If you’re lucky, you will get up and go to work each day and totally love what you do. Sadly, there are a lot of people the world over that don’t feel this way. There are a lot of people who are unhappy at work and are just trying to get through the day so they can come home with a pay cheque to put a roof over their heads and food on their table.
A lot of us have a dream career but feel that we are too late to pursue it. But the question is, is it ever too late? Really?
A few of you who follow me on social media may be aware that I have been bigging my husband up recently. You see he had a dream and he’s recently pursued it. For longer than I care to remember he has wanted to be a Personal Trainer. I’ve been a gym widow for the best part of two years and the bigger the gym obsession became, the bigger the desire for a career change became for him.
I’m proud of him because he recognised that he wanted to do something about this and he went out there and did it. He gave himself a timescale. He signed up for the course and he worked damn hard. He signed himself up for the exams at the earliest opportunity and he put the graft in. Six months after signing up for the course, he became a qualified personal trainer. How’s that for impressive?
So you see, if you want something bad enough, you can make it happen. If you have the desire to make something work and you have the positivity to go with it, you can achieve your dream.
The hard work isn’t over, at all. Now we have to devise a business plan and the mission will start to make the dream a reality. The qualifications are there, now we need to make this into a full-time career and that won’t be easy. In fact, it could well be harder than the actual exams themselves! Thankfully for him, he’s married to a social media award winner who’s also pretty good at throwing a website together, so he’s saved himself a small fortune there!
Walt Disney once said:
All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.
Walt was a wise man.
It’s time to stop dreaming and start doing. What dream are you going to pursue today? Let me know in the comments.
