Children often have ridiculous dreams. Some may have wanted to become the first person to walk on Mars. Some kids may have had dreams to find the elusive Bigfoot or Loch Ness monster, while others had dreams of doing nothing but to eat all the food that they can get their hands on.
As you grew up, you have found out these dreams are too hard to reach. Certain things get in the way like other priorities and financial capacities. As you move on to more practical things in life, you tend to lose interest in your childhood dreams. It maybe the price of growing up, but then again, there’s still hope if you manage to find that kid inside you.
You see, dreams are not simply things that you can think and ponder upon. Dreams are goals that you hope to achieve in life. And if you put in enough work, maybe you can achieve some of those dreams that you once had during your childhood.
Here are two tips to help you reaffirm your decision to pursue your childhood dream.
Give the Kid a Chance
Almost everyone still has their kid versions inside. They are just tucked inside, hidden away to make room for their adult versions. And if you find your current adult life dull and unfulfilling, maybe it is time to give the kid a chance?
Some dreams are impossible to do. This could be due to time and resource constraints or due to laws of nature itself. So that means, dreams of making the entire ocean chocolate is impossible. But maybe, there is an alternative to such dreams?
If chocolate oceans were the dream of the kid inside, then maybe you can buy a franchise of an ice cream kiosk. Maybe perhaps then your childhood sweet tooth is finally satisfied. Or instead of becoming an astronaut on Mars, you can pay a visit to NASA and learn more about the space program. They might even some career opportunities available related to your field. And instead of finding Bigfoot, why not dedicate your life to fostering stray animals? This way, you get to help the poor animals in your neighborhood.
There’s a Reason Why You Had Those Dreams as a Kid
As a child, your mind was more innocent and your eyes filled with wonder. There is a reason you had those dreams as kids. You may have seen something that you wanted for yourself. You may also have seen something that this world needed.
If you give your younger self a shot, you might be in for a surprise for just how well you do if you act on those dreams. It only takes a little bit of effort, patience, and dedication to make any dream a reality.
Your childhood dreams may be ridiculous to think of now as adults. But before, as kids, it seemed like it was possible to do. Maybe it still is. You will never know until you try and make your move to make those dreams a reality.
