“Life is like a unpaved road bumpy, unsafe, scary but if we’re brave enough to walk it the possibilities are endless”
When it comes to having a plan, goal or dream for our lives the thought of having a backup often times pops up in our mind. Many of us have heard many different views, opinions and debates about this topic. This is a conversation that most entrepreneurs, dreamers, culture changers or anyone trying to pursue something have asked themselves. Should I have a backup plan or should I stick to the motto “Plan B should be trying to figure out how make plan A work”.
A lot of my clients, friends, family or business associates ask me all the time should I have a backup or if I do have one am I truly going after my dreams or am I hovering around the fence. These questions can be subjective depending on the person but in my opinion we shouldn’t have a backup plan when it comes to following our dreams. Now we all know there are always exceptions to this rule, because we all have different circumstances that don’t allow us to not have a backup or plan b. On the other hand if you truly want your dreams to come true we have to put all our efforts in our dreams without having no doubt in our minds. Throughout my journey even through its still in the beginning stage I’ve noticed how much self-doubt or belief can play a role in our success.
What has being ‘Realistic Got You’
Some may argue that having a plan b is rational and the smart thing to do. They will tell us the pros of having a plan B just in case things doesn’t work out. Having a rational approach when comes to going after our dreams will give us a “rational or realistic level of success”. Being realistic when it comes to our dreams can be perceived as a negative connotation that leads us to believe self-conspicuously that whatever we want to achieve won’t actually happen. Having that extra doubt by having a plan B can limit us before we even get started. In the end we all have to ask ourselves what has being realistic gotten us?
We have to ask ourselves why do we need a plan B? If we only have a Plan A it has to work and we should be working to make it happen. That doesn’t mean quit our day job tomorrow but it means that we’re training our mind to believe that our dreams will happen. By getting rid of self-doubt and the fear of failure there is no limit to what we can achieve.
