Pick your obstacles.

People are attracted to the feeling of overcoming obstacles, but would rather live vicariously through the stories of other people who are actually going through it.

You want to start a business, but you read books about starting businesses.

You want to run a marathon, but you read articles about how to run marathons.

Maybe you want to be a film director, but you watch videos on YouTube.

Every time you choose to live vicariously through others, you subconsciously move your dream farther from your reality. You start thinking your dream is for them, not for you. You waste another day which you should have spent closing the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

Pick your obstacles. Stop consuming and take action. I promise the feeling you will get from doing it yourself feels better than watching someone else live your dream.
