I remember how relieved I was when this year rolled in. I felt like the past year was a cage that I got out of just before it closed in on me. The new year held such hope and promise with new dreams and ambitions brewing in my mind. It’s interesting how time goes by and we find some of those dreams slipping from our grasp into the realms of improbability.
Just in case you find yourself worrying about the future and fearful that those goals you set at the beginning of the year will not be achieved… Yes, if it looks like things are just not falling in place to enable you get to your desired destination, know this: This is not the time to throw in the towel or give up on your dreams. Rather, it’s time to press in again and push to have your desires fulfilled.
Yes. Your desires can be fulfilled. All things are possible to him who believes. While you wait on the forces of the universe to smile on you, you have the chance to do your part. Find out about that future – investigate, consider, ask questions, pray, plan, strategize, and network. Do all you can to ensure you are prepared for the opportunities that will come your way.
Think Possibilities. Write the plan and lay it all out in your journal. It may seem beyond your current means but go ahead and get ready. Start small if capital is hard to come by, or run with a segment of the plan in the interim and plug in the other aspects when the sponsors/investors show up. You could modularize your dreams and accomplish them in phases. Better to accomplish small milestones and have some successes to share than to sit around waiting for one big bang.
Fear will continue to thrive when we leave those questions unanswered. Begin today to address those unknowns by arming yourself with sound knowledge that will enable you make the right decisions and eliminate fear. One step at a time; one day at a time. You’ll get there. Just don’t give up. There’s hope.
