Happiness Circle #05: Why do we hesitate to kickstart our dream projects?


Why do we NOT get started on our dream projects?

We all have ideas for passion projects or even a startup running through our heads. But we find that we don't execute on them. We tell ourselves that the idea is not good enough, we are not ready yet, we need more planning, we need to look a certain way, we need to feel a certain way, or that we are simply far too busy to get started on it right now.

Does any of that sound familiar to you?

In the upcoming session of Happiness Circle, we want to explore the reasons we give ourselves for not getting started on our dream projects. More importantly, we hope to discover why we give ourselves these excuses and drill down to the core fears that we have that holds us back from pursuing our dreams.

"Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear and how to be free from it" ~ Veronica Roth

What is Happiness Circle?

Happiness Circle was borne out of the experiences that the founders went through in their own lives. After experiencing burnout from their work life, they found that by putting a pause on life - actively pursuing reflection times, scaling back on technology use, stepping away from the rat race, running towards their problems instead of away from them - they emerged with a better understanding of themselves.

At Happiness Circle sessions, we put a conscious pause on the rat race that we run on a day-to-day basis and spend two hours discussing and contemplating issues in our lives. It is a safe space for people who want to embrace curiosity, are willing to stretch, and want to be part of a community that works towards a life of purpose, who are ready to take action. We meet on the first Friday of every month.
