How to Let a Dream Die

#1 – Expect for everyone to understand you. (The quickest way to let the dream inside of you die is to dedicate yourself to everyone else's dream for your life!)

#2 – Believe that you are going to face zero resistance and that everyone will be excited for you!

#3 – Believe that it is going to be easy (where in the Bible did Jesus ever ask anyone to do anything easy or attainable without His involvement?)

#4 – Fall in love with the way things are rather than how they should be!

#5 – Allow people who have never accomplished anything significant to tell you why you can't either!

#6 – Procrastinate, always say "later" whenever you want to pursue the passion that the Lord put in your heart! (The snooze button is one of satan's best friends!)

#7 – Look at failure as confirmation that you should not have done what you are attempting rather than a lesson to be learned.

#8 – For goodness sake, don't you dare try to work hard…if a dream is going to die you have to sit around and "pray about it" rather than stepping up and using the gifts that Jesus has placed inside of you!

#9 – Don't trust anyone, you have got to believe that the only way for something to be done right is for you to do it…that way you never believe in others OR ask them to come along side of you.

#10 – Buy into the lie that you are average, ordinary, that OTHERS may be able to do great things but there is no way you could ever accomplish anything significant.

#11 – NEVER ask God to set you on fire with HIS passion and plans for your life.

Do these 11 things on a consistant basis and I will guarantee you will live a life filled with boredom, predictability, frustration and jealousy of others!

BONUS POST: If you REALLY want to dive into what God has for you then you need to begin to try to answer the question that changed my life…more about that right here!
