Big dreams mean bigger sacrifice.
It also means bigger failure sometimes. Dreams get crushed and in some instances, our spirits, too.
We are resilient, and we may experience setbacks after setbacks, but we always get up each time we fall.
During moments when you feel beaten and seemingly hopeless, don’t give up. It may feel like it is hard to keep going but with big dreams, you cannot afford to. When you think you cannot go on any longer and your dreams have been crushed, this is how you can recover:
Acceptance is the key
When something gets in the way of making your dreams come true, instead of being in denial, accept what happened. The moment you accept the truth is the same moment you can collect your thoughts and start over.
Deal with what happened
People deal with things differently, and it is up to every one of us how we will face each setback. It is not easy to get back up when your dreams have been crushed. How do you deal with it? By trying again and not giving up even when you have failed the second time. Sometimes, it takes more than one or two attempts before you hit the jackpot.
Learn from your mistakes
Learning from your mistakes is as crucial as getting back up when you fall. Nobody likes failure, and we all want our dreams to come true, but before we can achieve what we are dreaming of, learning must first happen, and this occurs during moments when we feel that our dreams are crushed and everything is out of reach.
Don’t beat yourself
Things happen for a reason, and sometimes, they are beyond your control. Do your best and when it still doesn’t work out, try again. Do not hate and beat yourself because the result is not what you would have wanted or that things did not go your way. Remember, you can always start over.
May this help in making your dreams come true even when you have to deal with failure and crushed dreams once or twice.
