Dreams are defined as a series of thoughts, visions, or feelings that happen during sleep. They are often known to be a source of strength that propels one in reaching their God given destiny.
There are numerous people even Presidents of the United States; whose dream has become a reality. But there is also a considerable amount of people, who due to fear have given up on their dreams.
Fear, described by a friend is a useless emotion, it is ‘false evidence appearing real’ which can paralyze and keep us from stepping out in faith.
Lucile Ball (August 6, 1911 – April 26, 1989), Lucille had a hardscrabble childhood shaped by tragedy and a lack of money. Her success was hardly immediate. She is remembered as one of America‘s most beloved comedians. She was the first woman to run a major television studio and the winner of most every major entertainment industry award. Ball went on to star in “I Love Lucy“ and paved the way for women in the entertainment industry.
“One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.”
Oprah Winfrey (born January 29, 1954) overcame poverty, parental neglect, sexual abuse, and racism to become one of the most powerful entrepreneurs in the entertainment industry. In 1976, she moved to Baltimore hosted a hit television chat show. Afterward recruited by a Chicago TV station to host a morning show.
From 1986 to 2011, she hosted her own, wildly popular program, The Oprah Winfrey how. In 2011, Winfrey launched her own TV network, the Oprah Winfrey Network ‘OWN’.
” The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
Lucille Ball and Oprah Winfrey are two women who regardless of their personal struggles did not give up on their dreams.
They did not let their share of failures stop them. As a matter of fact, they refused to let the delays and detours paralyze them, their struggles became stepping stones in helping their dreams become a reality.
If our dreams are to ever become a reality, action and belief are a necessity. You will have to do what is necessary even when others discourage you.
You will have to believe in yourself, even when others don’t.
What is your dream? Have you written it down, prayed over it? Do you believe that God will give you what you need for it to come to pass? You should. He’s the creator of the world and He loves sharing His plans and purposes for your life.
Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. KJV
