Sharing your dreams

July 15th, 2009

I heard a statement a few weeks ago that has been rolling around inside me. It was on the AFL TV coverage. It said, “When I share my goals with people around me, that becomes their expectation of me”.

Now there are two ways this statement can be taken. The first is in the negative. If I tell people what I want to do that can become a burden and weigh me down. The second and the context it was said in – that if I share my dreams, people will see me in light of them. This is way more positive.

I believe it is important to share our big goals and dreams with people as it allows people to encourage, support, pray and come on board. It also helps them to see you differently and to see you in a bigger arena.

Many of us have God given goals inside of us. Dreams that are hidden away as we are too scared to share them. Sadly some God given dreams will never see the light of day.

I believe to key to seeing your God given dream come to pass is to share it with others. Because most God given dreams are way too big for just one person.

Today I want to ask you some questions. What is your God given dream? What are you wanting to do that is so much bigger than yourself that it needs others to come on board? Who is one person you can share that with today?
