Do your dreams seem worthwhile? If they seem worthwhile are they doable? Have you thought that even though you have worked out that your dreams are worthwhile the doable part has “you” getting in the way. That it seems a struggle. Do you have a time frame? Or are they something that you think may be possible but you haven’t spent time thinking about them since life does seem to get in the way somewhat.
We can have dreams but not the how-to or the direction.
We can have dreams for our relationships, our careers or business, and our personal and physical health. But we have to remember sometimes we are so busy doing life – we don’t look at the how-to of our dreams. How to set them in motion, how to stay motivated and inspired, how to take the next step.
Also, our days are unpredictable and we don’t know what a new day will bring forth. Not having a sense of direction can cause you to stagnate for years. And then consider—-
The road to your dreams isn’t always easy to navigate, sometimes dotted with mountains to climb, obstacles to overcome—and hard, mind-numbing times that will make you feel like quitting. Just remember this if you get lost along the way: Anything worth having doesn’t come easy. So don’t turn back around. Don’t give up. Motivational Quotes
Mountains? Yes, and they are where you push hard to overcome.
Obstacles? Yes, and they can cause you to do a re-think to make sure you are on the right path.
Hard, mind-numbing times? Yes – those times when you push and push and don’t seem to be getting any further fast.
Called for: A mentor or coach
- Do you have a mentor – who will tell you the good, the bad and the ugly of where you are at?
- Who fits in with your values and ethics?
- Who will prod you when you need prodding.
- Who will hear you out – but only so far when you complain about some hard times.
- That will help you be positive and see the use of your gifts and skills.
- Will help you get through rough patches when some things are beyond your abilities.
- But who will also get you back on track and inspire you with anything that seems to be thrown at you?
- Who will inspire you, motivate you and think of ideas and solutions that you have not considered.
- Who will help you with brainstorming so you learn to come up with solutions.
- Who will question your way of thinking and work with you to change that by suggestions they make or with resources or people they know of to call upon.
- Remember your Faith is a foundation of what you stand for – don’t forget or negate your ethics and values in all that you plan for. To me God has his hand over all – whether believing or not and he gives equally to all. Whether our gifts are different to someone else’s or not – we all have a capacity to give from what we have been given. As in the front image I have used – whether we rise or fall (like the hot air balloon) his hand is behind all things. Make the most of your mentor or coach as they have often been given different gifts than you and will see things differently.
- Lastly a coach or mentor, will remind you, that you do have a worthwhile and Doable dream.
A coach and mentor will question your mindset and how you see things. They will keep you accountable on a daily basis. Doing it on a weekly basis will let you slip through the cracks if you are easily side-tracked. They will remind you that your dreams are worthwhile and doable.
Often people talk about having passion – but do remember without discipline dreams don’t come to much. They are just that – talk. There needs to be a combination of both. So are your dreams worthwhile and doable? Think about what motivates you and gives you inspiration.
