It takes work to fulfill a dream. Dreaming is a leisure activity, but it takes labor to get dreams out of ourselves in order to impact this world. Recently, I read this quote...
“A man who works hard stinks only to the ones who have nothing to do but smell.”
by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Remember that not everyone is going to enjoy or appreciate the work that it takes to fulfill a dream, but often those same people will enjoy or appreciate the results of it.
Why should we work so hard when others may not?
- Because if we do not fulfill the dreams on the inside of us God will give them to someone who will. What most people fail to realize is that being apart of fulfilling a dream is what gives us fulfillment. Without the work - activity; service; labor - we miss out on the joy that comes with the results.
What would this world be like if we all labored to finish our work?
- It would be a place where the plans of God were fulfilled one God-given dream at a time! - A place where His people were fulfilled individually and collectively.
Today - be Inspired to be Productive to be Fulfilled - bENCOURAGEd to do the work so that you can encourage others to do the same!
“As for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, and given him power to eat of it, to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labor - this is the gift of God.”
~ Ecc. 5:19 NKJV
