Think Big, Start Small, Act Now! Part 1

Do you have a dream?Do you dream of being in a certain profession, starting a business, having a worldwide ministry or large charity, donating huge amounts of money to those in need? Do you think about going to school to change your career? Are you thinking about quitting a dead end job; owning your own business, writing a bestseller?

Think big!

If this sounds like the sayings of a get-rich-quick schemer, think again. There is no price to pay for thinking and imagining bigger than where you are now. You can only go places you can see in your mind’s eye. Thinking and imagining where you want to be will help you to separate real God given dreams from mere fantasies. Dreams have substance and are based in reality; fantasies are, well, just that. If you never entertain the thought, you will never leave where you are. People do not become great by accident. It starts with a thought, a dream, a desire.

Start Small.

What do you have now? Do not wait until you have more money, more time, more opportunities.  Start where you are. If you never start, you will never know what you could have achieved. No one starts at the peak of anything. The journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. If you cannot donate a million dollars start by giving ten. If you want to change your career, you may need to make some sacrifices to go back to school. If God has put it in you heart to start a ministry, start a bible study group in your home. If you want to write a bestseller, start writing down your ideas now.

Act Now!

Do not procrastinate, just do it. Gather as much information as you need to get started with whatever it is you have a passion for. Seek help. What if you don’t succeed? Regroup and try again. You may not be able to start your business with the penthouse office, but you can start in your garage. You may not be on the radar of a traditional publisher, but you could self publish your book and build on that. If you cannot get on TV, there is You Tube!

So there it is: Think bigger than where you are; start with what you have; go ahead and do it!
