Preparing For What You've Prayed For!
God will put dreams, ideas, and passions on your heart for you to follow that will seem outrageously crazy to the average person. He will give you a plan so that you can lay the foundation and begin building what He has called you to do. But the thing is, it won't make sense to the avearge person and that's ok, it's not supposed to. When Noah was builing the Ark in the bibile, he seemed crazy until it started to rain. Don't worry what others say or think about what you're doing, instead focus on what God
called you to do. Whether that's starting a blog, a business, or switching careers, whatever it may be, take a leap of faith and just do it!
When you step out on faith, it will be hard. It's one of the hardest things you will do actually. More than likely, you won't see the benefits over night or for a while. That's ok, keep building and laying the foundation to where you wanna be! In order to get where you're going, you're going to have to put in work like you're aleady there.
Sometimes we forget that we have to pay our dues on our journey to success. None of us are immune to struggles, obstacles, no's, closed doors, and dead ends. It's a part of the process. No matter what happens on your journey, whether good or bad, prepare for where you wanna be or do in life. Act as if you already have it. Study what you want to do, ask questions, seek a mentor, teach yourself what you can, but don't sit around idle, waiting for opportunity. Work your ass off until oppourtunity, chance and talent meet so that you'll be ready.
If you want to be good at a certain sport and play professionally, train like an athelete in that field would. If you want to be an entertainer, take classes, do extra work, intern for someone in the entertainment industry or watch them in film. If you want to be a business owner, create a plan, put it in place and be about your business. Sometimes you have to build the dream and build the hype up around it yourself.
When you prepeare for you pray for, it allows you to not dwell on what you don't have and work towards what you want to have. It allows you to put your energy to work in a positive and healthy way to get where you want to be. It allows you to lay the foundation to your dreams so when you have the oppourtunity, you're prepared and ready to go.
Wherever you are on your journey right now, don't be discouraged. You are exactly where you should be! Instead of focusing on what you don't have, focus on what you do have. Everyday, do something that puts you closer to your dreams, no matter how big or small it may be.
It can either be "Day One" or "One day," the choice is yours!
