Sometimes You Need Patience for Your Dreams to Come True

Top-10-Tree-Tunnel-007I was recently told how Chinese bamboo grows.  Young Chinese bamboo is a slow-growing plant.  When you nurture and look after the bamboo, it grows two inches in the first year.

It then grows two inches in the second year, it grows two inches in the third year and two inches in the fourth year.  Then in the fifth year it grows 80 feet!

When I heard this, it reminded me of our dreams.  At times, it can feel like you are working and working and nothing happens.  Then when you are not expecting it, things change, they take off, your life moves to a whole new level.

It’s important to nurture and look after your dreams.  Every step forward is a step in the right direction.  Keep looking after your dreams.  You never know when they will take off.

Goal Setting – Review and Reflect Process

When you are raising your awareness and starting to think about setting your goals, some great questions to ask yourself involve the previous twelve months.

  • What are your highlights?
  • What did you learn?
  • What did you begin?
  • What did you finish?

Some additional questions about the previous twelve months are:

  • What was your biggest triumph?
  • What was your smartest decision?
  • What word best describes your year?
  • What was your greatest lesson?
  • What service did you perform that you are proud of?
  • What are you happy about completing?
  • What three people have had the biggest impact on your life?
  • What was your biggest risk?
  • What was your biggest surprise?
  • What relationship improved the most and why?

Daily Decisions Decide Destiny

“Daily Decisions Decide Destiny”
Kelli Sibbit

265How very true.  Every small daily decision is working towards your destiny, your outcomes, you reaching your goals.

It can be as small as getting out of bed when the alarm rings, to what to have for breakfast, to what work to start on for the day.  The idea is that each little decision is a step on the path to your outcomes.

Every decision that you make throughout the day is important, no matter how small or large.  They are all leading to your outcomes.  Give each decision the attention it deserves.
