyone

Success merely indicates you accomplished what you set out to do, or your goals. Regarding life, success means you are successful achieving happiness. Money often does not bring happiness. Therefore, money is not always the definition of success, though it might be for some people, if that was their goal in life.

I think that being successful is more about being happy with oneself, having enough to eat good health and the ability to adapt to the daily challenge of life. If I were successful in monetary terms I am sure I would be very unhappy and a slave to outside influences but I do enjoy the personal challenges that i set for myself.

The idea of keeping and updating a bucket-list seems to work really well for you. I remember you mentioning it in another response . Sounds like you have been successful in your pursuit of happiness. I don't know many who can sincerely say, "I wouldn't trade my life with anyone." Well done!

I remember a brand of sports caps that had messages like that written on the inside of the headband - never seen them for ages....

Concerning reality now, I believe most people actually compromise the dream part with the reality part , in equal - hopefully- proportions
Not many can say they have followed their dreams unwavered

Problem starts when the incremental adjustments one has to follow through life foinally sidetrack us, and end up wondering how we got there

So I'd say, it's the little changes that one has to loook out for

Fear can be such a driving emotion, standing in the way of what one desires. I truly feel that not trying something is worse than trying and failing. If you fail, we learn. If you don't try, we mite as well stop living! Gotta have faith in ourselves before we can share this others. Excellent post, pretty lady ... Happy Saturday - have a blessed day!

The only thing I had a dream about that did not and will not come to be was owning a B&B and being the chief chef. The rest of the "house" I would train someone to manage. But then again I have done things I wouldnt dare tell my family that were full of wonder and joy for me. This virus has curtailed a lot for most of us so I have found happiness and solace on other interests

Sometimes we have to adjust our dreams for a number of reasons. Coming to terms with that can be a challenge but sounds like you have a good handle on it.
