Sometimes, we find ourselves stuck in life. We have dreams and aspirations that we want to accomplish, but lack the resources or know how to carry them out. If this reality persists for a long time, many throw in the towel altogether and stop trying to achieve what they want. I’m starting to realize that if there is something that you want to have or do, you have to become obsessed with it. You may not be able to control when you will get it, but you can control if you get it or not. By being obsessed with it, you actually begin to intentionally and unintentionally do things that bring you closer to your desired outcome. I believe that your obsessions (the healthy ones) are a sign that the Creator has something for you in that particular area. I use to think I was going too hard in certain areas, only to later understand that God put that drive in me to accomplish or gain something in particular. Use that fire to drive you to places you’ve never been before. That fire is the faith (found in scripture) that can really move mountains.
Don’t ever throw in the towel on your dreams. As long as you have breath, push toward them and never let them go. They are meant to become reality. The adversity you face is just an indicator of how great your dream is and the impact it will have on those around you. The obstacles are meant to build your character and give you the proper perspective once these dreams are tangible. Every dreamer has it rough. Every visionary will feel like giving up at one point or another. You are not alone, the difference between success and failure is perseverance. That’s all. If you can hang in there you will make it.
