Stop Waiting- Identifying What’s Stopping You From Chasing Your Dreams

By- Tom Kubrak

Knock knock(the door of the 1 bedroom apartment opens)

“Hi! How can I help you today?”

“I just want ask you something if that’s okay.”

(laughing a little) “Well sir I don’t know who the hell you are but hey! Sure… ask away I guess.”

(a brief pause from the person who knocked on the door until finally blurting out)



“Dr. Life” talks about 5 strategies to just start the process of improving your health. How can you expect to help others and make your dreams happen if, health wise, you are just all out of whack. That should be your first priority if you’re trying to embark on a new career or starting a business. Check out Dr. Life’s post here…


Drugs and alcohol may come to mind first, since they are one of the most common talked about addictions, but this can be many other things. Including…

  1. Food
  2. TV
  3. Social Media
  4. Sex
  5. Caffeine
  6. Smoking
  7. Attention.

Elizabeth Hartney PhD. goes into depth, in her post, about some ways to help you quit your addiction. Find it in the link below…

Email me about an addiction you’re struggling with. If I can’t help maybe I know someone who can help you.


“When your addictive behavior becomes excessive to the point of creating conflict, it is out of balance with other parts of your life.” -Elizabeth Hartney

It’s about finding balance and doing things in Moderation. For example, I had an addiction to sugar, and still fight it, but now instead of what I used to do about a quart of ice cream a day(Daaaamn). I may have just a pint now(I still love Ice cream. And if they got Cookie Dough sign me up!)


Maybe it’s just the people you decide to spend your time with. Yes they’re probably good people, but are they supporting you when you say, “Hey I think I may want to do _____ instead of being a ________. What do you think?”

What do they say after you ask that?

If you have decided to take some people out of your life and now you’re ready to find the people that you believe, will not only be friends with you but support you and uplift you, check out Reeka Grover’s post on Life Hack.

“You must be willing to handle opportunities in order to let people in your lives. Show them who you are, and you will find good fits.” -Reeka Grover

Choose your friends wisely.

Find out what’s stopping you. There are so many reasons why you’re not truly going after your dreams. Maybe you need to just start with taking out one bad habit from your life and replacing it with a good one.

If you’re not all in though and you want to be, you have to ask yourself a question before you do…

“Am I willing to make some painful sacrifices to get where I truly want to go in life?”

“Nothings going to come to you by sitting around and waiting for it.” -Zoe Kazan
