Feel frustrated about your dreams?

These tips can help!

Your thoughts (90)

Hey girl! Think about this – When you plant a seed in the ground it doesn’t grow overnight. Depending on what you’ve planted it can take weeks, months or even years before you see anything! And even when you’ve planted something you can’t just put it in the ground and walk away. You have to put in the work, watering the seeds to make sure the soil has enough nutrients for it to grow.

Doesn’t this sound similar to our dreams? Your dreams are like seeds, but instead of planting them in the ground they are planted within you. We all have seeds of greatness within us. No matter who you are or where you’ve come from there is greatness within you.

Now you might be thinking – I have loads of dreams but when will they ever come true?

Just like the seeds in the ground, there’s a waiting period between when you decide to follow your dreams and when you see some progress. That period of waiting can be tricky, but here are some steps to help you navigate it.

1. Embrace the journey

Remember that life is a long journey not a short race. Greatness isn’t made overnight and neither are your dreams. Good things take time, so be patient with your growth. Slow progress IS STILL progress.

2. Enjoy the journey

When you spend time thinking of all the amazing things you want to achieve in the future, everyday life can seem pretty boring. The key to happiness is to spend your days doing what you love. Make sure you schedule in fun activities like hanging out with friends or trying new hobbies.

3. Reflect during the journey

As your seed is growing it will go through many seasons. There will be sunshine but there’ll also be rainy days. There’ll be good days, and there’ll be bad days when it feels like you’re not making progress but that doesn’t mean you should stop dreaming. Taking a moment to pause and reflect can remind you of how far you’ve come and gives you the motivation you need to keep going.

Hi springster, I would rather stay anonymous please. Well, I resently finished my matric and I passed with a BD plus I optained a distinction for one of my languages. I applied to a university when I was in grade 11 already and they provisionally selected but unfortunately due to space I couldn't be admitted. I feel to worthless. I feel like my results isn't good enough but I don't wanna go rewrite I have strong mixed emotions about rewriting not that it's wrong, it's just me.Anyway I am currently taking my gap year and I feel some what depressed about it. I cry sometimes for no reason. I just get angry at those around me. I don't associate myself with people anymore. And I feel it's affecting my well being too. Please advise me on how to stay productive during my gap year.

Hey Mama Juice, thank you for your comment. It's okay to feel frustrated sometimes but not all is lost. Maybe take sometime to revisit your dreams and look at the steps you are taking to achieve them. If you are still feeling lost then you can talk to your school counsellor or a trusted adult to give you some advice on this. All the best Springster. Please let us know how it goes.

Hello Bohle, We can imagine how frustrated you must be while there might be a lot of school work that you need study. We advice you to set up a timetable whereby you can decide on which subject you want to focus on every day and the hours you will study them for. Here is an article that might help as well http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-life/beat-the-stress/ We hope this helps and please come back and tell us if it is working. Wishing you luck Sprigster and we wish you luck. We believe in you.

Dear sister I think what you have to do is to go back to school because you still have chance . if you think going back to high school it going to be a problem just go to the nearest college and apply metric rewrite . and for now try to make your self useful by studying some of the books u come across that will help sharpening your brain n preparing you for next year .

There's nothing wrong with failing its actually part of life I failed in term 1&2 but if you believe in yourself you will pass otherwise if you keep on saying that you will really fail

Don't worry,the same thing happened with me in term one and I just pulled up my socks.I then passed term 2,3 and 4,so you just need to pull up yr socks and you'll pass.♥️😀

Hey Springster, you'd need to study accounting in university or college. The amount of time it will take will depend on what level you want to reach. Please look up details on university/college websites to get more information. You can also speak to your LO teacher, he/she is qualified to guide you on such matters. Do let us know how everything works out.

Hey Athisijovu, unfortunately not. Most colleges and universities require that you complete matric starting there. We think you should look at the article in the link below.

Yes

You can go and register at college using your grade 10 or 11 results and you can also apply for NSFAS.

Be an actuary because you say your good at the things involved in being an actuary. We all say we want to be:when we are growing up. It helps to do the things we good at because the want to be situation tends to get harder on the way.

Latest Reply

Hey Springster Thank you for reaching out. Finding your path is not easy and there is no straight line for anyone. These kinds of decisions take time for you to think about. When it comes to your university courses, maybe you should think about speaking to a university counsellor or somebody from your faculty in order to speak about the courses you are doing and whether they fit into your life goals. This is normal, you are not failing at life. Don't beat yourself up about it. Taking a gap year can be beneficial when it comes to trying to find out what you want to do with the rest of your life. But, if that is not what you want to do then use your university resources and speak to someone who can help you.

Hi Tsaki, we understand how frustrated you must be feeling, but we suggest you try not to panic. Whatever subject you have chosen, you are still in grade 10 and there's still time to change it the next year (or even during the year) if you feel like your career path is changing or if you don't enjoy the subject. We suggest you doing something you love and enjoy the most!

Hey guys few weeks back , at school they had to choose people who have to go to Extra Classes in Claredon but I was not chosen my best friend was chosen .

Hi Asa-cooper, we think the word you're looking for is thrush or yeast infection. There are several home remedies you can use for thrush which include sitting for 10-15 minutes in a bath that is mixed with apple cider vinegar, or a bath with some baking soda in. Otherwise you can go to your nearest pharmacy and ask for thrush medication. The only thing you have to make sure of before you start doing any of this is knowing for sure that you have thrush. You can visit your nearest clinic or doctor to go for a check-up. However, if you are 100% sure then you can use the home remedies or visit your pharmacy for meds.
