I don’t always get the opportunity to listen to the Steve Harvey morning radio show. After dropping my nephew off at school this morning Steve was discussing on his show this morning about the importance of talking to your children about their dreams. He made a great point, explaining that our children are constantly being influenced so every month or two we need to inquire with them about their dreams. We all are influenced by our peers, television, social media on a daily basis. Therefore our minds change our visions are affected then our goals change. Not only should we discuss this with our children but with ourselves, family and friends. We need to determine if we are still on the right track are we following our dreams.
The big question is, is your passion still motivating you to progress in it?
Do you still have a desire to move forward in that dream or has something inspired a new dream or an old dream that was put to the side? I know we all want to motivate the next person and generation but if we aren’t pursuing our own passionate dreams how can we help anyone else to go after their dreams.
Check in with yourself ever so often to make sure your own passionate dream is what you truly desire to be doing. Just like the youth we too are influenced by other things and people that may spark a flame to do something different.
Once you have made certain that you are fulfilling your dreams, then you can assist others with following theirs. If you have children, nieces,nephews,god-children and mentees make sure you check with them on a regular basis about their dreams and what they aspire to do. Just like you check on their educational progress you should check on their dreams and help them pursue those dreams. Don’t assume that the idea of a doctor, lawyer or athlete is still what they want you never know they may have decided that they want be the next President or entrepreneur.
Sometimes Dreams Change
