Have you felt the negativity of this world pulling you away from your dreams? With a constant “your future career is merely a dream, not a reality” focus that makes you want to give up on your passion?

It isn`t uncommon to feel such doubt.

But it is important to stay focused on your potential and not on your lack of accomplishment.

 

Tune out the negativity

No matter what career path you are pursuing, you need to capture the negativity around you and replace it with positive emotions

Positive emotions open up new possibilities.

People who are positive tend to be happier, healthier and learn better.

 

Create Milestones

No dream can be accomplished in such a short term.

It can be discouraging for you if you don`t set realistic time frames that it will take you to reach this dream.

Just like going on a long road trip, take pit stops along the way before reaching your destination.

 

Find a mentor who can help you stay on track

 It can get overwhelming at times dealing with stress from school, work and your social life that sometimes you can get off track.

Find someone you can trust – someone who can share his/her wisdom with you and has generosity of spirit.

Make sure your mentor wants you to succeed as much as you want yourself to succeed and who will praise you for your accomplishments and help you recover from your setbacks.

 

Work your goals into your daily plan

Do something toward achieving your goals everyday.

Whether that means going to class, work or an internship, make sure you just take at least 15 minutes out of your day to focus on your dreams.

If you give your dream daily attention, then you have a better chance of achieving it.

 

Avoid conversations where you have to justify yourself

There will be plenty of people along your journey who question your dreams.

Sometimes they question because they have the same dream but not the same passion, and they are looking to you for their next step.

You don’t need a standing ovation because you are enough right now.

Care less about who you are to others and only about who you are to yourself.

    “If you give your dream daily attention, then you have a better chance of achieving it.” such a great suggestion, even easy to implement. No one can excuse him/herself if he/she cannot gather even this little amount of time!
