4 ways to turn your dreams into plans.

03 August, 2015

Hi friends and happy Monday! Well here we are at the beginning of another week and there are so many great things in store. I've been back in Melbourne now for two weeks {shivers} and my creative brain has been tick tick ticking madly with sooooo many ideas. Yay. But as great as BIG ideas are, they are not really any good to us if they stay as ideas. Can anyone relate? So guys.... We need to turn our dreams into PLANS.

 

4 ways to turn your dreams into plans:

1. Get a mentor. Or 5. I was at Bethel's WorshipU a few weeks back and one of our fab speakers was Noah Elias. He said something that has stuck with me and has pushed me to action. "If you don't have a mentor, you're following yourself." Jeepers. So I am now on the path to selecting 4 or 5 mentors who I can seek wisdom from and who can help me put legs to the bazillion dreams in my head. Who are the mentors YOU have speaking into your life?

{ Sometimes it's hard to even know WHAT dreams are in our hearts? If you need help with this I will be starting a one-on-one "Anything Can Happen" dream coaching/mentoring program in the near future... so if you are interested email me HERE. ;) }

2. Plan your week and set deadlines. It's so easy to be generic with our dreams. But I am learning that by setting deadlines and structure for my dreams I can already feel the momentum building. I had a good chat with a great and wise friend of mine Dan, (who has just launched his own fab business Steege Consulting.) He was challenging me to be more specific and set {sometimes scary} deadlines. I'm already feeling super inspired as I feel more focused and strategic with my dreams.

3. Schedule a weekly dream date with God. We all know life is busy with a million things pulling us in every direction. Schedule time in your diary {as in book an appointment as if you were going to the doctors}, and just dream with God. Take the limits off and let him speak to you and awaken the dreams he has put in your heart.

4. Believe that at any moment... ANYTHING Can Happen. I am almost finished this book {YAY!} I have just set the deadline for my manuscript --> September 1, and already since setting this deadline I feel the momentum has increased. So let me encourage you, change the way you think. Write out the words {or CLICK HERE to get my fab gold or silver foil print} and put them somewhere you'll see them often. Look at them and declare them over your life all week as you think about your dreams. YOU might not be able to see how your dreams are going to happen, but remember...... God can do annnnnything.

"Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, FAR OVER and ABOVE all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].
Ephesians 3:20 (Amplified)

So what'dya say this week...?! Shall we?!

This week things are going to happen for you. Just you wait. So here's to being strategic, making plans and seeing our dreams happen.

Love you guys so much!
