Chasing Dreams : Plan B

Part 1 : Chasing Dreams : Part 1 

You know what you want to do and even though people tell you that you’re in way over your head, you don’t care. This is it. You understand everything you want to be and you’re so happy that you know how you want to spend the rest of your life. The nagging suspicion of failure no longer hovers in the back of your mind. This is all you have ever wanted and you are willing to do whatever it takes to get to the finish line.

As amazing as that mentality is, life doesn’t always go according to plan. We would like to believe that we can manipulate and control our fates in the most extreme ways. The truth of the matter is that we can’t and that is when plan B comes into action. You can chase your dreams and do everything you think will help you advance but at the same time you must remember: things can fall apart.

Plan B doesn’t have to be a degree or even another career route. Plan B is how you pick yourself up after you’ve fallen. Its the plan you implement when you have no other options. Well thought out and reasonable plans will help you recover from any mishap. When working on the original blueprint of how you want life to play out, take the time to think what if. You have gotten this far and you know what you want. You know what route you want to take. There is nothing worse than falling flat on your face and not having a way to pick yourself up. Scrambling to figure out the next move.

Consider Plan B, incorporate it into you original plan, it’s just another step and if it ever comes to the point to where you need it, you’ll be grateful you did.
