The English (UK) Thesaurus that I use in MS Word, places the word “realizing” in two categories:
In the “Finding your dream” phase, you focused on the “what”. Now it is time to focus on the “how” and in doing so, please remember that:
- the Dreamer finds a passion
- the Realist makes it happen
As previously mentioned, it took me years to formulate my dream and to start the process of realizing it. The awesome moment was when I grasped that the realization of a dream is an on-going process (journey) and that it does not mean that “I have arrived” (destination). For me, this knowledge alleviated loads of stress and fear for the unknown.
As I certainly would not qualify myself as the expert, I can only share with you what worked for me in finding my “how”.
- Praying for insight and guidance
Psalm 16: 7 “I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.”
This Bible verse has particular meaning for me as I would often wake up in the early morning hours and have informal conversations with God, only to find those elusive solutions to my problems.
