Stir Up Your Faith On the Go with The Dyonne Lewis Show
Big dreams are rarely achieved by accident. Bringing your “A” game is not an option if you want to truly pursue your passion. There are times it will serve you well to listen to your inner child and there are times it will serve you better to listen to your inner giant.
Going big is not for the faint of heart. Realize the toughest battle that you’re tasked to fight will rage in your mind. Our minds are designed to do what they’ve always done: it’s called, habit. So making a choice to go big, can freak your “little mind” out.
When you start thinking big–gaining momentum in the pursuit of your goal will only happen once you get in the flow of sustained, focused action. Meanwhile, turn every obstacle into your advantage–God blessed you with a creative imagination. Trust Him to help you find your way.
Forget the naysayers, the time-wasters and the small players (they have given up on their dreams and resent you for grinding to accomplish yours). When you finally make a decision to go big, tell yourself, “There’s no turning back.”
What awaits is a “new you.” Prepare to re-invent yourself. I am not going to underplay what type of character-testing situations you will experience ahead. Many days will challenge your very faculties and force you to grow beyond your comfort zone in terms of your hard and soft skills–spiritually, emotionally, mentally and psychologically.
It will be difficult. Whether it’s the sting of betrayal, the disappointment of broken promises, or discombobulation of crazy-making folks, don’t be discouraged. There is a price to pay for success. It’s not unusual to have to pay in blood, sweat, and tears.
Yet, when you surrender to your purpose, by embodying the “bigger picture” of your ultimate goal, you’ll realize that your investment in your dream–win, lose or draw–is always worth it.
Just remember one thing: it’s not over ’til you win and/or you are ready to move on to the next challenge.
