5 Steps to Inspire You to Move Forward With Your Dreams





By Shelby Alexander Griggs



So many of us have dreams. Some of us are living them out and some are quietly longing for the right time and opportunity to present itself. Many often don't even speak their dreams fearing ridicule from family and friends. I say, the time is NOW. Here are some things you can begin to implement to get you on track to pursuing the life of your dreams.


#1 CHANGE YOUR MINDSET

No matter what your family and friends say, you have to believe in what you're doing. They can always sense when you're not confident. So speak LIFE into your dreams.


#2 EVALUATE YOUR CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE

It is imperative that you assess your inner circle and surround yourself with like-minded people. You need cheerleaders not fear leaders around you. Fighting for your dreams will be hard enough. You don't want Negative Nelly bringing you down.


#3 FIND A MENTOR

You need to find someone who is doing what you desire, well. Connecting with a mentor who is successful is not only crucial but can be life-changing.


#4 BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS

Remember that it's YOUR dream. God gave it to you and not everyone will see what you see. It's okay that they don't and you shouldn't be discouraged by that.


#5 REMAIN AUTHENTIC

Be yourself. Focus on the "why" you decided to pursue your dream. People will have their own opinion about what you should do. They may even want to change your mind. Always remember the intention of what you do. You must have a real purpose. Your purpose will anchor you in the midst of rough waters.
