I am praying and pleading that I have met the last person who will say to me, “If I get [insert item/monetary amount here], then I will be able to go do what I really want to do with my life.”

Are you kidding me?   Life is too short to spend wishing and hoping.   If you KNOW that you are called to do something, then get started today!   You may not be able to do it full time right now, but you can at least do it part time and develop the skills necessary to take it to full time.

You want to start a business?   Start doing the work part-time right now!   You want to be a stay-at-home mom?   Make the financial decisions necessary to at least work one less hour per day or one day less per week.   You want to travel around the world?   Start researching now on the Internet and save money to be prepared for the day that the dream WILL arrive!

STOP saying, “If I …”, and instead START saying, “I am ..” or “I will” or “When I”!

You CAN do what you are called to do.   What can YOU do to get started toward it today?

I had the opportunity to speak at NewSpring Church on Sunday in their series titled “The Blessed Life.”

My message was Part 3 of the three part series, and it was titled “Positioned To Live The Blessed Life.”

You can watch/listen to the message HERE.

I am so grateful for the day that Perry Noble walked into my house and said, “God told me to go start a church.   Will you consider being a part of it?”   If you have never read his website, I consider it the top leadership blog in the world.   Yes.   I said THE WORLD.

    The person who tries something and fails is infinitely more successful than those who try nothing and succeed!

    maybe You could….. volunteer in free time in the area of intrest, maybe write a blog about the area of interest, maybe research and register a domain name, or create a business card and print out about 20 and just keep them where you see them daily. (just to build the idea that you may not be now where you want to be, but you are on your way) Kind of like a “fake it until you make it!

    not perfect… but it’s an idea!

    oh…I just thought of this one.

    Start by reading books on your subject of interest…or subscribe to trade publications…or find seminar….or take a class… the only limit is that at which you place on yourself to use imagination.

    you are where you are and you can not go back and create a new beginning but you can begin to create a new ending.

    So what if every time you have said “I will” before, and started to work towards it, you failed miserably due to lack of support… It’s hard to say things like that once you fail enough times.
