I used to think that one day there will be this ONE perfect day where I will have everything set up and then I will be ready to go. On this specific day I would have made enough experience in the "real world", I would have saved up a lot of money and most likely this would have taken me years before I could pursue my dream by then.
And while I think you should have a backup plan, or at least some money on the side that you can live off for a while once you quit your job, this one specific day won't just magically appear out of the blue. You will never be completely ready, to be honest.
Actually, if you continue to wait for years and years because people tell you so BECAUSE they don't know any better unless they know what they are talking about, you will miss out on so many great opportunities.
And chances are that you won't go after your dreams after all because you simply accepted the fact that you will never become your own boss and you will convince yourself that your current situation is just fine.
Why would you want to continue living a life that others want you to live?
Why would you want to put your happiness as the last point on your list of priorities?
I mean I get it. Maybe there are circumstances where you have to put it on hold, where you can't pursue your dream...at least not just yet.
BUT if there is nothing that serious that is holding you back, then why not at least TRY to go after your dreams?
I mean if all fails, you can always go back to what you used to do.
You have nothing to lose.
But at least you had the courage to try. You will always be one step ahead of the ones that never tried these things.If you never try, you never know. And if you never know, years..or decades from now..you start to wonder what could have happened if you actually listend to YOURSELF and YOURSELF only and have pursued your dreams, living the life you always wanted to live. -xo, Chantal
