Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am happy to help you with this.
It takes courage to change and to make choices that inspire you inner desires are those that you should always follow.
For many years, I have told people with similar questions that " It is too easy to stay" meaning that the comforts of what is know sometimes prevent us from moving in a direction.
i dont get you. Things are lot easier said than done. i am really really confused or perhaps dont have the courage to do what i desire.
Follow your passion, regardless of the end, you will gain great strength and insight and declare yourself in a way that is new and natural.
Barriers are common to change- it is the resistance to change that you must confront. When complete- the order will reveal itself
You define you = and your destiny- no one else-
part of the problem i am asking is this. the world is in turmoil and there are lots of unemployment etc, why do i want to give up what i have to go into things unknown. it may turn out good or worse, i may end up in a worse position financially
embrace this challenge and you will enrich your life.
what is it that you wish to do.?
All change has risk-
Risk and change go hand in hand-------what is more important..........to be tied at the dock or out in the open ocean sailing your own ship?
You dont understand. what right do i have to want to do this at a late age of 46. When i wanted to do this earlier, i did not have the finance. now i dont have as much financial responsibility and want this to improve myself and to knwo more about myself.
I have always been teaching business communication. I intend to take up courses in voice and performance in Vancouver and US to be a competent speaker and a creative storyteller.
Fantastic- follow your dream-------------
despite my age and the unknown.
We only have one life- the unknown is all we have anyway? Right?>
We are often locked in the comfortable know when in reality-----------nothing is truly known.. Tomorrow could be the last chance we have.
one should follow a dream despite the given uncertainties
You have just given the definition of a dream.............follow it-.
IF it was not present in your conscience mind--------it would not be real or viable. To dismiss is to dismiss your true self.
would you still recommend if i am not financially secure in doing the courses i intend.
Do you know what a tombstone is?
a simplistic structure that states that a person has come to rest in life or at least his mortal remains.
Have you ever seen one that says-----------"Gee, I wish I had spent another day at the office making money"
no i have not. nt yet anyway
That is my point- your focus is heartfelt and nothing that has to do with making money should take its place of such a DREAM.
The dream or talent wins every time. HAPPINESS!
it is better to have a dream and to have pursued it and then not. my friends and family think i am committing suicide of all sorts. i should just shut the dam mind and live with what i have.
Money and financial security has nothing to do with inner happiness........
I agree with you. It is your life -----------------not theirs.
Let them make their choices.
To live their lives as they wish- not as they wish you to live.
Honestly, is it suicide to want to do something different at a ripe age of 46. i would have to start all over again and compete with the very young and hale and hearty
46- 47- 48- 49-
you will continue to wonder if you should have tried.
If you have been successful making money once- you can do it again- Take a year and give it a try.
If you succeed- you will be forever happy. If not, you can always make money.
Dear Bill, i have been thinking of this for a decade. Please tell me something to hammer the thought that i should not let caution in the wind stop me. I should just pursue what i want in this life.
That is not what brings inner joy|
i do not want to be thinking that i should have done this in another decade. i want to do it now. i know that i will succeed and i know i will try very try to do what must be done
Mantra: "PURSUE WHAT I WANT IN LIFE"
It comes from you as it is you.
Keep repeating the Mantra that came from within you............don't wait to follow a dream- embrace it now- for it yours now and forever more.
Pursue it now.....That is all we have...........the gift of the present.
I wish you peace and the fulfillment of your dreams............Chase it now..................and do not look back.
Your future is ahead of you.........the past is gone.
i sitll dont know if i could be making a wrong move in leaving a secure job.
Then you are not ready----------give yourself permission- it can only come from you.
A secure job----------hmmmmmmmmmmm??????? what does that really mean-------------think about that- and how happy you are with such security..............
I wish you th ebest,
I appreciate your positive rating and wish you the very best.............
