Many people I meet share their dreams; but few are actually living them out! What is it that makes us afraid to pursue what we know we are meant to be and do? There are two deciding factors that come into play at this point! The biggest is the lack of belief in ourselves, and the other is surrounding ourselves with those who don’t believe in us either!
To address the first one it takes making a choice on keeping your mindset and attitude focused on being positive and living in your strengths and not your weaknesses. Sounds simple for me to state, but not so easy to do, is it? Some things to review quickly are: what do you read, how much time do you spend watching TV, how many times a day do you say “I can’t”, how healthy are you, and how many times a day do you laugh? Renewing our minds daily is very important and key to making sure we are valuing ourselves and following our dream. It also helps us to face and view the hard times, decisions and choices as learning experiences instead of giving in and quitting!
Handling the second factor will certainly help! Jim Rohn said it best: “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Take a look at who you spend the most time with. Do you have 5? Do you know who they are? Do they know it? Need to make some changes? Relationships are so valuable in how we live out our purpose and the pursuing of our dreams. Take a look at your five: are they uplifting, positive people? Are they living their dream? Do you need to make some changes?
In America we are so blessed and able to pursue our dreams. Are you ready to Go for it? What will your world look like a year from now? I believe in you! I know you can Go for Your Dream! The question is: do you?
