Some folks sit on their dreams their entire life without acting on them. There are several reasons this may be the case. Sometimes we think small instead of dreaming big. Why do we do this? We may feel we have pretty much made it as well as we are going. to. We don't have money, so we feel it's impossible. We don't really believe we deserve better things in life. Or, sometimes, we think, "luck," or knowing the right people can do more than God! So what can we do?
Enlist a, "Dream Team."
Everyone needs a dream team. A dream team is your inner circle of support. People who believe in you and encourage you. These are friends and family who know what your dreams are and they are your cheerleaders. When we have folks who check in with us and cheer us on, it's easier to believe in ourselves. Then, we too, need to be that person for others.
Do Something Each Day Towards Your Dream.
Whatever it is that you are striving for, take a small step each day in that direction. Make a list of everything that is needed. Do some research about your goals. Take an online college course. Find a mentor. Make a vision board. Cut out pictures and put them on the board. Put encouraging quotes and lists on it. Put a gold star on each milestone you complete.
