You're Never Too Old To Chase A Dream

I remember when I was in college way back when there were some 60 year old people in my class. These were people that never had the opportunity to get a college degree, but decided it was important to them, either as a goal in and of itself, or for a career change, and they decided to pursue it. They are a constant reminder to me that you're never too old to chase a dream. Here's some more from a reader on the topic.

Do you ever feel like you're too old to go and chase the dream that you want to? As though life has passed you by and you've settled down so much so that you feel like this is you now. It's one of the most common misconceptions that anyone can have. Your life is controlled by you and you can change your path at any time. All it means is that you have to put in some serious extra time and effort to make sure that you get there. Even if you have a car on finance, a house to pay for, and food to put on the table for children, you can still chase your dream. We're our own worst enemies when it comes to decision making, especially when it comes to big changes in life. We, as humans, are creatures of habit, and it's those habits that we're seeking to change today. We're going to show you exactly how you can do that! Keep on reading to find out more.

Build A Vision

Some people might tell you to think about goals to set, but we prefer to say to think of a vision. A vision will have all of your goals set out in it, but you're actively thinking about the path that you need to take to get there. You're thinking about the bigger picture. Part of it is goal setting, but set smaller goals rather than one big one. It might be something as simple as emailing to enquire about a course, or opening up a job search page to see what's available. Little steps will eventually lead to a bigger, overall goal! You also need to make sure that your vision includes where you want to be because of the move. It's all well and good knowing you want a career change, but where is that going to put you in 10 years time, and is that what you're going to want to be doing then? Thinking long term as well as short term is so important.

Understand Your Options

Once you have a vision in mind, you then need to think about your options. Many of you reading this will be thinking about going back into education so that you can work towards your dream job. Suffolk Online is just one of the educational information websites that you could visit to understand what courses are available to you. It might be that you want to try your hand at business, or accounting, or even teaching. There are so many courses to suit such a wide variety of goals!

Go For It!!

Finally, take the leap and go for it. We know how easy it is to come up with a million reasons why you can't, but you can if you really put your mind to it. Every obstacle that you have can be overcome if you put in the effort to make sure of that. Often we're our own worst enemies when it comes to big life changes!
