Take a class, course or read a book that's related to what you want to do. Just do something that re-inspires you and reminds you why you want it.

It' always good to talk to people that share the same dream or goal as you. You'll both be able to support and encourage each other. There are plenty of online community forums that you can be apart of. Join them and talk out any worries you might have. Also, it can be very refreshing to hear someone else's point of view.
Identify Any Obstacles
Write down any obstacles that might get in the way of you achieving your dreams. For example, not making enough money to live on, what your friends might think if things don't work out or your own fear of not being good enough. Whatever the obstacle is, write it down and ask yourself honestly, what is more important...what your peers think or achieving your dreams? Which one makes me more happy, doing what I love most or constantly worrying about money and self-doubt?
After you've written down your obstacles, keep it in a safe place and come back to it when you feel unsure.
Set Realistic Goals
Goals are great for keeping you busy and will keep you focused on your dreams. Set yourself some short-term & long-term goals, so you always have something to work towards.
With patience, perseverance and an enormous amount of dedication, you will achieve your dreams. You will hit many hurdles, feel vulnerable and scared but when your hard work has paid off, you will feel stronger, more empowered and most of all, happy.
