Never Enough

Posted: Updated:

The finish line is imminent. Don't give up now! You have planted the right seeds and now you are waiting for the harvest. Now all there is left to do is wait... that's the most difficult part.

While waiting for your plans to come to fruition, it is never enough to simply speak about your dreams, you must actively pursue them. So many people have great ideas and visions that the world may never behold because they fail to cultivate their dreams by engaging in the necessary tasks to achieve their goals. No good thing in life comes without work and sacrifice, so dormant goals are just that -- an imaginary reality.

Once you invest time and energy into your dreams by praying or meditating, reaching out to individuals who have attained success in the area of your desire, and becoming a scholar of your specific area of interest, you will begin to breathe life into your dreams. As soon as you begin to see the manifestation of your desires come to pass, you will want to do it again, and again, and again.

As human beings, we are created to be innovators. Realizing a dream or accomplishing a goal should not be a one-time occurrence in life. Achieving your goals should become so addictive that you cannot and will not rest until you have achieved one goal, then the next, and then the next, finally accomplishing all of your goals, one by one.

Become inspired by life. Take time to live in the moment and enjoy the beauty of a sunrise or sunset. Express appreciation for a memorable conversation with an old friend or regain strength and motivation that you are indeed on the right track by sharing your innermost dreams and desires with your family. Your life experiences breed inspiration. Inspiration encourages you to dream. Dreams inspire action. Action produces accomplished goals.

What is currently inspiring you? Open yourself up to receive the message from the inspiration. That message or lesson could be exactly what you have been searching for to unlock the inspiration for your dreams. Dream big! Respect the process and enjoy the journey of pursuing your goals and aspirations. Remember it is never enough to only dream -- you must actively commit to make those dreams a reality.
