Are you working toward your dream today?
Have you taken the time to clearly articulate your dream? Perhaps it’s to take your business to a new level of profitability and effectiveness this year. Maybe your dream involves launching a new business… getting that invention developed… launching a product or even writing a book.
Whatever your dream, one thing you can be sure of: there will be challenges and obstacles.
Sometimes January comes with its own unique hurdles. There can be a “let down” from the excitement of the Holidays. The New Year has a way of drawing attention to what we may not have accomplished last year.
What are you facing today? Regardless of how big the obstacle, how overwhelming the challenge, or how much the odds may be stacked against you, you need to hear this:
“All things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23 NKJV)
All Things Are Possible
Another translation (Young’s Literal Translation) renders this sentence like this:
“…all thing are possible to the one that is believing.”
What I love about this translation is the emphasis it places on the ongoing process of believing that is there in the original language. In other words, when Jesus spoke these words—to a man whose son had no hope of survival, no less!—he included the idea that believing in your dream isn’t something you do one time.
Your God-given dream is possible—but you’ve got to keep believing!
This week, a recurring theme on the webinars we’ve held with Tom Ziglar and Debra Thompson Roedl is this: you can get where you’re trying to go… you can achieve the goals and objectives you’ve set. But the battle for your dream is all inside you.
Having expertise, knowledge and know-how is important. Setting goals is vital. But as Tom Ziglar shared, you must feed your mind:
- the good,
- the clean,
- the pure,
- the powerful, and
- the positive
…to keep your focus, your attitude and even your believing where you need it to be!
I want to challenge you to feed yourself what you need to take in to keep believing, to stay positive, to stay focused. If you don’t make a choice to do this, the pressures of life will keep you on the ropes.
Negativity, pressure and challenges are all going to come your way. But you can accomplish your dream in 2013 if you’ll feed your mind good stuff and keep believing!
