Dreams do come true (but not without action from you)

I have always wanted to travel – particularly in the US.  You see, from Manila, it seems almost impossible to go to US. Everyday, tens, if  not, hundreds of thousands apply for a visa at the US embassy and get denied.  But we took a chance, gave it our best shot and got approved! Not expecting anything, but praying only for God’s best for us.

Now we are here.  Hello happy reunions! Hello Disneyland, Universal Studios and sooo much more!

Learnings:

1.  Know what you want.  

What do you want to happen? Know your target! How badly do you want it? Do you want it that much? If not, just forget about it.

2.   Know why you want it. 

Have a big reason for what you’re doing. Have a compelling, moving reason. Why do you want it? What is your BIG WHY? The  bigger the why, the bigger the motivation, the greater the drive!

3.  Have a strategy.

It is easy to be overwhelmed when you have a project. Have a strategy, Create a checklist. Check online. Ask people who have  been there. Ask for tips. Ask for help if needed. Educate yourself. Be resourceful. Master your battle plan.

4.  Act on it. 

 Go get it.  Get off that comfy sofa! Schedule it. Commit to it. Decide to achieve! Move, move, move!

5.  Most importantly – Pray.

There is a great unseen mechanism that operates when we pray to our Heavenly Father. When I pray, I expect. (often called “faith”) and I tell (actually, more of “push”) myself not to worry for I am covered.  I know in my heart that whatever happens is all up to God since I gave this concern to Him.

Don’t you just love it when you just couldn’t believe that you are actually living your dream? That sense of victory, empowerment and of being alive.  Magic moment.

Dare to dream. Be brave enough to let it happen.
