Going After Opportunities
So how many of us have dreams and visions but feel that they are unreachable? It's like no matter how you crunch the numbers or what arrangements you make; your goal still seems out of reach. Trust me; I have been there. And to be honest, I still have those "I don't know if it's going to happen days." So I how do I stay focus? I always have to remind myself that I am worth it. I wake up every day and say I owe it to myself and my daughter to see things through. Cliché? Maybe but it works! You have to remain positive and be your biggest cheerleader in some of your toughest time.
When I first decided that I wanted to blog; I didn't even have a computer. I went out and bought notebooks and wrote every idea that came to mind down. It wasn't until I saw someone selling theirs online for $80.00 that I got one. The computer wasn't the top of the line, but it was enough to get the job done. I'm thankful for hitting rock bottom. I know it sounds crazy, but that experience made any accomplishment a celebratory one. The drive that one may have is somewhat more significant in their toughest times. Stepping out on faith and my $80.00 investment was my best decision yet.
I noticed that after I made up in my mind that I was going to move forward in a purpose that things began to fall in place. People that I have never met before that's right here in my city popped up on my timeline. Not just random people, but people that were in a position to help me. From my publisher for my book to an awesome young lady who helped me form my nonprofit, financial adviser, authors, etc. It is like GOD himself personally picked each one just for me. Pay attention to the people that are placed into your life. Those opportunities that present themselves to you are not happening by coincidence. Apply for that position even if you feel that you do not qualify. Invest in yourself even when the people around you don't understand why you move the way you do. You owe it to yourself to be all that you envision.
Remember that your dreams are possible. Stay positive, stay focus, and be ready for whatever opportunities come your way. Get out of fear and move!
