Do you remember those dreams you had when you were a child? Those dreams that focused around what you would like to become when you grew up. Now, tell me…are you living those dreams? Part of the dreams? Did you even act on those dreams or have they been pushed aside somewhere that you no longer remember? Are they at the bottom of your mind?
At this stage in your life, do you feel as if your life is missing something? If that is the case, you might want to take some steps back and dig out your childhood dreams from wherever they’re buried. There’s a big chance you may still carry those dreams with you and often times are linked to those things that you are passionate about and your life purpose.
“When you have a childhood dream that still burns and tugs at your heart when you’re an adult, you owe it to yourself to pursue and achieve this dream.” – Robert Cheeke
Take time out and really think as far back as you possibly can and allow your childhood memories to come back to you. Back in those days, did you want to stand in front of a class and teach, fly a plane, be a lawyer, a nurse, doctor or just wanted to travel around the world? Maybe you just wanted to be a singer or write friction stories all day.
Certainly, your childhood dreams may not have been sensible when you think about them now. However, most people find that there is an element of their childhood dreams in the life that they are living now. When you have uncovered your dreams, ask yourself some questions… are any aspects of those dreams now somewhat more reachable? If that is the case, you should follow it through and try your utmost to make at least one of them come true.
If your childhood dream was about you becoming a musician, an actor in a film or an author writing children’s stories, why not start right now and follow your dreams? There is no such thing as been too old to try something new, and it is never too late to take up a new hobby.
Are Your Childhood Dreams Now Reachable?
As a grown-up, what are your gifts and talents? Can you see how they can help you achieve your dreams? Our childhood dreams are often times pointers to our passion and life purpose. When we forget our childhood dreams we end up ignoring our life purpose and eventually forget what it is and so we end up doing things that do not bring us fulfillment. Let’s say as a child you loved writing and still do but at some point in your life you dreams of travelling the world on a ship. If your circumstances now does not give you room to do the travelling round the world, how about you writing a novel based on this, after all you love writing?
Perhaps you are fond of art and graphics and very good at it. Is there any chance you could fuse this with an old dream? How about teaching school children how to become a graphic artist. Maybe use your skills to support a local charity.
The fact that you are now an adult does not mean that your days of dreaming are over. For as long as you are still alive, you can dream and still have great desires. Combine your life experiences with your desires and you will be amazed to see that you have created a new passion and found your purpose in your life.
Following ones dream at any age takes risks and courage. My question to you is, are you finally ready to make one of your childhood dreams come true? The truth is that if you don’t take a chance on yourself, you are missing out on fulfilling your life purpose. No-one but you can do this for you!
