Get active in your vision for in life!
1. FIRST YOU NEED TO IDENTIFY YOUR GOAL
Every dream is as unique as the dreamer. Exceptional to you, a gift has been placed inside. Identify what dream you want to reach and write it down. It can be as small as spending more time with your kids, learning to cook, or as big as a career change. Once you identify this dream there are a few more steps to take. As the quote says above by Harriet Tubman, “Every GREAT dream begins with a DREAMER. Always remember, YOU have within YOU the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” God has placed inside of you strength, patience and the passion to pursue those things in which you desire
2. DO NOT LET FEAR STOP YOU FROM PROGRESSING
Life’s fear can hinder us from progressing forward. What fears are holding you back? First identify these fears in order to face them. If you are having trouble pinpointing why you are fearful, you can journal your thoughts and then look them over. If you are believing negatively about yourself, just know that inside of you is something unique to anyone else.
Before I started this website I let fear of “everyone else is already doing it,” stop me from even starting. I figured there were a million other people already saying what I had to say, but then I realized that maybe the way that I say something might change one persons life, and to me that made it worth it to at least try. Know that your dream matters and your goals are important.
Maybe fear stops you from even taking one step towards trying. When you identify and face the fear it will lose it’s power over you. In 1 John 4:18 it says, “but perfect love casteth out fear.” Begin to meditate on who you really are according to the Word. ” For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind,” 2 Timothy 1:7. Fear loves to try to steal our identity, so when this happens just remind fear of who you really are!
3. SHARE YOUR DREAM WITH SOMEONE
Find a friend that will respect what you have to say, will encourage you and tell them the dream that you are working towards. You may hesitate in talking with your friend, but there is power when you vocalize this goal that you are working towards.
4. READ BOOKS
Find a few inspirational books to read, if you don’t have the time to read check out the audible version of the book. I used to think it was too simple when people said the way that you become successful is through reading books, but doing this has literally changed my life. Books can encourage you and help you to change your mindset, or help you see your life through a different perspective. I love hearing stories of people who have overcome so much in their lives, it encourages me to keep going and to leave behind a legacy for others. Books have within them the power to change your life.
5. TAKE ACTION ON THE GIFT THAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN
Now that you have written down the vision for change you need to make a plan of action. Write down something you can do TODAY to begin, make sure these steps are realistic. If you desire to paint, this action could be going on Pinterest to find a project to make, or going to the art store to buy a canvas and some paints. Maybe your goal is to change your career, write down steps you would need to take like finding a new source of income.
