Gerald Freemanabout this book: Whose Life Are You Living, Anyway?
I wonder how many of us have sacrificed our dreams in order to live a life we think is more realistic. Therein lies the problem, for generations we have been brought up to believe that dreams are fictional ideas, usually unattainable and not something to be seriously pursued- unless of course, you happen to be a child prodigy and born with a divine gift.
Sadly, many succumb to this ideology, often through their own decision-making and a need for the apparent security, which comes with having a normal job. However, a great number of us are bullied into it by well-meaning family members, peers and society in general. Those who are not confident enough to fight back, resign themselves to the fact that life wasn’t really supposed to be fun, anyway. I fought back and my mindset changed completely, I felt no pressure to find a career, settle down, plan for the future- I just let things happen and life came to me.
If only parents could buck the trend to allow their children time off between school and university, thus giving them the chance to find a future that inspires them, instead of encouraging them to settle for a life they are not even sure they want at that age. Many young people do not go on to live up to their true potential; they are stifled and persuaded that a dream equates to a fantasy. We all know how many people reach middle age and have a sudden realization that they are in the wrong life. From there their lives are full of regret and worst case scenario they become mean and angry, they cause suffering to those around them and often more permanent damage is done.
Let your child be unique, encourage them to make their dreams come true so they will be able to look back on their lives with contentment, instead of resentment.
