There are always those moments where you feel inspired, when something or someone grabs you by the shoulders and pulls you forward. Maybe it's a movie, or a book, maybe it's a person in your life, but a sudden need to express yourself unfolds. You know, those Ah ha...moments, and they send you on a frenzy, and the next thing you know, you are off to change the world, or at least your little corner of it.
There is also those times when you catch yourself realizing you have always dreamed of this, to open your own unique business, or write a book, or maybe even buy a place where you could live off the land. Whatever it is, it's time to act. So, you set off, you know like the book from Dr. Suess, "Oh The Places You will Go", and at some point, something happens, and you lose steam...
Don't let this happen to you. Pick yourself up and dust yourself off, take a breath, and then move ahead. A lot of dreams take time to unfold, and you need to be patient, and you need to be ever vigilant. Take the bull by the horns, so to speak. It is amazing what can happen if you continue to move onward, you will find that you are moving upward!
There are questions you can ask yourself that may help you to continue, and to keep your sights open, such as, am I willing to be in this for the long haul, and if the answer is Yes, then focus and continue on the same pace, or maybe even rev it up a little. But, I believe the most important thing to keep you focused is support. There is nothing wrong with asking for it.
I am sure there are people in your life that are always willing to encourage you, to cheer you on. Just remember to appreciate those individuals and to thank them for their effort in helping you see the future. Time moves very rapidly, and before you know it, your dream has been fulfilled!
I have several 'cheerleaders' in my life and they keep me motivated. Thank God for them, because I probably would have given up on writing my book a long time ago. When I was younger, I never used to finish what I started and once I realized this about myself, I have worked hard to change that negative part. I am so ecstatic that my book is now closer than ever to becoming published, but I still have to push myself forward, since it is a series.
What are your dreams? What will it take for you to realize your goals and who are the people in your life that will help you move toward them?
I would love to here from you, drop me a comment. And, if it's support you need, let me know, I am more than willing to cheer you on, or help with ideas.
