It’s Friday… let’s do some dreaming. What have you always wanted? You have probably spent countless hours on Pinterest wishing and dreaming, right? How often do you act on that dream?
Maybe your dream is to have a new house. Maybe it is to change jobs. Maybe it is to start your own business. How many times have you put YOUR DREAM on hold?
We always seem to find a way to do what is important to us yet that seldom seems to be our dream. How many things have you bought that are lying around the house that never get used? If we were to add the cost of all of those items together, I am sure their cost would be more than the investment it would take to get our dream off the ground.
I realized how true this is. Of course, there are times when getting serious about our priorities may take longer than we’d like. Are you like me and want instant gratification? But whether your priority is getting out of debt, making an important transition, or following your dream, it begins with a decision that your dream is a priority. And if it is a priority, you must be intentional about investing in what it takes to bring that dream to life.
I will be honest, I have been guilty of this same thing. WHY? First, my dreams are not going to come cheaply. I don’t necessarily mean in money but they will take a lot of time, effort and confidence. Quite frankly, they scare the heck out of me. I am moving forward with my knees shaking, not knowing what the future will hold. I do have faith that God will be with me whatever the answer.
I am investing the time, effort and some money for an AWESOME coach to help me reach my dream.
What is your dream right now?
Whatever your dream, I encourage you to commit to it on a whole new level. Know that it will take some sacrifice. Get creative about finding the time, the money or other resources you’ll need. Get serious about making it happen. Get brave about trusting that God is with you if you follow the desires of your heart. Don’t expect it to be easy. Just expect it to be worth it.
I challenge you to take some time to write down the excuse you have made for why you cannot have your dream? If you were to let go of that excuse, what would you have to do to make it happen? Are you serious enough about your dream to do that now?
Who is ready to reach for the stars? Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
