Yes, Spring is here! Where are those GOALS and DREAMS you made for the New Year?! Hmmm, I imagine some of you are actually saying to yourselves, “Yes, where are they?” Let me refresh you with some your memories.
This is all to say that spring is here, and it is time to reassess where you are with the Goals, Dreams and Vision that you made a resolution for at the beginning of this year.
I can relate to most of the above because I have been there many times myself—Year after year, month after month, quarter after quarter, day after day, season after season, storm after storm, (Covid after Covid). I stand firm in challenging you so you do not go season after season doing the same things with no results. Right now, I am speaking only to those that have let April, 2021 arrive without significant change; without pursuit of that marvelous DREAM from that great New Year resolution. Please seriously consider this question, “What do you “think” you need to move forward?” Do you know? Do you truly care to know? Or, perhaps the biggest question—are you even ready to know?
I can only write from a level of prior experience. I was READY for many years but also not REALLY ready for many years. The usual obstacle and dream blockers were always MONEY and TIME. Money, because if you must work a job to pay bills (that has NOTHING to do with your Dream) then you are working for MONEY that you need which keeps you from THINKING about how to pursue your Dream.
You are engrossed for an 8 – 10 hour time frame each day that is devoted to something that only pays the bills and takes time away from you pursuing what you REALLY want to do. Did I just answer your own question or confirm what you already knew to be true?
How do you move past this obstacle (if that is the one)?. Well, there is no crystal ball as to how you do it but there is one thing that God gave you – the CHOICE to do something about it. So, let us refer back to A, B, C, D, E, and F (above) and turn it around:
A. STOP allowing life get in the way – reassess and list what those actual “life” issues are. Once you identify and WRITE them down it becomes REAL and easier to manage and overcome.
B. Actually START the process –again, WRITE down what you want to start. Your best reality is speaking to yourself through your own WRITING.
C. STOP procrastinating – JUST DO IT – make yourself do it even against your will!
D. CONTACT someone to help you! You have a person or persons in mind and you must reach out and ASK for help. (If you think it could be me, then contact me for a friendly chat)
E. KEEP praying but pay attention to the signs and signals your spirit is sending you - it may come in the form of a “THOUGHT” that will not go away, or you might see a person or hear something repeatedly – PAY ATTENTION and listen to God’s friendly whisper.
F. The BEST response to those that are on their way to a GRAND second quarter – just KEEP doing what you do, but now do it even bigger and better; Time to take it to the next level.
Spring is in the air and that is why they call it SPRING – it’s time to SPRING into ACTION towards your Goals, Dreams and Vision! ~ The Dreamsteerer
