We all hit those moments where we feel overwhelmed and not sure how to just pick up our feet to keep stepping in the right direction. Sometimes it seems to happen for no apparent reason. Those around us may make us feel like nothing we do matters or our hard work is pointless. Most of the time it isn't those around us that makes us feel that way, it is what is inside of our own thoughts that make us feel that way. I have struggled for years with feeling like no matter what I did or how hard I worked it didn't matter because nothing ever changed. What I have come to realize is that 99% of the time I wasn’t working hard enough and I wasn't working hard on the right thing. I was putting my focus in the wrong areas and on the wrong things. Sometimes, this issue still arises and I must fight through it. If we want things to change then we must have a clear vision and then set out towards that vision with intentional action. Nothing happens "by chance" or "by luck". If you want it, then you have to make it happen. This goes for every single aspect of life: finances, relationships, health, and your walk with God. It is not as simple as just thinking or dreaming about what you want then maybe doing things here and there that you hope will get you there. All that does is make you a dreamer.
