When you are stuck in the impossible


How many times have you heard that word?

How many times do you say it yourself?

I think we journey through long seasons of the impossible, where our dreams seem so very far away.

I understand these seasons, actually I am in one right now, and it is painful and difficult, actually it feels impossible.

What do you do when you are stuck in the impossible?

I try and understand the valley for what it is AND I try not to lose sight of that glimmer of hope sitting far away on the horizon; for there I faithfully believe I will find my dreams patiently waiting for me.

When you are standing in a place of doubt

Valleys are dark places, you rarely get to feel the warmth of the sun and the ground is often thick with mud.

It’s easy to get lost in a valley, you begin focussing more on the mud and the cold than you do on your destination.

After a while, the alluring image of your original destination (your dream) drifts from your mind; you begin to build a home in the valley, survival takes over and the sense of adventure is lost from your soul.

Have you made peace with the valley and given up on your adventure?

You need to know that this valley was never meant to be your home, it was a trial, a test, a season of hardship designed to sharpen and train you for the mountains ahead.

Perhaps it is time to burn your house in valley, sling on your backpack and get moving again?

An incredible mountaintop experience awaits you with a magnificent view over a thousand or more valleys; do not remain stuck in the cold valley of doubt, instead head towards the warmth of the sun and live.

Crush The Enemy Of Your Dreams With These 3 Weapons

The start of something new always seems to bring a natural resistance.

By fighting off the “dream demons” that tend to impede our ability to press forward in business and life — we empower ourselves.

On my own journey, at the start of new things I’ve incorporated a few key practices that have halted the enemies of my dreams right at the threshold…I have NO desire for them to get a foothold in my heart or mind.

Here are three practices for you to wield in your own life…

1. Take out the trash regularly — our minds have a way of getting cluttered quite easily when we are starting something new, simply take the messages, thoughts and ideas that are working against you and discard them; you can physically model this by jotting down your negative thoughts on paper as they come and then simply trashing them.

2. Adjust your sightline — It’s so very easy to be overwhelmed emotionally and mentally encumbered with all that you do not have, I encourage you to change your line of sight and to gaze upon what you DO have, as these are the things that will aid you in moving forward.

3. Be an intuitive leader — start-ups (whether a business or passion project) often render us a staff of one, wearing many hats; be sure to stay busy in the things that matter the most and if you’re wondering what to do next, think about what you truly desire and allow that to be your guide…trust your ability to lead yourself in this.

The 4 Truths About Blogging – Straight From My Heart

The First Truth:

With an internet connection and with a few immensely powerful words that resonate deeply with human truth any fool can now change the world.

“I am such a fool and I search daily for the kind of truth that will resonate deep in the hearts of others, do you?”

The Second Truth:

Although millions will try and impart significant change upon the world through this medium (blogging) today, very few will succeed.

“Finding deep human truth and communicating it clearly in a profoundly powerful way is a very difficult thing to do.”


The Third Truth:

Unless you invest your resources in going deeper and finding out exactly what it is you have to offer the world, you will most likely fail.

“We must always journey to the point of vulnerability to discover the truth within ourselves, only then can we honestly connect with others.”


The Fourth Truth:

I believe that you have something very significant to share with the world; it’s in the perspective of your heart and NOT in the cleverness of your mind, find it and you will connect with others in a powerful way.

If there is one thing that makes me angry it’s the manipulation and the control of other people.

It’s drives me to the point of inner fury.

So many organizations, so many small businesses, so many parents and teachers are guilty of this crime.

In many ways the point of the manipulation and control is to force others to acquiesce their dreams, to lay down their own future for our good.

There is often a sense that this is okay because we are paying them, like money confers a sense of ownership on another’s life.

Truly good worthwhile work doesn’t stifle people, it grows them up, it propels them towards their dreams, it’s not about ownership it’s about leadership.

Think about the people who you have the privilege of leading – what are their dreams, if you don’t know — ASK.
