The Audacity of Making Dreams Manifest
Dreams do not have an expiration date, nor a perfect date to start. There are thousands and thousands of positive examples of people way past 30 years old making their dreams manifest. The difference between where you are and where you desire to be is one action away. Words don’t make dreams manifest nor does wishing, only intentional and sometimes unintentional action can cause dreams to manifest. Something has to move. Something has to be sacrificed . And something has to change to cultivate the mind and heart of the dreamer to finally decide to pursue his or her dreams. No one can do this for us. Make today that day you totally commit to manifesting your dreams. Baby steps count! Take a step towards your destiny. Don’t let fear speak for you. Let your faith speak loudly. Carpe Die!

The Power of Being Faithful
Loretta reads Judges 6:11-16 to encourage us that we really are more than conquerors. Gideon said he was from the weakest family group and that he was the least important member of his family.

Loretta also reminds us to be grateful for all things and to offer grace to others in all situations. We can only accomplish these things through faith.

We miss so much beauty when we only look to the left and to the right.

The Power of Finishing
Some of us are starters and some of are finishers. I strive to be a starter and a finisher. Loretta shares how the death of a loved one is this most devastating pain we will experience in life. And the experience is definitely a justifiable reason to not want to finish a goal or plan that we started. However, if we decide to finish a goal or plan in their honor that can easily motivate us to finish what we start because our loved ones would want us to. God always finishes what He starts. He is a promise keeper.

Being Optimistically Faithful is Innovation
There is a huge difference between being optimistic and having faith. Being optimistic is having positive thoughts and speaking positive words. Having faith is believing and behaving everyday like God word is the truth. Faith is action. Optimism is more in the lines of justhoping something is so. Faith believes it is so and aligns deeds with that belief. In the book of James 2:14-46 it is made very clear to the reader that you must include action with your belief system to see the change you desire. We will talk more about faith in the coming weeks. Unwaivering faith is powerful. And we can all access this power. Keep listening and applying the Strategies for professional and personal growth!

The Right Way to Win Everyday
Remember the childhood game of Tug of War. When choosing your team, you would choose the the kids you thought were strongest players. Sometimes your team would be up against a team that is even stronger than your team. Then you would start screaming to your team "pull pull pull". So when you are going through rough patches life, remember it is okay to tell yell "pull pull pull". For me this equates to praying for a "win" (a blessing) when I feel as if too much is going contrary to how I planned. My after I have tried all I know to do, my "pull pull pull" becomes a desperate prayer to God who is with me wherever I go. When I use wisdom instead of my own strength, My "pull pull pull" turns into simply remembering, He is Jehovah Shammah.
