Two things that stops you from every dream
Waiting on the perfect circumstance and the perfect idea
Today I’ll leave you with two short thoughts. We all have dreams or things we want to do, but very few of us actually achieve them — why is that? I think it lays into two things.
Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud they never harvest — (Solomon)
1. Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant
The first thing that stops many of us is this lie we tell ourselves that everything around us — every circumstance has to be perfect before we can do anything. It may be because of fear of what other people may think, or fear of failure or something else, but the fact is that so many of us tell ourselves that today is not the day to start working for those dreams because the weather is not perfect. My friend, the weather will never be perfect so it’s time we get over that and start realizing that their will never come a better time than Today to start.
2. If you watch every cloud you’ll never harvest
Clouds represents ideas here. We’re living in a time where the options are endless, you have so much to choose from. Do you want to pursue that or that? And ideas and dreams are so fun to just watch and look at that you may forget to actually do your dream. Maybe you just go from one idea to another — never executing — only talking & dreaming.
Dreaming is easy — Executing is hard
Or maybe you tell yourself that there will come a better cloud later, with another shape — a more beautiful cloud. Maybe you tell yourself that about your idea or dream you have — or maybe you tell yourself that about a relationship. The problem in this one is that most likely you’re driven by the fear of missing out — the grass is greener on the other side mentality. The problem with this fear is that it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. You’re afraid of missing out on the very best idea, or the very best girl or boy so in the end you never harvest and miss out on everything.
It’s always better to do something than nothing
So realize that if you’re driven by your fears, the thing you’re afraid of and trying to avoid is exactly what you’re gonna get. Instead be driven by love.
Thanks for taking your time to read this, I appreciate it a lot and I hope you got something out of this two simple thoughts. Have a blessed day.
