Wear Your Dream

October 20, 2014 4 Comments

“Dare to Dream: Have the desire to do something bigger than yourself. Prepare the dream: Do your homework; be ready when the opportunity comes. Wear the dream: Do it. Share the dream: Make others a part of the dream, and it will become even greater than you had hoped.” – Florence Littauer

Wear Your Dream

 Life is filled with joy and happiness but it is also filled with struggle and pain. The fact is life takes hard work and the struggle can be like a roaring avalanche that overcomes and buries our dreams. It is easy to fall into the trap of living from one crisis to the next. Our dreams are forgotten and we focus only on survival for the day. Is this how life should be?

 Dare to dream

 Give yourself permission to dream. No you are not being selfish. Desire to do something great in life; we all want to be a hero. Don’t think it silly or trite but dream big. The only thing it costs you to dream is the guts to see beyond your current circumstances.

 Prepare the dream

Don’t make excuses. Don’t wait for the money or the time. Pick one thing today that will be that one small step to bring you closer to living out your dream. Buy a book, do a google search or call an expert. Set up a time to meet with them and buy them a cup of coffee. Do not stress over what you don’t have but focus on what you have now. Most of all make sure you pray about it each and every day. Today is the day. Embrace the moment and act TODAY!

 Wear the Dream

Eat it, sleep it, breathe it. Let it define who you are. Let it shape your character, your values and your core principles.

 Share the dream

This could very well be the hardest part. Choose one person today to share your dream with. What are you chicken? It is time to step out of the boat and walk on the water; take a chance. Yes they may laugh at you, mock you and they might even doubt you and call you crazy. You will always have critics. Drive this into your mind; no one will ever be as passionate about your dream as you are. Take a chance today and share your dream. Talk it up today and every day. You never know, they just might get on board and help you get there and that is worth the risk.

 Dreams are not meant to always be dreams. They are meant to become reality. Never forget that God has created you for something greater. Don’t let your current circumstances blind you from that fact. Learn to see past them and keep your dreams in sight. Everyday take that one small step and with perseverance your dream will begin to take shape.

 So what one step will you take today to make the move toward your dream? Feel free to share your dream and tell me who you told about it in the comments below.
