Why Does Living Your Dreams Seem Hard For Most People?
Do most people seem to live their dreams?
Living your dream life seems hard for most people. Following your dreams feels like an impossible path for most human beings.
Change occurs on a level of energy, feelings, or emotion. This is tough because people tend to resist facing fear or feeling uncomfortable. Human beings need to observe, feel, and change their predominant vibe to change their lives. Observing, feeling changing your predominant vibe feels quite uncomfortable, scary, or flat out overwhelming sometimes.
Most people seem programmed to survive from energies of fear versus thriving from energies of love so loving, thriving choices feel confusing, scary, or outright alien to a dream-chaser. I felt completely lost as a first-time entrepreneur over a decade ago because everyone around me – and my old fear-scarcity condition – influenced me to do scared, allegedly safe, comfortable, and limiting things while free, energized, successful entrepreneurs, told me to do the exact opposite things.
Rather than feel uncomfortable, most people prefer not to chase their dreams. But the select few who follow their dreams quickly learn how facing, feeling, and releasing limiting beliefs dripping with deep fears feels….” hard”…for lack of a better term. Feeling fear feels SO hard for folks because feeling fear feels incredibly unfamiliar for people who engineer their lives to sit firmly ensconced inside of their comfort zones.
The hard aspect of following my dreams was unearthing, feeling, and releasing deep fears fueling my predominant vibe. This process has occurred progressively over the past 10-12 years of my life in particular. The payoff has been incredibly fun, freeing, and liberating; I have circled the globe as a pro blogger over the past decade. But unearthing, identifying, feeling, and releasing my fears felt overwhelming, confusing, and super frustrating sometimes.
I intended to build a freeing online business a decade ago but my predominant intent felt steeped in fear, lack, limitation, and poverty during those days. I originally dreamed of owning mansions but my dominant fear-energy influenced me to do stuff like trying to make money online filling out $5 surveys. Logically, I thought I wanted to own mansions. Emotionally-energetically, I felt absolutely terrified to lose all of my money. What won? My dominant energy-emotions, of course.
What a hard lesson to learn: thinking means little to nothing in and of itself but energy-feelings mean EVERYTHING because how you vibe is how you perceive life. People try to work hard, slaving, straining, and striving, but eventually learn that you cannot outfox or outwork your energy.
How you vibe dictates how you:
I progressively learned to unearth, feel, and release deeper and deeper fears buried in my being to leave my dominant poverty consciousness in the rearview mirror. Thinking, feeling, and acting abundantly allowed me to move toward my dreams with increasing ease.
Living your dreams
But living your dreams is not a robotic, logical journey taken by cyborg-like robots. Following your dreams involves a slow, steady, progressive but sometimes scary as heck unfolding of following your fun right into your deepest fears. Most humans would rather die than face their deepest fears. Simply observe how most people go from cradle to grave without living their wildest dreams, being anchored down by their deepest fears, mired in survival mode for most of their human experience.
But harder gets easier if you see your dream-journey through. Fears terrifying you years ago completely dissolve into peace of mind through aspects of your life. Fears you progressively face become less intense because you develop the skill of being comfortable with being uncomfortable. Success flows to you with greater ease as your clarity and skills increase. However, reaching this tipping point from “harder” to “easier” requires thousands of hours of commitment to following your dreams.
Follow your dreams because doing so is worth the discomfort. Freedom is worth facing fear. Liberation is worth embracing pain.
If you plan to be around you may as well embrace some tough moments to be free over the long haul.

Thank you much for this post. Chasing my dreams and following my passions has been one of the scariest things ever but I know that I can achieve any thing I set my mind on so I keep striving everyday to make my dreams a reality.
Hey Ryan and Erika,
What a great post!
Indeed, it is the comfort zone, people don’t dare to step out of it. Once you do step out, you will get used to do it over and over.
Thanks for nice post!
Keep it up!

I’ve certainly tried to live my dreams more recently and it’s hard to think that things can work out how you plan, if you have faith in yourself. It can be really scary too!

it is good to go for your dream, but usually, nothing goes as planned. This is why it is good to be flexible, watch out for possibilities, and follow your heart.
Yes, it can be scary, but if you have faith, you can overcome it. “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” -Marie Curie
