We all have some kind of dream that we want to become a reality. Some of us are afraid to make a move. We are afraid of the endless possibilities. Success is like a game of checkers you are on one side of the board and your success is on the other side. You know what you want, but you are stagnant because you do not know which move to make to get there. Your success is not going to fall from the sky.You have to make a move and the time is now. You decide I’m going to make a slight move forward and see what happens. You make a move. It’s nothing major just something to get the game started. So you make a few more moves.You begin to open your mind to the possibility of your dream actually becoming a reality. Therefore you make a few more moves. Now you are playing the game of success. You have now put several pieces of your dream into motion. You’re motivated. You’re pumped. You’re confident. You know you got this. This is just the beginning. You have done the research. You know the expectations. You’ve talked to some people in high places. You know that you are slowly transitioning. The sun is shining bright on your future. You are confident you know you will be successful soon. Now it is time to cross that board. It’s time to go to war with all the odds that are against you. It’s time to come out of your comfort zone. It’s crunch time now. You will see if you are really willing to make sacrifices. Is this what you really want? Are you ready to really put in work? This is the time when you see who is really for you. Will they support your decisions? Are you ready to cross over into the dark zone taking hits from all sides? It’s not going to be easy. So many of us get half way to turning our dream into success then give up. Something doesn’t go as planned then we lose sight of the ultimate accomplishment. We become afraid of rejection, persecution,and most of all failure. You’ve come this far. It’s time to cross that board. You already know it is going to be tough. So prepare yourself. Prepare your mind. Don’t rush. You have to have a plan. You must strategize. Without a strategy, you are doomed for failure. While crossing over many of your plans will fail, but you must not give up. No one is more passionate about your dream than you are. Keep strategizing. Your dream is your success. There are going to be enemies of success. As you see I said enemies meaning more than one. You may not be able to get that business loan, book published, pass that certification, nor be first round draft pick. Still you must not give up. You have to know what you are fighting for. Look at the enemies of success as more reason to push harder, plan smarter, and conquer. It’s not going to be easy. You have to know what you want and go for it. Now it’s time to fight. Do not let fear, depression,doubt, words of discouragement, nor anything else turn you back.There is no jump back in this game. It’s only moving forward. You made it this far. The enemies of success are lined up. What’s your next move?
