How To Believe In Yourself If You Have Stopped Believing
Not getting what you want can be a wonderful stroke of luck
One of the most famous quotes but also one of the most frustrating. It is only when you look back at where you come from you realise that maybe that thing really wasn’t right for you. Instead, your life becomes more fulfilling due to things you didn’t want to happen.
In this article, we explore a video about dreams and choosing to follow them. We also look at why experiencing depression at some point in life can be a blessing, rather than a curse towards your dream.
Three ‘Failed’ Dreams
The founder of Seek A Therapy knows failure. He dreamed of being architect only to graduate as an architect in 2008. The worst economic recession in history and so no part 1 jobs available. He then tried teaching because it felt like a ‘safe’ job in times of economic uncertainty. He then found that the job totally destroyed his mental health and self esteem. It also took an affect on his finances and almost his life. But if any of those dreams had been realised, all of which he was capable of, he wouldn’t have had such fantastic experiences and set up Seek A Therapy. Failing and hardship, although not pleasent, are necesary experiences for many to be a success.
Without his hardship he wouldn’t put so much energy into a tool to help others ease their suffering.
When You Have Nothing This Can Be The Best Stroke Of Luck!
When you feel as though you have nothing, it is hard to pick yourself up at first. But then something hits you. Having nothing can be a wonderful stroke of luck! When you have no safety net, no backup, and nothing to lose, this is the perfect time to take risks!
If he had become an architect, doing what he was qualified to do he would not have discovered his passion for web and graphic design.
He also may not have pursued his desire to help others. He put his skills and experience together and made this website! Daily, it still grows. Driven by the thought, it can make a positive difference.
How To Believe In Yourself And Your Dream
The Seek A Therapy founder is very driven by the belief he should spend time attempting to make a positive difference to others. He is attempting to create a useful resource for people suffering similarly to how he did.
This is his dream…he combined his passions of art, IT, his desire to help others, and his many years of difficult experiences into a positive, you can do the same.
How To Believe in yourself? You need to keep your passion and drive in mind. What drives you? Is it the desire to make a difference like John, the Seek A Therapy founder or are you motivated by the desire for more wealth? Whatever it is, it has to really be felt with passion and keep this in mind as you pursue your dreams. This way, no one can deter you from you dreams and ambitions. There is a lot of naysayers along the way so it is important yo discover this drive, whatever it is.
