What are your dreams? Do you even have any? Do you live life day to day waiting for the weekends to get here or for the day just to be over with? Are you caught up in the hustle and bustle of letting life live you?
I dare you friends, dream a dream! Put a goal in front of you. Dream a BIG dream. Let it scare you.
We need motivation and that does not come from our outside world, that comes from within us. It comes from wanting to achieve and succeed in our life. It comes from working towards something bigger than ourselves.
How do you get a dream?
Let me ask you, what would your perfect day look like?
Say, ten years from now, it’s your perfect day, what would that consist of? How would your day start? What would you be doing and who would be there? Go on, let loose for a minute and let your thoughts get away with you. What would it look like?
God did not create us to live a life of mediocrity. He sent His son Jesus so we may live life in abundance. I always say, life is an action word. We need to put action into our lives and live it! So come on now, what are your hopes, dreams and goals? And most importantly, what stops you from achieving them? I know, I know I’ve been there too, fear, financial issues, time, the “can’t be me” attitude, the busyness of life, and whatever else excuse we throw in there to stop our own selves from going after the dreams and goals we have in this life. Listen, God did not place those dreams and goals in us if He had no intention of helping us reach them.
So, how do you go about getting some dreams and goals if you don’t have any? I suggest writing down all the things you’d like to do in this life. yes write down even those crazy out of this world ideas. Go on write them down!! Now, divide them up and for each one put a little action plan in place. Ok for example, lets say someone wants to travel the world helping others less fortunate but they don’t have the money to get started. They can start off by writing their dream to travel to places where the need is great. An action plan for this would be this person can start off by helping those in their own community first. Most importantly, be sure to see and read your dreams and goals list everyday. You get what I mean? Let your dreams and goals be BIG and BOLD. Some may come to pass and others may not but that’s not the point. the point here is, having dreams and goals gives you passion for living and motivates you in life. It keeps your mind focused on reaching those dreams and goals and keeps you from wasting your precious time worrying what others are doing or not doing. It places your energy where it counts and where it matters.
I had a dream and a goal to write a book. Guess what? It came to pass :)
So go on now my friends, dream your dreams and live life with passion. We get one chance at it, make it count!
And for all you parents out there, would this not be a great example for our kids? Do we not teach them to go for it in life? Lets do the same. We were created for great things, own it and live it!
God bless <3
