5 Sad Reasons Why People Give up on Their Dreams


It is sad  when people give up their dreams not because the dream is not realistic but because the dreamer gave up too soon. The following are 5 reasons why  most  people give up on their dreams.

1.They Doubt their Abilities

They have a big dream in front of them but they have not started chasing it because they don’t believe they have the abilities to do it. Fear of failure is the only reason preventing them from pursuing their dreams. That fear is almost always rooted in fear of rejection or judgment from those around them.  They always feel that if they fail the people around them will say “I told you so” therefore Instead, they look to others to believe in them.

They  are looking at people to get them some sense of “guarantee, it is sad because Dreams don’t work that way.

If you are one of these people it’s your chance today to take action. To chase your dreams, you must have a goal as this sets the tone for your entire journey. What is it that you want to achieve? How do you see yourself getting there? Will it make an impact in the world? Think really hard on these things and forget about the people around you. You have the abilities so stop doubting yourself.

The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

2.They fail once and never try again.


Never give up

This is the most depressing reason.  When an entrepreneur tells you that they  did not pursue their  dreams because they tried and it did not work. My response to them is always like this: If you stop walking, how do you expect to get to where you want to go?

and my  question  to them “how many times did you fail?”

Their  answer “once” sad!.

A wise man said:

Once isn’t a good judge of your potential. Twice isn’t either. 100 times is still not enough.

Thomas Edison failed approximately 10,000 times while he was working on the light bulb.

3. They are more interested in the result, not the process.

If you only focus on the end, you’ll never get there. Focusing on the result can be a fatal destruction. For example instead of focusing on building your business you are looking at how much profit it is making and you stop because it is not making enough profit.In any case, you should plan your business based on how much money you have immediate access to, rather than plan the business and then look for money.

If you focus on the process, you’ll find yourself waking up morning after morning realizing that you’ve come such a long way and you cannot stop now. You have to believe in yourself first, that one day you will achieve your goal. Pin your eyes on the goal not on the money.

4.They surround themselves with energy suckers

Energy suckers are people who are a negative influence to your dream. These people when you tell them your dream they will give you a list of negatives and justifications why your dream will never come true. What amaze me about these people is that they do not have dreams.

If you surround yourself with negative, unproductive people who don’t have dreams of their own, then guess what? they will focus on your dream and squash it as if they are paid to do so.

I like this quote

“When you feel like giving up think of all the people that will love to see you fail”

And this one

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. Ralph Waldo Emerson

5.They put fear first.


Nothing holds people back from chasing their dreams and achieving their success more than fear. Fear shatters dreams.

Fear itself is normal but fear can only win and get the best of you if you don’t take action and push forward

The fear of failure is the one fear that inhibits most from going after what they really want and breaking free from the chains of mediocrity. When you start to view failure as a step forward and put fear at last you are now a winner.
