Putting Your Dreams On Hold
I was surfing the internet one day and I came across a quote from Lady GaGa that said:
“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore.”
I think this is an interesting point because I talk to so many women that are not living the life of their dreams for this very reason. I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing if you decide to make a sacrifice for the sake of a relationship, just as long as you’ve mapped out a plan to reach your dreams at a later date. People put things on hold all of the time, like taking a year off of college, postponing a wedding, waiting to have children, and so forth. The key is to ALWAYS have a plan for returning to your dream.
So in the meantime, while you have things on hold, you can do research of other people who have accomplished your dream and see how they did it. You can email people you come across and see if they will grant you an interview for you to ask them specific questions of how they accomplished the dream and if they have any tips for someone just starting out. You can conduct this interview over the phone, Skype, even through email correspondence.
Another thing you can do in the meantime is write out your plan. Come up with steps you need to take to accomplish your dream. This doesn’t have to be perfect, but it’ll serve as a starting point for you when you’re ready. You can always make changes to the steps as needed. Always keep your dreams at the forefront of your mind and don’t allow the flame of hope to die out.
You have something inside of you that the world needs, and we are all waiting for you to fulfill your dreams so that we can all benefit.
How do you feel about a woman putting her dreams on hold to follow a man?
