When should i give up on my dream

Why did you give up on me?
Why did you kill me?
Why did you let me die?

Every morning and every night some people listen to such screams coming from their dead dreams then act as if they heard nothing. People who gave up on their dreams might think that life will go on and that time will help them forget about them but in fact that never happens. (see Does time really heal wounds?)

Your current state of feeling is the resultant of what you have now, your past experiences and your future expectations. When you have a certain dreams then this adds a lot of positivity to your overall state because it gives you hope for a better tomorrow.

As soon as people give up on their dreams their future expectations turn negative and the door is opened to depression. In my article why i am depressed i explained how depression can be nothing more than a state of loss of hope you reach after giving up on your dreams or after finding out that you can't reach them.

So should you give up on your dreams even if they seemed impossible?
In this article i will tell you when you should give up on your dreams.

Should i give up on my dream?

He always wanted to be a famous basket ball player. That was his childhood dream.
When he became 21 years old he became so confused as a result of not being able to manage his time well between the basket ball matches and his college. Everyone told him that he should take the guaranteed path and focus on his career and that's why he gave up on his dream.

He tried to act as if he is OK but his subconscious mind was screaming at him out loud everyday. He never managed to realize that this depression he has been suffering from since he gave up his dream was his subconscious mind's way of screaming at him.

Because of this horrible mood he was suffering from he didn't manage to study well and he didn't get good grades. Moreover his subconscious mind started some kind of a protest in order to prevent him from giving up his dream.

Whenever he went to study he found himself unable to concentrate without knowing why. This problem always puzzled and he never managed to know the reason behind it. (see Why can't i concentrate when i study)

When a dream is so important to you then your subconscious mind will fight against you if you decided to give it up and that's why you must never give up on an important dream unless living depressed for the rest of your life is not something that concerns you.

The right time to give up on your dream

What if your dream wasn't reachable? Or what if you spent years trying to reach your dream but didn't manage to?

When i said you that you shouldn't give up on your dreams i didn't mean that you should forget about flexibility or keep trying even if your methods weren't working but what i meant is that you must be flexible without giving up on your dream.

In the Ultimate guide to becoming rich i explained how i always had the dream of becoming a self made millionaire. I joined the stock market and i didn't give up my dream even though i was losing a lot of money.

After few years and tremendous loses i decided to quit the stock market but i never gave up the dream of becoming rich! Few years later i managed to make my dream become true and i managed to become a self made millionaire through my website.

I was flexible enough to give up a certain road but i never gave up the destination.
If you have a certain dream then you should never give up on it but instead be flexible and keep changing your ways until you reach it.

Why did you kill me? Why did you give up on me?
I am sure you don't want to live your whole life listening to such screams just because you decided to give up on your dream one day.

I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.

In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
