Indecision is the problem many people have. I will like to share with you the story of a man. This man, a Reverend, had been dreaming of building a school but all he did was say; “if only I had a million dollars, I would build a school”. Live Your Dreams
One Saturday afternoon, he sat in his room thinking of the means of raising the money to carry out his plan. For nearly two years, he had been thinking but had done nothing. He made up his mind then and there that he would get the one million dollars within a week. How? He was not concerned about that. The main thing was the decision to get the money at a specific time.
The moment he reached a decision to get the money at a specified time, a strange feeling of assurance came over him. Something in him seemed to say: “why didn’t you reach that decision a long time ago? The money was waiting for you all the time”.
Things began to happen in a hurry. He called the newspaper and announced that he would preach a sermon the next morning about what he would do if he had a million dollars. He went to work on the sermon immediately but the task was not difficult because he had been preparing that sermon in his heart for almost two years. Long before midnight, he had finished preparing the sermon. He went to bed with a feeling of confidence, for he could see himself already in possession of the million dollars.
Next morning he rose early, read the sermon, knelt on his knees and asked that his sermon may draw the attention of someone who will supply the needed money. While he was praying, again he had that feeling of assurance that the money would be forthcoming. In his excitement, he walked out without the sermon notes and did not discover until he was on the pulpit and ready to begin delivering it. It was too late to go back for his notes. He said it was a blessing that he could not go back because his subconscious mind yielded the materials he needed.
When he began the sermon, he closed his eyes and spoke with all his heart and soul of his dreams. He not only talked to his audience but also to God. He told them what he would do with a million dollars if that amount was ever placed in his hands. He described the plan he had in mind to organize a great educational institution where young people would learn to do practical things and at the same time develop their minds.
When he had finished and sat down, a man arose from his seat about three rows from the rear and made his way towards the pulpit. Dr. Gunsaulus, the preacher, wondered what the man was coming to do. The man came to the pulpit, extended his hands and said; “Reverend, I like your sermon, I believe you can do everything you said you would do if you had one million dollars. To prove that I believe in you and your sermon, if you will come to my office tomorrow morning, I will give you the million dollars. My name is Phillip D. Armour.”
Dr. Gunsaulus made up his mind Saturday morning and got the money on Monday morning. When you create the road for financial blessings to come, you wonder what you have been doing all the while and where the money was all the time. It literally flows. Make up your mind. Get dissatisfied with where you are now. There are great thoughts and ideas waiting to be released in your life that have capability to make you live your dreams. You have to make up your mind that you will not die in mediocrity. Make up your mind and say to yourself; I am a champion and I will be a shining light and you will live your dreams
To you, your experience may have been such that after trying some ideas and seeing that they did not work, you get frustrated. But you have to hold on to your decisions. Refuse to compromise with the present situation of your life. A great future awaits you and I assure you, you will live your dreams
