My friend was determined to change her situation and have a better life for her child. She did everything she needed to do to, sometimes going to the housing agency twice a week on her days off looking for a place, and asking friends to keep an ear out for her. Eventually within months, she had an apartment AND a new job. Now, her focus was on a place to live with her baby, the job was a bonus. Sometimes God gives you a bonus for being steadfast and faithful. The point is she never lost focus of what her dream was and she held on until it happened.
Let me ask you a question...
When you look at the things that are dominant in your life right now, are you preparing to reach your goals or are you wasting time? If you are partying more than you are working, is your dream to be a promoter? If you are more involved in your friends lives than your own, is your dream to be in public relations? Your focus must follow your dream.
To follow your dream, you have to get up before others and go to bed after others, associate with people that you can learn from. Read everything you can read that will help you, you might take a class or two. You must eat, sleep, breathe and pray for your goals and dreams everyday.
"Obstacles are what you see when you take your eye off the prize" said Vince Lombardi, one of the most successful coaches in football history. What do you see?
Psalm 20:4 (NIV)
4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
Have a blessed week.
