The 7 Dream Killers Part 7: LACK of ACTION

There are people who attend all the seminars and read all the books. They have all the information. But there is one problem. They don’t apply what they know in their life. It all ends in theory.

See, you can have all the information in the world but it won’t help you unless you start applying it to your life. Knowing is good. Doing is better. Men of knowledge abound. It is the men who are willing to put into practice what they know that the world needs. Things don’t just happen. They are made to happen. Begin taking action in the direction of your dreams. It is the only way you can turn them into reality. Even a tortoise will arrive at its destination if it is moving. Don’t just sit there. Get moving. Start doing. Take action.

The 7 Dream Killers Part 6: SELF DOUBT

Many people doubt themselves. They don’t feel worthy of their dreams. “Who am I to do this, to make this contribution, to live this life?” They have convinced themselves that a life of meaning and contribution is only possible for others and not for them. They look at their backdround and at their current situation and begin to wonder if they can turn their dreams into reality. “Is it possible that a person like me, a person with this kind of background can achieve this?” They belittle themselves. They doubt their God-given gifts. As a result they don’t even dare to try!

Frank Lloyd Wright once said that, “the thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.” Without faith it is impossible to to turn your dream into reality. You need to have faith: faith in yourself, faith in your dream and faith in God. Stop doubting yourself and begin seeing yourself the way God sees you: as someone special who was put here for a special reason. You are well able to make a meaningful contribution to the universe. You are a child of God. Believe.

The Dream Killers Part 5: LACK of PERSEVERANCE

Quitting too soon. Some people are very good at starting things. They just don’t seem to know how to keep on keeping on when the ride gets bumpy. As soon as they face challenges they abandon their dream and go in search of a new one. Perseverance, in the face of challenges, is key to the realization of any dream.

Nothing comes easy. You will go through rough and dark patches sometimes. But if you hold on and persevere the sun will rise eventually. Don’t lose heart. Keep on keeping on. Develop in you the spirit of perseverance-to be able to hang in there even when all the lights have been turned off, even when you can’t see the silver lining. Winners are people who refused to quit. Hang in there. If you get used to quitting you will always be quitting!

The 7 Dream Killers Part 4: LACK of DISCIPLINE

Turning a dream into reality requires an awful lot of discipline: being able to do what needs to be done when it needs to be done. You can’t just show up when you feel like. Winners have a way of disciplining themselves to do what has to be done when it has to be done.

When you have a plant you cannot water it only when you feel like. It will die! It is the same with your dream. It is like a plant in the garden. You have to water it when it needs to be watered, not only when you feel like! That is how winning is done: doing what needs to be done when it needs to be done-even when you don’t feel like.

The 7 Dream Killers Part 3: INDECISION

 

Indecision is the inability to decide. Many dreams will never see the light of day because of indecision. Many people are undecided. I bet you know someone who is always “still thinking”. Every time you ask them what they want to do with their life you get the same answer: “still thinking”. Two years later someone is “still thinking”.

Granted, there is nothing wrong with thinking. But you cannot take forever to think. If you are not decided on where you want to go, how can you get there? Spend some time to think about your life and DECIDE what you would like to do with it in this time that is given to you. What do you want to do with your life? What legacy do you want to leave behind? You have to make the decision. It is only when you decide where you want to go that you can figure out how to get there.
