There was a dream that was planted inside of you. With this dream, you have to take action. This is where the goal setting comes in. Many times when we work towards our dreams and goals there will be challenges, disappointments, amazing wins, growth, and completion. All of this is part of the journey. It is important to stay present and pay attention during each step. There are some of us who are so set on the end result that we miss the moments along the way. Understand everything that happens is aligned to a greater purpose. This dream was planted in you for a reason. It is yours because it was given to you from God, he keeps his promises. We have to be conditioned and prepared to receive them. The only thing that is stopping you is yourself. Follow your dreams, take your time, and let your light shine.
I’ve shared some encouragement as you continue to work towards your dreams. If you haven’t started yet take baby steps and begin. I hope these words will encourage you to get started.
1. Know it is yours – Claim it and work hard. You have all the power to make those dreams come true. Listen to that inner voice from the divine source that is guiding you along. Regardless of how difficult it may seem, the voice is your intuition giving you the faith to keep moving. “Live by faith not by sight.”
2. Take care of yourself – As we start a new task it is important to take care of yourself. Take time out to refresh and do things that bring YOU joy. Move your body and eat healthy too. As you move along your purposeful journey it will get hard. You will question if you are doing the right thing, people will release themselves from your life, things might get downright chaotic. The beauty of it all, you are building strength and character. A question I ask myself is “what is the lesson in this and how can I see this differently.” Focus on the end result and big picture while staying present.
3. Celebrate – Be proud and celebrate your accomplishments no matter how small you think it is. Understand it takes a lot of courage to go for our dreams. Every step you take is closer to what you are called to do, and that is following direction from the divine to guide you toward your best life.
4. Reflect – Look back long enough to see how far you’ve come. There is growth in every experience and you did it. You can share your courageous story to others to help them follow their dreams too.
