How Long Would You Work Towards Your Dream?
How long would you work to make your dream come true?
I loved this question discussed in Dan Miller’s podcast “A Positive Mind Repels a Negative Life.”
Three very important questions were asked that made me think.
1. If you had to work towards your dream for one year, would you do it?
2. If you had to work towards your dream for five years, would you do it?
3. If you had to work towards your dream for 10 years, would you do it?
But, what really caused me to pause was when Dan shared this: Let’s say it takes 10 years and you’re 3o now. That means by the time you’re 40, you could be living your dream. Those 10 years, will go by fast.
And, what I thought in my head after that was this: “There is STILL so much life to be lived after 40. So many lives I could impact.”
What I’m currently navigating is this question: How do I balance patience in making my dream come true and tenacity to make it real sooner than later? What’s the right balance? How many sacrifices are appropriate? I don’t have the answers yet, but I’m lovin’ the journey!
What’s your dream? How long would you work towards it? How important is it, especially when you consider “a life well lived.”
