    Moving Ahead

    Many prospective successful people start from scratch. Each had a magnificent dream or goal. When the opportunity met them they were immediately stymied by fear. There are three ways to get off of dead center and move toward that marvelous dream.

    Positive emotions can push us toward our goal when we are fearful and at a standstill. Some are so fired up with a dream they just have to reach out. The craving to achieve is more powerful than the fear of starting.

    The motivation for success needs to be deeply planted and a yearning to reach our goal or dream. This will move us from lethargy or inertia. We need a fervent desire to take an immediate step closer to our long held goal. When we look, we will find another step that needs to be taken (Matt. 7:8).

    One more emotion that will get us off of the couch is a vital impulse. Fear will no longer hinder our progress. The impulse motivates us to reach out one more time. Impulse does not come from long sessions of premeditation. It comes out of the blue and instantaneous. We push ourselves to move while the opportunity presents itself.

    Let us be a successful person who keeps progressing toward our dream/goal.
