You know what I’ve noticed? There are so many people who are stuck in comfortable lives that feel miserable. Everything looks good but inside, they’re slowly dying and what is keeping them stuck is often the fear of following their dreams. So if you’re one of these people, today I’m gonna tell you about the cost of not pursuing your dreams.

Hey, everyone, this is Dominique Andersen. Welcome to StretchandBloom Soundbite where in five minutes or less, I will give you a quick tip to create a life you love.

So I’m going to a share with you five things you’re missing out on when you’re not pursuing your dreams. The first one is the benefit of getting out the problem, getting out of the pain – relief. You’re missing out on relief. That’s simple, that’s obvious.

Number two, it’s empowering to take your destiny in your own hands. So the more you stay stuck, the more you accept your situation, the less capacity you have to deal with your issues, the less power you have. Pursuing your dreams allows you to reclaim some power.

The third is actually a financial benefit. People tend to think of a comfortable situation as safe, but if you look around you these days, safety doesn’t really exist. So, you know, the benefit of following your dreams is not really so you’ll become a millionaire overnight but the point is, it will force you to gain more financial literacy and actually learn how to protect yourself; diversify your assets and weather the storms of life – make your more financially empowered.

Fourth, you’re missing out on the joy of doing you. You know you are special, you are unique and not following your dreams is basically putting you on hold. So that’s something you’re missing out, think about that.

And finally, you’re missing out on the pride of having accomplished something big. Basically, not pursuing your dreams is keeping you in a space of being misaligned with yourself and being dissatisfied. So if you were looking for encouragement to step out of your comfort zone, I really want to use this five minutes to tell you safety is an illusion and by making an uncomfortable situation your comfort zone, you’re actually training yourself to accept less than you deserve and you’re weakening your ability to overcome challenges and you’re dimming your life.

So, be brave, be bold and don’t allow fear to rob you of your life. Take a stand for yourself and take a stand for your dreams. That’s it for today.
