Do You Feel Like Life Is Passing You By?

Wednesday, December 12, 2018


If not now, WHEN?Throughout our lives, there are times when we have to put our dreams on hold. Perhaps it’s because of paying off debts or suffering from an illness. Oftentimes as a parent, you put your big dreams on hold to give your children the attention they need. Maybe the death of a loved one stops you in your tracks. Whatever the reason, you get sidetracked.

How do you know when it’s time to bring those dreams back to life? One big indicator is if it feel like everyone else is pursuing their dreams, and you’re being left behind. If those feelings are welling up in you, it’s time to take stock of where you are and where you want to be.

Being jealous of what everyone else is doing isn’t a good way to live your life. Being regretful about lost opportunities isn’t healthful either. Neither is settling for the status quo because “you’ve already missed your big chance.” How do you know that for a certainty? Whatever happened in the past is gone. Your time to shine is NOW!

Interestingly, a study published in Nature reveals that people often experience a hot streak at some point in their lives – like the man at the roulette wheel who keeps piling up his winnings, as his number keeps hitting. Or the basketball player who can do no wrong as he dunks ball, after ball, after ball. Or think about the recording artist who makes the big times, with one hit after another.

During our lives and careers, we all have slumps and we have hot streaks. You don’t have to be young to hit a hot streak. A hot streak is not necessarily about being massively productive. It’s more about the quality of your work.

I believe that the keys to success are

1. to follow your dreams,

2. to believe in them and

3. to be persistent even when others don’t support you.

As long as you keep trying, your best work may still be in your future. Never feel like you have nothing left to give.

Is low self-confidence or anxiety holding you back? I can help you find the courage and confidence to follow your dream. If you live near Portland, OR/Vancouver, WA please contact my Jantzen Beach office and schedule an appointment. I also offer online therapy if that works best for your busy schedule. If not now, when?
