Many people will make various excuses for why they cannot and why they will not be able to reach their dream. With 2014 very close, you are probably thinking about what you want to accomplish in 2014 and what your goals are for the future.
In October, I definitely reached my dream. Full-time freelancing was achieved in October of 2013 for me, and I feel in control of my life by having my own business and being able to do what I want to do.
When I do tell people about what I do, I often get a lot of “You are lucky,” “I never will be able to do what I want,” “That's not possible” and so on.
That always makes me sad to hear. If you want something, then you most likely will have to work hard at it. A goal wouldn't be a goal if it only took one second to achieve.
Here are some excuses as well as an action plan to make your dream more attainable.
