Stop Dreaming - Day 155

I want to do a lot of stuff. I want to release iPhone apps. I want to release audio dramas. I want to make videos. I want to write blogs, *cough* not so much. I want to build inventions.

The problem is people tend to get stuck in the I want to do this. I want to do that. They don't want to focus on something and become good at it. And then move on to the next thing when they have the time to do it.. (And when I say they I mean me. <_<) 

We're given a lot of options. About a hundred years ago, you just didn't get very many options. You learned from your dad how to farm and you became a farmer because you were good at it. Or you could become a blacksmith, a doctor, or a lawyer. While today you have what feels like a million options. You aren't just a doctor. You could be an MD or an OD. You could specialize and be an infectious disease doctor or a gastroenterologist. You have a lot of options.

But it seems like many people instead of taking the many options and using them to their fullest instead they get stuck in some sort of frozen state of mind or something.. They go to college, switch their majors five times, and then finally when they graduate they work a job that's different than their degree anyways. And then complain about their job.

Anyways... Many people have been given the opportunity to follow their dreams. The problem is you need to actually follow them. (Assuming their godly) Enough sitting on the couch dreaming about your dreams. They have to turn into a reality. Otherwise, you're going to wake up in 10 years and you're still sitting on the couch with a bag of potato chips outside in an alley.. 

Last of all, I would just say use wisdom. You need wise counselors. You need people there who are willing to tell you you're terrible at singing or whatever it is.

"In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand, for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good." - (Ecc. 11:6)

Sow your seed and shoot for your dreams, and maybe it will prosper. But it won't ever prosper if you never sow any seed. 

"Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth. Walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes. But know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment." - (Ecc. 11:9)
