Higher and Higher...



Closer to my dreams It's coming over me

I'm getting higher, closer to my dreams I'm getting higher and higher, feel it in my sleep


That feeling when all you thoughts and efforts are going into YOU. Your dream.


Nothing to be ashamed of or guilty of here. It’s like you are flying.

The comfort of knowing that you are where you want to be is more than a great feeling. It’s your motivation for getting up everyday and seeking what you will accomplish each day.


And at the end of the day, you are ready to do it All. Over. Again.


Uh Oh...


Sometimes it feels like I'll never go pass here. Sometimes it feels like I'm stuck forever, ever.


Just as you feel you are flowing with ease towards your dream, you will likely come to a point where you are wondering if you are making any strides, even an inch.


It may feel that you will never go pass a certain point. And if you stay at that point, you won’t go any further. There is always work that can be done during the “waiting period”. You know. That period where you feel as if you are going nowhere.


Feeling stuck is inevitable on any journey. No one is exempt. But guess what? Many people have moved past being stuck! And so can you!


When you find yourself feeling stuck, that’s when you know it time to do things a little differently or change up the game. Stuck does not mean stop.


Think about it. If a car gets stuck in the mud or snow, it’s not stuck forever. There are ways to get unstuck by oneself or with the help of others.


To get out of the mud, one could take the floor mats from the car and place them under the tire so that the tire has something to grip, allowing the driver to continue on their way.

To get out of the snow, perhaps someone in another vehicle comes along and gives your car a push.


Either way, there are ways to become unstuck and keep rolling.



Closer...


But I'm goin' higher, closer to my dreams I'm going higher and higher, I can almost reach


And here you are. Back on your game! The road is smooth and you are flowing once again. You’ve gone further than you ever have before and are seeing things in a new light because you’ve learned some things along the way.


You are climbing and making moves. You see your dream. You can almost touch and taste your dream. It’s right there in front of you.


The power to reach your dream is within you. The more you remain consistent and authentic to yourself, the higher you climb to making your dream a reality.


Move on...

Sometimes you just have to let it go Leaving all my fears to burn and die Push them all away, so I can move on Closer to my dreams


Just when the getting was getting good, the fear of the unknown appears. Doubt starts to creep in. You question whether or not what you are doing is working or is going to work.




The feelings of fear and doubt are roadblocks to your dreams. Push them. Go around them. Do whatever it is you have to do to keep moving. Closer to your dreams.


Be careful not to allow fear to lead you to becoming stuck…again. Sure. We found our way out the first time.


Often times the only thing standing in the way of you getting to your dream…is you. The only person who can change fear into eagerness and doubt into confidence, is you!


So push, and keep moving.


Reaching...


I'm moving upward and onward

And beyond all that I could see Stretching out my arms so I can reach I'm so close, it's like I can just reach


You’ve pushed through barriers standing in your way. Even grown into a new you because you’ve taken some hits along the way that made you stronger and wiser and all that you do now is to move forward and upward.


You’ve overcome what you thought was impossible.


You are in control of not just reaching and touching your dream. But taking it and holding it in the palm of your hands.


No journey is without it’s peaks and valleys. Everyone experiences the ups and downs on different levels.


The key to reaching dreams is to continue the work. As the saying goes:


Dreams are not something to wait for. They are something to work for.
