We all have had dreams as a child about what we wanted to do or be when we grew up. Or maybe we became inspired by another person’s accomplishments or our role models. Whatever the source of your dream, it’s still your dream and available to you for fulfillment, if only you have the faith and courage to follow it through.
This may not be easy. Too many of us look for the easy way. But the victory is given to those who take the Hero’s Journey with its challenges and obstacles to meet and overcome. These are what make our story sweet and inspiring to others as well as creating the successes along the way that we are seeking at our journey’s end.
“You can trust the creative power of the universe. It is the creative power of your subconscious mind and is inexhaustible. It knows neither worry or fatigue. It is perfect in its expression and precision. Give it great goals to accomplish and it will. Use it for greatness.” Raymond Charles Barker
Prolific dreamers, inventors, and innovators have given the world the most fascinating and useful insights and inventions by meeting their challenges along the way. Galileo, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, and more have had visions and dreams about the universe and about ways to enhance our lives. Just read their inspiring stories.
You too, have dreams. You have visions and goals that are important to you and to the world. You may have put them aside due to obligations and time constraints, or fears and doubts, but they are still within you.
I invite you to focus on you goals now. Revisit those dreams that inspire you and encourage you to stretch myself in new ways. Feel a new stirring within your own soul to begin the steps to fulfill those dreams now.
Affirmation: “With persistence, faith and prayer, I can and will follow my dreams to the joy of their fulfillment.”
But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.—2 Chronicles 15:7
