Big Things Happen to Those Who Dream…
Big things happen to those who dream……. and act on it! Those who live on purpose see so many things happen versus those who only entertain wishful thinking. One who participates in “wishful thinking” often experience no progress, not because what they are thinking may be wrong or impossible or even unimaginable but because some have never truly acted upon their biggest dreams and visions. So therefore, a lot of times, “time” has only been wasted on wishful thinking.
However, those who dream and catch a hold of the vision that God has given them are ultimately elevated to higher heights in life and are more fulfilled and satisfied. Did you know that dreams make your life worth living? According to financial expert Catherine Alford, there are at least 11 reasons why it is important to pursue your dreams: the first one being…” It makes life worth living”. Being a person, who has always had dreams and aspirations even as a small child, I suffered so much as an adult (mentally and spiritually) because I always felt as if I wasn’t living my best life... by not being authentically me. Whether it be from having children early or by being in relationships that took up too much of my time (but did not add to my value) or working a job in a field that I hated but needed because of my financial obligations. So, I ended up accepting less than what I deserved. It wasn’t until I made a conscious decision to “live on purpose” that my life was changed. I no longer wanted to be a victim of my own mediocre decisions, I wanted all that God had and purposed for me and I knew that I could no longer remain in my “then” current situation. I needed to live my dreams and to do that, I had to make some sacrifices.
Making sacrifices is no easy feat but they are so important. In order to achieve great success, I had to get rid of certain relationships, gracefully bow out of certain jobs and begin to turn my life around by pursuing my dreams. I began to live by the scripture: Habakkuk 2:2 which states….” write the vision and make it plain”. I started writing down my dreams and aspirations one by one and... one by one, I picked up my faith and started to pursue. I researched the career field I wanted to be in, created innovative ways to establish a budget to get the job done, made connections with the right people and continued to pray fervently. I kept my eyes before the Lord to ensure that he would direct my paths. I so desperately wanted my dream to come true but more importantly, I wanted them the right way.
There will be more in-depth details about my personal journey in my book. But until then, I want you to be inspired to never be afraid to dream. Dream your biggest dream and act on it now!
