It’s easy to forget why you started working on something when a very long time has passed. Sometimes it takes months but most times it takes years for you to remember where it all began. It takes awhile for us to question why certain decisions we’ve made have worked well whilst others haven’t worked at all. Whether they had a good or bad outcomes, we fail to remember that somewhere in our story, there was once a little girl or little boy that dreamt so big they wanted to build things, write stories or paint pictures, that they did.
There was someone that started the fight we’re leading today and if we want to understand why things are they way they are now, we must look back to them, on the path our younger self drew up for our older self. Everything that is YOU will be on that path, past, present and perhaps even future -built on the sweat, tears and sacrifice of that child who dared to dream for the first time.
If you’re struggling with your dream, try and remember what your younger self wanted to achieve and their plan to make it happen. Don’t dwell on reality too much if things aren’t the way you pictured them when you were little. As adults we now see the things we didn’t as kids. We see how hard someone has to work to make a decent living or even have a shot at dreaming towards something bigger and we understand the risks we need to take and sacrifices we need to make to get to where we want to be.
Still, the one thing that doesn’t change is how hard we have to work for it and how we can’t give up, not when we owe it to ourselves to keep trying until we make it. Right now your dream may look like it’s far from happening, but it was further away from the little kid you once were than it is from you now.
So, you can do it!
Have faith in yourself and always remember why you started this journey in the first place.
