Have you thought about it lately? Maybe you have. I wish we were sitting by each other and we were able to get down to the needy gritty of what has been holding you back from living the life of you dreams.
Many times, we find ourselves wanting to move towards the future. We begin to envision certain dream or goal. We spend time seeing it in our heads, we begin to create a plan, but then we are woken up by reality.
We ask ourselves, how could I save that much money to take that trip? how could I possibly meet the man of my dreams in the next few months? How could I start and grow my business fast enough to quit my job in the next 90 days?
We begin to see what could be, but we are held back by what is.
In the midst of all the wondering, "reality" begins to fill our heads and fear begins to fill our hearts. I live paycheck to paycheck. Who am I kidding when I think that I could I possibly save enough money to leave my 9-5 in 90 days?
I'm too fat and not beautiful enough. Who am I kidding when I think I could meet my guy within the next few months?
I'm broke and in debt. How could I possibly afford that vacation.
What we fail to realize is that if we invested ourselves, our times and our thoughts into what could be, into that dream, it's very possible we could accomplish it or put a great dent on it.
Many of us are driven by our surroundings. We believe what the news say, what the negative and the critics around us say, but we don't pay enough attention or believe the little voice inside us that say, trust and believe God.
I want to challenge you with a thought today. Your dream may not make sense to anyone else. It may look like it's too far for you to reach, but holding on to your fear and "your reality" is not getting your to where you want. So, it's time you let go of what's holding you back and you begin to take the steps to move forward.
I know, that sounds too simple. The reality is, if you are ready to move forward, that is all you need.
Research and evidence show that we are the main obstacle. We are the main critic, the main ones discouraging ourselves from our own dream!
If this is for you. And you know it's for you because hope is growing in your chest as you read these words. Then it's time! It's time you stop making excuses. It's time you stop allowing all the madness, the messiness, the lack of planning from holding you, hostage. You hate the life you are living, yet you have allowed yourself to make excuses for far too long.
Today is the day. Just let go and ask God to help you gain the clarity you need to create the plan to live your dreams.
Yup, that simple.
The only other option is to go back to live the same cycle over and over again. Either one, it's your decision.
