Sometimes you can get tired of not living your life to it's full potential. That's why I decided to move forward and not really think about the what if's. What if I'm not good enough...what if the thing I'm doing doesn't work...what if my idea never goes anywhere. We can drive ourselves crazy with too much thinking. Rather than focusing on all the negative what if's, just get out there and do you. Do you to your full potential. I recently listened to a young lady talk about how awesome she was. I think we should all wake up in the morning that way, telling ourselves that we are awesome. You are awesome no matter how the day goes, or things in your life. Whether things go down hill or up hill, you are awesome because God made you awesome and that will never change. He made you "very good (Gen. 1:31)." You can look in the mirror and tell yourself, "I'm good."
When I wrote my book, "The Dream Launcher's Devotional," in one of the chapters I talk about how it's better to have gone after your dream rather than looking back with regret. The world is full of people looking back at their lives with regret. Sure, there are things in our lives that we could have done differently but we can only live for today. At best, you owe it to yourself to at least try to go after those ideas that have been sitting on your shelf or locked up inside you. No one can accomplish your dream for you. The worst that can happen is failure. Ok, so failure doesn't sound that great. Well, place it in your mind that "failure is not an option." When at first you don't succeed... cry, yell, watch tv, eat ice cream, work it off at the gym, get back up and push forward. Change what didn't work. Hold on to what did work. And Ask God for direction.
I would like for each of you to succeed at your dream even if it's a small dream. Even if it's as simple as having a goal to make your bed every morning, to eat breakfast, or to read a book. Even if it's as great as dropping a music album, starting a company, or finishing college. You might as well go for it. Maybe you need a network of people that are in your corner who will support your vision or maybe you need direction for how to begin. My hope is that through this site people will begin to engage with one another, leave comments and support one another in the process of moving towards our dreams. It's good to have other people on the Island with you even if it's Wilson (you'll get this if you've watched the movie "Cast Away," starring Tom Hanks). Community keeps you going. When we have support we can lift one another up.
So, leave a comment. Share a story. Encourage someone to never give up. Share a Quote that you find helpful. OR, answer one of these questions in comments section as it applies to you:
Help us to know how we can support you and always remember to go for your DREAM.
