Many of us may realize that we’re not where we should be or that we have far more to offer the world than we currently give. But, giving ourselves permission to realize those dreams and act on them can be challenging.
We may think it’s too late to start over, and taking that leap of faith can be scary; you have valid reasons for this. You have responsibilities and commitments, and starting over may jeopardize those things.
- You need to be able to pay the bills
- Take care of your loved ones
- Maintain the lifestyle that you’ve grown comfortable living
All of these reasons are entirely valid and are why here at Achieve Potential, we recommend small baby steps while on the journey to realize your dreams, rather than taking large leaps of faith.
Making the choice to change your life doesn’t just include a career, as that can be scary and lead to unhappiness. Instead, choosing to make changes in all five  areas of holistic success will help you move forward in a way that doesn’t feel precarious. This way, you’re not putting yourself at risk for complete failure.
Going back to the topic of choice for a moment, please think of choice as being a synonym for permission in this context. You’re not choosing to give up everything you’ve built so far. But instead, you’re permitting yourself to dream, explore, and live.
You’re permitting yourself to be happy.
“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.”– Nelson Mandela
