I am a Dreamer and I love to encourage as many people as possible to dream too because dream is cheap. Today is a very important and extremely busy day for me but my commitment to encourage you still stands come that what may, I will always drop you a line or two or more. This one will be more than a line or two and I hope you are ready to read so you can dream more……
It was John Maxwell that says and I quote that “dreams don’t work unless do you”. You see, many of us are dreamers, there is no doubt about that but so many of us dream and dream and dream on without taking any actions on those dreams. We are afraid of trying, the ones who are trying are afraid of failing and the ones who have failed before stay down with no intention of trying again.
Life is beautiful my friends and no matter how much we fail, we must be willing to try again. If we do not try, how do we know we would make it this time? And the magical thing about failing is that each time we try something and we fail at it, we would have learnt a lesson or two which would prevent us from making that mistake again. Do you agree?
So, my encouragement to you today is simple. I will tell you this that Faith without any works is dead. Having faith without working on what you are believing for is as good as a wasted faith. Don’t just have faith, do the work. While having a vision is good, you mustn’t let that vision linger for too long and while strategising is good, you mustn’t let your strategies linger for too long and while planning is good, you mustn’t let that planning go on for too long and while dreaming is good, you must wake up from that dream and get to work. Do the work!
See, I love to use myself as an example, when I first started making YouTube videos, I didn’t have any clue. I jumped right in and created and edited those videos the way I knew best. However, now, I know all that needs to be known in making good contents. See, I didn’t film any videos last week so, I went into my archive of very “bad videos” (relatively), downloaded the video, re-edited with more helpful materials and references and voila, I have a very very good video…If you watch the video, you would see that, I was a little shy and timid but now my work is not like that again…..SEE VIDEO BELOW:
Listen, you do not have to wait for everything to be perfect – perfect or enough money, the perfect time or the perfect resources, you must dream a little and then TAKE ACTION – work on those dreams without the not so “perfect everything”.
Here are 5 TIPS to Try to Take Action
1. Write Your Visions Down
Writing your visions down helps you get clarity. It is like a blueprint or road map to what you want to achieve or where you are going. When you have a vision, you can run with it. Ref: Hab. 2 vs 2.
2. Pray About Those Visions
Whether big or small, prayer works. Heavenly Father, I commit my vision into your hands, give me the strength and direction to achieve them. How does that sound? Easy right? Prayer works. Pray!
3. Take Action
Now you have a vision, start working. Don’t be praying alone. Do the work. Remember, dreams don’t work if you don’t work.
Trying to achieve goals can be daunting and or overwhelming especially if it is a new territory we are threading upon. If you are tired, don’t quit. Rest. Rest is good and I have also discovered that when we rest, we get fresh ideas.
5. Take One Step at a Time
Everything has it’s own process including success and growth. Don’t rush the process. Take on step at a time. It helps ease anxiety, anger, frustration and giving up.
6. Keep the Faith
Yes, faith without work doesn’t work BUT you must keep the faith. You must BELIEVE that this vision of yours is yours and come what may, you would make it work.
My friends, dreams don’t work except we ourselves do. So, please do the work, keep the faith and you will be surprised that eventually, you will BECOME
