While organizing the files on my system, I happened upon a document I called ‘Dreams – What I’m believing for’. I opened it to see what I had written. The column headings were:
- What – the item/my desire
- The Promise – scriptures to encourage me on the subject
- Description/details – the finer details of what I wanted
- Potential Challenges – what I thought could be show stoppers / obstacles
- Strategy for achievement – including the suggestions for how to address the potential challenges
- Target date
- Date accomplished
I totally forgot I had prepared this document though I had the key points outlined in my journal so I could pay attention to them. I read through and realized that from the time I created this document in 2014 till now, eight of the ten items have been completed – some before the target date, some shortly after; but they’re done. 80% success rate. Great!
Of course you know what I considered next – why don’t I make a fresh list and dare to dream bigger than I did the last time?
Well, that’s exactly what I’m doing and I invite you to join me in making your own document.
A toast to your success and mine.
Hey, thanks for sharing! I really love how you go into detail about all the things involved with reaching you dreams. All the best to you!
Girlfriend, talk about a wake up call! Writing stuff down sure is important but how often I forget to do it or take it for granted. We just often have plans and dreams floating around in our heads, nudging at our hearts and we say, “I know I want to do xyz …” but if we’d just set goals and plan towards accomplishing them w’d go from ” want to do” to ” have done.” So so glad I read this post today. I’m writing my own list now.
Fantastic! Thanks for sharing.
P.S Have I said thank you for the wedding gift? Thanks a million times over.
Great word! Thanks for the insight, your words are always encouraging. God bless you Anie
