The last post is so important that we felt to reiterate it here. You have to make a place in your heart for the thing you desire, for it to be willing to come and grace your life.
Go back and re-read last week’s post. Ponder on it. Journal about it. What does it mean to you? Then write us and let us know. We’d love to hear from you!
Sometimes we hold back in achieving our worthwhile dreams because of shame. We worry that if we are “more” others will feel like less. How urgent to destroy than that thought.
The world needs your work. The world needs what you have to offer. You solve nothing by being less than you are.
We need you to unfold your life’s work. So remember, the next time you feel “If I shine, will it make others feel badly?” the answer is a resounding “NO!”
Yes, sometimes people filter others’ success through dark, icky glasses. But will you solve their problems by remaining in your tiny cubby hole of life? No.
Just think: by you being willing to step into the sunlight and then to reflect it into the lives of others, you may wake up some sleeping soul who was afraid to shine. All because you realized that others are not less because you are more.
So many people waiting, needing you to shine for them. It’s not trite; it’s true.
Does it ever feel like what you have set out to achieve is too high, too hard, too slow to come to fruition?
We know how you feel. This is common when worthy endeavors are sought. Nothing truly worthwhile is cheap. Nothing truly worth working for comes in a day.
So the next time you feel discouraged, get busy. Put your “feet” in your symbolic work shoes and take one step in the direction of your dream. It will make a difference. It will increase your “do it” muscles, thus giving you the stamina to walk those additional miles still ahead.
And thus the journey of a 1000 miles is accomplished one step at a time. Trite saying? Yes. Profound significance. Absolutely.
Now go out there and get stepping toward your dream.
