My life is changing - no slowing down, just changing. The demands on my life are much different than they were. I was working with a life coach (she contacted me) and she helped me to refine my message. Rather, she forced me into that position of figuring it out – but that was what I needed to happen. As I learned more about exactly what I wanted to do – the demands and responsibilities in life kept rising. Now what? I got to a point where I decided to put myself on hold, again, and get everyone else taken care of. Then, another example of God giving me what I needed when I needed it emerged. I had an offer to take part in an informational call. I was going to skip it because my brain was already on information overload, so why bother with another “something” that I didn’t have time to do anyway. Still in the debate mode, I made the decision to call in even though the call had already started. I thank God I didn’t miss it.
Here’s my take on reaching your dreams.
· They are achievable if you’re willing to put in the work.
· Ask yourself some questions: “Why are you doing this? Is it just for the possible money? Is it so you can make a name for yourself and impress your friends? Is it because you genuinely care about people and want to help them? Is it all of the above and more?
· Begin. Be like Nike – Just Do It! Everything doesn’t have to be 100% at first. You’ll get there. The point is to start somewhere.
· Take baby steps. When you make mistakes, they will be much easier to correct. A $50 mistake is a lot easier to fix than a $5,000 mistake. Start small and build.
Whether it’s a service, a product, or an idea, if you truly believe in what you are doing – DO IT. Do it to the best of your ability. Trust what God has told you and follow the dream that burns within your soul.
