Something calls to your heart – a big dream, a big vision for what could be – and you want to act on it. You may have known from a young age that you’re here to change things, to contribute in a big way.
Maybe you’ve started to take action but then “life” got in the way and you lost your momentum. Or maybe you’ve never quite convinced yourself to really go for it. After all, you’re just an ordinary person.
Each post in this series is designed to illuminate 8 things that have killed countless dreams, and one thing you can do about each one. My intention is to support you in your big vision – to help you be the one who never gives up.
8 REASONS you can GIVE UP TOO SOON ON your BIG DREAMS…AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT
Reason #5 Stopping When Things Go Wrong
Especially when you’re starting something new, unexpected things will arise to take you off-course. After all, your vision requires that you do things you’ve never done before.
Precisely because you don’t have evidence from the past that you can do this, the inevitable breakdowns and problems that arise can seem like evidence that you CAN’T do it. It’s hopeless. You might as well quit, now, rather than continue to beat your head against a wall.
One thing you can do: However, when you know how to work with that part that wants to quit with compassion the energy can shift quickly and new possibilities can open up. Recognize that each problem can make you smarter. Instead of being the reason to quit, use unexpected challenges as a reason to renew your commitment and a source of creative adaptation.
