How do you decide which dream to pursue? Life is all about priorities. We all have many things that we would like…a better marriage, a thinner body, a new car or a trip to Europe. Most of what we want, we could have, if it was a high enough priority for us and we were willing to pay the price.
I have a friend who has always wanted to go to Paris but has not yet gone because she “does not have enough money.” That same friend spends a large proportion of her income on fancy clothes and expensive food. Her YES to those commodities, in reality, outweighs her YES for Paris.
In the same way I would like to say YES to eating chocolate cake everyday but it would go against my YES for a healthy lifestyle. In truth, I most often say NO to chocolate cake, even though I love it, because of my quest to maintain a healthy weight. When I say NO to chocolate cake I am really saying YES to health. Do I want the chocolate cake? Certainly I do! But there is a stronger YES inside of me, which is the YES to health.
What dream is your priority is this new year?
Do your decisions and goals reflect that?
What do you need to say NO to today in order to say YES to your dream?
