Follow Your Dream

May 9, 2017

Since I am in my last year at college, the thoughts of my future race through my mind at supersonic speed. I know that I am a huge romanticist who enjoys cherishing lifelong dreams. If you are like me, you are probably trying to find answers to these questions:

  • What do I want to do for a living?
  • How much will I need to provide for myself?
  • Where do I want to live?
  • How many working hours am I willing to have?

It is totally fine to be uncertain about your job, accommodation, career, etc. For instance, I don’t know for sure who I’m going to be in future but now I want to try myself as a self-employed individual. I’d like to run my own online store while having a possibility to pursue other things.

My parents are not that much enthusiastic about my idea of a career path. With all their love for me, they struggle to see the benefits of self-employment. Much of the uncertainty arises from their heavy reliance on retirement plans and a health insurance. I can relate to their fears, but these benefits aren’t my current goals. If the job I choose doesn’t make me happy, I see no point in doing it simply for the sake of a health care and insurance package.

So ,here’s how you can deal with unsupportive parents and keep your dream alive:

Work Hard on Self-Education

If you are serious about your dream job, you should know what it takes to get a job. You will have to learn advantages and disadvantages of your choice. To aim for a certain school or career, you should be equipped with all the necessary knowledge and skills. That is why you’ll have to educate yourself to ensure you’re fully aware of the importance of seizing this particular opportunity.

Share Your Knowledge with Your Parents  

It is crucial to educate your parents about your career and life decisions. If you share everything you know with your mom and dad, it’ll be easier for them to accept your choices and see your side of the story. It might take a while, but your parents will appreciate you sharing both positive and negative aspects of your dream. They’ll see you as a responsible adult capable of making relevant decisions based on sound thinking and thorough research. Such a conversation will also help your parents understand you better.

Develop a Strategic Plan

You need a plan to work out an effective tactic. Start with deciding on a budget, personal and work-related expenses, and a back-up strategy so that you can achieve your dream step by step. Share your plan with your parents to demonstrate your commitment and perseverance.

Always Look for Opportunities

You should never give up on yourself. No matter how unsupportive your parents remain, you’ll need to keep on going and try harder to reach your aim.

I’m sure we are all bound to success if we manage to stay on a track leading to our goals. Hope these tips will help you find your way to the top!
