Fear Can Kill Dreams

Fear Can Kill Dreams

When it comes to life, we have choices to make every day, choices that require action. However, many of us let fear take over and make those decisions for us. We become worried about what people will think, about failure, or many other factors. 

Then, we get disappointed with our decisions and feel as if it’s too late to change them. In such situations, our freedom feels inhibited and we become frustrated. 

Without personal freedom, we can’t grow or develop as people. Therefore, the only way to live your dream life and gain personal freedom is to take charge of your life and overcome fear.

Ambition Can Fuel Dreams

Ambition Can Fuel Dreams

Ambition is the fuel that makes us go further and farther in life, always looking to improve it. Without it, setting and achieving goals is impossible.

Ambition drives our imagination to wander and create new, exciting scenarios and goals in our minds. Then, motivation comes in. However, this one is hard to maintain. To do that, you must set a routine and be disciplined about it.

Although some days you won’t feel like getting up and doing the work, pushing through will be worth it in the long run, as you’ll become motivated once again when you notice yourself not giving up.

Enjoy The Present Moment

Enjoy The Present Moment

As children, our job was to explore the world and laugh as we did so. As we grow up, the task doesn’t change, it just becomes more challenging to fulfill, and so we lose our ability to keep our eyes on what’s most important – living our life.

As we grow older, we learn more and more about the world, leaving behind old practices and upgrading our mindset. However, there are certain things in life that we should unlearn, or never let go of in the first place. What I mean by that is, you should reconnect with your inner child and remember how it feels to live in the moment.

The Inner Child: Positive Thoughts

The Inner Child: Positive Thoughts

Don’t let negative thoughts ruin your days. For example, if you feel like taking on a new project or doing something out of the ordinary, don’t let your fear of failure and over-realistic mind ruin it for you.

Similar to a child, keep your curiosity and motivation alive, and listen to your gut. More often than not, it will guide you to your purpose and your source of happiness, unlike your well-trained, rational mind, who likes to follow patterns and society’s rules.

A Glorious, Extraordinary Life

Whatever your definition of success and fulfillment looks like, it’s time for you to pursue it and do everything in your power to achieve it. Whether you’re dreaming about becoming a world-renowned artist, traveling to every country on earth, or building your own house and starting a family, go for it. Life is too short to fear living it.

Define Your Passion

Define Your Passion

The key is to focus on what you’re passionate about. If you’re still trying to figure out what your burning desires are, try asking your friends or family for their opinion. When they think of you, what is it that they consider you’re great at? Discovering your talents in relation to your passion is particularly important, as it dictates the path you should take in life.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
