D– Don’t let anything stand in the way of your dreams!
You have to make up your mind that no matter what obstacles come your way that you are not going to give up on reaching your dreams! Things may not be as smooth as you would like for them to be, and times may become difficult when you are on the road to dream attainment, but you have to make a commitment that you will reach your dreams, come what may! Many things can be a obstacle to dream attainment, for example negative people, struggles, situations, finances and past failures. But once you decide in your mind that you won’t let your obstacles control you, but that you will control them, you will feel a sense of empowerment that will motivate you to continue to move toward fulfilling your dreams.
R– Realize that dream fulfillment takes time!
Your dreams may not happen over night, but keep pushing toward them. To many people are under the assumption that you believe and receive instantly. No, dream fulfillment doesn’t happen instantly, but it will happen if you keep believing. There is a process that dream attainment goes through, it is a time of preparation and a time to allow our faith to continue to grow. This second step to dream attainment a lot of times is the hardest step for people to make it through, because when they don’t see their dreams manifesting as quick as they think that they should, they just throw in the towel, and start to believe the fact that their dreams will never be fulfilled, so they give up. But we must remember that even when we don’t see our dreams being fulfilled that God is working on them! This is the time that we need to activate our faith and trust in God, and not in ourselves!
E– Eliminate Dream Killers!
If you have anyone in your life who does not support your dreams then they should not be a part of you vision. I am not saying that you have to cut them out of your life totally, but you have to disconnect them from your dreams! You don’t need anyone who is not supporting your vision or what you believe in! Dream Killers are those people who are always negative and constantly telling you why your dreams will never be fulfilled. These people are always trying to tell you where to go in your life, but they are stagnant in theirs. Eliminating dream killers is a decision that is healthy for you while you are on the road to dream attainment.
A– Always empower your dreams with faith in GOD!
If you can empower your dreams with faith in God, your dreams can be fulfilled in a way that you can’t even imagine. Many people forget how important it is to have faith, without faith you don’t have the extra empowerment that you to stay focused on your goals. Many people may say that their dreams were fulfilled without having faith in God. My answer to that it yes, motivation and determination can help you get to the top, but only GOD can help keep you there!
M– Motivate Yourself Daily!
Continue to tell yourself daily how important your dreams are to you, and how great you are going to feel once you have reached your dreams! Repeat positive words to yourself in the present tense. You can tell yourself daily “I have reached my dreams, I am living the life that I deserve to live, I am…” You should also write your dreams down and keep the notes with you in your purse or wallet, put sticky notes throughout the house or at work as a constant reminder. Make a dream board with your dreams written out and pictures on their that represent what your dream looks like! You can also write a short contract out to yourself promising yourself to stay motivated to reach your dreams, you can read this to yourself daily. You have to constantly reinforce in your mind what reaching your dreams will mean to you, this keeps you going in the right direction!
S– Speak life into your dreams and not death!
Never say anything negative about your dreams or your potential! Use your words to only bring positive results where your dreams are related. If you speak negative words the negative results will follow, if you speak positive words then positive results will follow! We can use our own words to birth or kill our dreams, so if you decide to only speak life into your dreams then it will have an everlasting impact on you. It will empower you and assist you in going from being a dreamer to being a dream achiever!
