7 Reasons Why It’s Never Too Late To Follow Your Dream
When people first come across the Law of Attraction, their hearts and minds often immediately think of one specific thing that they’d love to manifest in their lives. However, the next thought is often “But I can’t do that”. You may come up with all kinds of excuses, from the belief that you’re too old to find love to the assumption that you don’t have the skills to reach the top in the career of your choosing.
Luckily, the truth is that it’s never too late to follow your dream. Here are seven reasons why you should believe you can use the Law of Attraction to manifest whatever you want.
1. Your Identity Is Not Set In Stone
You probably have lots of internalized ideas about who you are and where your limits might be. However, many of these will be inaccurate. For example, some of your insecurities will come from difficult times in childhood. Others come from a repeated negative message you received in your formative years.
Think about what you believe about yourself. Now, take a critical look at whether these things are really true. In many cases, people will have projected their own fears and disappointments onto you. Are you going to let those destructive beliefs hold you back? You have limitless potential for change and growth, so celebrate that fact and dream big.
2. Small Steps Create Big Changes
One of the most common reasons for abandoning dreams is that they simply seem too huge to achieve. However, this is a highly intimidating way of looking at the situation. It’s equally accurate (and much more manageable) to think of following your dream as taking a series of significant but small steps.
For example, challenge yourself to write down the path to success in ten stages. Then look at the each of the stages. Not so unrealistic now, is it?
Go ahead and read some of the best Law of Attraction success stories. Think about what the central people have in common. So often, they’ve been through decades of disappointment and led thoroughly unfulfilled lives. They have discovered manifestation techniques in middle age or later.
This suggests not only that it’s never too late to try and get what you want, but that you might even have an advantage if you’ve been through tough times. You have the resilience, life experience and self-knowledge to pursue your dreams with grit and determinations.
4. You Can Avoid Regret
When people are interviewed on their deathbeds or write about their lives in autobiographies, it is often observed that major regrets tend to relate to things that were not done.
In older age, it’s likely that you will be uncomfortable with the idea that you didn’t ever try to do the thing that you loved or attempt to obtain what you truly wanted.
It is painful to feel like you haven’t ever found your true purpose. But you don’t ever need to feel this way! Make today the first day of your new journey towards avoiding regret.
5. It Secures Your Legacy
On a related note, whether (and how) you follow your dreams has a huge influence on the mark you leave on this world. You might be motivated by the thought of how you will be remembered, or what you can secure for younger members of your family. Whatever your reason, choosing to aim high and live passionately has the best chance of creating a meaningful legacy.
Thinking about the type of lasting impression you’ll leave can also help you figure out what your dream is if you’re not sure what you want from your life.
6. Steps Towards Your Dream Are Never Backwards Steps
Another common worry is that if you follow your dreams, you’ll be “taking steps back”. This excuse often comes up when people are at the top of careers they hate, or in relationships that leave them cold.
However, what looks like backward steps in your old life can more productively and accurately be seen as forwarding steps in the brand new life you’re creating.
7. Others Will Stand With You
Finally, no matter what it is you want to do with your future, you can find others who will accompany you on your journey.
Some will be people who are already in your life and want to support you in becoming the best version of yourself, while others will be new friends and partners you’ll meet along the road to success.
And don’t forget, there are also members of the worldwide Law of Attraction who are similarly determined to take control of their lives and create something wonderful.
Even if they’re working on something completely different from your dream, they will be there to cheer you on and share their most effective manifestation techniques.
