When thinking about your purpose, you come to the dream. What is that you would like to do or what do you want your life to look like in 5 years time? Without constricting your ideas with limitations (by saying I can’t possibly do that) write them down. Now make a plan to get there. Here’s some ideas to help you on your way:

  • Start with a small steps
  • Don’t give up; be determined
  • Set and review goals
  • Place a reminder on the fridge or somewhere visible of what you wish to achieve
  • Tell other like-minded people (people who will inspire, encourage and celebrate with you, not people who will put the dream down) – have a support team
  • Celebrate achievements – the small steps you take on the way
  • Visualize yourself achieving the goal.

In the decade of writing and editing my ‘New Life in the Mourning’ book I used to visualise seeing it on the shelf of my favourite a book store. After years I did (photo proof below). If I can do it so can you! It’s available as an eBook on Amazon or in hard copy from His Heart Ministry Training online store.
