Living your dream takes more than an idea. It takes will power to choose a different path.
Too many people go through life accepting the status quo, believing that dreams are pointless, that change is impossible. But what if it didn't have to be that way?
Doing the same thing
Most people do the same thing every week. They wake up, go to work, come home from work, sit on the couch watching Netflix, and then go to sleep and wake up in the morning to do it all over again. Overall they hate their life and feel like what they do is meaningless.
Instead of waking up, going to work, and continuing your routine, do something different. Take a new route to work. Call in sick and just stay home for no apparent reason. Don't go straight home to your couch after work. Try being out in nature or meeting new people in a unique place in town. By changing what you usual do, you will gain a new perspective on your life. Suddenly everything you do won't seem so pointless and you will enjoy life a little more.
Celebrating the little things
Once you have the correct perspective, celebrate it. You have successfully learned a little bit more about yourself as a person. Now you can make proper career and life decisions and not feel so trapped. Or maybe you choose the status quo. Change isn't always necessary, but now instead of just accepting your lot in life, you actively choose it. By taking these small steps, you might not change the world, but you will certainly change your world.
