What do you suppose they are? Those things that’ll kill your dreams?
You can’t believe they can be yours? Your dreams that is.
What about I don’t believe I can be that person.
Or there’s always I‘m not good enough to have my dreams come true?
These come under the category of doubt and yep that’ll do it. Doubt is a great way to repel anything that might otherwise be drawn to us. All those beautiful desires, burned out by the flame of doubt. So sad.
When we join the Doubting Thomas crew you can be sure we’re uncertain and distrusting. Uncertain of what? Distrusting of what? Us? The creative laws of the universe that are ours to operate to our heart’s content? What the heck’s with that? What are we focused on here…certainly not the fulfillment of our desires. Once again we’re back on that old arguing for our limitations bandwagon.
But really, one of the biggest killer of our dreams is inertia. Join it with fear and you have an awesome twosome, in the worst sense of the phrase. The terrible twos.
Our challenge is that there are times when the status quo is too damned comfortable. We don’t want to rock the boat, no, not even to experience our greatest dream, because what if….
It doesn’t work out…
I can’t do what I need to do to have what I want…
I might actually succeed and then what?
We’ll often follow this with
Well I know what I need to do
I know where my focus needs to be
I know visualizing helps
I know affirmations support me
Training my mind is essential
I should watch that prosperity video every day…
Okay, you caught me… I just threw last one in to see if you’re still paying attention and as a reminder to watch it if your dream is of abundance and prosperity.
Anyhoo, you don’t have time to do these things you’ve got too much to do. WHAT! The very things that support you in fulfilling your greatest dream you don’t have time for. You’ve got to be joking. Right? Inertia has reared it’s ugly little head.
Sad, but true…and yes I can be guilty of the same thing. Wrong priorities.
And how quickly we forget…
Just think of how we’re using our imagination, not to beget a new star or a new heaven, but to beget the dross of life, the leftovers, the rubbish. Think of the vibration we’re stuck in, and then think of all the obstacles and disappointments we’re attracting to us with said vibration. Errr, no thanks…not helpful thoughts.
The point that we might be missing here is that change is inevitable. And necessary. What we need to be doing is to welcome the idea of change, to take charge of the change in our life, instead of being tossed around like a tiny ship on a huge stormy sea of unrelenting facts and unfulfilled possibilities.
Take a look at your life and watch change as it continually rolls into your world. As you recognize and acknowledge it, you’ll become more comfortable and less fearful and step into a place of power, where you’re in charge of the changes, because you’ve initiated the inner change necessary for you to experience not just one dream, but a lifetime of dreams being fulfilled.
Whilst it was pretty nice being a passenger on our Caribbean cruise, we really need to be the person in charge on this ship of our life, we need to be the Captain, otherwise we’re not in charge of the inevitable changes that make up our reality, our very being.
Yes, we’re all busy. And sometimes have pressing things to attend to.
Don’t know about you, but there are times when I can turn the pressing into the crucial in a blink of an eye. Doesn’t make a jot of difference, our priority needs to be what’s best for our spirit. If we would but listen when our soul speaks we would get that being a creature of habit is great only if the habit that we’re the creature of is equally great.
If your habits are monotous and sapping the spirit out of you, even though you’ve persuaded yourself they’re necessary, better perhaps to listen to your spirit, it usually knows best.
As Disraeli said we are not creatures of circumstances, circumstances are the creatures of men. We are free agents and man is more powerful than matter.
Don’t let us be blinkered by our doubts and fears or inertia, they have a way of leading us into a small minded blinkered approach to life. No fear or doubt ever led man to the stars or discovered continents or cleared the way for his spirit to rise up and claim new and creative solutions to problems, however challenging.
The potential for greatness, for the fulfillment of our dreams lies in each one of us, and what better way to honour the gift of creation that has been bestowed on us all, than to use it for the betterment of our life and those within our sphere.
Count me in…what about you…are you ready to fulfill your greatest dreams or are you going to kill them with doubt or fear or inertia?
