For a long time, I stood over a giant gap in my life. I felt like I was on one side of a cliff and I needed to get across the other side.
When you get to a cliff, what do you do!? Do you turn around and walk away and find another way across? Do you try jumping across with the hope that you leap enough to get across safely? How about building something fancy like a bridge?
Dreams are a lot like that!
We have to create, develop and build things to get to our dream. We may even have to be a little creative in getting across. We have to create, develop and build to get across our dreams, our ideas, our thoughts and anything else that is sitting in our mind and heart.
Create a plan. Create a list of what you know you’re good at. List your strengths. List your weaknesses. List your talents and abilities.
Develop your strategy. Start looking into what kind of education you will need for what you want to do. Start considering how much money you will need (IF any) to make the dream happen! Actually figure out how long and how much you would have to commit to working on this dream of yours!
The building process can be difficult. People see what they have to do and suddenly the desire to be lazy sinks in. Let me encourage you…your laziness has to be fought with Faith! Others had to deal with the same struggle. Perhaps they fought just as hard if not harder because they didn’t want to stay in the same place for the rest of their life.
That though alone makes me work harder to pursue my dreams!
