Don't Allow Others To Kill Your Dream

Ever been over the top excited about pursuing your God-given dreams and couldn�t wait to tell everyone who would listen?

However, after receiving less than enthusiastic responses you started to second-guess yourself to the point of not pursuing the very things you were excited about in the first place.

Making the decision to go after our dreams automatically triggers some level of excitement.

I believe this is one of God�s ways of helping us counteract any fear we also may be feeling. Without excitement we most likely won�t get out of the starting gate.

This is why we must not only learn to protect our God-given dreams but also protect our God-given enthusiasm for them.

To do this we can learn quite a bit from Nehemiah;

�I got up in the middle of the night, I and a few men who were with me. I hadn't told anyone what my God had put in my heart to do for Jerusalem. The only animal with us was the one I was riding�. Nehemiah 2:12 The Message Bible

Nehemiah kept his mouth closed concerning the things God had placed in his heart to do. It�s a good thing he did because Nehemiah quickly found out that not all was excited about what excited him.

The fasted way to kill a dream is to kill the enthusiasm for it.

Unfortunately this happens when we allow others to dampen or soften our own excitement toward our dreams simply because they are not.

Not everyone is going to be excited about what you are attempting to accomplish.

Until you have built up enough faith and confidence in what you are pursuing it may be wise to not widely share the details. Although, know every excited part within you is going to want to do just that.

Only sharing limited information with a select few may be a better idea. Those select few who are if for no other reason are excited because you are excited.

As much as we desire to tell the entire world about our dreams we must desire to protect them even more.

And don�t worry everyone will know soon enough when they see the dreams become realities.
