Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Pursuing Your Dreams In The Face Of Doubt
When pursuing your dreams, doubt can kick in due to the time it takes to see that dream unfold or because others advise you against the pursuit of what your heart wants because they think it’s not something realistic or achievable.
Through inner growth you get to explore those doubts and learn about the depths of the dreams you pursue, why you’re pursuing them, and if you believe in them from the heart. You also get to learn from others who are challenging your pursuit or telling you to do otherwise. Through your acknowledgment of where your doubt comes from and that others are expressing an opinion based on their unique person, inner core, and perspective; you are able to add to your vision and look for alternative ways to pursue your dreams (pursue ways that are in synergy with you and your inner core, not others).
Here are some ways to pursue your dreams in the face of doubt and continue on your inner growth journey.
- Anytime you question your dreams write down two to five reasons you are questioning them. Next to each reason you list, write about why you know the dreams you are pursuing are right for you and what you can do to remove those blocks from stopping you along the way.
- Make a list of all your dreams and next to each write about the feeling they bring about within. With those feelings in mind, make a note of which ones are more in tune with you and which ones aren’t. For those that aren’t in tune with your inner core, learn what they are saying about your deep belief regarding your dreams.
- Once a year make a brief mental note of how your dreams are unfolding. From what you write down, list one thing you can do to help this process along and remove doubt.
