Dream It, Believe It, Do It

What is it you want that adds value to the world around you?

Too often we limit ourselves the very moment we conceive what it is we want. The protective, risk-averse “no-no”, “don’t” and “can’t” conditioning of our youth is still at work in our lives and we seldom notice. This negative conditioning too often causes us to fail before we even begin.

Train yourself to think first:
  • “What do I want that adds value to the world around me?”

Make it specific; get a clear picture of what success looks like and how you will know it. Then ask,

  • “What are the rewards if I succeed?
  • What are the consequences if I fail or fall short of my dream?”

Finally, allow yourself to consider ALL potential obstacles. (only AFTER conceiving the goal and your motivation in the form of rewards for success and the consequences of failure) Ask:

  • “What might keep me from achieving this goal?”

Write down anything – everything – that comes to mind, no matter how small or how formidable the roadblock may at first seem. Then, and only then, develop your action plan.

Decisive action to overcome your obstacles
will be decisive action toward achieving your dream.

Albert Einstein said, “I want to know God’s thoughts; all the rest are details.” Consider the source of our dreams. Be true to the Holy Dream Creator by acknowledging your dreams, and the dreams of others. God takes care of the big stuff. It’s up to us to handle the details.

Every Life Has a Reason at the Intersection of Purpose & Now.
