Unfinished Masterpiece

More Than Just a Dream

Every dream unrealized is like a masterpiece never painted, a hit song never sung, a great book never written. Every work of art began as a sketch or a dab of paint on a canvas. Every song started out as a single note. Every book originated from a single thought jotted down on a page.

Every dream realized began with a step of faith, a single act of courage. Make today the day you step into greatness. It only takes a single act of courage to take that first step of faith.

Faithful in Small Things

Balanced Expectations

Busyness and responsibility make it hard to balance daily life with a bigger vision. Still, it’s possible to find balance. Set hopeful expectations that are realistic, but be sure that your expectations are big enough. Expect great things to happen. Walk in that belief. What once felt impossible will feel within reach.

Step into the Vision

When I doubt that one step will make a difference, I take two small steps. If I think that two steps won’t leave a dent, I take three. Every time I feel like giving up, and that’s just about every day, I make a decision to take just one more step. 

Remember, always push yourself just a little further than what’s comfortable. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone. And make it a habit to take one more step every time you feel like giving up.

When it pops up, and I assure you it will, you have a choice. You can change your perspective and take action. Or, you can allow it to stop you. But, you can make the right decision despite how you feel.

Simple Test

Goals and dreams are personal. As much as we want those we care about to support us, this isn’t always going to be the case. Do whatever it takes to stay positive and encouraged independent of others’ reactions.

Remember, it’s not your responsibility to convince others that what you’re doing is right. You can’t change them, nor is it your responsibility to change them. Trying to change others’ opinions or views only drains your energy and does nothing to advance your vision.
