What’s keeping you up at night? If you said nothing then I believe you are in need of a dream that is igniting on fire. I have been up for the last three nights pleading with my mind to go to sleep and stop this insane, non-stop brainstorming. You will know that you have found your passion when it keeps you up at night. I have been birthing an idea for three years. But every time I get close to giving it birth I let the dream die. Why? I have been asking myself that very same thing. I thought it was because I was afraid of failure. If you try there is no such thing as failure only set backs. I know this deeply. That was not my reason. Could it be because money can get tight? No, I understand that when you have a dream the money finds you. Then it must be because someone has already had the same idea. The idea I had, I thought I was the only one with this idea. As I researched and found out, that some guy had won the noble peace prize for my very same idea in 2006. I could decide to stop and say it already being done. But I believe in my abilities and that I have a unique gift to offer the world that only I can present. So what is it that has kept me from moving forward? I have come to the conclusion that I have been too afraid to succeed! Never in a million years would I have thought that would be me. But, the more I thought about it the more I realized it was true. If I succeed what would that do to my kids, to me to my family? Then it happend, that I could no longer could keep that as an excuse. If I didn’t try what would that say to my kids. What would that say about me. Once I overcame that obstacle in my mind, the ideas just won’t stop coming. I am arguing with myself at nights to go to sleep. I wake up in the morning with a thrill in my heart. My mother just told me that I seem more joyus. Did she not see the bags under my eyes? The thing is the Lord has planted a dream in my heart. A dream that I have fought for three years. A dream that if it was given to someone else would haunt me for the rest of my life. This is my dream and I am the one to do it. I must not miss the chance and watch someone else do what I know I am meant to do.
Is there a dream inside of you? What is stopping you?
