7 Reasons Why You Should Chase Your Dreams

I firmly believe that each of us has an inner compass—one that will ultimately guide us in the direction that will make us happiest.

Here’s a quick but effective list of the reasons why I’ve found dream-chasing to be worth my while:

  1. You’ll undoubtedly gain new skills.
  2. These skills will be interesting to you.
  3. You’ll have fewer regrets.
  4. You’ll take more risks.
  5. You’ll fail.
  6. But you’ll become stronger in the process.
  7. If you don’t chase your dreams, no one else will do it for you.

Number 7 is what really sets me into action—just knowing that no matter how much I’m loved by my family or friends, that only I can set myself up to reach my dreams.

Sometimes it’s lonely knowing that you’re on your own in that respect, but at the same time it can be liberating to know that you’re in charge.

One of my personal dreams includes the desire to work for myself.

I hate the idea of someone else being in control of where I put my time and energy. Do you ever get that feeling?

This summer, in lieu of a stable part-time, I’ve opted to follow my intuition and am putting more work into finding a sustainable business model of some sort.

For me, this could mean freelancing or producing a product. Either way, I’ll let you know how these pan out.

Happy dream-chasing everyone!
