I have a 16 month old little girl named, Hope. She is our third little bundle of joy and she is busy. She has learned how to walk and now gets into everything. If she is awake, she is going from one thing to another. Toys capture her attention, but overtime she is bored and she has moved onto the next thing. If we are not careful she will get into the garbage or toilet if we don’t shut the bathroom door. Good and bad things occupy her day.
How many of us never mature beyond this? Always on the go and when someone asks how we are we say, “busy.” It’s like the American answer to give. Rarely focused; just an object in motion. Occupied by the silliest things. Your dream won’t come easy. You need to cut out a lot of the distractions in life. Your dream will require you to focus on one thing for a prolonged period of time. You well could be easily distracted by junk and by good things.
Momentum will happen with your dream over time. It is the prolonged pressure that is required to see your dream through. You must maintain focus on your dream like a magnified glass. The focused energy of the sun through the glass can cause a fire. Our lives, when focused, can have the same effect. When you move the glass around though, there is not enough energy to catch a fire. The lens must stay firmly focused.
At times your dream will feel like it is a million miles away. Keep making small steps in the same direction. The time that it will take is not always fun, however, it is required to become excellent in any skill. Put in focused time and watch your dream take on new life.
When you have success which you will, be careful on how quickly you layer things on top of your beginnings. One of the biggest times for business failure is actually bred out of success. Don’t expand too quickly, rather make calculated moves over time.
So again focus your energy over time and allow God to multiply your dream. Patience is not easy, but it is worth it. Your reaction to distractions will determine whether you will achieve what God has put in your heart. (Tweet it) Be blessed on your journey.
How do you stay focused on your dream?
