If you can dare to dream, you can have your heart's desires.
Have you ever watched TV and thought to yourself, ďI wish I could work in a company like that or live in a house like that. I wish I could have a body like that or look that good. I wish I had a handsome man like that or be married to a beautiful woman like that?Ē Ever thought, ďI wish I could own a car like that?Ē Ever felt little or of no significance after watching a love story while sitting on your sofa, wrapped in a blanket while eating popcorn? Ever realized how crummy your job was after watching a single man or woman have it all, while thinking how hard you work just to barely pay the bills? Ever wish your life could be similar? Well, first let me say this. Thatís TV! Life isnít quite as simple as TV puts it. However, you can have exactly what you see.
Your life is not exempt from the finer things in life. You too can live in a big fancy house, drive a Mercedes Benz, have wonderful kids and work for a fortune 500 company. If itís there, itís obtainable.
I have never envied anyone for having something nice. Rather, it excites me to see them with it. If someone else was able to get it, that means itís able to get. Itís obtainable and I can get it to. I may have to work hard for it, but I can still have it. The same goes for you. If someone has it, you can have it too. Just be careful you donít want someone elseís. Thatís coveting and not allowed.
Where do you see yourself in the next year or two? Whatís your short and long term goals for your life? Are you planning to be a better person and have a little more? Are you preparing yourself to become an asset to others? What do you want? Where do you intend to go?
Everyone has a reason for being here on this earth. Our purpose is far greater than we could ever imagine. Some are still students when they should be teachers. Some are still walking when they could be driving a luxury car. Some are still borrowing when they should be financially assisting others. Some are even still renting when they should own their own home. Why? They dare to envision a better life and work towards it.
There are a lot of guys that approach me (Iím single like that). They come in all shapes, colors, height and importance. However, because of what Iíve been through and the vision Iíve set for my life, the list remains narrow. Of course my flesh loves to focus on and remind me that Iím lonely, but I already know what I will and will not tolerate. I have valued myself and know what I deserve. Therefore, I continue to allow myself to wait for the one who is for me. How do I do it without giving in and changing my standards? I see myself with what I want and like what I see. I tell myself I deserve to have the best and I work towards it.
It is very important to seek God and find out what His plans are for your life. Fulfilling His plans should be your ultimate goal. God commanded it and it is the most rewarding. In pursuit of His plans, your life will unfold and you will receive Godís blessings. Your personal dreams will come true in the process of doing what you have been called and anointed to do. That is when you will walk in total peace, love, and happiness. You will find the complete package to your heartís desire. And no one will have the power or the ability to pull you away from God. Itís worth the wait and the hard work.Oh did I say HARD WORK? Yes I did! Nothing good will come easy. That is why you must see yourself where you want to be. It strengthens your motivation and gives you the drive you need to get what you want.
What do you see? Where are you? What are you doing? Who are you doing it with? Are you succeeding? Are you overcoming? Are you going higher? Yes? Good! Thatís all it takes to get started. Now make your plans to achieve it.
