Is something blocking your dream and the impact you feel called to make?
Chances are one of these limitations has been standing in the way between you and your dream:
Physical – you don’t have the necessary things like skills, stature or geographical location Health – an illness or your wellness needs have trumped your time and focus
Relationships – you don’t have the support of your family, authorities, friends, peers, community
Finances – it will take a huge financial investment by you (and maybe others) to move you forward
Legal restrictions – dang those red tape and committee meetings
Overcrowdedness – boatloads of others already seem to be doing it; the market is crowded and you’re not sure how to stand out
Disorganization – you’re not sure what to focus on first, how to delegate or you let the urgent dictate your attention
Time – you have work, family or other commitments that clash with the time this dream requires God – you are surrendered to the Holy Spirit’s leading and He’s told you to wait
Doubt & Insecurity – you lack the faith that you’re called and the confidence that you’re the one to do it Fear – you borrow energy and focus from today to deal with things that haven’t happened in the future
So what do you do with that?
Here are 3 unexpected truths that can help you navigate your limitations.
1. Your dream wasn’t meant to be easy
Key:Know the most productive, profiting actions to take. Focus on the pieces you can control. Delegate or request support for what needs to be done but that you don’t have to do. Let go of the rest for now.
2. Sometimes dreams don’t come true.
Key:Sometimes big faith + team + strategy + perseverance in pursuit of a God-sized dream leads to a bigger than you imagined. Sometimes it turns out differently than you aspect. And other times the idea of the dream turns out to be the stepping stone to flourishing in your calling. The key is to have adaptable faith that stays strong through the journey.
3. Your dream is meant to shape you.
Key:In the pursuit and diligence, you are developing the strength, hope, gratitude and faith for the success ahead.
