Following dreams is like walking a tightrope. The first step is the hardest. You can’t turn back. Hope keeps you going. Faith takes you to the other side. Expect great things to happen. Walk in that belief. What once felt impossible will feel within reach. What you achieve will only go as high as what you believe. Reach for your potential.
The difference between greatness and mediocrity is quite simple. Mediocrity prompts a man to lower his standards to fit in. Greatness allows him to rise above circumstances to reach his potential.
Fill your garden with seeds of faith. Water your flowers regularly, and make room for them to grow. In the same way, make space for positivity in your life. Water your dreams daily. Watch as they begin to bloom. Consistency is key. Plant seeds. Be patient if results are slow. Give dreams time to grow.
Dreams and goals start to feel distant if set to the side. Perhaps what you can do seems insignificant, so you wait for one day. When pushed away, it's easy to grow more and more detached. Until one day, you don't recognize them anymore. Committing to small investments over time is hard. It may even feel like they don't leave a dent. But I can assure you it's always better to start. If you start, you'll end up somewhere. If you don't, you'll end up right where you start.
When I doubt that one step will make a difference, I take two small steps. If I think that two steps won’t leave a dent, I take three. Every time I feel like giving up, and that’s just about every day, I make a decision to take just one more step. Remember, always push yourself just a little further than what’s comfortable. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone. And make it a habit to take one more step every time you feel like giving up.
