We’re still talking about the TD Jakes motivational video entitled You Can Do It. Today we’re talking about the segment from 7:00 – 7:30, which is about your commitment to crafting your own soul-prospering life
Sometimes we look to others to be committed to our dreams while we hang back. We don’t fully commit to our own dreams. Not only do others pick up on this so they are reluctant to help for fear of taking on the burden of making our dreams come true, but it’s also a back-handed way of us asking for permission, if our idea is good enough, if we have what it takes
First of all, it’s our dream and isn’t the responsibility of someone else to achieve on our behalf.
Secondly, it’s our dream so WE are the one with the Vision and the special talents needed to manifest the dream. Others don’t have the Vision and they don’t have the special talents needed. It’s unfair–and perhaps cruel–to expect them to make our dreams come true for us.
Third, no one else can judge us and tell us if we’re good enough or if we have what it takes. No one else can give us permission–or withhold it. The fact that we have the dream is enough proof that we have what it takes and it’s also all the permission we’ll ever need.
Go for it! Go for your dreams!
Join me in listening to the video, paying particular attention to the segment between 7:00 – 7:30, and let me know what you think.
