As we approach another year, are you ready? Don’t just stumble into the New Year hoping things change. God will be there with you, but you have to do your part. You have to live with a vision and a purpose. I wrote this blog back in 2015 – before the release of the book, before speaking engagements, before the purchase of my home, etc.. I did the dreaming, praying and believing. God was faithful. Not all items I wrote down came to fruition that next year, many did but some took a year or two (God’s timing). I encourage you, dare to dream today – write down what you want the Lord to help you achieve in 2018! If it’s in alignment with His will and His word? He says he will give us the desires of our hearts.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” – Proverbs 29:18.
Andrew Carnegie hired Napoleon Hill to interview 500 millionaires for a book “Think and Grow Rich”. The first edition was released in March, 1937. While the title implies that this book deals with how to get rich, the author explains that the philosophy behind the book can be used to succeed in all areas of work and can help one to become or do almost anything they want. It took him over 20 years to complete the book, interviewing famous people such as: Thomas Edison, Theodore Roosevelt and Charles Schwab. Napoleon found out that these millionaires all had one thing in common: Clearly defined, written goals that were kept before their eyes.
A professor at VA Tech did a study. Asking random people on the street if they had dreams & goals?
- 80% responded they did not have any.
