“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” ― Oprah Winfrey
Dreams are magical. They are full of passion, hard work and hopes. “Follow your dreams” is a very easy statement to make, but one of the toughest things you could do. It involves a lot of risks, a leap of faith, time and sacrifice. But what is important is that you don’t stop no matter what. There would be people to discourage, there would be times where your health would fail but come what may do not stop believing in yourself and your dreams.
Here are four reasons why you should start chasing your dreams in your twenties:
Yeah, simple. Is it not? See, so far we had got our happiness defined all wrong. But each to his own again. For many of my friends, the month-end salary crediting message is one of their most happy moments, I thought it was for me too. But I discovered, it wasn’t. My happiness lies in various other things.
In your twenties with lesser responsibilities and more flexibility, it is easier to make mistakes, take risks. While it isn’t too late to chase your dreams, it is always good to begin early. You can fail better, make more mistakes, learn more and move ahead with greater determination.
3. Life is Too short
Life is too short to keep postponing and to be waiting for that one perfect day when you feel the time is right. That right time will never come. You just have to begin and the rest will follow. Life is too short to think about what people will think of your decisions and their judgements. You can’t please just everyone. Follow your heart and move on.
4.Mental Peace & Satisfaction
My notion of a job was financial independence and financial independence only. But somewhere down the lane, I realised it was more than that, it needed mental peace, happiness and satisfaction. While I agree money is important, it isn’t the most important aspect. When you do what you love to do, everything follows, time isn’t a constraint, waking up early would not be taxing and you would be you.
An extra set of Gyaan my Mark twain today 😀
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the
things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from safe harbour.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
As someone in his late thirties, I can say I fully understand and support this post. So many chances missed in life that I do look back upon… never stop chasing the dreams of the twenties…
All lessons that come through our rough experiences are the best 🙂 They help us grow. I am so glad that more people are looking past the money aspect of happiness and jobs. That true satisfaction lies not in these things. This was a good read for me this Saturday, Ramya 🙂
Spot on. Fail often, fail fast. Take a chance. Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Don’t live by what others think. Follow your dreams.
I agree with the part about chasing dreams. 20s or 30s never too late 🙂 I was 26 when I quit my job to take up a new field and it worked for me. Today, I am glad I took that chance 🙂
I’m on my 30s. I agree on this artcle that you should chase your dream on your 20s. Lucky are those who discovered their passion on earlier stage. Because when you’re on 30s and have your own family, chasing your dream is hard because there are too much things you need to consider like consistent money flow. My advice is explore a lot of things earlier, discover things, and chase your dreams.
