Get the courage to pursue your dream career

Updated on September 10, 2012

Take the leap of faith


Put your thoughts into action

For many people, the idea of quitting their day job for a career they enjoy is an intriguing yet scary one. It can be difficult to chase your dreams if you are comfortably settled in a well paying job that provides for yourself and your family. The important thing to remember is that we only live once. Make the most of the time you have and be willing to take risks.

Of course you must be sensible in your decisions, for example do not think that you can just quit your job and take on the career you hope to conquer, with no money saved at all. Take responsibility and ensure you save a desired amount of money to cover your bills and commitments each month. This way you can put all of your time and effort into your dream career without having to worry about the stress of paying outgoing debts with no steady income.

Your main focus if you are thinking about pursuing your dream career should be to commit and have a huge amount of determination. Do not expect to succeed with little effort. However, you should always have belief in yourself that you can do it. Take a look at other successfull individuals who worked against the odds and ignored any negativity from others just to prove them wrong.

Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer and U.S. president. After finishing a single year of formal schooling, he self-taught himself trigonometry, and solely read Blackstone in his quest to become a lawyer. Many others have succeeded in their quest for a better, more enjoyable life. Why can't you?

Never let anybody discourage you when thinking about pursuing your dream. It is the discouragement from others that can lead dreamers off track, resulting in the decision to stay with what they are comfortable with. Life should be about challenges, happiness and fulfilment. Envision a career that you adore, a hobby that can earn you money, something to leave you feeling content and satisfied. There is some sense in the words of others who try to stop you from chasing your dream due to funds and affording a comfortable lifestyle, which is why you should save money beforehand and go for it. If you do not try, you will never know.

If you're unsure about how to take the leap of faith and dive into a new career with new prospects, do a little research about the field you have particular interest in.This way you can take tips from others who have succeeded in these professions, and understand the appropriate ways to begin gaining experience in that field and getting your foot in the door.

Whatever your passion, whatever your dream, never hesitate in chasing it. Live your life for you and noone else. Brush off any ambiguity or disbelief from others, and prove that you have what it takes to make a better and thoroughly exhilarating new life for you and your family. Put your thoughts into action! What are you waiting for?

      Great advice. I so agree with you. Taking a risk and pursuing your dream will pay off the majority of time. Being happy with your job is the most important factor, far more important than money. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
