Fear and a lack of faith are reasons a person never takes the steps necessary to fulfill a dream. There is fear of failing at the dream and/or there is a fear of being successful because it may require additional responsibilities and obligations. There is a lack of faith that one can accomplish the dream or that God can bring the dream to pass. One must develop courage and operate in faith to go after their dreams.
We cannot expect what we want to just fall before us. To obtain something requires some action on our part. Do not question whether or not you can do it. Believe you can and remember "I can do all things through which strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13). Now that you have prayed about it and planned it, are you ready to spring into action?
