It is tough enough to get the inspiration, drive and commitment up to follow a dream. Then you have to work on a plan on how to carry out the fulfilling of your dream. During this economic AND emotional recession it is especially tough to follow your dreams.

Some reasons why it may be more difficult now is moral in general is down. Your support system or the people who are usually a very good 'cheer leader' or 'fan' who under normal circumstances would back you up and pushes you forward may be experiencing their own hardships and don't have the energy to give you the support you need.
Another reason is the recession in general has taken an economic toll on everyone. If your dream may have needed to be financed, it may be very difficult if not impossible to finance your dream at the present time. Just keeping your head above water is what many of you are concerned with right now.
Between the lack of a sound, emotional support system through friends and family and lack of available funds may make you feel like wanting to give up ... but your inner voice says you can't. So how do you move on? How to you move forward toward your goal and dream?
When you can't lean on anyone stand up straight, stand up must be your own pillar of support right now. You must do whatever it takes to strengthen yourself so you can forge ahead and move toward your dreams coming true.
First: Believe in yourself! You must under any circumstance, completely believe in your heart of hearts you are able to make this dream come true! Come hell or high water, YOU can make it happen.
Second: Pay attention to other areas of your life being healthy so you have the strength and perseverance to weather this storm of instability and not having any outside help. Make sure you have physical health and mental health. Get your mind right! Mentally work on what needs to be done because this is THE most important strength you will need to get your dream going.
Third: Be crafty and out of the box to get your agenda accomplished. What will you need to get your dreams on the road? Perhaps you can barter with people you know to get marketing and exposure done. Even better, learn how to do it yourself! If you need to get some exposure and decide to write a press release but you are not the best writer, ask someone once you are done to polish it up for you. That way, you did not have someone do the work, just edit it, and distribute it yourself over the web!
Fourth (and most importantly): Don't give up. If you have always wanted to do what it is you are working not let a temporary set back, like lack of funds at the current time, get you off track. Onward and upward!
These are just a few ideas on how to work on your dreams when the world is at an emotional and financial low but when you are inspired and ready to take on the world and get your dream in motion and truly believe in yourself and what gift you have to offer the world, do it! If it is meant to happen it will, but, with your hard work and effort. This will separate you from the fakes out there who don't have the heart to follow their dreams. The stamina to keep with it. The determination to take on all of the battle they will be confronted with. Life will show you the way. It may take some time, or it may happen quick...But if you believe in yourself you can make your dreams come true!
