In yesterday’s blog, I asked the question, “how are you going to make your dreams come true?”
I gave you four out of seven things that you must do to make your dreams come true…
I. You Have to Have a Dream
II. You Must Have The Right Mentality.
III. You Must Have a Strong Work Ethic
IV. You Must Be Willing To Take a Risk
Here are the other three:
V. You Must Persevere No Matter the Obstacles
People and circumstances will do everything to try and bring you down. You must stay focused and stay on target. Booker T. Washington said, “I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which one has overcome while trying to succeed.”
Don’t make excuses! George Washington Carver said, “99% of failure comes from people who have the habit of making excuses.” Many things in this life are going to try and block your vision, your dreams, your goal…stay focused and stay on target. Your dream is out there! Don’t lose sight of it, even if you can’t see it!
VI. You Have to Have Passion
One person with passion is greater than 99 who only have an interest.
A few observations about passion: Genius is talent set on fire by passion. A person with passion never needs a “jump-start” – they are ready at any moment! Passionate people do not grow complacent. Passion does not attempt to get you to preserve, it sweeps you away.
After researching over 500 top performers from all areas of businesses, the arts and sports, Robert Krieger made this statement, “No two were alike, but the one quality they all had was passion. It was their drive, their enthusiasm, and their desire – that distinguished them.”
Michael Jordan said, “Heart is what separates the good from the great.” Passion is the difference between average and above average.
And last but, the most important…if you don’t have this one when it’s all said and done, it won’t matter that you had the other six.
VII. You Must Seek First the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33)
It is so important that you have a relationship with God. This is the key factor that has eternal consequences. It is vital that you serve Him and put Him first. Being a Christ follower makes all the difference in the world! It gives value and purpose to every second that you live and promise for eternal life.
If you are reading this and you have not accepted Christ, please feel free to contact me. I would love to share with you. Christ loves you and has a wonderful purpose and plan for your life. It’s time you discover what it is!
If you are a believer, live like it! Represent Christ with your life and serve Him. Victory is yours because of the finished work on the cross. Stop walking around in a defeated state, rise up, declare the power of Christ that is within you and go after your dreams as a child of God!
So what are your dreams? What are you doing to make them come true?
