Fickle Finances

One of the reasons you might be delaying pursuing your dreams is finances. As we get older, we may need to spend our money on other things rather than the pursuit of our dreams. Let's face it, the cost of living is high and that may mean that the dream has been put on hold indefinitely. If it's a dream you still hold dear then there are ways to save so that you can make your dream come true at some point in your life.


Little Cherubs

Having children is a wonderful experience and will make many people feel complete. However, sometimes children aren't always planned and it may be one of the reasons you're delaying your dreams. Don't let children stand in your way of pursuing your goals and dreams. Instead, let it spur you on to achieve them so that you can be an inspiration to your children and show them that you shouldn't let anything stop you.


Partner Pressure

Partner pressure is another reason you may be delaying your dreams. Partners can stand in the way of dreams and goals but this can sometimes be for selfish reasons. If someone really cares for you, they will let you be you and will allow you to pursue those dreams you have. Don't let a partner stand in your way.


Doubts and Fears

This is one of the most common reasons for delaying the pursuit of your dreams. When it comes to our goals and dreams for the future, we are actually our own worst enemy. Don't stand in your own way and know that you can do anything you set your mind to.


The Right Time

You may be thinking that you need to wait for the 'right time' before you do something. Maybe you keep delaying your dreams for when your child is a certain age or when you have done this or that. Remember, the time is now and if you delay it you might regret it. Take the steps to achieve your goals and dreams now. So don't delay, start today!


People's Opinions

People love to give their opinions about the ways in which other people are living their lives. Often, these are people who don't like to hear opinions about their own lives. Some people will always judge what you're doing but be strong and listen to yourself rather than others.


Past Experiences

Maybe you have had some bad past experiences that mean you are delaying pursuing your dreams. It can be easy to let these negative experiences stand in your way but the key is not to let them stop you. Instead, allow them to make you stronger and spur you on even more.

Do these reasons sound familiar? Can you think of any other reasons people might delay pursuing their dreams?

Life is short and we don't want to wake up old one day and wonder "what if"..I have started doing my business this year and quit my high paying regional job working with one of the biggest brands globally and I have no regrets even though I loved my ex company, because I am fulfilling my dreams!

For my dreams - it's always finances:/

Beautiful and true comment Matea!

Ditto @ Matea 🙌

Once I realized I was my own worst enemy I just said I have to do it. And coming from some on with a small budget for my own business. I still say do it! It's so many things you can do while your saving or waiting for a loan to come through. You'll be so much happier. And having kids I would come up with every excuse and put everyone before me. Only to feel alone and miserable. Now I can show my kids that no matter what set backs you have you can always have a come back.

I had those thoughts too, what will people think.. But then I almost died and ended in hospital and survived and recovered, and I was looking at the wall thinking: omg, I could have died today. And then I figured it out. You have to do what YOU want to do. People are not important. Their opinions can't hurt you. But it will hurt you if you come to the end of your life and realize you are regreting that you heaven't followed your dream.
