How to accomplish your dreams!

I am not going to tell you some magical unknown way on how to accomplish your dreams. But I will tell you how anyone can accomplish anything they want. A while back as a kid I always heard the saying "You can accomplish anything you put your mind to." I never used to really think that saying was actually true. When you think about it from another stand point it opens your eyes to a whole new reality of what you really can accomplish.

Have you ever seen the Pursuit of Happiness with Will Smith? Well in that movie Will Smith a poor father living on the streets tells his son something truly inspirational. "Don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do something, not even me. They will tell you that you can't do it because they know that they can't do it." Wow how powerful is that. We always turn to people for answers maybe friends, family, co-workers, or maybe just anyone we trust. They might not always tell you what you want to hear. I have learned that if there is something in the world I want, that I need to go out and get it. You can do this by simply working really hard towards your dreams.

This is put really well in an article I read on another persons blog. Blog title The Pilgrimgram: A Telegram from a Pilgram - Are Christians Lazy?. I really advise you to read that article he has posted as it truly does open our eyes to why we don't accomplish as much as we would like to. I have a very important exam coming up and I was tossing and turning on how I can learn everything pass the exam, and still keep a strong and close relationship with God. I would like to read my bible more, view more biblical blogs, pray more for the people I interact with in my day to day life, and just keep that connection strong. Its really simple though, all I need to do is work really hard at both. Well I hope that this article gave you some useful information. Check out the article I told you about above and as long as you put a lot of hard work into your dreams there is no telling what you can accomplish!

I was really enjoying what I was reading and thinking "Someone else is feeling similar things to what I'm feeling." Then I saw your link to my post. OK. Caught me off guard. Thanks for the link!

Shortly after your comment, Richard posted some thoughts that I wish I had thought of.

You rock, Josh!
