In the previous post, I talked about how the graveyard is the richest place on Earth because it contains all the unfulfilled dreams. Now let’s talk about why.
Why are we not pursuing our dreams?
Fear of failure. We are afraid of what we will feel if it doesn’t work out.
Fear of success. Believe it or not, some of us are afraid of winning. Because it means that we are more capable than we ever thought we were so now we really have to put our big girl panties on.
Fear of what others will think. We are afraid that if we fail, people are going to judge us. We are afraid that if we win, people are going to judge us. (And FYI, they’re judging you while you remain mediocre too so you might as well give them something good to judge you for.)
Laziness. Some of us are letting “I don’t feel like it” hold us back. It’s normal to not feel like it but it’s never a legitimate reason for not taking action.
All of these reasons are normal. Our brains are just doing its job of trying to protect us so it tells us that leaving our comfort zone of Ordinary to go into this unknown place of Extraordinary could be dangerous. Well, I think we can agree that pursing our dreams is uncomfortable, yes — but dangerous, absolutely not.
Is pursuing your dream while here on Earth, using your God-given gifts to make a difference in people’s lives worth being uncomfortable to you? Or will you leave money in the grave?
“Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift to Him.”
I spent years trying to find my purpose and the courage to pursue it so I know what you’re going through. Being on the other side of that now and knowing that with each passing day, I’m pulling others up by helping them follow their dreams which will allow them to then pull someone else up and help them and so on and so on, means everything to me. It becomes a ripple effect and everybody wins. So please reach out to me and let’s win together!
