Letting Go of Dreams

  • Our culture lionises grit and perseverance, but the ability to be adaptable and flexible, and pivot to new opportunities, is just as important.
  • The common phenomenon of ‘goal shielding’ puts us at risk of persevering for too long with unobtainable dreams, though there is no surefire way to make the right decision on this.
  • To assuage the pain of letting go of a dream, be realistic about what you’re giving up – even if you succeeded, it was unlikely to be the romanticised version you pictured.
  • To let go of a dream can be difficult and unsettling, but there will be other ways to channel or redirect your passion.
  • Turn this moment to your advantage by exploring new opportunities and building your adaptability for the future. New dreams await.
