Turn your Dreams into Expectations
Do you know what insanity is? It’s doing the same thing but trying to get different results. If you do what you always done, you’ll get what you always got. So, time to do something different! Break out of your comfort zone!
Here are some keys to to keep expecting:
- Write and speak your vision. Your tongue is the pen of ready writer. So, what are you writing and speaking about your future? Confession precedes possession. If you are expecting great things, write out your ideas, strategies, partners, plans and post them up so you can see them often. I use “The Prayer and Purpose Planner” developed by Dr. Stacia Pierce. It is a visual diary for my life. Each page has a Faith Focus that represents my goals. I paste words and pictures that match the goal of each page. By meditating on what you want – and not on the circumstances around you – you will attract success. Keeping a vision of your expected outcome is a powerful faith tool to consistently reach your goals. So declare what you want; write out a confession. Your future does not respond to anyone else’s voice but yours. Speak what you seek!
- Be productive. My late uncle, Lowell Perry, would listen to our plans and help us articulate our dreams. Then he would conclude with, “OK, now it’s time to shake your fanny.” Meaning, get to work. Faith without works is dead. You have got to burn the midnight oil and apply some elbow grease to situations. Nothing is going to just happen. You have to act and be consistent, diligent, persistent and relentless! You have to make preparations for your big harvest, get busy like it’s coming – and it will! Expectation gives you energy to make stuff happen.
- Take the limits off God. Put your ex”SPEC”tors on! Avoid the negative and respond to everything in the positive. Keep the mantra: “Yes We Can!” burning in your heart to keep you moving towards the awesome future God has prepared for you.
Be proactive and start preparing for success. Prepare for abundance. Increase your faith and your activity. Create a clutter-free environment conducive for creativity. Form strategic alliances and purpose partners. Keep learning new ways to do things. If you do these things, God will do more than you can even ask, think or imagine.
Keep your neck out – watch it happen!
