Dreams are stepping stones to greatness and paves way to fulfilling purpose on earth. The dreams we have are birthed on our inside to live the life we earnestly desire. Christ has given us a mandate saying:
”Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over everything that moveth upon the earth”- Genesis 1:28 (NKJV)
We can live our dreams because we have dominion and power to speak the Word; to confess things as though they are. Speaking the Word keeps the mind alert and heart receptive as we journey through life.
As we journey through life, our quest for who we are, what we stand for and the choices we make help in the pursuit of our dreams. In our pursuit, we must learn to crawl, walk before we fly. While we journey we may trip, dash our feet against a stone or fail. Failure rears its ugly head like a growling lion, sends chills down our spine and tears us part. What must we do when failure rears its ugly head? Do we sit back and cry like a child who accidentally spoils his favorite toy? The answer is NO! A child can get a new toy from his parents if he has the right attitude.
A child who has good manners find his way to his parents heart no matter how displeased they are with him. Hence, the right attitude keeps us on track in the pursuit of our dreams. It keeps the naysayers away and attracts the dream chasers.
A child’s disposition speaks a lot about him; it could convince or dissuade the parents from taking actions. Therefore, a dreamer’s disposition when the going gets tough, keeps him going.
A child’s mind is a tabula rasa. It’s uninfluenced and fresh before it accepts what it may or may not consider as right or wrong. The mind is a like a baby; it accepts what its fed with as the parents watch it grow into an adult. The mind is like a garden; trees are cultivated for beautification and creates delight in the senses.
The right attitude challenges the status quo. It questions mundane activities and begs for change. The right attitude questions the past and embraces the future. Our dreams are propelled with the right attitude.
When we have the right attitude, our views are indispensable for achieving dreams even if we see life with a concave lens, while convex lens gives us a clearer vision for fulfilling our dreams.
The dreams you have and the zeal to achieve them spices your life no matter the slip- ups, jammed doors, road blocks or U-turns.
Light travels fast and radiates to dispel darkness. Let your light shine, let it glow from your soul to the souls of others; let it cascade through their bones , feel the flesh and heal wounded souls.
Dream, live and inspire lives!
